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 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 5 keys to mastering anger includes 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?

Many people don’t know how to handle anger in a healthy way. They feel out of control when something makes them angry. They try to stop feeling anger but it doesn’t work. This situation can make a person feel helpless but the good news is that there something that can help: anger counseling.

Focus on the right issue: Handling anger in a healthy way

It’s common for people to look for their own solutions and it’s common for them to think that help solution is to prevent themselves from feeling anger. The truth is that this simply isn’t possible. Anger is nothing more than an emotion – everyone feels it. The real answer is not to prevent it but to deal with it in a healthy way.

The best way to deal with feelings of anger

There is no simple answer on how everyone should handle anger. For some people, it’s as simple as leaving any situation that causes them to be angry. Others don’t have that luxury. For some people, breathing exercises can work. For others, this is not helpful. The truth is that only one on one counseling can help a client find the specific answer that will work for them in their unique situation.

Finding the underlying triggers can be a key component to anger counseling

In many cases, there are underlying causes for triggers. For example, a person may be angry at their boss because they don’t feel that their ideas are being taken seriously. The answer to this particular trigger could be as simple as communicating calmly with their boss that they don’t feel heard.

In another case, a person could have had a negative experience with an authority figure when they were a child. This could cause them to be angry at every authority figure they come across in adulthood. This may require deeper counseling to find a solution.

No matter what the cause is, an anger counselor is the best solution to out of control anger. Thriveworks Fredericksburg, VA Counseling & Coaching can help clients deal with anger – and change their lives forever. Call today at 540-322-5424.

Ann is a great listener, but she is also helpful with strategies for coping and communicating. She does more than "validate feelings."

I had the best luck with finding Krista! She helped me through so much. The doctors were quick to put me on several medications which made me feel worse with my anxiety and depression. So she helped me find different natural ways of coping. She had the best advice, it was honestly kind of a sad day when I realized I didn’t need her anymore. But I know who I’m going back to if I ever need someone to talk to again! Krista if you see this please know you helped save my life! Thank you!

Happy with everything except the 48 hr cancellation policy. 24hrs is pretty standard and more feasible when you have children.

I’m very relieved to have finally started therapy sessions with Robert. It’s taken me a while to make this move towards dealing with some outstanding hurts. I’m certain I’ve come to the right place.
