Anger is often the most accessible & immediate emotion available to us and yet, paradoxically, we often cannot access it. What we feel is detachment, emotional shut-down, sadness, fear, guilt, shame, low self-esteem, frustration or stress. Anger is an emotion that at the right time, needs to be acknowledged. Anger is an unacceptable emotion in our society so most of us learn to suppress it or channel it in different ways. But it has to go somewhere & often clients come to therapy needing to find ways to access a rage that is deep within them.
What we can help with
While acknowledging anger, we must also learn to manage it in order to sustain relationships & our own wellbeing. Together, we will learn to see the world from many different perspectives & really think about another person’s viewpoint. We will arrive at the root of your anger in order to help you underst& it. We will identify the triggers & learn how to avoid them. & we will develop a toolkit of coping strategies that will arm you to deal with situations as they arise.
