Anger Therapy

Understanding Anger

Anger can be a valid and useful emotion. The difficulty comes when our level of anger means we are unable to communicate effectively, when we end up saying or doing things we regret, and when our response is disproportionate to the situation.
Often if you’ve got to a point of an anger outburst, it’s because your emotions felt overwhelming, and you were unable to think or act rationally.

When do you need to seek help?

So many clients I have worked with to tackle anger describe it feeling like it goes from 0-100 in a split second. They don’t know how to stop this happening, and even if they did, they haven’t learnt the skills to communicate and disagree without the use of shouting, threatening or physical actions.

Often afterwards they will regret how things played out, regret what they said or did, but just don’t know how to change it. This is when seeking help from a professional is the logical step.

What Causes Anger problems?

There are common themes experienced within anger – feeling unheard, feeling disrespected, feeling like someone is treating you like an idiot, something feeling unfair or unjust, or believing that what someone has done is wrong.

Our ideas of right and wrong are a huge contributor to feelings of anger. Those who feel anger more intensely are likely to have more black and white ideas of right and wrong. They are also more likely to have a sense that what they think and believe is the ‘right way’ and therefore anything that is not this is automatically ‘wrong’.

How Can Therapy Help?

Therapy will help you to learn to recognise the triggers for your anger. It will also look at helping you to think and act more rationally in the moment, which in turn will reduce the unwanted negative consequences.
Getting angry rarely makes us feel better, it makes us feel tense and uncomfortable. Holding on to anger means that we keep this feeling for a long time and can lead to feeling depressed. Therapy will also look at helping you to let go of anger about situations in the past when it is appropriate.

Treatment for Anger Management

A requirement for engaging in therapy for anger is being open and willing to change your perspective and learn new ways of responding to triggers. Treatment sessions will focus on these objectives. At Hannah Paskin Therapy I provide Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) which is effective in treating Anger. I have past experience working with those who have received criminal action against them as a result of their anger, and those who have developed toxic relationships with their partner due to their uncontrolled anger.
I can help you to find a new way forwards.
