As part of your recovery from your extreme ironing accident you may need extreme ironing accident counselling. Psychological trauma can produce some debilitating symptoms that if left untreated may have a devastating impact on your life.
Recovering from an accident
An accident during any extreme sport such as extreme ironing can be very serious and is undoubtedly very frightening to experience. It is important after your accident that you take some time to come to terms with your experiences. Take time to be with family and friends, talk about the accident and how it has made you feel, and make sure you get plenty of rest.
To start with you may feel too bewildered to cope with anything other than your physical injuries and it is only once you are better that the psychological symptoms start. These may include panic attacks, flashbacks and nightmares.
You may experience times of extreme emotion and anger. If your injuries prove to be life changing or permanently disfiguring you may need some support coming to terms with the changes. This when extreme ironing accident counselling can be highly beneficial
What is extreme ironing accident counselling?
There is often no quick fix to psychological trauma. Instead you may need regular sessions with a counsellor. You will be encouraged to talk about your experiences and feelings.
Many accident victims report finding that counselling can provide them with a safe place to let their emotions out. You may also be taught strategies to help you cope with some of the symptoms of psychological trauma such as panic attacks and anger.
How to get counselling
If you think you may need extreme ironing accident counselling you should make an appointment with your GP or discuss your symptoms with the doctors in charge of your case. They can refer you to counselling on the NHS.
Unfortunately, as with many NHS services, there are often long waiting lists for counselling. You can avoid the wait by seeing a private counsellor, although this can be expensive.
