NY LICENSED PSYCHOTHERAPIST

KETAMINE-ASSISTED PSYCHOTHERAPY (KAP)

 

What is ketamine-assisted psychotherapy?

Ketamine-assisted psychotherapy is a powerful and innovative approach to treating mental health and emotional issues. This type of psychotherapy uses a low dose of ketamine to help individuals gain insight into their issues and to better understand their own thoughts and feelings. With the help of this therapy, individuals can gain a greater sense of clarity and peace in their lives.

Ketamine-assisted psychotherapy refers to a therapeutic approach that involves the use of ketamine, a powerful anesthetic and dissociative agent, in a therapeutic setting to help individuals address mental health issues and emotional difficulties.

In ketamine-assisted psychotherapy, the ketamine is used as a tool to facilitate a therapeutic process, with the aim of helping individuals gain a deeper understanding of their thoughts, feelings, and experiences. The ketamine is typically administered in a controlled environment, in conjunction with therapy, and under the supervision of trained therapists.

The use of ketamine in therapy has become more common in recent years as new research has emerged suggesting that the substance may have therapeutic potential for a range of mental health conditions, including depression, anxiety, PTSD, and addiction.

It's important to note that the use of ketamine in therapy is still in the early stages of research and is not yet widely accepted as a standard medical treatment. Ketamine is a controlled substance and its use outside of a medical or clinical setting is illegal. It's also important to use ketamine only under the supervision of trained professionals and with careful monitoring of its effects and potential side effects.

 

What happens in a ketamine-assisted psychotherapy session?

 

In a ketamine-assisted psychotherapy session, the individual takes a low dose of ketamine under the supervision of a trained therapist. The dose is typically low enough to induce a state of altered consciousness, but not to the extent that the individual loses touch with reality.

The individual then engages in therapy with the therapist, exploring their thoughts, feelings, and experiences in a deep and introspective way. The altered state of consciousness induced by the ketamine can help individuals to access and process difficult emotions, thoughts, and experiences, and to gain a new perspective on their mental health and emotional difficulties.

The therapy session typically lasts for several hours and is followed by a period of reflection and integration. The therapist may also provide support and guidance for the individual to help them make sense of their experiences and incorporate new insights into their everyday life.

It's important to note that ketamine-assisted psychotherapy is still in the early stages of research and is not yet widely accepted as a standard medical treatment. The use of ketamine in therapy should only be done under the supervision of trained professionals and with careful monitoring of its effects and potential side effects.
