Therapy & Counseling
Anger is a valuable and creative state that can become a problem when it is stifled or expressed in a way that hurts oneself or others. Anger can inform, motivate and protect and, when expressed healthily, is an important method of dealing with stress. However, anger that is out of proportion, extreme or explosive is likely to be a real problem for both you and others. Displaying anger in destructive ways is a learned behavior that is usually acquired early in life, but most people who act violently don't like behaving that way. They often have to deal with their own rage, shame or guilt over the negative consequences of their actions, like damaged relationships or loss of credibility.
The overall aim of anger management treatment is to help the client replace hostile, dysfunctional anger with moderate, functional anger. Behavioral therapy and conscious intervention are effective in raising your frustration-tolerance. Assistance with changing your thought patterns that are causing your painful or negative feelings is available. You will find that learning skills that develop and support assertive, non-aggressive behavior can become a source of great pride and personal power.
Symptoms of anger can include:
We all know what anger is, and we've all felt it: whether as a fleeting annoyance or as full-fledged rage. Anger is a completely normal, usually healthy, human emotion, but when it gets out of control and turns destructive, it can lead to problems—problems at work, in your personal relationships, and in the overall quality of your life. It can make you feel as though you're at the mercy of an unpredictable and powerful emotion
