Ketamine Assisted Psychotherapy (KAP)

Ketamine Assisted Psychotherapy (KAP) is, for now at least, the only legal form of Psychedelic Assisted Psychotherapy in  a non clinical trial setting. It capitalizes on the neurochemical effects of Ketamine, which are anti-depressant, anti-anxiety, and anti-suicidal largely via the GABA and Glutamate systems, and uses the psychological or experiential component as a window of opportunity to do some deep therapeutic work. 

You can learn more about the specifics of Ketamine here, as well as the general framework for Psychedelic Assisted Psychotherapy from some of my other articles.

I use Ketamine not only for pathologies, such as Depression, Anxiety, OCD, etc. etc. - for which it is obviously quite useful - but also to deepen the therapy, work with people who are 'feeling stuck' in the therapy or in their lives, and simply to aid in the further exploration of one's psyche. 

 

If you are interested in working with me in a KAP context, you do not need to be an existing, long term client. We can do an acute KAP protocol, and if you have an existing therapist, I can liaison with them to integrate your KAP experience into your ongoing therapy. If you don't have an existing therapist, KAP can still be useful as a stand-alone protocol.
