Is a problem with anger ruining your life?
Have you ever been so angry that you want to lash out, throw things or shout at somebody? Perhaps the stress of work or day to day life builds to the point that you feel like screaming?
Maybe you feel guilty or ashamed at feeling as though you want to kick the dog or you upset your children because they can be “irritating”? If you feel this way anger management counselling may be able to help you.
I’m sure I speak for many people who’ve experienced their “blood boiling” as anger surges, the horrible feeling of being told you have “anger issues”. The thing is, anger is natural, it’s part of our natural defences, part of our instinct, so getting angry from time to time is unavoidable.
Anger is part of a system that alerts us to danger and help's us respond to threats, indeed, anger can be the stimulus to changing many aspect of our lives that we are unhappy with. The problem arises when we can’t control our anger.
When we get angry, we trigger responses in our body that essentially make us ready for a fight; our heartbeat gets faster and adrenaline pumps around our body quicker.
One of the toughest lessons I had to learn and probably the most important thing about anger management is that you can’t control situations that might make you angry. Things will happen that will make you angry.
But you can learn to be in control of your own thoughts, feelings and emotions and how you respond to those situations. You can learn not to shout at your children. You can learn not to be provoked by your partner. You can learn not to get frustrated at work.
With anger management counselling you can learn to handle all kinds of anger issues ranging from frustration that’s quite mild to violent outbursts of rage.
avoid the destructive nature of angry outbursts.
learn to communicate more effectively and less aggressively.
Feel good about your improvement and maintain the changes in your life for the long term.
