Anger Issues

Blowing up or losing your cool once in a while doesn’t necessarily mean you have an anger issue. But if you find yourself experiencing long-term feelings of anger or rage, which may also include aggressive, violent or self-destructive behaviors, you may be facing an anger management issue. Those experiencing anger issues may also have physical symptoms including high blood pressure, headaches, or fatigue. Whether your anger issue is caused by stress, genetics, hormones or your current environment, you don’t have to figure it out alone. Contact one of our specialists today.

Anger is often a trap that becomes too familiar and habitual. But anger is also a great motivator that helps us move mountains. How to find the golden mean where it is not dangerous, but empowers us to get things done? Mindfulness is a uniquely useful method for developing self-awareness whenever anger arises. Learning my individual anger triggers and cues is a good way to begin understanding how to shape my anger into the engine that creates better relationships and a joyful life.

Anger is a secondary emotion. This means that there are usually some other underlying feelings that are pushing it to the surface. This can be fear, sadness or humiliation. Also how we analyze what is going on outside of us, effects how we feel and act. Sometimes deep rooted issues are impacting our emotions. There are some strategies that can be used to help you regain control of your emotions.

I have been treating anger management issues for 15+ years. I ran an anger management group for 8 years. I use CBT to treat anger management issues to teach my clients how to monitor their anger, identify triggers, and look for cues. I provide my clients with ways to respond to anger-provoking situations instead of reacting to them. I also teach my clients the connection between stress and anger, and we discuss how anger is in reality a secondary emotion.

The anger we stuff in the moment only continues to build over time until it is released. Many people struggle to find healthy ways to express their anger. Helping a person learn to express their anger in acceptable ways that lead to positive change is transformative work. Anger management promotes relationship safety and satisfaction.

— Matthew Stevens, Licensed Professional Counselor in Woodbridge, VA

When you’re triggered, the “thinking” part of your brain shuts down, the fight or flight response takes over, and you react in explosive, self-defeating and harmful ways. Guess what; it’s not your fault. You didn’t choose to be triggered, did you? It’s not your fault that your brain evolved to keep you safe and alive at any cost. Your brain evolved to react—without thinking—to keep you safe. We can reprocess and heal your triggers so you no longer overreact in the absence of genuine threat.

Anger is a powerful emotion AND it's an energy we feel strongly in our bodies. The feeling of anger can often tell us that something isn't right in the current moment. It may also be the result of unmet needs that culminated in feelings of anger for you as a young child. When unaddressed, this anger continues into adulthood. There are many ways that anger can be addressed - through changing thoughts & beliefs, learning to express feelings & needs and more.

Anger has primary roots tied to Anxiety. When we feel threatened, we can enter one of our survival mechanisms, "fight" mode which produces anger. I start by taking the time to explore the root cause of anger and increase your awareness of your internal response with tangible coping skills. This supports you in reducing shame and guilt surrounding anger as well as increases your ability to regulate and communicate your emotions with confidence.
