Psychotherapy for Coping with Anger
Anger is a powerful emotion that can give you a way to express negative feelings. It can motivate people and groups to reach a resolution or spark a need for change. Uncontrolled anger can, however, negatively affect personal or social well-being. At a certain point, a person should consider the benefits of anger management counselling.
Some unhealthy ways to express anger include:
- Behavioural aggression
- Verbal abuse
- Chronic resentment
- Retaliatory anger
- Overwhelming anger during a situation
- Uncontrollable rage
If you find yourself experiencing any combination of the above, you may have a problem expressing anger. Seeking anger management therapy can aid you in understanding the root of your anger, as well as effective, healthy solutions for expressing it.
