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.

From time to time, we all face challenges that can be overwhelming. Sometimes these challenges are situational, but they can also be the result of our lived experience(s) over time. Often they manifest as anxiety, depression, suicidal ideation, and self harm. These manifestations can lead to further challenges such as job loss, family conflict, isolation, and addiction. Although we may flounder or experience failure, we can develop the strategies needed to live a flourishing life. Integrative therapeutic approaches including Cognitive Behavior Therapy, Positive Psychotherapy, and Solution Focused Therapy teach us how to live well.

You may be someone who has experience with some of the tougher stuff in life- sadness, worry, repetitive thoughts, and experiences that are hard to talk about like numbness, isolation, violence and trauma. You are someone who is curious to dig deeper to learn more about these life events and how they are impacting your life now. You are ready now to move through and beyond the difficulty into something that feels more like the real you.

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

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