Do you feel angry or are you experiencing symptoms that may be linked to anger?
“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, moreso 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.
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.
Where I practise 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. There are some pictures below of where I practise to help you get a feel as to where you would be coming to.
