"I believe a central component of the therapeutic process is the relationship that's established between the therapist and the client. A safe and trusting relationship provides an environment in which you are able to explore those unresolved issues and old patterns that are not letting you have the quality of life you would like to have. Therapy is an opportunity to identify what's not working for you, view it from different angles, and learn strategies that will result in alternate ways of relating to yourself and to others that may be more conducive to becoming the person you want to be."

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