Anger is an emotion that is experienced in differing degrees by everyone. It can range from mild annoyance and frustration to intense rage, which can lead to explosive outbursts.
Anger can often mask other hidden feelings such as hurt, anxiety, and sadness. Anger can lead to a range of overt behaviours such as yelling, criticising, throwing objects, or hitting something.
Anger can also be accompanied by less overt behaviours such as ignoring someone or becoming withdrawn.
Frequently, a part of the anger cycle involves shame and embarrassment. This means that people often don’t seek help for some time.
There are a number of factors that contribute to our levels of anger and how we express this emotion. These factors typically include genetic components and what we learned about showing and expressing anger while growing up.
Life stressors can increase our likelihood of becoming angry and drugs can reduce our ability to control our aggression.
At Life Resolutions our qualified psychologists are experienced in anger management treatment. Anger management counselling focuses on where anger comes from, allowing you to understand the causes of your anger and, therefore, how to manage it.
Counselling sessions are not aimed at suppressing or bottling up your anger; rather, they aim to teach you methods to express feelings of anger in a healthy way.
Anger management focuses on learning the triggers and early warning signs of anger, and effective techniques to calm down and manage a potential problematic situation before it gets out of control.
