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?

Anger is as natural to us as joy, pain, or fear. It does us much good: warns us of dangerous situations, gives us the needed push to get us out of danger, and helps us distinguish between right and wrong. When anger is healthy, it’s a good thing.

But what happens when anger slips into unhealthy? This new, unmanaged anger quickly turns from protecting us, to harming us. It controls and consumes us by blocking our decision-making process and pushes us into situations that are dangerous.

If you live with your anger always on a tight leash, scared of letting it go even an inch, then you understand this feeling well. The good news is that it is possible to turn your anger into something healthy and constructive again. Unhealthy anger is exhausting, but it isn’t forever. 

The anger management counselors in Pueblo, CO understand the many layers of anger. There’s a lot that goes into such a simple emotion, but none of it is a personal flaw. Trouble controlling anger stems from a mix of psychological, neurological, and situational factors. You are not inherently a bad or weak person, you are just someone who, like the rest of us, is not perfect.

Thriveworks Pueblo has anger management counseling sessions available today. To find your freedom from anger, give a call at 719-838-6383.

When Might my Anger be Out of Control?

Anger exists on a spectrum, so what constitutes as out-of-control mostly depends on you. Ask yourself: are you happy with your anger levels? Are your relationships strained? Are you accomplishing your goals? Is your physical health suffering? Have close friends or family confronted you about your anger?

Whatever you decide, remember that it does not make you a bad person. Anger is just another natural human experience that when left unmanaged can progress to a pathological level, just like anxiety, grief, and even joy. 

At Thriveworks Pueblo, we take an individualized approach to your anger. No one will deal with anger the same way, and therefore every counseling session should be adapted to fit your needs. It won’t happen right away, but together we can free you from the burden of anger.

Anger management counseling might be right for you if you are experiencing:

  • Relationship issues
  • Difficulties coming to an agreement or compromise
  • Isolation
  • Self-harm, a common symptom of internal anger
  • Difficulty working with other people
  • Frequent clashes at work (of any manner)
  • Problems expressing emotions in healthy ways
  • Feeling unheard or unable to express desires; unsatisfied
  • Frequent aggressive swearing, yelling, or violent actions
  • Substance abuse or addiction
  • Anxiety, depression, insomnia, or changes in weight and eating are common symptoms of an anger management problem

The negative impacts anger can have on your life can stretch far beyond this list. However, problems will anger management will always have one common thread: the life you want to live and the life you are currently living don’t match up.

Where do you want to be in life? Thriveworks Pueblo can help you get there.

How Does Anger Management Therapy Work?

Thriveworks Pueblo will meet you where you’re at- whether you’re just starting out on your anger management journey or have been on the road for a while, whether you’re here by court-mandates or by your own intuition, or whether your anger is heavily external or mostly internal. We strive to be a nonjudgmental, empathetic counseling session that always puts the client first.

  • What triggers my anger?
  • What are the physical or internal signs my anger is getting out of control?
  • What coping mechanisms work for me?
  • How can I hold myself accountable (or who can help me do so)?
  • What steps can I take after getting angry to return to a healthy state of mind?
  • Are there any deep-rooted behaviors, thought patterns, or events that are causing my anger?

In the moment of an anger outburst, it can feel like you have no choice but to go where the anger leads you. After that moment, you might feel weighed down by guilt, shame, and despair. Anger will tell you the lie that it will break you out of your confines, but time after time, it is the thing that cages you in. This process is exhausting and limiting. It is not what you deserve. Thriveworks Pueblo anger management counseling is here to help you truly break free by taking control of your anger.
