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?

Even though anger isn’t a pleasant emotion, it’s normal to experience. All types of situations can make us angry—sometimes only briefly, like when we’re cut off in heavy traffic. And stronger moments of anger, like if someone discovers their spouse has been part of an extramarital affair, can last longer. 

But continually experiencing deeper anger or rage in a way that feels uncontrollable or unresolvable, can become a serious problem for oneself and others. Over time, it can end up affecting an angry individual’s ability to function. 

That’s why anger management counseling is helpful and by working with a provider, people with anger management difficulties can better harness their emotions and work toward building (and using) healthier responses to stressful situations. If you believe you could benefit from anger management counseling, consider scheduling a session at Thriveworks Counseling & Psychiatry Round Rock today.

What Is Anger Management Counseling?

Anger management counseling is a therapeutic process in which an anger management counselor and their client focus on identifying the triggers of the client’s anger. Then, once identified, a therapist will teach their client how to handle these emotions in a more positive, productive way. 

It’s important to remember that anger management counseling can’t realistically remove all the sources of anger from a client’s life or emotional range. Even though it’s not a warm, fuzzy emotion, anger isn’t always unhealthy and it’s normal. That’s why anger management counseling’s goal isn’t to eliminate anger, but to ensure that it’s better managed.  

Types of Anger Management Treatments

To better manage and express anger, therapists teach their clients a variety of techniques, including:

  • Meditation
  • Mindfulness-based approaches
  • Breathing strategies
  • Relaxation tactics
  • Thought replacement 
  • Positive thinking
  • Impulse control
  • Self-awareness

These coping techniques used in anger management counseling are supplements to a main approach which often includes cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), group therapy, and play therapy for kids. 

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT)

Cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) is an effective treatment option for clients seeking assistance in controlling their anger. This is due to CBT’s short-term, goal-oriented approach. CBT is a form of anger management counseling that helps clients to quickly recognize when they’re starting to become angry. 

Thought replacement is a strategy that’s often beneficial in anger management counseling. Basically, it involves evaluating the situation that has caused the client to become angry, and searching for a solution or next step that helps them avoid losing control of their temper. 

Group Therapy

Led by a professional, group therapy sessions help clients to bond with other people who are experiencing similar anger management issues. Group therapy has a unique advantage that helps you to feel less alone during treatment.

Some types of group therapies are family-based, while others are based on age, gender identity, and other factors. Group therapy is not usually the treatment option when it comes to anger management counseling; it’s typically used as a supplement to individual therapy. 

Play Therapy

Play therapy is a form of anger management counseling that’s often used specifically for young children who may struggle to express their emotions. During play therapy anger management counseling sessions, a child therapist will use different forms of play, such as puppets, sand boxes, art projects, music, or other child-friendly activities. 

Play therapy can be an effective anger management counseling tool to teach young children to communicate and better cope with difficult emotions such as anger without lashing out verbally, physically, or having a tantrum. 

How Does Anger Management Counseling Work?

Regardless of the therapeutic approach, anger management counseling encourages clients to examine what’s causing their anger and to explore those emotions, including the consequences of losing their temper. After adequate time is spent exploring the triggers, natural reactions, and consequences of uncontrolled anger, an anger management therapist will teach clients how to correct their inappropriate or harmful behavior over time. 

Going deeper, anger management therapists can even use anger management counseling as a way to uncover underlying symptoms of grief, depression, trauma, anxiety—any other mental health issues that could be making their anger more intense.

I was skeptical at first about having my teenage son see a therapist via online care because of his reluctance to attend therapy, his history, and his trauma. But Madison Vencill has been absolutely AMAZING! I cannot express how well my son has done with therapy with Madison. She was super patient with him and let him open up at his own pace. She truly cares about her patients and always has my son’s best interest at heart. She is always quick to alert me to any concerns while at the same time not betraying my son’s confidence. She responds to emails typically within a couple of hours. She is just an all around amazing therapist!! Now whenever my son is upset or stressed he always says he will “talk to Madison” about it! She is hands down AMAZING and has done wonders for my teenage son. Thank you Madison for helping my son!

Aimee Corona is incredibly skilled, compassionate, encouraging, and knows when to exercise "tough love" to help the client become more confident and guide them through their recovery. She has a very whole person approach and works to get to know the client without judgment. Her goal in our family and individual treatment has been to help us heal, grow, and become more confident independently. She has always held our best interest at heart and is incredibly professional. I highly recommend Ms. Corona.
