Jason Freeman

VR Treatment Designer

I am a virtual reality treatment designer, working in the Oxford Cognitive Approaches to Psychosis (O-CAP) research group.

I have helped design several VR psychological therapies, including Phoenix (an intervention to improve self-confidence in young people with psychosis); gameChange; a treatment for height phobia; and a treatment for needle phobia in young people. I am currently working on a digital version of Feeling Safe, a ground-breaking psychological treatment for persecutory delusions produced by Daniel Freeman and the O-CAP team. The digital version, named Feeling Safer and funded by the National Institute for Health and Care Research, is due to be trialled in 2024.

With Daniel Freeman, Mel Slater, Bernhard Spanlang, and Mavi Sánchez-Vives, I am a co-founder of Oxford VR, a spinout company from the University.

Also with Daniel Freeman, I have co-authored a number of popular science books on mental health issues.
