Why download oVRcome?
If you have a phobia that stops you living life the way you want to, oVRcome makes it easy for you to learn powerful skills that help manage your reactions and lessen that heart-beaty, stomach-churny feeling you get when you’re terrified of something.

Once you’ve mastered some skills you can use to calm yourself down when you’re anxious, you’re guided into exposure therapy - the global gold standard in treating phobias. This means, you’ll be in an immersive environment with your fears, but they can’t harm you because they’re not actually there. Now you can practice calming down and conquer your fears in the privacy, convenience, and comfort of your own home!

oVRcome can be accessed via a subscription, that is a fraction of the cost that you would spend visiting a clinician in real life. Whether it’s a fear of spiders you feel is becoming more obvious, or worries about how to talk to people and be appropriately social; oVRcome can help bring more calm into your life. Working on your mental health can be difficult because psychologists, therapists, and counsellors can be very expensive. They also often have waiting lists a mile long. With oVRcome, you’ll be guided to positive, permanent change with a very minimal cost.

oVRcome has been developed in a clinical setting, backed by a robust body of academically accepted, evidence based, peer reviewed literature. It encapsulates the inner workings of psychological theory and proven methodology, delivered in a user friendly, intuitive, and calming package. Best of all, oVRcome is immediately accessible through the convenience, familiarity, and simplicity of your smartphone.

Thank you so much for creating this affordable VR program! I suffer from Agoraphobia and have been seeing a therapist but it hasn't helped much. I was doing the Claustrophobia modules but now I see one for Agoraphobia! Pairing your VR simulations with healthy eating, exercise & sleep...i am slowly getting better. After doing a few of your modules, I was able to go into an elevator with no issues. Hope to report more positive results as I go on. Really appreciate the work put into this program!

Loving this app! Easy to follow, and complete at your own pace. It breaks the phobia down into manageable modules that challenge established thoughts and behaviors in a calm and safe way. The virtual reality aspect gives you full control while working through the graduated exposure therapy. A helpful app for anyone struggling with social anxiety.

I have Arachnophobia,and have been using the ovrcome app for a few months now. I can highly recommend the app to help you manage and even overcome your fears. Although I still have a way to go, I can now put myself in a place I know spiders "may" be. I can watch them on the TV and not need to leave the room. Yes I still get fright when unexpected happens, but I can manage this fear a lot better. Through the relaxing, breathing and meditation parts of the program I am sleeping a lot better. 🙂
