A Technology Partner For The Psychedelic Movement.

Sessions is building an easy-to-use and secure platform that extracts meaningful insights from personal journals and recorded sessions to help improve psychedelic research, therapy, and knowledge mobilization. 

We have a mental health crisis. Psychedelic therapy can help.

For decades we have struggled to understand and treat mental health. In recent years, we have seen a resurgence of interest in using psychedelic therapy with substances like ketamine, psilocybin, ibogaine, MDMA and more to treat mental illness and improve people’s quality of life.

It’s a scary, exciting, and important time. Psychedelic nonprofits, businesses, and events are popping up and growing every day. There is so much to do. We believe one of the most valuable things we can do to help the psychedelic movement is to build technology to enable it. 

That’s what we’re doing here at Sessions. We’re developing incredible technology for the incredible needs of the emerging psychedelics space. 

From deep discussions with many parties who are part of the psychedelic ecosystem, we have discovered a need for an intuitive system to help collect and analyze data to better understand the effects of people’s psychedelic therapy and experiences.

The first project we are working on is software that helps capture, analyze, and manage psychedelic therapy sessions, clinical studies, journals, trip reports and more. With more data, we can improve treatment, research, public sentiment, and government policy to help make the healing potential of psychedelics a reality. 

We're Trying To Help Solve

$1 Trillion

Cost of depression and anxiety to global economy due to lost productivity.

Improving Patient
& Clinic Experiences

Software for ketamine and psychedelic clinics and researchers, their patients and individuals having psychedelic experiences. Improve traditional questionnaires and forms with information-rich, easy to create audio and video notes.

Current Process

Many clinics, research organizations, and companies still use paper and pen questionnaires and lean heavily on a screening tools such as the PHQ-9 questionnaire to diagnose symptoms of depression.

This can lead to disappointing results and limited valuable data. We are here to try and help stop that from happening. Sessions can help treatment providers collect data and patients communicate better during their treatment period through easy-to-use processes and software.

Alice
 
“I tried ketamine to treat my depression. Within a day, I felt relief.”
 
James
 
“I can’t really think of any experience in my life that’s been quite so profound. Ketamine has made the difference in virtually every aspect of my life in that before ketamine, I was really trending downward to a pretty dark place. There was not a lot of hope there; there was not a lot of joy there.”
 

Frequently Asked Questions

Why Did You Build Sessions?

When Tyler Bryden was working through childhood trauma, the end of his hockey career, and intense revelations from plant medicine experiences, he used journaling. But, there were no platforms that enabled him to do audio, video, and text notes and then extract insights. So, he formed a team and started building Sessions.

Is Sessions HIPAA Compliant?

Yes, Sessions stands in the highest privacy standards as authorized by HIPAA. All data is encrypted and stored on AWS servers. Prior to deploying the platform for the first time, patient consent is required and we will sign a Business Associate Agreement (BAA) with you/your organization.

Why Should We Work With You?

Sessions has a deep respect for psychedelic therapy including ketamine, psilocybin, ibogaine, MDMA and LSD treatment. Our team is focused being the best software for individuals who are undergoing psychedelic therapy and for the clinics that are administering treatment. 

How Are Patients Monitored Now?

Currently, because ketamine clinics and other psychedelic therapy is just beginning to grow, there is a wide range of methods. Generally, most clinics use paper and pen methods like questionnaires and journals. However, only 11% of patients will keep a pen and paper mood journal. 

What Insights Are You Extracting?

Sessions is extracting meaningful information from users text, audio, and video including topics, keywords, sentiments. We are developing novel ways to extract vocal biomarkers to better understand user’s moods and progress.

How Can We Start Using Sessions?

Submit the contact form below to request a demo! One of our team members will get in touch with you. We will set up an in-person meeting or Zoom call to better understand your clinic, show you how Sessions works and customize a plan based on your needs to provide the best care. 

How Does This Help Patients?

Audio and video journals are intuitive and enable patients to become more mindful of their own mood. When treatment providers received self-reported information they can see up to almost 30% better outcomes. Sessions gives patients more understanding and control of their own mental health and well-being. 

How Does The Application Work?

Users can visit the web app (iPhone and Android apps coming soon). Users can then easily record audio and videos journals that get transcribed and analyzed instantly. Sessions can be used privately and be shared with treatment providers in-person or be shared through the application. The treatment provider and patient view the patient’s approved audio or video insights and make informed, data-driven decisions about treatment plan modifications. 

How Does This Help Clinics?

Clinics and treatment providers can better collect and understand patient’s moods to improve patient care and practice operations. Treatment providers get near instantaneous important information from patients that enable them to prevent relapse, modify treatment and improve patient’s long-term health. Instead of having expensive staff members focused on follow-up emails and calls they can focus on improving customer care and profitability.
