Pro Real is a computer-based way of getting support and is available to 11-25 year olds. It uses a 3D environment, where you can place virtual people and objects in a 3D world. You can then make these characters talk to each other and act in meaningful ways.
Built using 3D gaming technology, Pro Real helps you create a visual representation of how you are experiencing a situation, enabling you to explore different perspectives and solve problems.
ProReal can help especially if you struggle with talking, as you can use the software to help you explain what’s going on.
This is a form of counselling/therapy, delivered by a trained OTR therapist and using a PC, laptop or tablet. Lots of young people tell us they like it as an alternative to face-to-face support. We can offer this over 12 sessions, depending on the support that you need.
ProReal can help you explore lots of things, including your feelings, relationships, and situational problems.
When you sign up for OTR, we need to take some really basic info from you, such as your contact details. This means we can get in touch with you when we have availability so we can discuss getting started - so please double-check the details you're giving us are correct!
Anything you talk about with one of our team is kept totally private within OTR. We won’t share what you tell us with anyone else. But if there was an extreme situation, like if you or someone else was at risk of being seriously hurt, then we would need to break confidentiality to keep you safe.
If this happened we would discuss it with you first and do our best to make sure you were involved in any decisions that have to be made. We know this can be scary and you might not want us to share anything, but we will support you through the whole thing.
