I'm not headed in the right direction or in any direction and my mind feels muddled. I'm constantly exhausted." You may have even tried therapy before but felt like it didn't make a difference so are skeptical about trying again.

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