Clinic InfoAbout your Clinic:
Awakn Clinics were the first psychedelic-assisted clinics in the UK and Europe, providing evidence based cutting edge treatments for mental health and addiction. This approach combines talking therapy with sessions assisted by psychedelics. We use Ketamine-Assisted Therapy. Awakn currently has four clinics throughout the UK and Norway.
This combination has unique effects on the brain circuitry associated with unhelpful thinking and behavioural patterns. It may allow you to work through issues in ways that have not been possible with therapy alone, and help you to relearn the behaviours and thought patterns that hold you back.
If other therapies and treatments have failed to deliver, ketamine therapy may offer potential to create fundamental changes that deliver profound improvements to your mental health.Description of Services:
At Awakn Clinics Trondheim we offer Ketamine-Assisted Therapy for following indications:
- Anxiety Disorders
- Eating Disorders
Addiction – like anxiety, depression, PTSD and Binge Eating Disorder – is based on patterns of behaviour established in the brain, often in response to trauma.
Our approach using Ketamine, disrupts the brain circuits that underpin these unhelpful patterns. The Ketamine weakens the neural connections linked to harmful thought patterns and addictions, opening the door for our trained and skilled therapists to harness this flexibility and help clients to develop more effective ways of responding to challenging thoughts and feelings and to make lasting behavioural changes in their lives. Using ketamine in combination with talking therapy can facilitate psychological breakthroughs, which therapy alone can often fail to achieve.
Our highly experienced clinicians deliver a course of bespoke therapy, which includes several sessions which include doses of medical grade ketamine, administered in a safe therapeutic setting.
This is an entirely new paradigm for mental health and we believe this is the biggest change to psychiatry in 100 years.Practitioners:

Our ProcessOverview of Experience:
We recommend a treatment course that starts with 2 preparation sessions, this would then be followed by four ketamine sessions with an integration session after each ketamine dosing. This is the treatment regime that has produced the greatest efficacy, however if your budget or circumstances do not allow this, we will work with each patient to tailor the best possible course of treatment for you.
Over the course of the therapeutic sessions, the ketamine dose will be collaboratively adjusted according to your individual response.
All psychotherapy sessions, both non-drug and drug-assisted, will take place face-to-face (in person) at an Awakn clinic. We do not offer remote/Zoom sessions. This means clients must be either resident near the clinic or committed to travel on a regular basis throughout the therapeutic course.
For alcohol addiction treatment the course of 7 sessions over 4 weeks with some preparation calls possibly needed before the face-to-face treatment begins.Intake Process:
Clients can get in touch with us via email, phone or can book an appointment or an initial introductory call on the booking portal on our website. Our medical team will invite you in for an assessment before treatment begins to ensure the treatment is suitable for you.Psychedelic Substance Offered:
