Unhelpful Coping Skills?

As an adult you may find yourself in repeating patterns of chaotic and or unhappy relationships.  You may even have unhelpful coping skills such as substance misuse, self-harm, addictions, avoidance and feelings of shame. You think that your problems are your own fault and will never go away and this feeling sometimes completely overwhelms you.

We will work with you towards your future

We will work with you to put the past in perspective and gain hope for the future. Your therapy is likely to be part of a formulation based approach to current life difficulties and focus on learning coping skills for present-day living.
