Anger is a common problem. It can harm wellbeing, physical health and get in the way of happy relationships. We tend to think of anger as an emotion in itself, yet anger is often a reaction to deeper emotions. These can be hurt, frustration, humiliation and others.
The human brain is built to “react to survive” and because of this it’s easy to skip across other emotions and go straight to anger.
In your therapy sessions, I can help you to identify the root cause of your anger; often experiences from the past, and understand the connections between your relationships from then and now.
I’ll also show you how to identify those other emotions which sit behind your anger, embrace them, and let them go before you get to the anger stage.
I’ll also teach you specific techniques such as Emotional Freedom Techniques, EFT, which you can then practice in your own time. These techniques are excellent for helping people permanently release distressing emotions which have been hijacking happiness. In this way, you’ll be able to deal with life’s challenges in more rational and calmer ways.
