BBC News

Patients wear a headset that projects a life-sized image, firstly of an adult and then of a child.

The new research tested the technology for the first time on patients with a mental health problem.

The project is part of a continuing study at University College London.

The university, which is working in collaboration with ICREA-University of Barcelona, has suspected for several years that virtual therapy could help with mental health conditions.
