Overcoming anger with counselling

Do you have a short temper? Have you noticed your anger is getting more and more out of control? The rage inside is exploding without you having the time to think about, what it is you are saying or doing?

Small little triggers are setting you off, it is beginning to affect relationships with the people in your life? Have you tried talking to someone ? Are they are to listen and really understanding how you are feeling. but they don’t’ know how to help you.

Maybe, you experienced a personal loss but never had a chance for closure and the pain carries on. Anger comes easily when we feel hurt physically or emotionally. People cite a lack of self-worth, being misunderstood or not listened to. These feelings can lead to pent up frustration which turn into uncontrollable outbursts, before the person is overcome with shame.

People are unaware that anger is a secondary emotion and we use it to protect a vulnerable part of ourselves from being hurt. Counselling can help you explore what is really making you feel angry and support you with any pain, shame or abuse you may be suppressing.

If we can visualise anger as an iceberg: what we can see is the tip but what is really going on below could be a number of issues that have built up over time.

For example, clients who choose to work with me, have reported that they find peace and awareness through our working relationship. This is because they feel they have gained back control of their emotions rather than letting their emotions control them.

You deserve to be at peace and feel safe. If there is one positive choice you can make today for certain, it would be seeking help through counselling.
