Have you been struggling with anger outbursts? Is your anger interfering with your relationships? Have you had any recent legal issues?
Anger management therapy may be the right solution for you. Treatment will aim at learning new coping strategies and finding new ways to manage difficult situations.
What happens when you get angry
Anger gives us the power to defend ourselves when we need to fight for our survival. However, when out of control, anger is much more likely to hurt ourselves and others.
Anger may be a natural response to a difficult situation, but how you choose to respond to your anger is up to you. You may already have tried venting your anger, bottling it up, or trying to calm down without success. Perhaps you are already aware of how your anger is holding you back from success at work, or with personal relationships.
Anger management counseling can help you learn to respond proportionally and control the way you express your anger.
How your anger hurts you
Disproportionate responses to anger can cause immense harm. If you let your anger out on those around you, you could harm your relationships with your friends and family, especially with the children in your life. You may find that your anger pushes away your coworkers and supervisors, affecting your ability to succeed at work.
If you try to suppress your anger, it can hurt your physical and mental health. You may suffer from depression, hypertension, or high blood pressure. Learning how to be calm inside and avoid triggering your anger may seem difficult, but you can do it. We can help.
