Being unable to control your anger can be detrimental in a number of ways. Studies show that approximately one out of five Americans have an anger management problem and many people disclose that they’ve ended a relationship because of the way another person reacts when angry. One’s personal struggle with anger can be predominantly compulsory, so the first stage in developing restraint is the willingness to recognize that you have an anger management problem.
Restoration Counseling can work with you to develop coping mechanisms to control bouts of anger, giving you the skills and composure you need to face problems, head-on, without damaging your career or relationships, by exhibiting out of control anger.
There are many things that may cause you to lose your temper, to include, among others:
- Repressed emotions: Unhealthy or toxic feelings that you’re afraid to talk about
- Past trauma: Negative experiences that leave you feeling hurt and frustrated
- Negative learned behavior: Toxic behavior we learn during adolescence, which has a lasting effect.
- Mental health disorders, such as severe depression and mental anxiety
The experienced anger management counselors at Restoration Counseling will work with you to determine the situations in your life that provoke your anger, and develop ways to more effectively respond in those instances. By first identifying the causes of your anger, we can provide you with individual anger management strategies to quell your anger before things reach a boiling point or irreparable damage is done, in your career or personal relationships. Our empathetic counselors will teach you to understand the origin of your anger, and deal with it more effectively, allowing you to minimize your feelings of frustration, without abandoning your emotions, completely.
When anger threatens your livelihood, you may feel cornered and your fight or flight response can take over.
