If you are struggling to come to terms with your hot tub accident then you may benefit from hot tub accident counselling. Most people will use a hot tub as a pleasant, relaxing experience; however, if that changes to become a painful, frightening experience this can be very traumatic. In the immediate aftermath of a hot tub accident all the attention is usually focused on the physical injuries. However, it is also important to consider the emotional and psychological effects of the accident. These may continue to trouble you long after the physical injuries have healed.
Hot tub accidents can result in a variety of injuries and the psychological impact can be equally varied. Accidents may lead to Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) or depression. A burn or scald victim might need counselling to help them come to terms with what may be permanent disfigurement. There is no right or wrong way to feel after a hot tub accident, but feelings can include shock, anger and shame. The psychological trauma of an accident can also cause physical symptoms such as breathlessness, insomnia and fatigue. You might find yourself suffering from nightmares, anxiety attacks and flashbacks. If you are struggling with the emotional or psychological impact of your accident it is important to seek help as early as possible.
The first thing to do is to tell your doctor how you are feeling. They may refer you to a counsellor. Accident counselling is available on the NHS, but waiting lists are often long resulting in a delay in receiving the treatment you need. Consulting a private counsellor will speed up the treatment, but can be expensive. Depending on where you live it could cost up to £70 a session and a number of sessions may well be needed to make a difference.
