First let’s look at an introduction to the tool:
Here is an example of how ProReal can be used for young person’s therapy:
ProReal is great for self-compassion work:
ProReal is used in school counselling with fantastic results:

I know that for gamers and more advanced VR users this software might seem a bit simplified, however that is exactly why it is so powerful. Remember what Minecraft did for gaming? Well, I think ProReal might be doing just that for VR therapy: simplified tool allows more imagination and thus more self-reflection.
I will share the results of my summer VR coaching work in September, but for now I will leave you with a final note: take a moment to explore the opportunity of VR therapy or coaching and your personal feelings around it.
