Forest Bluff Counseling and Virtual Reality: Virtual Reality is at the cutting edge of modern treatment. It can be used to treat many problems such as Phobias, Traumas, Panic, Generalized Anxiety, Addictions and OCD. In the recent past, this technology could only be found in big hospital settings. However, thanks to science and faster technological advancements this mode of treatment is now available for use in outpatient practices. At Forest Bluff Counseling we pride ourselves for being at the cutting edge of treatment and we are proud to be one of the first outpatient center in the Chicagoland area to have this option readily available for our clients.

Virtual Reality is a technologically advanced way to provide exposure therapy. In essence, through the use of goggles the person will be virtually immersed in a situation that they perceive as uncomfortable or anxiety provoking. With the assistance of the therapist the client will learn to teach their brains to better handle the triggering situations. The exposures are carefully selected for each individual and designed to be progressively challenging yet doable.

Virtual Reality provides a safer way to do exposures since many situations are harder to recreate in real life such as a war scene for veterans with PTSD. Virtual Exposure is also much more cost and time efficient for example, if someone is scared of airplanes or heights, we do not have to buy a flight ticket or take a trip to a high rise building, instead we can simulate these fear inducing situation through virtual reality. Our goal at Forest Bluff Counseling is to open up your world of possibilities and teach you to conquer your fears as quickly as possible.
