Anger Management Counselling in Paddington and West London
Is your anger causing a problem in your life?
Anger is a natural emotion, but can become destructive if not contained. A counsellor can support you to learn how to manage better your anger in challenging situations.
Have you ever been so angry that you want to throw things or shout at somebody? Perhaps the stress of work, day-to-day life, or financial issues push you to the point of wanting of losing control.
Does your anger make you feel guilty or ashamed once the anger has died down?
If you feel this way, anger management counselling may be able to help you.
Why do we get angry?
Many people have experienced their ‘blood boiling’ as anger surges. Being told that you have anger issues doesn't help. Remember that anger is a natural part of our defences. Anger is an energy that rises up in response to perceived boundary violations, whether in the past or present. Getting angry from time to time is unavoidable.
Anger is part of the body's system that alerts us to danger and helps us respond to threats. When we get angry, a chain reaction is set in motion whereby our body prepares us to fight; our heartbeat gets faster and adrenaline rapidly circulates throughout the body. You will probably notice a rush of energy and blood to your hands, shoulders and face.
When anger becomes chronic it can, over a prolonged period, have a negative effect on our health. Increased cortisol, which is the stress hormone, causes a host of negative health outcomes including weight gain, high blood pressure, muscle pain, insomnia, anxiety and depression.
Understanding what triggers anger within you
One of the challenges of anger management is controlling situations that make you angry. You can learn to be in control of your thoughts, feelings and emotions about how you respond to ‘trigger’ situations.
You can learn not to shout at your children.
You can learn not to be provoked by your partner.
You can learn not to get frustrated by work.
With anger management counselling you can learn to handle all kinds of anger issues ranging from frustration that is quite mild, to violent outbursts of rage. A counsellor will offer a confidential safe space for you to talk through how and why your is triggered. They will explore your anger and other emotions that might be troubling you, such as shame, fear, guilt or embarrassment.
