We have all felt anger at one time or another: whether it was just an annoyance, or full-blown rage. Anger can be a positive emotion, as it is a venting of a feeling which could be destructive to our health if kept inside of us. But we can’t lash out at every person or situation that irritates or annoys us.
When anger becomes a habit rather than an occasional occurrence, or gets out of control and turns destructive, anger management may be required. Ongoing, prolonged anger can affect the immune system and result in other mental health issues. It can tear apart relationships and ruin familial ties.
The root causes of anger are often buried in the past, even if the trigger is in the present. Some people’s backgrounds and upbringing can influence how they cope with anger. It may be that your parents were overly angry and violent when you were younger, so you were brought up to believe this behaviour is normal. The way you were treated in the past may be making it difficult for you to contain your anger now.
Recognising that you have a problem with anger can be difficult. You may think being angry is just the way you are, or you may not recognise your symptoms as anger-related. You may think other people are responsible for making you angry and it is not your problem to solve.
Either way, clinical hypnotherapy may be the solution.
Not only can it help identify the underlying source of your anger, through hypnoanalysis, it can facilitate change in any unhelpful thought patterns at a subconscious level. Clinical hypnotherapy can also provide a person with distraction techniques to try to avoid an angry outburst.
Anger management clinical hypnotherapy can also help with the symptoms of anger. For example, if you are suffering from anxiety, stress or depression hypnotherapy can be helpful. To discuss your anger management issues, or those of someone you love, contact me now.
