Ketamine has a long history of medical safety and is now being offered off-label in support of many mental health issues including anxiety and trauma related issues. I work with an MD prescriber and am certified in Psychedelic Assisted Psychotherapy through CIIS's post graduate program for therapists and providers. I am trained in this work through Polarisinsight.org and I am a supervisor at Sage Insititute.
Psychotherapy with the support of this medicine can offer a break from the default thought patterns and identities that can impede growth, especially for those struggling with anxiety and OCD. It can offer distance to more easily process traumatic memories that were previously too hard to face.
Changes can happen faster in this way.
