The benefit of resilience psychology coaches
Resilience psychology coaches are here to offer support and training. Everybody will sooner or later face setbacks in his or her life. Resilience is the art of handling these setbacks efficiently in a flexible way.
That is not to say that you should not have or should not feel emotions. The point is that the emotions do not stay or control you and that you recognize and control your emotions.
Sometimes it can feel as if everything is always wrong and that you have many setbacks. In the past you were bullied, now your colleagues are nasty to you, and your manager doesn’t even care about you. Your partner has deceived you, and you were almost hit by a car on your way home.
In short, life is not pleasant for you. Some people become depressed or end up in a burnout. Others can no longer deal with the situation with common sense. In that case, a resilience coach offers a solution.
How do you notice reduced resilience?
- It feels like only one more small thing has to happen before you get strong emotions like anger or sadness
- Everyone always seems to be against you
- You are often emotionally in the form of anger or sadness and want to feel happy again
- You quickly lose your patience and concentration is not your strongest point anymore
- You quickly feel guilty when something happens even though you know deep down that you are not guilty about anything
- You like to be sarcastic even if you receive feedback that this is not desirable
- You prefer to avoid quarrels and conflicts
- A combination and variation of the above
Resilience is a broad concept and has many more symptoms than the above. You can do various resilience tests online, but you can also contact specialized resilience psychology coaches directly at CallTheONE.
Reduced resilience is not a disease but a disturbing way of giving meaning.
We give meaning to everything we hear and see. Sometimes conscious and sometimes seemingly unconscious. A less resilient person will give more easily a negative meaning to a situation or a person than someone who feels comfortable.
A resilience psychology coach usually examines in the first instance what style you use to give meaning and what meanings you assign to situations, people, the world, time, and yourself. By providing you alternative insights, you will be better able to deal with situations and setbacks without negative feelings.
What causes reduced resilience?
There can be various causes that make you less resilient. Inadequate nutrition, no exercises like gym or fitness training, and not enough sleep can lower your resilience but are rarely the cause.
Traumas are often a cause, but usually in combination with other factors. Addiction can also cause less resilience. The resilience psychology coaches at TheONE examine the cause with you, but only to determine what the best treatment plan is.
Resilience training for adults
There are various resilience training courses varying from 1 day to sometimes two weeks. By first contacting a TheONE resilience coach, you know very quickly whether you will benefit from resilience training.
During the training, you will learn to overcome setbacks and enjoy life again to the fullest. Some resilience psychology trainers offer their resilience training online via TheONE via video calling. Others give group lessons. Ask for the possibilities.
Resilience and children:
Children can also have mentally reduced resilience. Pay attention within CallTheONE whether the resilience psychology coach also has experience with children. As a parent, consider that resilience has nothing to do with standing up for yourself by violence. This is often a form of reduced resilience.
Resilience and hypersensitivity
Someone who is less resilient can sometimes confuse themselves with being hypersensitive. Hypersensitivity is often a consequence of being less resilient. The person will quickly become emotional or angry and declare that they are like that. However, mentally healthy people can withstand a little bit of adversity and will never react so fiercely.
Anyone who has children of their own, or who interacts a lot with small children, knows that children can cry for seemingly nothing just like that. Something happens and tears roll down their cheeks as if the world is coming to an end. Young children are very sensitive and mentally not yet stable enough to deal with small setbacks. But they are very resilient. The crying that turned out to be unstoppable can turn into a laugh within seconds.
People who call themselves hypersensitive, but cannot recover very quickly from their grief or anger are probably not resilient.
