The nature of life's experiences and living can be exceptionally fulfilling and at the same time provoke incredible challenges that have the ability to evoke internal chaos. We may not be able to control what happens to us, but we do have control over how we address, engage with, and continue to move forward given these challenges.

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 North Vancouver 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 North Vancouver or for a North Vancouver coping skills counsellor, these professionals provide coping strategies. They include North Vancouver coping skills counsellors, coping skills psychologists, coping skills psychotherapists and coping skills therapists.
