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.

Need more help deciding?

We’ve all experienced anger, but if your temper is hijacking your life, making you feel like you’re at the mercy of an unpredictable, overbearing, powerful emotion, it may be appropriate to use professional counseling or anger therapy to help with your anger issues.

Maybe you’ve felt the full spectrum — from fleeting annoyance to uncontrollable rage — maybe multiple times a week. And for the most part, some anger is to be expected in life. Anger is a basic human emotion, one that’s usually healthy and normal. But there are times it can get out of control and be destructive, hurting personal and professional relationships and one’s overall quality of life.  Anger therapy can help your relationships and career. Still, more importantly, it can help your health. In essence, those who are angry often experience frequent head and stomach pains, and uncontrolled anger can eventually lead to heart disease, elevated blood pressure, and cancer.

What Is Anger?

Anger is a strong feeling of displeasure. It is often a reaction to stress, failure, or injustice. Anger can range from mild irritation to full-blown rage. It is normal to experience anger. At times, anger is the appropriate response to the actions of others.

Anger is never without a reason, but seldom with a good one” -Benjamin Franklin

When managed correctly and kept in check, anger can be an essential ally to a healthy adult. But anger has risks, perhaps more than any other emotion. It can alienate people from others and lead individuals to do things they later regret. People who have lasting, extreme anger may find it helpful to explore its causes with a therapist. Call Thriveworks in Wilmington today for an appointment: (910) 247-4818 

Why Am I So Angry?

The causes of anger can vary; it may be triggered by external factors such as bullying, humiliation, and loss. Internal factors, such as frustration or failure, can also lead to anger. Sometimes a situation will unconsciously remind a person of a past experience. A person may displace their anger about the past onto the present situation. Some people experience anger from disappointment, either in themselves or someone else. As humans, we’re wired with the expectation that we’ll be treated fairly, so when that expectation is not met, it upsets us – it angers us!
