“Holding on to anger is like grasping a hot coal with the intent of throwing it at someone else; you are the one who gets burned.” ~ Buddha
While anger is a natural response to various situations, events, thoughts or feelings, it can sometimes become uncontrollable and excessive, having a negative impact on the individual, as well as professional and personal relationships. Excessive and prolonged anger can also take a tremendous toll on the body, causing a number of issues with the heart, digestive systems, sleep patterns, etc.
- Do you find yourself becoming angry often and easily?
- Does your partner and family describe you as having a ‘short fuse’, or ‘hot headed’?
- Are you having difficulty in your relationships because of your anger?
- Are your children afraid of your anger?
- Did you grow up in a household of ‘yellers’?
- Have you ever been involved in a physical altercation or destroyed or damaged property because you where angry?
- Do you have legal issues because of your anger?
- Do you lose your temper in traffic, or with ‘stupid’ people?
- Do you have high blood pressure, digestive issues, insomnia, heart issues, etc?
Whether anger has been a short or lifelong issue for you, we will work with you to first identify the way your anger uniquely operates, and then provide you with a variety of mind/body techniques to help you manage your anger. Because we view anger as a secondary emotion, our therapists will also work with you on discovering the underlying emotions that are being expressed as anger. Sometimes, anxiety, sadness, guilt or other emotions can be hidden underneath angry feelings. Anger can also serve as an internal “GPS system” in disguise. When viewed consciously and mindfully it may be providing information or a signal that a change or shift in one’s life is needed.
We also have extensive experience working with court-ordered anger management clients, and can provide a designated number of sessions to suit your needs.
