How long will it take for me to notice any improvements?

With AFOP® change can be quick. Most clients notice a considerable improvement after 10 sessions and feel cured after 6 months-2 years.

Which factors influence the outcome of therapy?

For AFOP® to work, it is really important to open yourself up to the advice of the therapist, since this is key to liberating yourself. Another main factor is your motivation for personal change, and the time you can dedicate to it outside the therapist’s office. In general you could say that the more time you dedicate outside the session, the sooner you will notice improvements.
