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.

Many individuals may be unaware that anger serves as a messenger emotion. Anger is a primary emotion that encompasses various subsystems of emotions. Metaphorically, anger is a vehicle transporting other emotions that are driving your anger. There are a multitude of reasons that can trigger anger; however, therapy can equip you with valuable techniques to gain a deeper understanding of the underlying causes driving your anger.

People think that anger is a simple emotion but really it comes from many places. Maybe you lash out when you are overwhelmed, stressed, annoyed, or hurt. You don’t mean to but you don’t know how else to deal. Maybe you are angry at not being treated like you deserve or things that are unfair. You are standing up for yourself. Maybe the anger is there to protect you from getting hurt again or from feeling sad. The anger acts as a wall to protect you.

— Rebecca Phifer-Ball, Licensed Clinical Mental Health Counselor in Greer, SC

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

Anger is a normal human emotion that warns us that something is being done to us that is threatening, unjust, or gets in the way of getting our needs met. Of course, we can become angry at ourselves for a variety of reasons. Anger by nature is not a “problem” nor does it always require “anger management.” Unfortunately, for many people, anger can become a problem . I help people for whom anger has become a problem through developing behavioral and emotional self-awareness, understanding about triggers and underlying causes, and effective coping skills (aka “tools”) that can help them manage their anger reactions in more constructive ways.

— Dr. Robert Nemerovski, Psy.D., Clinical Psychologist in San Rafael, CA

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.
