Using Counselling Services to Build Coping Skills

There are many levels of coping skills. Some are physical:

  • Exercise regularly
  • Taking deep breaths
  • Stretch, or meditate, eating healthy
  • Well-balanced meals
  • Adequate daily sleep
  • Avoid excessive alcohol
  • Avoid use of tobacco, and substance use and continue with routine preventive measures (such as vaccinations, cancer screenings, etc.).

However, there are deeper levels of coping that are emotion based:

  • Understanding, changing and releasing pent-up emotions
  • Meditating, and mindfulness practices for peace of mind

Satir Transformational Therapy suggests our coping strategies can magnify or minimize our challenges. Often our coping creates more of an issue than the challenge we are addressing.

Learn how to identify your form of coping, why you’ve adopted it and how to develop balance and harmony in this area of your life.
