KETAMINE ASSISTED PSYCHOTHERAPY
WHY KETAMINE-ASSISTED PSYCHOTHERAPY?
The purpose of the ketamine experience is to create an enhanced state of consciousness to facilitate transpersonal and non-ordinary experiences for growth, enhancement of flexibility versus being stuck, and for therapeutic benefit. These may prove valuable in resolving your existential problems, accelerating your psycho-spiritual growth, and leading to positive personal transformation, relationships, and lifestyle improvement. Such change occurs within a structured, supportive connection with a therapist who sees your issues, hopes, desires, and struggles. As a byproduct of your experience, you may improve your emotional state and reduce symptoms that bother you, such as depression, anxiety, and post-traumatic manifestations. You may well notice that you are different after a ketamine experience and that difference may well be liberating and allow for new mindfulness and new behavior.
One of ketamine's benefits is that it increases neuroplasticity, a process that repairs damaged brain synapses or neuron connections, which become impaired over time due to long-term stress, depression, and other suspected factors. Ketamine shifts the brain into a more reparative mode and a corrective state. Old ruminative patterns change with increased mental and cognitive flexibility and openness to new learning and growth.
