At Mind Glowing Therapies we are experienced in working with people with anger issues, assisting them in turning their lives around using Anger Counselling. Like all emotions, anger is there for a purpose. It lets us know that we are suffering from some form of distress. This is important because although anger can be uncomfortable, it can also motivate us to address our underlying needs, desires, or perceived threats. It’s unprocessed anger that can lead to conflict, social isolation, problems at work, substance abuse, depression, shame, and even incarceration. Unprocessed anger is what we can help you with.
What is Anger?
Not everyone processes anger by being aggressive. Some people express anger by directing it inwards, towards themselves. Others deny their anger, or become silent and withdrawn. So none of these are healthy reactions. They all lead to stress, tension and anxiety. But because many of us are relatively easily angered. This can be influenced by a number of things including our biology or how we have been treated in the past (our experiences). Even what we observed from family members, partners, friends, or the media and we may not have learned other ways to cope.
Anger usually begins with an event that challenges your internal harmony and well-being. It may or may not be related to another person’s behavior, it could also be due to circumstances. It may involve a single negative event or a series of events that combine to affect your mood. Or a trigger can even be imaginary, based on something you anticipate happening in the future.
How We Work with Anger
To manage anger in a healthier way, and to prevent it from turning destructive, involves self-reflection and an examinations of our beliefs. . With Anger Counselling we can help you to examine your own experiences without reacting to them or becoming overwhelmed. We will explore that fact that your thoughts, feelings, and physical reactions are only temporary rather than a fixed part of who you are. This gives you increased freedom to choose how to react to them.
