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 quick 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 when it is not handled correctly.
“Anger doesn’t solve anything. It build’s nothing,
but it can destroy everything.”
–Lawrence Douglas Wilder

Negative Effects of 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. And sometimes, anger doesn’t seem to have a source—it just comes. If you’re experiencing the above effects far too often because you are constantly angry and you don’t know how to control this emotion, reach out to Thriveworks Peachtree.
Anger Management Counseling: Here’s How It Works
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.
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 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.
