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 M6C 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 M6C or for a M6C coping skills counsellor, these professionals provide coping strategies. They include M6C 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 M6C are able to work with a wide range of issues.

For example, if you're seeking a marriage counsellor in M6C you'll find that most therapists are trained in marriage counselling or couples counselling in M6C and couples therapy. And they welcome families for family counselling in M6C or family therapy in M6C.
