Benefits of virtual reality for psychology

Main benefits of virtual reality for psychology and mental health

Validated by more than 25 years of scientific studies

VR therapy provides the opportunity for mental health professionals to not only reproduce real-life scenarios but also to adapt and control these environments to suit the individual needs of their clients.

This technology allows mental health professionals to evaluate and identify their client’s fears and anxieties within the safety of a consultation room. VR is a tool that effectively facilitates the application of psychological evaluation and intervention protocols.

Scientifically Validated

More than a decade of controlled studies have proven the effectiveness of virtual reality therapy.
