Imagine someone insults you, ridicules you, or neglects your needs - how do you feel? Most of us become angry. Anger is a real emotion we all feel but at times our anger can be immobilizing. At times it can lead us to lash out or to hold back something from someone. Everyone has different ways of expressing it and it is this expression that so often gets us into trouble.
It is important to remember that while feeling anger is not always a choice, we can choose what we do with that anger. Learning to manage anger is NOT trying to blunt or suppress feelings; rather, to learn to manage anger is to learn how to express it in a way that invites understanding as well as positive responses from others.
As your therapist, I can offer you warm and non-judgmental support to help you learn better, healthier and more effective ways to express this natural emotion.
