Is anger, stress, verbal abuse or violence a problem for you in your relationship?
Do you find yourself losing your temper for little or no reason?
Have you hurt someone through your words or actions recently?
Do you experience frequent bouts of road rage?
All of us get angry at times. We may be stuck in traffic-late for an important meeting. We may argue with our husband or wife. We may be getting more and more frustrated with our children or work colleagues.
Regardless of the situation that is leading to our anger, it is vital that we are able to control our anger effectively. If not, verbal outbursts, shouting, swearing, put downs, silent treatment, throwing objects and even physically abusing someone we love can destroy relationships and families. Taking ones anger out on another is never okay. There are better ways!
How do I know if I have an anger management problem?
Often the best way to tell if you have an anger management problem is by other people’s responses. Are you partner or children afraid of you? Do you lose your temper easily? Do your workmates avoid you when you in a bad mood? Has your partner or family ever called the police to protect themselves from you?
If the answer to any of these questions is “Yes”, then it is likely that you have an anger management problem. Or some people, deep down in their gut know that they lose their temper too easily. They say the wrong things. They hurt people, emotionally, verbally or physically.
The short answer to this question is “Yes”. The last 25 years I have worked with over 3000 people with anger management issues. Many of these people have had no previous counselling or other treatment for anger. Some of these people have had mild anger management issues, resulting primarily in verbal abuse, arguments and the occasional loss of temper without damaging people or property. Other people have had severe anger management problems-acting in physically violent ways, being arrested, putting their jobs at risk and sometimes losing their relationships because of this anger.
My experience is that with the right tools anger management issues can be changed. Often this can take place relatively quickly. In counselling I use a mixture of awareness and cognitive-behavioural tools to assist people to identify the causes of their anger and to help them react to stressful situations in calmer, more relaxed and less aggressive ways.
By using these tools and techniques I have seen literally thousands of people become more relaxed and calm people. Anger management counselling can help people fix their issues with anger. People can become calmer and more relaxed. They can learn to heal relationships, make their families feel safe, improve work situations and enjoy their lives far more.
