If you have had an accident in your work as a train engineer, it is possible that some of the consequences may be psychological as well as physical. In these cases, it is important to consider using accident counselling services, and to consult your doctor to find out if they feel you could benefit from train engineer accident counselling.
If your GP feels that train engineer accident counselling is essential for your recovery, then the cost of such services could be covered by a successful compensation claim for accident compensation through Accident Advice Helpline. With no obligation and a 100% no win, no fee* policy, you can start your claim today by calling our free, 24-hour helpline.
Mental health at work
As a train engineer working with heavy machinery on a daily basis, it is possible that any accident, large or small, could have an effect on your mental health and your ability to continue with confidence in your work. It is important to remember that accidents do not only result in physical injury, but can have a lasting effect in other ways. A medical professional may recommend or refer you to a counselling service to help you regain your confidence and confront your anxieties relating to your accident experience.
Seeking medical advice
If you are a train engineer and think you may be suffering from psychological effects of an accident at work, then it could be a good idea to seek medical advice about receiving counselling. Speak to your GP, who can then make an assessment on whether your recovery will be assisted by accident counselling.
Counselling services are available on the NHS, and your GP is likely to refer you to an NHS provider. However, the demand for these services far outstrips supply, and you may be forced to wait a long time for an appointment. In these cases you might prefer to seek a private counselling provider, for which you will be charged up front. It is important to keep all proof of fees paid for your train engineer accident counselling, along with a record of your GP’s recommendation. These will be vital pieces of evidence in any claim for compensation with Accident Advice Helpline.

Remember to keep all receipts for counselling charges, and any correspondence with a medical professional that indicates you should seek counselling.
