How it works Virtual Reality Therapy?
Each patient benefits from a personalized and exclusive approach.
Virtual Reality Therapy involves 3 stages – Assessment & Diagnosis, Anxiety Management and Virtual Reality Exposure Therapy. The treatment contains on average 10-12 exposure sessions of approximately 40-50 minutes, in the presence of the psychotherapist. The person that uses the therapy faces their fear or cue in a virtual world, which simulates the situation generating phobia or addiction.
The patient wears goggles and headphones and experiences visual, auditory, olfactory and kinesthetic (or physical) information immersing them in the situation..
Assessment & Diagnosis
In the first session, we make a general introduction to the program and discuss with patients the reasons that bring them to therapy. We identify together the triggers of fear or addiction.
In sessions 2 and 3, the patient is ready to start the Virtual Therapy sessions. At this stage, the patient participates in an Anxiety Management program in which he learns relaxation techniques and cognitive restructuring.
Virtual Therapy Sessions
At this stage, the patient begins the Virtual Reality Exposure Therapy sessions which can last between 8 and 10 sessions. Depending on the specifics of the disease, the patient is gradually exposed, in a therapeutic manner, to the stimulus that triggers his fear or addiction.
