Feeling angry is part of being human. It is a natural response to being attacked, insulted, deceived or frustrated
Anger can be useful, but it can also be frightening. When something makes you angry, adrenalin causes your body to prepare for ‘fight or flight’, giving you energy and making you feel tense. Releasing this energy and tension is good for you, but it can be difficult to do so in ways that are constructive. In most situations, fighting back or running away (‘fight or flight’) isn’t helpful and anger can often lead to responses that make things worse rather than better.
Inability to express anger or when it comes out at inappropriate times can create problems in our relationships and affect us in unhealthy ways.
It is important to recognise the situations that causes anger to come up in us and also how we may experience anger.
In our counselling sessions I can support you in a safe environment to find ways of expressing your anger in constructive ways.
By learning to be more aware of anger as it arises in our mind and body it can provide us with a strength to transform areas of our life were we feel stuck and live in more authentic ways.
