“The man who gets angry at the right things, and with the right people, and in the right way, and at the right time, and for the right length of time, is to be commended.
– Aristotle –
Anger is a normal, healthy human emotion, which if not expressed, can lead to long-term consequences, such as anxiety, depression, irritability and a variety of physical complaints.
Anger can sometimes be a creative source of energy that helps us to move forward, and motivates us to change our lives. Some people, particularly women, are from an early age discouraged from expressing anger, and pay a price for being ‘too nice’. We may have internalised a number of beliefs that need reassessing.” Taken from The Mental Hand Book, Revised Edition 1992, Trevor Powell, pg66
Anger can be related to medical conditions so it is important to rule out those conditions. So if anger is a normal, healthy human emotion, which if not expressed, can lead to long-term consequences, such as anxiety, depression, irritability and a variety of physical complaints; then what is to be done with anger when we experience it?
It is not the anger that is the problem, more so, the way we react when we feel angry. The way we react is connected to our thoughts and feelings. Two people may get angry about the same situation, however, they may not react in the same way.
Once you master how you react when angry you can feel so empowered where anger can motivate you, and benefit you; however, it does have to be channelled.
HOW ANGER CAN MANIFEST ON MENTAL HEALTH?
I believe that unexpressed anger can lead to low mood, and that expressing your feelings including anger in a positive way keeps mood disorders at bay. Its so simple to learn. Its a case of gaining insight with the help of a professional who is not emotionally caught up in our anger.
PERSONAL ANGER TREATMENT PLAN:
It is important to seek a professional assessment to determine the best treatment plan. Everybody is unique, however, in my experience Cognitive Behavioural Therapy is an effective treatment plan for anger, although even just talking to a professional who is not emotionally caught up in what may feel like a turmoil, can help you to start to clear the pathway forward and recognise negative patterns that may be avoidable with insight.
I am an experienced counsellor, hypnotherapist and life coach. I find that all these areas of therapy can really help on the journey of managing anger.
Counselling (CBT): Working with the conscious mind to discuss the issues at a conscious level.
Hypnotherapy (Hypnosis): Working with the unconscious/subconscious mind and thus working with the subconscious to experience deep, deep, relaxation and accept positive suggestion for your own wellbeing.
Life Coaching (NLP): And further down the line, and probably much sooner, working towards a brighter future to reach be your optimum.
The above therapies are optional for you when working with me; as everyone is unique, I will advise and tailor the therapy to your individual needs collaboratively, however, ultimately you choose your pathway forward at your own pace and in your own time.
So call me and learn how it feels, or text me, on 07950 906421 to arrange your FREE PRE-INITIAL ASSESSMENT – I will be delighted to hear from you – leave a message if I am not available and I will get back to you.
Where I practise (as below) is very relaxing and therapeutic in its own right, and will help you to really connect to a relaxed and calm state; exactly the state you want to remain in when you are angry. When you are calm and relaxed you can think more clearly. This can be explained in more depth in a complimentary telephone consultation as offered. There are some images below of where I practise to help you get a feel as to where you would be coming to.
