Anger management can be helpful if you feel your anger is out of control or is upsetting those around you. Feeling angry is a natural human response to certain life experiences. It’s a basic emotion, occurring at times when we come under attack, feel deceived, upset, insulted or frustrated. Anger helps to relieve built-up energy and tension. Whilst expressing anger can be a healthy way of managing the emotion, when excessive or out of control it can become a problem. Excessive anger can be a symptom of, and contribute to, certain mental health problems.
Anger is just one of a spectrum of emotions that we all feel. It is in an important part of what keeps us safe against perceived or actual threats. When it can become a problem however is when the feelings of anger do not reduce or are expressed in aggressive and threatening behaviours both physical – such as breaking objects or driving recklessly – and verbal, such as swearing or using threatening language.
Prolonged and intense anger can have negative effects on your body, including: high blood pressure, headaches, insomnia, increased risk of stroke or heart attack. Improperly managed anger can also affect your mental health, causing issues such as: depression, low self-esteem and alcohol or drug abuse. The out of control nature of unchecked anger can change the way you feel about yourself and others. It can place serious strain on relationships both personal and professional.
At The Eaves our specialist counsellors and psychotherapists can help you to learn to recognise what provokes your anger and identify the warning signs. It provides you a safe place to practice these new skills and explore healthier ways to express your anger so that you can respond differently, and ultimately take back control of your life.
