Why us

We support individuals with anxiety and phobias through ground-breaking interventions.

We offer a unique virtual reality treatment which will help reduce anxieties and treat phobias for children, young people and adults. By combining traditional Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT) with Virtual Reality (VR), our therapists can recreate scenes tailored to the patient’s individual needs. The unique treatment can be adapted by the therapist in real time, they have complete management of the rate of exposure to the phobia, controlling the volume or pace of the chosen scene.

Initially, our treatment was aimed at people with autism who had a specific phobia or anxiety. But now we are expanding it to treat those with mental health issues and to those whose lives have been restricted by a phobia.

Our methods have been extensively tested and have been commended by NHS practitioners. XR Therapeutics was formed following almost a decade of research into immersive therapy using VR by Newcastle University.

Saves Time & Cost

XRT reduces waiting times and treats symptoms within 2 weeks, as opposed to 12-16 weeks for traditional CBT therapies.

Easy to Install

XRT is easy to install, operate and maintain. Our technology does not require the user to wear a headset.

Proven Impact

XRT is the product of over 9 years of academic research and clinical trials, working closely with end users and those close to them.

How it works

We use our immersive studio to display life-like digital scenes and audio which can be controlled and adapted by a therapist in real-time.

The digital scenes are created to treat specific phobias and anxiety triggers, they are also tailored according an individual’s needs, background and cultural preferences.
