Oxford VR is a virtual reality programme to treat fears of height.
Your virtual coach will offer you techniques, support and advice with the guidance of a member of our team.
OxfordVR is a prescribed app designed to be used alongside face to face support provided by our talking therapy services.
OxfordVR was developed by Prof. Daniel Freeman, Professor of Clinical Psychology and NIHR Research Professor at the University of Oxford.
The virtual environment is based in a building with 10 floors, with interactive, fun, challenging tasks on each floor.
Treatment will take place in one of our clinic rooms, over 3 to 5 sessions, where you will be in virtual reality for up to 30 minutes.
