Anger Counseling – Therapists and Counselors in Colorado Springs, CO
Traffic jams, a credit card that isn’t working, family conflicts, unanswered phone calls, being passed over for a work promotion…… think of all the frustrating events that happen each day! We could go on and on. How we handle these frustrations is key to our mental and physical health. Responses to anger vary from a short-lived irritation to a full-fledged rage, like the Incredible Hulk. We laugh when we see the Hulk act out, thinking it’s merely a fictional character. In reality, we may all know someone who thinks and acts like a different person when in a rage, or maybe it’s us. We are all on this spectrum of anger; it is an emotion everyone has.
What’s wrong with anger?
Anger is normal and even a healthy human emotion, when it is managed. When it is uncontrolled, it turns destructive. Destructive to personal relationships, families, work, and of course, mental and physical health. Anger brings out physical responses in the body such as:
- Increased heart rate
- Increased blood pressure
- Increase in chemicals such as adrenaline and noradrenaline
Continued anger responses cause long term effects on the nervous system and physical systems:
- Depression and anxiety
- Liver and kidney damage
- High cholesterol
- Increased risk of coronary artery disease
