What Is Ketamine-Assisted Psychotherapy (KAP)?
Ketamine-Assisted Psychotherapy (KAP) takes a holistic approach to healing, tackling not just the symptoms, but also the negative thought patterns, lifestyle factors, trauma, coping skills, and chemical systems in the brain, allowing it to be highly effective where other treatments have failed.
There is mounting evidence to suggest that, by combining two dynamic, evidence-based tools – ketamine and therapy – improvements in depression severity are much longer-lasting.1
A few weeks of Ketamine Assisted Therapy can accelerate the therapeutic process, allowing you to achieve what you might after many years of traditional talk therapy. The introspective nature of KAP enhances emotional growth, overall well-being, and quality of life.
How KAP works.
Ketamine-Assisted Psychotherapy (KAP), is powerful but gentle. Unlike antidepressants which help manage symptoms, Ketamine Assisted Therapy helps to get to the root of the problem, so you can heal.
Ketamine opens the door to psychedelic exploration, allowing you to objectively revisit past events, life experiences, and traumas. When paired with the structure and support of talk therapy, you’re able to process and understand these moments so that you can let go of some of the emotional attachments that you might be stuck on.
Ketamine has the ability to alter the neural pathways in the brain and, when combined with therapy, can change persistent depressive thought patterns.
In contrast to traditional anti-anxiety medications, Ketamine Assisted Therapy does not typically cause serious long-term side effects.
KAP enables you to revisit past traumas more safely and confidently, helping you to process your emotions and heal from these experiences.
