Much has been written in the press about gymnast Beth Tweddle who has reportedly been consulting a psychologist following her terrible accident which occurred whilst appearing in 'The Jump' in February of this year. Experience tells us that it is not at all unusual for a person who has suffered a traumatic event or injury to suffer some form of psychological upset. This can very from minor travel anxiety to more severe conditions such as PTSD and can affect anyone, not just those with some form of pre-existing psychological condition. It should be remembered that an 'invisible injury' such a as psychological condition can be just (if not more) debilitating than a physical injury. Medical opinion should always be sought and injured parties should not fear stigma or judgement. We wish Beth all the best for the future.
