Safely Express Your Feelings 

Research shows the numerous benefits of using an avatar in a virtual environment. Digital representations of you can create a sense of comfort and allow you to safely express your feelings and experiences. One Australian study found that over 25% of people prefer to speak about negative experiences during therapy in virtual reality versus face to face.¹

Effectively Address Your Needs

Research shows virtual interactive spaces for counseling can be just as effective as in person counseling. Studies also show cognitive behavioral therapy using virtual spaces with your digital self facilitated by licensed mental health professionals can be just as effective as therapy in real life.²
