Q&A With Stormy Brannon
Stormy Brannon is a certified integration coach, and has been trained in transformational coaching and addiction recovery. Her mission is to help her clients gain as much as they can from their therapies. She believes ketamine therapy has the power to be one of the most powerful and transformative experiences a person can have.
We’ve asked her several questions to help people understand how ketamine and integration coaching go hand-in-hand.
Tell us about your educational background
I am a certified integration coach. My services are different from those of a therapist as I specialize in ketamine integration. I am very knowledgeable about this treatment, and I can also relate to the experience because I have undergone it myself.
What inspired you to get into your field?
I have a background in dentistry, but I wanted to have the opportunity to make a bigger impact in the world. I came to the field of integration because this is something I am truly passionate about. I feel that integration is a necessary component to gaining long-term benefits from ketamine therapy. My main goal is to help my clients get the absolute most positive benefit from their treatments.
What are some of your core beliefs that you work to instill in your clients?
Ketamine is not a magic pill. Ketamine has the ability to produce profound results alone, but when it is combined with integration, you can harness its full potential. I believe it is important that my clients be aware of this and be ready to do the deep work when embarking on this healing journey.
Which of your services do you think would be beneficial for clients at Aspen Ketamine Center?
I offer preparation sessions to help people prepare for their ketamine infusions. During these sessions, we will discuss ways to get the most out of the infusions, work on intention setting, and prepare a mindset that is conducive to receiving insights during the treatment. I also offer integration sessions where we will unpack the person's infusion experiences, uncover insights gained, and come up with action steps to apply these insights to that person's life going forward. These two services will help ensure the person gets the most out of their ketamine treatment.
What do you want your clients to get out of your sessions short and long-term?
I want my clients to have an opportunity to express themselves fully and be met with compassion and support. Ketamine therapy can be intimidating for some people, so I work to ensure that my clients feel fully supported throughout their treatment. My goal is to help clients look deeper within themselves so they can uncover parts of themselves that need to be healed. By healing these parts of themselves, the person can then move forward in life feeling more whole. This can be an essential aspect to achieving long-term results.
How do you think ketamine may be of benefit to clients that you work with?
Ketamine has been shown to help people who are struggling with treatment-resistant depression even when all other treatment options have failed. I have seen so many examples of profound growth and healing. I am blown away by the benefits of this treatment every single day.
How do your services supplement the success of a client's ketamine treatment plan?
Ketamine therapy without integration can leave many stones unturned. People can have profound experiences during ketamine infusions, and they can receive powerful insights. Without recognizing these insights and applying them to their lives, there can be a large amount of potential that is wasted.
