If you had a traumatic kite landboarding accident, you may be on the lookout for suitable kite landboarding accident counselling options. You were perhaps injured by crashing into an obstacle or other kite landboarder, or because the kite landboard you were on was unsafe to use.
Kite landboarding can be great fun, but it could also be risky. A serious injury could have left you traumatised, or suffering from insomnia, depression, painful flashbacks or anxiety attacks. Expert kite landboarding accident counselling can help you restore your normal psychological well-being.
Get the kite landboarding accident counselling you need
Kite landboarding typically involves fast speeds over wide open terrains. Both beginners and more practiced individuals run the risk of falling over, colliding with objects on the terrain or being struck by other kite landboarders. Many such accidents can be perfectly harmless and involve no more than slight cuts and bruises.
Kite landboarding accident counselling may be needed if your injury was more severe. It is important to stress that your psychological wellbeing is not necessarily linked to your physical health: you may have been deeply traumatised in a kite landboarding accident that left you physically unharmed.
Counselling through the NHS
You can look for kite landboarding accident counselling through the NHS. Speak with your GP to see if you can be referred to a suitable counsellor. You can also check online to see which mental health counsellors are working in your local area.
Sometimes, NHS care can involve being placed on a waiting list. You may have to wait for a few weeks, or sometimes months, before you can start to receive treatment. In some cases, this can pose no problem, if you do not suffer too severely from the side effects of a trauma. If you find yourself unable to live your normal life, you may have to look for other ways in which to start your treatment as soon as possible.
Private kite landboarding accident counselling
You may wish to consider private kite landboarding accident counselling. Going private can mean that you are able to avoid being placed on a waiting list. Of course, private healthcare involves paying for your own care directly. You may be worried that this cost would be prohibitive in your circumstances.
This is where Accident Advice Helpline could be able to help. If your kite landboarding accident was caused by someone else and happened in the last three years, you could be able to make a claim for financial compensation. You can then use a successful accident claim to help pay towards your private counselling costs.
