Anger Management Counseling – Therapists and Counselors in Peachtree City

Those who’ve experienced intense rage often wonder: is this problem curable? Is there a way I can stop feeling so angry? The short answer is that no, there is no cure for anger – but there are solutions. Anger is not a disease. It is a normal, healthy emotion that virtually everyone feels. The problem only comes with it is not handled correctly.

Learning how to live with anger

There are many levels of anger ranging from mild irritation to intense anger. Experiencing any level of anger results in a range of physiological and biological changes to the body:

  • An increase in heart rate.
  • An increase in blood pressure.
  • An increase in energy hormones.
  • An increase of adrenaline.

Anger is caused by any number of factors, from old memories to interacting with specific individuals. Sometimes anger doesn’t seem to have a source – it just comes.

The first step in anger counseling

While the individual experience of every client will be different, for the most part the first step is to assess anger levels. Counselors will work closely with their clients to find out how intense their anger is, how they handle their anger, and how often they have anger.

Possible outcomes of anger counseling

The treatment plan for each client will specify what the goals of anger counseling are, and those goals will vary based on the individual situation. However, some methods that work for many people include learning to recognize anger triggers and learning how to respond to those triggers. Specific skills are taught to combat these triggers and clients learn how to identify times when they responded poorly to triggers.

Clients can learn how to be relaxed, calm, and at peace even when they’re experiencing the emotion of anger. They can also learn how and when to be assertive in a healthy way. Problem-solving skills are taught so clients feel empowered – which can often reduce the effects of anger triggers.

The advantage of working with a counselor or coach at Thriveworks Peachtree City Counseling & Coaching is that clients get a personalized experience. They can speak with an individual who will provide a thorough assessment and treatment plan specific to their needs.

A game changer for me!!

Without going on an on, but I may - - I feel that Stacey Franklin, my counselor, is literally the best kept se...Read more

cret (that I will not keep a secret) if you haven't met her - and if you have not been to Thriveworks yet, than that is the second best kept secret. Thriveworks is the most incredible counseling place that I have ever been to - when you walk in - it offers such a tranquil and serene atmosphere, where every counselor greets you with a very welcoming spirit. I have been to multiple counselors throughout my life, in multiple states, and it is without hesitation that this environment is incredible. When you call to schedule an appointment to meet with a counselor, they work really hard to try and match you with a counselor that best fits the struggles that you are going through - but at any point during your counseling sessions, if you feel that the match may not be perfect - they want you to be honest so that they can try and fix it, or match you with someone that may be a better fit for you within the practice or refer you to someone they know outside of the practice. That is what an amazing practice and counselor should do! Stacey is by far the BEST counselor I have every worked with. She is genuine, honest, skilled, raw, empathetic, compassionate, pneumatic, accepting, flexible, communicable, my safe place, and so VERY kind. Her aura is something I have never seen before and although I am on a life journey of discovery and acceptance, I am so thankful for her to be on this journey with me because I do not know what I would have done with out her. If you are reading this review and are wondering if this is the place for you - I challenge you to give it a shot - it was a life changer for me.
