Treating anxiety

Some helpful advice for treating anxiety

If you are suffering from anxiety following an accident or stress at work, the most important thing to do is seek some advice from a medical professional. You might want to see your own GP or have some counselling from a psychotherapist privately. Treating anxiety in the early stages can prevent chronic depression setting in.

We understand it can be difficult to ask for help when your mental health is not what it should be. Seeking help, in itself, can make you feel anxious. It is, however, the first step to recovery and we encourage you to take that step.

Treating anxiety with professional help

GPs these days are very aware of mental health issues and how they can be helped. Anxiety and depression are widespread among the population. The talking therapies are considered to be one of the most effective ways of treating anxiety. Your GP may have a list of psychotherapists and counsellors who can help you.

There are support groups you can join and there is some one-to-one counselling available on the NHS, although you may have to go on a waiting list.

Cognitive Behavioural Therapy is popular and effective, as is ‘Mindfulness’. These therapies require the expertise of professionals but, once learned, can be practised on your own.

Other therapies that can help in treating anxiety include:

  • Meditation
  • Yoga
  • Joining a choir
  • Exercise
  • Self-help books and internet resources
  • Relaxation

Your GP might suggest medication to help you stay calm and this can be helpful alongside other therapies.

Claiming compensation with Accident Advice Helpline

If you’re suffering from anxiety because of someone else’s negligence then you may be able to claim compensation for this psychological injury.

If, for example, you’re suffering from anxiety due to awful working conditions or lack of safety at work and your employer is to blame, then you could have a strong case.

If you’ve been injured physically in a non-fault accident then your anxiety might be a consequence. Again, Accident Advice Helpline can help you get the compensation you deserve for all your injuries.
