Coping Skills

What can coping skills help me with?

People seek counselling or therapy for a wide range of concerns. Dr. Michael Dadson (Mike Dadson) knows that when you struggle with anxiety, depression, loneliness, a lack of fulfillment, unmet needs in your relationship, or if you are coping with loss or grief or job related stress, you require some form of coping skills. 

Without effective coping skills for incidents of stress, people can be vulnerable to addiction or further mental and physical health concerns.
