    Ice yachting accident counselling


    When you are dealing with the aftermath of a serious injury on the ice, psychological issues can often add to your problems, and ice yachting accident counselling can do a lot to help. The NHS rarely provides specialist services like this, and those it does provide tend to have long waiting lists. If you are struggling to find the money to get private counselling, a successful compensation claim could help. At Accident Advice Helpline we specialise in helping people to make claims like this and we have a very successful record of accomplishment, so call us or fill out our online compensation claim form to find out what we could do in your case.

    Three ways counselling can help

    Ice yachting accident counselling has three main points of focus. What you need will depend on the nature of your accident and how it has affected you, but it could include one or more of the following elements:

    • Mental health counselling. This is aimed at helping you deal with the emotional impact of your accident and overcome problems like anxiety, depression, panic attacks, night terrors and sudden mood swings.
    • Adjustment counselling. This is designed to give you the coping skills you need to handle abrupt and long-term changes to your way of life caused by severe injuries, and to help you deal with an altered body image.
    • Brain injury counselling. If you have suffered brain damage due to concussion, drowning or hypothermia, this can help you regain emotional control and can act as a counterpart to rehabilitative psychiatric treatment.

    When considering problems like this, it is important to listen to your family and friends. Sometimes they will spot things that you have not identified yourself, especially if you are feeling generally overwhelmed by what has happened. You should also talk to your doctor, who will be able to advise you on what sort of counselling is most appropriate for you.

    What Accident Advice Helpline can do for you

    If your doctor confirms that you need counselling, and if your accident meets the standard criteria for a claim (it was not your fault, you got medical treatment soon afterwards and less than three years has elapsed since), we can help you to make a compensation claim. That claim can include funding for private treatment of this sort. Courts understand how debilitating the psychological effects of accidents can be so they are often happy to make awards like this in order to help people recover.

    At your request, we can introduce you to a specialist sports injury solicitor who is familiar with the counselling process. All our solicitors understand the emotional difficulty of dealing with accidents and they will handle your case sensitively, making the process as stress-free as possible.

    If you want to claim on behalf of somebody who has suffered a brain injury that makes it impossible for them to claim directly, give us a call and we will advise you on how to go about it. Whatever your circumstances we will do our very best to help.
