PSYCHOTHERAPY SUPPORTED WITH ALTERED STATES OF CONSCIOUSNESS

Augmented Psychotherapy

OUR OFFER

Augmented Psychotherapy

We offer you an intensive outpatient treatment with Augmented Psychotherapy. In Augmented Psychotherapy, the effectiveness of psychotherapy is enhanced with additional techniques – in our clinic, these are altered states of consciousness. These are evoked with pharmacological methods, such as ketamine, or with non-pharmacological methods. In this treatment concept, psychotherapy and medication are not separate from each other, but are combined to reach a greater effectiveness.

KETAMINE

1) Ketamine-augmented psychotherapy

We offer you intensive outpatient treatment with ketamine-assisted psychotherapy in our clinic in Berlin Friedrichshain.

We will work with you to create an individual treatment plan which includes multiple ketamine-assisted psychotherapy sessions to induce altered states of consciousness. If you cannot receive ketamine, we will use non-pharmacological methods, for example specific breathing techniques or stroboscope light.

Ketamine infusions are conducted and supervised by medical doctors specializing in anesthesiology, and psychotherapy is conducted by therapists licensed in depth psychotherapy and behavioral therapy. We use ketamine as an atypical psychedelic and work with our patients’ experiences from the ketamine sessions in a structured manner.

INTEGRATION

2) Psychedelic integration

Public interest in the therapeutic, but also recreational use of psychedelics has steadily increased in recent years. We see ourselves as responsible for providing the best possible integration work. In doing so, we neither condemn nor promote the use of psychedelics, but rather dedicate ourselves to helping you integrate experiences in the sense of learning and processing, as well as minimizing harm.

You can contact us if you have had an intense experience of an altered state of consciousness (for example, an experience with psychedelic substances), or are considering undertaking one, and would like to better integrate extraordinary experiences into your life. We can also help you if you have experienced severe psychological problems such as anxiety, “flashbacks”, depressive symptoms, or symptoms of altered perception, for example derealization, feelings of persecution, or hallucinations.

OUTLOOK: CLASSIC PSYCHEDELICS

3) Psychotherapy with psilocybin, LSD, MDMA

Psychedelic-assisted psychotherapy has become an increasing focus of scientific research in recent years. In the last decade, several large clinical trials have begun to investigate the efficacy of psychedelic substances in the treatment of psychiatric disorders. Questions in this research include the therapeutic benefits of psilocybin (a serotonergic psychedelic) and MDMA (an atypical psychedelic) in conditions such as depression, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), and anxiety disorders.

The team at our clinic is actively taking the lead in shaping this promising research in Germany. At present, it is not possible to treat patients with the above-mentioned substances in Germany outside of clinical trials. We are working towards a change in the legal situation according to scientific findings. We will then be one of the first centers in Germany to be able to offer psychedelic therapy with psilocybin and other classic psychedelics.
