"Asking for help can be difficult. We often think "I should be able to handle my problems myself". However, everyone needs support at some point in their lives. A major crisis, a life transition, loss, job stress, relationship problems, emotional needs, our past interfering with our present, or everyday stressors become too much to deal with alone. We forget our strengths and become isolated, depressed, angry, or make poor choices."

"Two guiding principles for therapy are compassion and accountability. Compassion of others helps us hang in there when life is hard. Accountability compels us to use what we learn, as it turns us away from self-pity and blame. Sometimes we learn life's lessons the hard way-it just seems to be part of being human.

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 64114 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 64114 or for a 64114 coping skills therapist, these professionals provide coping strategies. They include 64114 coping skills therapists, coping skills psychologists, coping skills psychotherapists and coping skills counseling.
