Psychological help after a car accident in Reading
There are plenty of things that you can do to help yourself with the psychological trauma after a car accident in Reading. You can seek professional advice from your family doctor and he or she may refer you to a specialist. However, there are some other tips which may aid your recovery and help you feel more positive.
- Even though you may feel like withdrawing from other people this is really not the best thing to do. Try and carry on connecting to others – if you can possibly manage to maintain your relationships then you will not have to spend so much time alone.
- Do not be afraid to ask for support. Many people in your situation have found it helpful to speak to a family member, friend, counsellor, or clergyman.
- Try to carry on participating in social activities, even when it is the last thing you feel like doing. It is important to simply do some “normal” things and to do them with other people.
- Find out if there is a local or on-line support group for people in a similar situation to yourself. It may help to be with others who are facing the same problems as yourself and it can make you feel less alone.
- Volunteer – many people who have suffered trauma find that volunteering can be a great way to challenge the sense of helplessness. It can remind yourself of your strengths and reclaim your sense of power.
