If you recently suffered a traumatic accident while exercising, you may be looking for personal trainer accident counselling. Counselling can be necessary to help you regain your mental well-being, which may have been harmed because of your physical injury or what you experienced. There are different options open to you if you are looking for counselling. You must go to your doctor for advice, and he or she can refer you to a counsellor working with the NHS. This could be all you need to start regaining your mental equilibrium. You may also consider going private if that suits your case better. Note that your doctor must have prescribed counselling if you are going to claim any costs. This is where Accident Advice Helpline could potentially help. If your personal trainer accident was not your fault, we can help you make a financial claim for compensation. A successful claim can be used to pay towards your private counselling costs.
About Accident Advice Helpline
We should explain that we don’t offer private mental health counselling directly. We do not employ counsellors and do not have expertise in guiding through what sort of counselling can best help you. Instead, we are experts in making personal accident compensation claims. Our no-win, no-fee* solicitors are dedicated and focused on giving you the best legal opportunity to make a successful accident claim.
How counselling can help you
Sometimes, mental health injuries are underestimated. People may naturally assume that they are less serious than they are, mainly because they are not immediately visible. You may be experiencing insomnia, depression, anxiety or panic attacks after your personal trainer accident – all of which can have a negative effect on your ability to carry on with your normal life.
When you go and see a counsellor, it will become apparent if you need to attend a few sessions or if you could benefit from long-term counselling. Your counsellor can assess your mental health and determine the best course of action.
The possible benefits of going private
The main benefit of NHS counselling (other than the standard of care being typically good to excellent) is that is free. That being said, you may still be best served by going private. Private counselling has the benefit of usually being available faster than going through the NHS. You tend to avoid the issue of waiting lists in the private sector – thus giving you expert mental health care when you need it, rather than when a counsellor becomes available.
