Virtual reality therapy (VRT is a form of therapy that uses technology (i.e. a virtual reality headset) to immerse the client in a computer-generated environment. The virtual environment is designed to mimic real-life situations or scenarios that trigger the person's symptoms or fears. Through the use of specialized software, the therapist can control and manipulate the virtual environment to gradually expose the individual to their fears or triggers in a controlled and safe manner.

The therapists Chicago Counseling Center are trained in providing VRT to help you conquer fears of the common phobias (flying, driving, heights) as well as concerns related to claustrophobia and social anxiety as well.
