Anger is an emotion we all feel at some time. It comes as a result of feeling and thinking we have been treated unfairly, been disrespected, or when others have broken our rules or fallen short of our expectations or standards. Anger has consequences which often involves hurting others feelings or sometimes physically hurting them. After an anger outburst we can think very critically of ourselves and may feel ashamed, guilty or depressed and withdrawn.
How counselling helps
Counselling helps to explain the physical sensations you may experience when you are angry, such as breathing quickly, shaking and sweating and why they occur. We can look to identify your anger triggers and find strategies to help with the physical sensations and the thoughts and behaviours which feed into the anger to discover the calmer you. Stress management may also be useful.
