Anger is not always a bad thing in itself. It all depends on how we manage it.
It is a perfectly natural reaction to any situation with which we feel uncomfortable or unable to control. It can arise from a sense of injustice or feeling of ‘being wronged’. The anger often stems from frustration. Everyone has their own ways of coping with anger, but when it is allowed to build up through a series of events it can then be both mentally and physically damaging for both ourselves and others around us. Counselling can help you, not only to remain in control of that anger, but to channel it in positive ways to resolve the very issues that create it.
Dealing with anger
Everyone has a physical reaction to anger. Be aware of what your body is telling you.
Recognise your anger signs, your heart beats faster and you breathe more quickly, preparing you for action. You might also notice other signs, such as tension in your shoulders or clenching your fists. If you notice these signs it is important to take yourself out of the situation if you’ve got a history of losing control. If your anger is escalating into physical and verbal violence it is important to seek appropriate and professional help.
Treatments that will give you back control are: Counselling (Cognitive Behaviour Therapy) CBT, Psychotherapy, and Hypnotherapy.
