How counselling can help
Anger is a natural human emotion but we can experience it as overwhelmingly intense or feel that we have no control over it.
Counselling helps you to better understand how you experience anger. This includes triggers and particular situations that often result in an angry response. Counselling helps you to slow the anger response down, helping you recognise that you have more choice than you realise in how you respond to situations. This, in turn, helps you feel much more in control and not feeling like the dial will inevitably go from 1 – 10 each time.
Counselling can also help to better understand what your anger is about, and what may have contributed to it. This understanding is often an important part of making sustained change to how you react and respond to situations.
