"Albert Einstein said “Life is like riding a bicycle. To keep your balance, you must keep moving”. Life can be a rough ride. Keeping the balance and moving forward can be a challenge. It can involve stress, anxiety, depression and much more. But I believe through psychological therapies we can learn and, in some cases even master, the art of managing life successfully. To achieve this, I practise an integrative approach that draws strength from various therapies in the field. I am qualified and confident in using an integrative approach. My natural inclination is to really listen and offer empathy and understanding to people in need."

Talking to a trusted and valued friend may help but often we are left struggling to cope with difficult emotions and thoughts which may lead us to feel stressed, anxious or depressed. We may notice that we are repeating the same unhelpful patterns of behaviour without understanding why or knowing how to change them. We may feel that we have lost our sense of control and purpose about our life, our relationships and our work, leading to a decreased sense of well-being, and an increase in negative emotions such as confusion, sadness and despondency."

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 exacerbate 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, rationalisation, 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 Exeter 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 Exeter or for an Exeter coping skills counsellor, these professionals provide coping strategies. They include Exeter coping skills counsellors, coping skills psychologists, coping skills psychotherapists and coping skills counselling.

How can I tell if a counsellor is right for me?
Counsellors and therapists in Exeter are able to work with a wide range of issues.

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