"I have 3 basic beliefs about therapy: 1) You are the expert when it comes to your life and your family; my job is to offer support and strategies during tough times. 2) Children deserve to be treated with patience and respect; at the same time, parents should be allowed to make mistakes, take breaks, and ask for help. 3) I am committed to understanding everyone who walks through my door as a unique individual rather than a problem or diagnosis."

We may feel like we are drowning from the daily stresses of work, school, and family commitments, and the feelings of sheer exhaustion are too much. We have stopped showing up for ourselves, we have given our power away, and we feel as though we are left with little to nothing. These feelings may elicit a host of other mental, physical, and emotional ailments that begin to show up in our lives and we feel like everything is out of control. "

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.
