I work with children, adolescents, and young adults who are coping with difficult behaviours, anxiety or mood concerns. Parents can often feel overwhelmed in helping their children, so I support families to help them manage life stressors and difficult emotions. My goal is to help children, youth, and parents have easier and more pleasant days. I use evidence-based strategies of Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT). Within my work helping youth, young adults, and parents, I have a specialty of helping people coping with medical conditions or anxiety about medical procedures.

Coping Skills Counsellors
With coping skills or coping mechanisms, we learn to overcome issues like stress, depression, anger or anxiety.

Pro-active coping involves dealing with a problem by using constructive coping activities such as planning, confrontation, self-control and restraint. Overuse of coping mechanisms, like avoiding problems or working obsessively, can exasperate the weakness.

Emotion based coping skills reduce symptoms by addressing our feelings e.g. discussing the issues, distraction, relaxation, reframing or humor can all help. But negative coping mechanisms, which tend to be impulsive, like denial, projection, rationalization, repression or wishful thinking can make the underlying problem worse.

Some coping methods are more like bad habits than constructive life skills e.g. drinking and drugs. Other examples might include skin biting, nail biting or hair pulling (trichotillomania).

If you find it hard to cope or are having trouble coping, counsellors in B4A can help develop constructive coping skills for children, coping skills for kids and life coping skills.

If you're looking for help with coping skills in B4A or for a B4A coping skills counsellor, these professionals provide coping strategies. They include B4A coping skills counsellors, coping skills psychologists, coping skills psychotherapists and coping skills therapists.

How can I tell if a therapist is right for me?
Therapists in B4A are able to work with a wide range of issues.

For example, if you're seeking a marriage counsellor in B4A you'll find that most therapists are trained in marriage counselling or couples counselling in B4A and couples therapy. And they welcome families for family counselling in B4A or family therapy in B4A.
