How Psychosocial Recovery Coaching can support you to build resilience

But you don’t have to go it alone – a Psychosocial Recovery Coach can give you the tools and support you need to build resilience and navigate more of life’s challenges with confidence and ease.


What is resilience, and why is it important?


Resilience is the ability to bounce back from adversity, adapt to change, and thrive in the face of challenge. It’s not about being invincible like superman, but rather developing the skills and resources to cope with life’s ups and downs. If you’re living with psychosocial disability, building resilience is key to maintaining mental health, building strong relationships, and achieving personal goals.


How can a Psychosocial Recovery Coach support you to build resilience?


Engaging a Psychosocial Recovery Coach can be an empowering and effective way to build resilience. Recovery Coaches can provide personalised support and guidance to assist you develop the skills and strategies you need to cope with life’s challenges.


Here are some ways a Psychosocial Recovery Coach can support you to build resilience:


Discovering your strengths and resources: A Psychosocial Recovery Coach can assist you to identify your strengths and resources, such as supportive relationships, skills, and coping strategies. By focusing on what you do well and what you have, you’ll feel more empowered to face challenges.


Developing coping skills: A Psychosocial Recovery Coach can support you to explore and develop effective coping skills for managing stress and anxiety. There are so many wellbeing resources listing these, but your Recovery Coach can suggest some and work through ones that make sense for you! These could include mindfulness, relaxation, problem-solving skills, and goal-setting techniques to help you overcome adversity. Gratitude journalling was all the rage a couple years ago, but there’s probably still something to it – right?!


Building a support network: A Psychosocial Recovery Coach can work with you to build your support network of family, friends, and peers who can provide emotional support and practical assistance when needed. Having a strong support network can contribute to you feel more connected and less isolated, which can build resilience. A problem shared is a problem halved!


Fostering self-care: A Psychosocial Recovery Coach can encourage you to prioritise self-care activities that promote mental and physical health, such as exercise, good nutrition, and adequate sleep. By taking care of your well-being, you’ll be better equipped to deal with stress and adversity. We’re definitely not saying sunshine and jogging cures anything, but these self-care activities do work a bit, and when you can stack them on top of each other you can really get the feel better ball rolling.


Achieving goals: A Psychosocial Recovery Coach can work with you to set realistic and achievable goals and provide support and accountability in working towards those goals. Achieving goals can boost your confidence and sense of accomplishment, which can contribute to resilience. Remember you are much more likely to achieve a goal if you write it down – 42% more likely in fact. And having an accountability partner (like a Recovery Coach) makes you 95% more likely to succeed. You can see how we like stacking improvements to move things in our favour!
