Anger is the natural and healthy fight-or-flight response to a perceived threat or harm. It is common to feel anger if you’ve been wronged or mistreated. It can be overwhelming to feel as if you’re at the mercy of this unpredictable emotion. Feeling anger often, feeling angry to an extreme degree, or bottling it up can negatively impact a person’s psychological wellness. Your response to this emotion can impede your rationale, decision-making skills, or relationships if it’s not embodied in a healthy and empowering way.
Anger management is the process by which people can recognize their triggers to handle stressful situations calmly and positively. We will help you gain awareness into the way your body responds or reacts to perceived threat or harm by identifying your emotional reactions to severe or minor frustrations. We work with you to discover the distinction between types of triggers, and the appropriate responses. We guide you in developing healthy ways to embody and express your emotions effectively.
Are You Too Angry?
Several psychological tests have been developed to measure the extent and intensity of angry feelings. The outcome of the test will indicate how inclined to anger the person may be, and how well these situations are handled. By late teen years and early adulthood, the individual may sense that their responses to anger are of concern or they may have been told they have issues with anger control. When the person senses that they have lost control of their emotions and this becomes frightening, this individual needs assistance with controlling behavioral responses to anger.
