How will Anomie take Mental Health to the nextlevelwith VR?
Say goodbye to language barriers and hello to effective, immersive coaching and therapy.
Anomie is revolutionizing the way clients connect with coaches and counsellors. By leveraging the power of virtual reality, we're breaking down the barriers that have held clients back in the past and empowering them to communicate more effectively.
With VR, clients are able to overcome the discomfort and time constraints that come with explaining complex emotions and situations. They're able to communicate in a safe, supportive environment, and coaches are able to provide the guidance and support they need to make real progress.

“It's been such a privilege to see AnomieXR taking shape, and to see how imperative it is for companies to have feedback from clinicians in every part of the development and testing stages.”

It was really eye-opening to the possibilities of what I even thought. It's incredible what you're trying to do with Anomie.”
Rebecca Gill -

“I love how accessible it is, and being able to simplify is just brilliant. I wish other apps would do that. Being able to create your own environment and having that power. I love being able to empower people with that.”
Globally poor mental health leads to approximately 8 million deaths per year. Adoption of 2D online therapy tools have accelerated during the pandemic. However, 2D online therapy is not fully engaging clients. Current online therapy methods have high attrition rates (up to 69%).
New innovative solutions are urgently required to tackle the mental health storm that will be coming.
Anomie was born during the pandemic out of need.It was co-designed with creative art therapists in lockdown and has been piloting withcoaches and therapists worldwide.
When Nina brought VR into prisons for wellbeing in 2018 she realised VR was helping prisoners have less thoughts about self-harm and suicide. What if they could meet a therapist in VR and not have to rely on writing, reading or words?
2020 the lockdown, Nina approached Liam about creating VR art exhibitions focusing on 'negative to positive' stories.
They started experimenting and realised that what they were building could not only help prisoners and young people, but all those struggling to communicate. They started co-designing with therapists and so Anomie was born.
