Visualization techniques help develop a way to retrace past memories that provided compassion, safety, warmth, and an overall sense of well-being. Additionally, visualization can provide the opportunity to address fears, worries, difficult emotions, or major events that we don’t feel we are ready to address yet such as public speaking or traveling on a plane. Practicing visualization techniques can be a great way to practice your performance.
The introduction of higher quality Virtual Reality augments the effect significantly. This is incredibly helpful for applying a safe application of exposure type therapy and testing out real-world situations in the safe and structured confines of an office visit.
