What Is Ketamine Assisted Psychotherapy?
In short, it’s a journey. Your therapist prepares you for and guides you through your unique psychedelic experience. Follow-up sessions offer support and guidance as you integrate new information to create lasting changes.
Ketamine creates an avenue to access the core self so you can realign with what truly matters to you.
Ketamine-assisted psychotherapy is a pathway to access a non-ordinary state of consciousness, allowing one to experience a disruption from unhelpful thoughts and patterns of being. By loosening the grip of the ego and the habitual mind, ketamine can help us untether from our limiting beliefs and narratives.
This disruption in engrained ways of thinking and behavior creates space for exploration from a more accepting place. With the guidance of a trained therapist, we can safely explore our inner world and discover new perspectives and insights. We can also access emotions and memories that may be difficult to reach in ordinary states.
This curiosity allows us to make positive changes that may otherwise feel overwhelming or out of reach. By reconnecting with our authentic self and our deeper values, we can find more meaning and purpose in our lives. We can also heal our relationships with ourselves and others, and cultivate a sense of belonging and compassion.

“IIT’s professionalism and deep knowledge of the body and mind made it easy for IIT to walk me through the process and make me feel comfortable and safe.”
“I found symptom relief right away following the first medicine session, and after further treatments I no longer see myself as a trauma patient; the symptoms (invasive thoughts, nightmares, anxiety, hopelessness, irritability) have dissipated and in their place is a deep gratitude for all the miraculous wonder of nature, including the power of love.”
