Step 2: Preparation

Psychedelic experiences can be among the most intense and meaningful of an individual’s life. Given this, in-depth preparation is an essential component of the Odyssey Therapy Model.

Preparation includes counselling sessions, intention setting and psychedelic education via Odyssey Online, along with other healing practices like breathwork, mediation and somatic techniques.

Participants undergo a counselling session to become clear on their intention and explore personal history which may emerge during the medicine session
We work to reveal the conscious and unconscious beliefs, hopes, and fears related to the psychedelic experience
We provide in-depth psychedelic education to create reasonable expectations, guidance on navigating the experience, and the importance of integration
Participants will also be informed on the guidelines, practicalities, and step-by-step process of the medicine session
Our client portal Odyssey Online, gives convenient connection and access to therapeutic content and other healing modalities like yoga, breathwork and mediation

Step 3: IM Ketamine Treatment

The medicine session environment with the oversight of the care team is designed to keep you safe so you can go deep into the experience. 

The experience itself will take place in a comfortable and beautiful room, broadly resembling a living room.

Step 4: Post Treatment Follow-up Call

A 15-minute follow-up call will be provided within 24 hours of the medicine session.

The nurse will check in, inquiring about physical symptoms to ensure there are no medical concerns that need addressing. If there are, the medical team is alerted for prompt action.

Findings are then documented in the patient profile.

Step 5: Continued Integration

Without integration, the psychedelic experience fades from memory, without making a lasting impact. 

The period following a medicine session is commonly referred to as integration. Integration involves interpreting what came up during your experience and devising a concrete plan to integrate insights and new perspectives into your life.

Participants can make use of Odyssey Online filled with guided meditations and breathwork sessions.

‘Integration helps make altered states into altered traits.’

Within 48 hours after a Ketamine treatment, the participant has a one-on-one counselling session with a counsellor specialized in psychedelic-assisted therapy
Clients are encouraged to use the Odyssey Online resources and classes such as mindful movement and meditation after the medicine session to learn wellness techniques that support integration
