Do you have issues with anger? Is your anger so difficult that it has become an issue with your personal relationships, friends, or work? Is it affecting other areas of your life? Do you lash out at other people? Do people have to walk on eggshells around you because they are afraid of you becoming angry at them? Is your anger so bad that you have had a physical fight with someone? Is road rage an issue for you?
What is anger?
Anger develops when something happens that is not ok with you. You might find that your body gets ready for a fight. Your body may release adrenaline with increased muscle tension, increased heart rate, and other physical symptoms.
Anger physically will reside in the back of the jaw, travel down your neck. and into your shoulders. Perhaps your shoulders are always tense. Perhaps you need to use exercises to decrease the tension in your neck.
Is it ok to be angry?
Anger is a part of life. It lets you know when your personal boundaries have been broken. Those boundaries may be something that you are aware of or you may not have been aware of till it was broken. They may be spoken or unspoken.
It is how you deal with the anger that matters. If you express it in a rage to others…that may not be ok…it may not be good anger management.
Think about the times when you have wanted to say something in anger to your boss…maybe it was not appropriate.
What about stuffed anger?
What about anger that is directed at me?
Anger that is directed at you by another person, is something that you need to learn to manage. Just because someone is angry at you does not allow you to be angry back at them.
You might try answering an angry person with a soft-spoken response. If it is about something that you did that was a mistake…try answering with a version of, “I did that and I am working on changing it”
How can anger management counselling help me?
Anger management counselling can help you identify your broken boundaries. It can help you identify the triggers that start the process of becoming angry. It can help you learn ways to deal with your anger in a healthy way and help you find your own personal peace.
Are you tired of your anger? Are you ready to do something about it?
Short-term therapy can help relieve many symptoms and you back on your feet. For people who choose to engage in long-term therapy, the results are deeper and often very profound. You can choose the best path for your life, short or long-term therapy, or a combination of both options.
