Intellectual Property Claim: this is a individual work of Leigh Fraser-Gray. Permission must be granted for replication, use or reference to this Traffic Lights Model of Coping Capacity (TLMoCC) designed and created by Leigh Fraser-Gray.

Over time, I have developed pracititioner wisdom and my own intellectual property in the Traffic Lights Model of Coping Capacity (c 2018) which allows a review of your individual internal and external eco systems affecting mental health and general well being.

Using my traffic lights of coping capacity model vernacular  - see model below - repositioning our perspective/s, changing some habits, and renewing individual understanding potentially propels us from feeling overwhelmed and

powerless &/or just surviving  to  considering how to learn how to really thrive.
