Who is it for?

OxfordVR is aimed at people who have referred into our talking therapy services, TalkingSpace Plus in Oxfordshire or Healthy Minds in Buckinghamshire.

How should it be used?

OxfordVR is a prescribed app designed to be used alongside face to face support provided by our talking therapy services.

Developed by experts

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.

OxfordVR is a prescribed app. It should only be used alongside a face to face intervention provided by a mental health worker.
