In this paper, we present an agent that is able to reason about the user’s emotions and to perform or suggest coping strategies to deal with them in order to improve the user’s well-being. Concretely, this agent uses the PLEAID reasoning engine that we extended to implement Dastani and Lorini’s BDI logic for graded emotions and coping strategies. We explain the difficulties behind such an implementation, that proves the computational tractability of the underlying logic. We then illustrate the possibilities offered by this agent on a short scenario involving an artificial companion interacting with a human user.
