Anger Management Melbourne: Gain control with individual counselling
If you suffer from excess anger you already know that it can make you feel out of control. You may also have realised that your anger often ends up hurting you just as it hurts those who are on the receiving end of your anger. Over time, unmanaged, excess anger is likely to destroy personal and work relationships that are important to you. Anger can also damage your physical, emotional and mental health and may even lead to unpleasant dealings with law enforcement officers. While your anger may usually be directed at others, you are also the victim of its destructiveness. Do you need anger management treatment?
Anger hypnotherapy or counselling treatment can help you regain control so you can rebuild those relationships, find peace and happiness and be more confident in your ability to manage anger (which is not about ignoring angry feelings, or reacting to them. It's a method of choosing your responses more skillfully).
Our anger management treatment is available at our Melbourne psychotherapy clinic or online via Skype. No matter where you live, you don't have to suffer with excessive anger – call us today on 9530 6353.
In defence of anger
At its core, anger is a normal and natural emotion. It is an emotion that alerts you to a perceived injustice or to something that isn't fair. Suppressing all anger or pretending you don't experience anger can be as unhealthy as expressing it inappropriately. Failing to express anger merely turns your anger inwards – and that can lead to depression and other health problems, mental and physical.
Do you need anger management counselling?
While an ability to feel anger appears to be a necessary instinctual response, it's likely you have an anger management problem if:
- you become angry frequently;
- your anger develops over very minor matters;
- anger causes you to harm others physically or emotionally;
- you harm yourself physically and emotionally by lashing out or trying to prevent lashing out;
- you become angry for no apparent reason;
The reasons behind excess anger vary and can include unprocessed grief, feelings of insecurity, criticism sensitivity, and low self-esteem, a loss of assertiveness and many other causes.
The cost of ignoring an anger problem will eventually become too high. Excess anger can not only ruin the relationships you value most, but can result in sleep problems, increased heart rate, and stomach and digestive disturbances. There are also concerns that hostility may be a contributing factor in heart disease and some cancers. Can you afford to ignore your anger problem?
