Anger Management Counselling
Anger is often a cover-up for other feelings. Therapy can be a great way to explore the reasons behind your anger. It can be very hard to control if you do not understand what is initiating that initial feeling of anger. The following are some reasons why therapy can be helpful for anger management:
– To be aware of your anger signs and triggers
– To identify the negative thought patterns that trigger your anger
– To avoid people, places, and situations that bring out your anger
– To learn ways to cool down, or to cope with the onset of anger
– To learn healthier ways to express your anger
Your first session involves initial assessment of your well being and a thorough intake of your personal history and background. Subsequent therapy sessions are 50 minutes in length, and are unique to each individual treatment plan.
What is Anger?
Anger is a normal emotion that all human beings feel and express to varying degrees. When anger becomes chronic and explosive, it can have serious consequences for your health, your state of mind, your relationships, and others around you. Anger Management is learning to deal with these unhealthy behaviours. You are able to control your anger more than you might think. You can learn to express your emotions without hurting others, which will actually help you achieve your needs more efficiently. Anger management, or controlling your anger, involves eliminating unhelpful thinking styles, understanding your conflict style, learning helpful communication styles, and learning appropriate assertive techniques.
