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
  • Increased risk of a heart attack

Clearly, Anger has a huge impact on our personal and social lives. If this is something you struggle with, there is good news – strategies can be learned to managed your anger

Learning to manage anger, so it doesn’t explode onto those around you and doesn’t damage your insides, is completely possible! Here are a few of the strategies used:

  • Learning strategies for relaxation

  • People are avoiding you
  • You’ve lost relationships
  • People are afraid of talking with you

Jerry was Amazing!

Jerry was amazing! Jerry uses choice theory in order to help his patients grow and work through their problems...Read more

. Choice theory was helpful through my relationship counseling but also could be used individually to helps each person grow themselves. Jerry used real scenarios in order to water down the theory, making it less scientific and more geared toward individual use. Jerry was patient, helpful, and very understanding.
