Anger Therapy Sessions Across Marlborough
Many people seeking therapy for anger-related difficulties are those who express anger in ways beyond the usual irritability and frustrations that can be felt and expressed by us all at times. Others seeking help around anger might be struggling with not expressing anger clearly enough, allowing themselves to be bullied.
Struggles in response to feelings of anger can therefore extend to violent and aggressive behaviour or shrinking away and not setting clear boundaries with others. Many of my clients are facing a form of life crisis, which may have been caused by the impact of their angry outbursts or difficulties defining themselves, either in the wider society or at home.
If you are having trouble controlling your anger and believe it may be harming other people and/or yourself emotionally or physically, I can offer support in delving deeper so you can understand and accept the deeper feelings under your anger or fear and find a voice that can be heard.
I offer confidential therapy sessions for clients in Aldbourne near Hungerford, in Marlborough for clients in the surrounding region as well as in London. In addition I run regular Working with Anger weekends in London.
What Are Anger Management Problems?
While we all experience feelings of frustration or anger from time to time as a natural human response to difficult situations, anger can become a problem that benefits from therapeutic support if it harms you or people around you.
Some detrimental problems associated with anger don't only relate to physical acts of aggression, as anger turned inward can cause negative thoughts, resentment and criticalness along with passive aggressive behaviour. Living with unresolved anger, however it's expressed, can affect your overall mental and physical health.
Your relationships at work and at home can be affected by unresolved anger. Therapy can help you see things that you can't see about how you're thinking, feeling and behaving. You can then understand the underlying issues, identify and feel hidden emotions and help organise new ways of behaving. Thinking, feeling and responding are all behavioural habits, so of course being angry for a long time can leave you with habits that are difficult to recognise, let alone change. Therapy can help you recognise and make these changes, leaving you with more compassion for your previously-denied experience and more choice of response once you've learned to notice and allow sensations of frustration, hurt, injustice, sadness, fear and other feelings as they arise.
