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

How can I tell if a therapist is right for me?
Therapists in Woodridge are able to work with a wide range of issues.
