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?

Many people don’t understand anger counseling and many others believe myths about it. The reality is that the purpose is not to prevent people from feeling anger. After all, anger is a normal human emotion that we all feel. The goal is to teach people how to react to and handle their anger in a way that doesn’t negatively impact their lives or the lives of others.

Anger in and of itself isn’t a bad thing

Anger is an emotion. Some people never feel more than mildly angry – which is classified as irritation – while others experience intense rage. Changes to the body happen when a person is angry, such as increases in adrenaline, energy hormones, heart rate, and blood pressure. Anger can be caused by a wide range of factors including old memories, worries about personal issues, or as a reaction to other individuals.

Assessing healthy anger levels

The reality is that we are not suited to assess our own anger levels to determine if they’re healthy. For that, people seek out anger counselors who can use psychological tests to gauge the intensity of anger. Factors include how the anger was handled and how often a person feels anger. It’s generally true that those who worry they have an anger problem likely do – otherwise they wouldn’t worry about it – but only an anger coach or counselor can make an assessment.

Anger counseling helps in a number of ways

There are many ways anger counseling can help people. Some of the benefits include:

  • Increasing understanding of anger triggers.
  • Discovering ways to respond to those triggers without aggression.
  • Changing reactions to and thoughts about triggering situations.
  • Relaxation, calmness, and peace even during bouts of anger.
  • An understanding of healthy ways and situations in which to be assertive.
  • Problem-solving techniques that empower clients.

Thriveworks Marietta, GA Counseling & Coaching is here to provide a personalized approach to an individual’s anger problems. This is a normal, healthy emotion that can easily get out of control. Through the help of a counselor, individuals can discover an inner peace and calmness they didn’t know was there.

Thriveworks helped me realize that I do believe people can change. I’m not the person I was three months ago, broken and fearful. I’m healthy and happy and for the first time being kind to myself. Thank you for giving me my life back.
