Anger

Intense and persistent angry feelings can cause real distress to you and others around you, whether you keep it in or have regular outbursts. Anger is an aroused state in which the mind becomes focussed on a potential threat. As a result, the body gets ready to run or fight. It may feel exhilarating or paralysing, terrifying, shameful, and out of your control.

Our therapists can help you understand and manage your anger. In particular, they can help you identify what triggers your anger, where it may stem from in the past and how it can mask other feelings. Rather than trying to get rid of anger, therapy can help you acquire the skills and practice to live with it more comfortably and express it safely and calmly.
