Virtual Reality for Mental Health
We now have the option to incorporate Virtual Reality (VR) Technology into our sessions. Using VR, we can practice exercises such as exposure to stressful environments, or sources of fear and phobias in a controlled space before moving into real-world exposures. The use of VR in the treatment of various mental health disorders has been well documented and researched.
CBT Professionals is excited to introduce this new platform, Amelia, to our practice as a welcome addition to our current Cognitive Behavioural Therapy protocols. If you are interested in participating in VR therapy please contact us. Please note that you and your practitioner will decide whether VR is the most appropriate approach for you.
VR therapy is available for both in-person sessions and remotely.
