    virtual reality and agoraphobia

    I keep hearing information about the use of VR in treating phobias, namely agoraphobia.
    I just wondered if anyone has had any experience of this- either trying it at home with google cardboard, occulus etc, or maybe even in a professional environment?
    comparison is the thief of joy

    Oh wow, No I haven't heard of this, I know they use it for some combat vets who suffer from PTSD, hmmm wonder if it would work for phobias. Will have to research it and see.

    Part of me says, we'd know we were in our houses and that it wasn't real, but then again, that might be a good thing, because we'd associate the walk with the calmness we feel at home.

    I'd be interested in trying it
