It can be difficult to navigate the challenges of communicating, connecting, and resolving conflicts in a relationship. Seeking help through couples therapy can be a positive step towards improving and strengthening the bond with your partner. While traditional couples counseling can be effective for some, it may not be the right fit for everyone. Oftentimes, after years of being in a relationship with someone, there are emotional scars left deep in our subconscious that no amount of talk therapy can heal.
We see it time and time again, couples “fighting” to stay together. Deep down they truly love each other but they are simply unable to work through the remnants of past hurts – whether intentional or not. Psychedelic psychotherapy, including ketamine therapy for couples, helps eliminate the fight.
Daytryp Health offers this form of therapy for individuals and couples who meet certain qualifications. It is important to find the right fit for you and your partner, and to not be discouraged if a first approach is not successful.
Psychedelic psychotherapy is a form of treatment that uses psychoactive substances, such as ketamine, to enhance therapy sessions. Ketamine, in particular, is a commonly used compound in this type of therapy because it acts on the neurotransmitter glutamate, which has been linked to depression and other mental health conditions.
During a ketamine-assisted psychotherapy session, the patient may experience an elevation in mood and gain insight into memories and emotions that are typically not easily accessible. The ketamine provides a “window of opportunity” for patients to perceive and process challenging feelings in a way that often results in significant change.
When psychedelic psychotherapy is performed multiple times with ketamine, the benefits can accumulate over time, leading to long-lasting positive effects. The psychedelic effects of ketamine will not be present beyond the session, but the individual will continue to experience a sense of peace and clarity.
Ketamine therapy has been shown to have meaningful and positive outcomes for couples looking to enhance and/or repair their relationships.
Ketamine-assisted couples therapy is a unique approach to improving relationships by addressing specific areas of growth. This therapy is designed for both partners to have a profound, heart-opening experience, either individually or together.
Afterwards, the therapist will help to integrate the experience into their relationship. The goal is to create a deep sense of understanding, empathy, and care, which can serve as a foundation for moments of disconnection, re-connection, and deepening connection.
Even if one partner chooses not to participate in the ketamine experience, the therapy itself can still be effective. It can be adjusted to accommodate one partner using ketamine, while the other partner still participates in the journey and integration process.
This form of therapy is not limited to romantic couples, it can also be applied to any relationship seeking healing and reconnection such as parent-child or siblings. It is an open-minded and inclusive approach to healing and connection. It’s important to keep in mind that the therapy may have varying effects on different people and thus, it’s essential to find the best approach that suits both partners.

Ketamine psychotherapy can be a powerful tool for couples seeking to improve their mental and emotional well-being. While traditional counseling can be effective in helping couples learn to communicate and work through their challenges, ketamine psychotherapy provides additional benefits for those dealing with complex mental health issues such as depression, anxiety, and PTSD.
It is also effective at allowing people to release and heal deep seated hurts and traumas, facilitating transformative shifts in a person’s well being, which can be highly beneficial for partners in relationships.
For couples affected by PTSD, the therapy can help break down barriers that prevent emotional connection and intimacy. Trauma can take a heavy toll on relationships, causing feelings of social isolation and intense fear, anger, or depression. Ketamine can blur the boundaries between self and others, creating a sense of safety and protection that allows for deeper emotional connection.
Similarly, for couples affected by depression, ketamine psychotherapy can help to overcome feelings of guilt, shame, and low self-esteem that can make it difficult to accept love from a partner. By breaking down barriers and helping to connect more positively with a partner, the therapy can help restore a sense of closeness and deepen feelings of love.
Even for couples without diagnosed mental health disorders, ketamine therapy can help to renew feelings of closeness and intimacy that may have been lost over time. The therapy can also increase feelings of happiness, calmness, and connection, and provide an opportunity to discuss emotions, thoughts, and concerns in a more open and positive way.
Unless you try it for yourself, it’s impossible to get an accurate sense of what a ketamine therapy session is actually like. Nevertheless, being informed about the different stages of the process can help to reassure you.
Ketamine therapy can be an intense experience. Before you start, your therapist will evaluate if it is the best choice for you and your partner. This will include a review of your physical and emotional wellbeing history, as well as conversations about what you are hoping to achieve from the therapy to ensure that your goals are achievable.
A sense of safety and security is essential when undergoing ketamine treatment. If the therapist is someone you are already familiar with, you’ll likely feel at ease in their presence. If it’s your first time or you’re with a new therapist for the procedure, you will have at least one introductory meeting before the ketamine session so that you can become acquainted with each other and form a sense of trust. We’re confident you’ll feel nothing but healing vibes from all of the staff at Daytryp!
We open the session with a “prayer” for the couple and the ketamine molecule. Then, you will be administered the ketamine dose. The two of you may feel like talking to each other while you experience the effects, or you may prefer to simply be in each other’s presence.
Generally the duration of the experience will last 45 minutes, with the peak of the effects taking place after around 30 minutes and then gradually dissipating. Most couples require between three to six of these treatments to get the long-lasting benefits associated with the therapy.
If you’re considering ketamine couples therapy, it is important to find a qualified and experienced therapist who can guide you and your partner through the process. The team at Daytryp Health are dedicated to supporting couples in achieving freedom from emotional limitations and encouraging healthy, happy paths forward in relationships.

Steve’s involvement, acceptance, and advocacy of the use of entheogenic substances as sacraments for direct spiritual experiences is what has inspired him to work hard to create peace and harmony in both his own life and the lives of those around him.
Steve has made a commitment to rejuvenating his own spiritual life using humanist resources and a humanist perspective. With an emphasis on the mysticism of the unitive experience and the practical use of entheogenic rituals for learning about and developing human consciousness to create a direct connection to the Divine within, Steve has been studying and using a variety of transformational tools. Each has acted as a catalyst in his own consciousness, resulting in profoundly life-altering experiences that have gradually revealed Steve’s true self and pointed him in the direction of his true purpose in life.
Steve’s desire to be of service to others by coaching, mentoring, and guiding them through a shamanic methodology and the practical use of entheogenic rituals is the driving force behind his life’s work, passions, and interests.
Steve loves sharing the knowledge he has gained using many entheogenic sacraments and transformational tools that can help spark a shift in consciousness and result in a profound realization of one’s true nature. Steve also firmly endorses both the idea of cognitive liberty (the right to direct one’s own consciousness) and the safe and appropriate use of entheogenic sacraments for a direct spiritual experience.
Steve has put a lot of effort into learning about and developing the best techniques as a practitioner and guide to provide the right guidance, proper preparation, safe navigation, and holistic integration into the sacred work he performs, and he remains dedicated to his work through practice, mentorship, and study.
There is a prayer in Sanskrit, one of the oldest recorded languages dating back 7000–8000 years, that says, “Lokah Samastah Sukhino Bhavantu.” This means: “May all beings everywhere be happy and free. May the thoughts, words, and actions of my own life contribute in some way to that happiness and that freedom for all.” This is a truth Steve lives by every day.
