Anger MangementMany of us have been taught by parents, teachers and society that anger is bad. This is not true. Anger is a normal feeling - like joy, love or sadness. In fact, when we learn to identify angry feelings they become a useful warning system that something is wrong or that we have a 'no' about something that we are experiencing. Because so many of us associate angry feelings with being out of control or explosive behaviour, we tend to squash them down for fear that we will become an angry person ourselves.
Anger hides in many different behaviours; anxiety, self harming, withdrawing, sulking, blaming, crying and even gossip. Therapy with me will help you understand your relationship to your anger. When we stop being afraid of our anger, we are able to harness the information it contains and find constructive and appropriate ways of expressing it.
