Do you often find yourself stuck in your head? Too caught up in thinking about the past or the "what ifs" of the future? You feel like you've been trying to hold it together, but it's all becoming too much. You feel like you are doing things wrong, you feel anxious, lonely, or just stuck in a rut. You scroll past other people's lives on social media and it seems like they are coping with everything better than you. Maybe that glass or two of wine or the marijuana that helped you unwind or relax are no longer feeling like solutions, but something you might need to change. It's time to look at what is getting in the way!

Are you experiencing a transition in your life--in a relationship, career, education, or life stage such as early adulthood or midlife? Are you overwhelmed and uncertain, feeling depressed, anxious, grief-stricken, resentful, conflicted, or confused? Change of all types stirs up unsettling feelings, including unresolved issues, memories and traumas. You might feel like you're always in "crisis-mode." When your feelings overwhelm you, they cloud your judgment and vision. Rather than being at their mercy, you can learn to allow your feelings to guide you, no matter how difficult the challenges you face.

Life presents to us a consistent ebb and flow of challenges. As we navigate these, we are guided by our sense of identity, our past experiences, and the patterns we have learned. Often, however, these solutions do not serve us in the present and take the form of habits of mind and action which hold us back, shape our relationships, and create the illusion of false limitations; but there is hope. We are able to shape our lives through changing our patterns, the way we think and communicate, and the actions we learn to take. Through self understanding we may update our narrative and with it transform our realities.

Coping Skills Therapists
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, therapists in 02144 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 02144 or for 02144 coping skills therapist, these professionals provide coping strategies. They include 02144 coping skills therapists, coping skills psychologists, coping skills psychotherapists and coping skills counseling.

How can I tell if a therapist is right for me?
