Starting Anger management therapy

Can you get a therapist for anger issues?

Yes, there are therapists who help with anger via Anger management therapy. It’s a therapeutic process that an individual goes through to manage their anger and identify its triggers. They’re given clear instructions on how to improve their angry behavior as well as a safe space for opening up about their emotions.

How does anger management therapy work?

Once an individual’s triggers are identified, anger management therapy focuses on helping the individual process and respond to these emotions in a more positive and productive manner. The anger management therapist will provide coping strategies and ultimately help their client take back control of their anger.

What are the 5 keys to controlling anger?

The five keys to mastering anger include identifying triggers, pausing before reacting, calmly expressing emotions, discovering constructive outlets for frustration, and seeking professional assistance if necessary. Acquiring these skills through Anger management therapy empowers individuals to effectively manage and navigate their anger.

What is the best therapy for anger management?

The best therapy for anger management often involves cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), which helps individuals identify and change patterns of thinking and behavior related to anger.

Is anger management therapy conducted in person or online?

Anger management therapy at Thriveworks is conducted both in person and online by video. We encourage you to choose the option that works best for you.

How many sessions do I need for anger management?

Often, Anger management therapy lasts between 4-6 weeks. However, it can last longer, dependent on the individual’s needs.

Need more help deciding?

Would you describe yourself as an angry or “hot-headed” individual? Would others? If so, you could likely benefit from anger management. This is the process of identifying when you’re becoming angry and taking the necessary steps to calm down so you can then deal with the situation at hand productively. Anger management is not meant to eliminate you of angry feelings; in fact, anger is a normal and healthy emotion. It only becomes a problem when we don’t know how to respond to or express our anger properly.

“Anger is never without a reason, but seldom with a good one.” –Benjamin Franklin

What Is Anger Management? How Can It Help?

As we just touched on, anger management helps people understand when they’re becoming angry and take the necessary steps to calm down so they can then deal with the situation at hand appropriately. The ultimate mission is for you to stay relaxed and in control. You might need some anger management help if you…

  • Constantly struggling to hold back your angry outbursts

How Does Anger Management Counseling Work?

Anger management counseling can be done in an individual or a group setting. The specifics will depend on your unique needs. For example, if you frequently lash out at your partner and think it’s important for them to attend counseling with you, your counselor may agree. Additionally, the number of sessions as well as their duration will also depend on your specific needs and goals. Your counselor will determine the specifics as they get to know you and your unique situation.

When you begin anger management, your Thriveworks counselor will help you identify any triggers as well as familiarize yourself with common signs of anger. This is a huge step in learning to control your anger. Start thinking about the following to kickstart the process:

  1. What makes you feel stressed? Stress often triggers or exacerbates anger. Common stressors include traffic and arguments with others.
  2. How do you feel physically when you’re angry? You likely exhibit physical signs of anger that can help you better understand when this emotion is creeping in. For example, your jaw might tighten or your heartrate might pick up.
  3. How do you feel emotionally when you’re angry? You probably exhibit some emotional signs of anger, too! Do you feel like you’re holding something back? Do you feel the need to yell or scream?

Don’t worry, your anger management counselor can help you work through the above questions. They will do everything they can to help you better manage and control your anger.
