Anger Management 101 – Therapists and Counselors in Atlanta, GA

There are many levels and types of anger problems. Some people feel only minor irritation but react irrationally and suffer serious consequences. Others experience extreme rage that leaves them feeling out of control. No matter where you fall on the spectrum there is help out there for you.

Gain a healthy understanding of anger

The first thing to understand is that anger is not the problem. After all, anger is just an emotion. It is not an instruction. We have options. We can act better than we feel – but first we must understand how to do so. For some people it comes naturally and others must large how to deal with anger in a healthy way.

Discover your anger triggers – and what lies underneath them

Anger can be caused by pretty much anything. Sometimes it’s the outside world, sometimes it’s something inside ourselves. No matter if it’s aimed at another person or is caused by worrying about personal problems, or even memories of an event, it’s important to uncover the triggers for your anger.

Once you know what those triggers are your counselor can help you investigate them further. For example, some people who don’t feel that their opinions are being heard will get angry about it. Instead of making their opinions and feelings clear they act out.

Finding the right way to deal with anger

Avoiding anger is not a realistic goal. Everyone is frustrated by people, places, and things at some point in their lives. The goal instead is to find healthy ways to deal with. An anger counselor can assist you in finding healthy ways to respond to triggers.

Problem-solving skills can help clients react to things in a fruitful way. For some people, anger comes from feeling powerless. When there are specific steps to take to solve a problem it can lead to empowerment – which can lead to healthy responses to anger.

There is no one-size-fits-all solution to anger problems. That’s why Thriveworks Atlanta, GA Counseling & Coaching works one-on-one to give our clients the personalized help they need.
