Anger Management Therapy – Counselors and Therapists in Marblehead
If you’ve never worked with an anger counselor before then you’re likely to feel nervous and unsure about the process ahead of you. The good news is that you’re in good hands. You’re working with someone that has the training and experience to help you move forward in your life and become the type of person you’ve always wanted to be.
You’ll learn what anger is really all about
When people are asked what anger is they often say that something like, “It’s just when I get mad.” The truth about anger is that it’s an emotion. Just like sadness, happiness, jealousy, and other emotions, it’s natural and virtually everyone deals with it. However, not everyone responds to it in the same way. And that’s the key – learning how to handle anger when it comes up.
You’ll discover how anger changes you
You should understand that there are real physiological changes happening to you when you get angry. You may feel flushed, your blood pressure will rise, and your adrenaline levels will increase. These are natural responses that are milder in some people than in others. A big part of the reason some people respond more aggressively to anger than others is because of these physiological changes.
You’ll learn what you can and can’t control
You can’t necessarily change the physiological changes to your body but you can change what you do about them. The truth is that your feelings aren’t instructions. Just because you feel angry doesn’t mean you have to react accordingly. Your counselor can give you concrete tips on how to act better than you feel. They can help you dig deeper to understand the cause of your anger and to do something about the actual problem – not the way it presents itself.
