Anger counselling in London
Anger is an emotion that we all feel from time to time and isn't necessarilly a problem. However, it can become a problem when someone gets angry too often or too excessively. Anger is also problematic if it leads to dangerous behaviour or gets in the way of attaining, rather than achieving, an individual's goals.
The most effective approach to overcoming unhealthy anger is Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT). CBT demonstrates how anger problems are caused by unhelpful thoughts and beliefs. The solution involves decreasing the physiological arousal using relaxation techniques and methods to change thoughts.
It is important to get an understanding of the what triggers a person's anger. We may not have controlof external situations, such as work stress, but we can control our thoughts, behaviours and physical reactions. CBT teaches people how to problem-solve in a way that is more likely to get ones needs met and to learn conflict resolution skills.
