Individual Online Therapy for OCD
At IPITIA we offer online psychotherapy for obsessive compulsive disorders and anxiety following our AFOP® Methodology.
It is an effective modality aimed at people, who due to their place of residence or other mobility-related issues, cannot visit our center in Barcelona for regular face-to-face sessions.
Online sessions take place through videoconferences (Skype) permitting proximity between patient and psychologist by reducing the distance barrier.
Sessions can be weekly or biweekly and of one hour or half an hour with a member of the team of IPITIA.
How does the payment work?
The payment is processed through bank transference or Paypal. Once you have set up an appointment with us we will send you a confirmation email. In this email you will find all the necessary information to make the transference. It is important to send a confirmation of the transference at least 24 hours before the session takes place, for the session to be confirmed.
*Those who have online sessions have to take the time-difference into account. The timetable will be adapted as much as possible to fit the needs of both the patient and the psychologist. However, the patient is responsible to assist to the sessions on time.
Online group therapy sessions have a biweekly frequency and last 1h. 30m. Formal enrollment is required.
The groups have a total of minimum 5 and maximum 10 participants.
The sessions are completely confidential. The sessions take place in a therapeutic setting and are therefore bound by the same therapist-client privileges as if they would be face-to-face.
The sessions are led by Damián Ruiz, Clinical Psychologist (Member of the COPC 7884), founder of the AFOP® method for the treatment of Obsessive Disorders and severe anxiety, and the director of IPITIA (Institut Psicològic Internacional de Barcelona).
