From KHP to KAH

How the Treatment was born and grew

Based on my knowledge about Psilocybin Assisted Psychotherapy and training in Hypnotherapy I have developed the so-called “Ketamine Hypnosis Package” (KHP) in 2018. During this time I supervised Ketamine infusions in the psychosomatic clinic "Instituto Dr. Scheib" in Mallorca. Two years later during the Corona pandemic in the summer of 2020 I built up a private practice for Dr. Scheib in Berlin to offer Ketamine Therapy in Germany.​

How the training program for professionals evolved

In 2019 I asked Prof. Dr. Dirk Revenstorf if we wanted to start a training program in KHP for physicians, psychologists and therapists. The KHP program aims to link the fields of medicine, psychology and hypnosis more closely with the approach to develop practical skills in working with altered states of consciousness.

 

Recently 23 participants went through the training for the second time in Berlin at AWP*.

My Approach

Treating with Ketamine – a safe and effective therapeutic experience?

Ketamine itself shows promising therapeutic benefits but administered alone it can be very challenging for many clients. KAH was developed to support clients with a long history of suffering within their ongoing therapy process. KAH can help them to access their resources and develop new ways of thinking and behavior. Treated with KAH, most patients successfully came back into balance and could integrate their gained knowledge into everyday life. 

 

Market, Risks & Chances!

The use of Ketamine in therapy requires medical and psychological knowledge and belongs in professional hands! The growing interest in substance assisted therapy longs for increased education, exchange and sharing of previous knowledge about the subject. 

My Vision

My experiences with KAH show the effectiveness in many psychiatric cases that had almost given up. My credo in my therapeutic work is to feel 'comfortable in letting go’. I personally believe in the strong potential of interdisciplinary work collaboration.  

 

If something has been found that can effectively help so many people from diverse cultures, even with various disease histories – why not collaborate and share the knowledge gained in treatments to help as many people as possible?
