Anger is as integral of an emotion as happiness. It is important for you to feel anger because it indicates that you are passionate about something or someone. However, if you tend to express your anger in a violent manner (shouting, throwing objects, or inflicting physical pain on yourself or someone else), you are likely causing destruction in relationships and it is critical for you to seek professional help. Uncontrollable anger is a vicious cycle because the more you lash out at those around you, the less they will want to have a relationship with you, and the more angry you will become.
What is Anger Management?
Anger Management is the process of identifying stressors that trigger you and utilizing tools to reel in your anger. The goals of anger management therapy are to learn to control your reactions and to respond in an appropriate manner.
Anger can be the result of various factors, which can be divided into two categories: internal events, such as injustices or unmet personal expectations, and external events, such as a break ups or job losses. People also express anger internally and externally. Internal anger could consist of depression, whereas external behaviour could involve verbal abuse or arguments. Anger management issues often correlate with an addiction or substance abuse. Those with anger management issues will lash out and gain temporary relief, but working with a professional to truly cope with obstacles is a longer-lasting solution.

How can therapy help?

A therapist will teach you the skills to managing your emotions and regaining control. They will help you reveal underlying stressors or trauma that is causing the anger and provide you with coping mechanisms. It might sound daunting to uncover the source of your anger with a therapist, but anyone can learn to manage their anger and it is much more achievable with help from a professional.
