VR can make therapy a safer and more tailored experience for you when compared to traditional in-person therapy.
VR in therapy can offer a more immersive experience through multi-sensory approaches. With VR, there’s a feeling of “embodiment”, where you feel that what you’re seeing is what you’re truly experiencing. This means VR can be used to expose yourself to difficult things, in a controlled environment to build distress tolerance and emotional regulation.
Exposure or empathy therapy can help cope with trauma, anxiety, depression, OCD, body dysmorphia, and many others.
Your experiences can be tailored ahead of time and even in the moment. Your individual needs will be heard, so that you can have an experience that can be modified accordingly to generate effective long-term results.
