Motor Vehicle Accident (MVA) Counselling A motor vehicle accident can be one of the most devastating events in your life. Recovery can involve physical as well as psychological challenges. Many people are not aware that there is funding available through your automobile insurance company to provide psychological counselling. You do not need a referral from your doctor for psychological counselling. Workplace Accident Counselling – Workplace Safety and Insurance Board (WSIB) An accident in the workplace can lead to physical and psychological challenges. If you feel anxious or down, have experienced changes in eating and sleep, are worried about finances and are withdrawing from activities that you previously enjoyed, psychological counselling may be the next step for you. The cost of psychological counselling for workplace accidents is covered by WSIB. Common issues from motor vehicle and workplace accidents may include: - post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) - sleeping difficulties including nightmares - flashbacks and intrusive memories - anxiety related to the location of the accident - withdrawing from friends, family and activities previously enjoyed - using alcohol or pain medication to cope with anger and feelings of helplessness.
