Simplemente agradecer al equipo que conforma IPITIA, por haberme tratado mi problema de TOC de la manera en la que lo hizo, cambios psíquicos profundos se han producido en mí al punto en el que ya ni siquiera tengo compulsiones, siendo que en Octubre del 2018 llegué por primera vez a una sesión en ese centro con un muy alto nivel de ansiedad. Mi conclusión es que ustedes son como el Messi, Pelé o Cristiano pero tratando los transtornos de ansiedad, me parece increíble prácticamente haber salido de algo que la gran mayoría de los psicólogos me habían dicho que no tenía cura y sin embargo, mediante la metodología AFOP he conseguido prácticamente sanarme y eso que aún no he concluido completamente el tratamiento. Gracias de nueva cuenta IPITIA, me han devuelto por completo la espontaniedad y serenidad en mi vida, vivo con más valentía y sensación de certidumbre ante los obstáculos que la vida me coloque, atrás quedó ya la inhibición y el alto nivel de ansiedad que viví por varios años.

Hola a todos. Me llamo Pablo y hace prácticamente un año hice la terapia del método AFOP con Damián Ruíz y su fabuloso equipo. Llevaba conmigo un problema que acarreaba desde los 21 años, un trastorno obsesivo compulsivo que me impedía hacer todo aquello que en el pasado hacia con total naturalidad. Cuando acabe la terapia sufrí durante dos meses una crisis existencial muy potente, aun no encontraba el significado de porque en el pasado había sido sumiso, hasta que llenándome de valentía me propuse averiguar de que se trataba, hasta que lo encontré, los transforme y por fin canalice. A día de hoy mi situación ha cambiado de una manera sideral, vivo con una vitalidad enorme y de una manera completamente satisfactoria todos los días. El miedo lo sustituí por valentía, la ansiedad dejo de estar latente ya que aprendí que las motivaciones en mi vida conseguían reducirla aplicando también el razonamiento. Doy las gracias de corazón al centro IPITIA , su método hizo que mis ganas de vivir volvieran... nada fue fácil, pero nada es imposible, solo has de demostrar la fuerza que hay en ti. Alguien dijo una vez; para llegar al alba primero has de atravesar el sendero de la noche. Observar quienes sois y sacareis el potencial que lleváis dentro. NADA ES IMPOSIBLE. UN FUERTE ABRAZO.
