Do you feel like your anger has control over you? Do you find yourself getting angry more often than not? Has your anger hurt people that you care about? Is it difficult for you to let your anger go?
If so, then therapy might be the right fit for you. The goal of anger counseling is to help you control your anger instead of continuing to allow your anger to control you. One of the first steps in the process is giving you ways to control the impulse to do or say something that you will regret. Although there are several strategies, the goal is to find what fits and works best for you.
After finding a way to control the impulse of anger, the plan is to understand what is going on under the hood. This is when we will work through questions like “When did you begin to notice your anger become an issue?” “What was your experience with anger growing up?” and others. One of the purposes of looking under the hood is to discover what makes you resort to anger instead of other feelings and why. Once we figure that out, we can begin to address the problem at its root.
Anger counseling can be tough, but the process is rewarding. If you have any questions about anger, or would like to schedule a consultation, feel free to contact us or schedule an appointment!
