Our mission is to deliver evidence-based psychological treatments using state-of-the-art immersive technology

We know that the most effective treatments are active: patients go into the situations they find difficult and practise more helpful ways of thinking and behaving. This is often impractical in face-to-face therapy, but easily done in VR. We take a cognitive therapy approach, basing therapeutic techniques on a tested theoretical model of each problem. The automated therapy is therefore tailored for each condition, with its efficacy demonstrated in clinical trials.

OVR therapy is automated using a virtual coach for therapy delivery, standardising clinical excellence and adherence to protocol with genuine ease of use. In VR we can create powerful simulations of the scenarios in which psychological difficulties occur, providing a safe space to try new behaviour. Despite a simulated environment, the mind and body behave as if it were real. This means that the lessons learned in VR transfer into everyday life.
