Our method for OCD and Anxiety

In IPITIA we treat Obsessive Disorders (OCD) and Anxiety Disorders with our own method, which sintesizes and integrates different psychological approaches such as Jungian Analysis, the biopsychological theory of Millon, Psychobiology and Ethology. It is an Analytical- Experiental method which we named the AFOP (Drive, Focalization and Activation) method. 

Our method is based in an integral and immersive approach, in which we focus on all the different aspects of the patient’s life in order to unblock the central nervous system.

We have a strong commitment with the patient, breaking with the traditional aseptic and distant therapeutical bond, in order to accompany you fully. 

We have an experienced team of psychologists with a profound Academic education who contribute to the synthesis of Our Method with their varied backgrounds.

We engage in continuous Internal Evaluation through psychological tests, self-evaluation tests, as well as treatment satisfaction inquiries.
