ProReal is an avatar-based, virtual-world software platform which helps people communicate and improve their lives by accelerating insight and change.

Built using 3D gaming technology, this immersive platform helps people create a visual representation of how they experience a situation so they can explore different perspectives, visualise futures and solve problems. Clients enter a secure, virtual landscape and add avatars and props to create representations of real-world scenarios.

Clients experience increased self-awareness and rapid empathy building leading to improved relationships. Costs are reduced by enabling faster and more effective change and communication, without the need to travel. Its use is associated with significant reductions in stress and self-criticism and is being used by a wide range of clients in corporate, social and healthcare settings. Development is underpinned by extensive, ongoing research in clinical and corporate environments
