The impact of a motor vehicle accident (MVA) is often not limited to solely physical injuries. Although not all MVA’s lead to PTSD or post-traumatic symptoms, it is common. Seeking Counselling after an incident or MVA can significantly decrease the long term impacts, such as emotional distress, anxiety, panic, fear, depression, avoidance, irritation, hypervigilance (also known as fight-or-flight state), as well as other post-traumatic responses.
Counselling can support the nervous system returning to equilibrium after being stuck in a stance of survival, stress, and fear. Mind-body techniques such as EMDR and somatic therapy aid with resolving trauma by integrating the memories of the incident and calming the body's stress responses.
