Do you resort to drugs and alcohol and it's becoming a problem? Does it feel like parts of you are in conflict and out of your control? If you could figure it out logically you would have already. These patterns may feel mysterious to you but what if these parts of you have good intentions and are just stuck trying to help you. In therapy we can break these painful patterns by healing the underlying issues and giving you freedom and peace inside. "

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