Finding good squash accident counselling can make all the difference if you need help to recover emotionally from your sporting injury. However, it is hard to source specialist counselling on the NHS quickly; the waiting lists are often very long. Fortunately there is a solution. If you can make a successful compensation claim, you may be able to get funding for private counselling as part of the compensation package. Accident Advice Helpline can assist with cases like this.
At Accident Advice Helpline, we specialise in helping accident victims get the financial help they need in order to make as complete a recovery as possible. You can call us at any time or use our compensation claim form, and we will get in touch quickly to discuss your situation. We are usually able to tell straight away whether or not a legal case can be made. This advice is free and we will not put any pressure on you, but if you decide you want us to help make a claim, we will be there.
Why get counselling?
Prior to suffering accidents, many people find it hard to envisage themselves needing counselling. You might still feel that you can manage by yourself most of the time, and hope to sort out your own problems, but if you have a problem, it is well worth getting professional help to nip it in the bud.
Common problems faced by accident victims include the following:
- Night sweats, nightmares or difficulty getting to sleep.
- Panic attacks, sudden feelings of dizziness and disorientation.
- Mood swings, anxiety or uncharacteristic aggression.
- An inability to face going back to the place where the accident happened.
Different individuals need different kinds of support to overcome problems like these, but it really helps to work with a professional who understands the context behind them. Specialised squash accident counselling is likely to give you the best possible chance of recovery. Talk to your doctor or to a psychiatric professional; if they think counselling would benefit you, they can write a recommendation on your behalf, and this can be used to make the case for funding.
Making a case
At Accident Advice Helpline we can find you a sports accident solicitor familiar with the psychological impact that accidents like yours can cause. You will not have to worry about travelling to see your solicitor. We aim to make things as simple as possible for you, so we will arrange for you to communicate by phone or email. Your solicitor will take care of the paperwork involved in your case and all the dealings with the other side. You will be contacted when major decisions need to be made, but beyond that, if you would rather not think about things, you will not have to.
With good quality counselling you should not only start to feel better, but you will also be less likely to develop long-term problems and you will be able to approach life on your own terms once again. Call us on 0800 689 0500 or 0333 500 0993 from a mobile phone, both lines are free.
