Anger

Not what you're looking for? Here is a list of everything we can help with.

Anger is an important and useful emotion. But sometimes it gets out of hand and the tail is wagging the dog. It is important to understand and manage our anger to lead a life that works better for us and the people around us.

Research shows that experiencing frequent anger is a stronger predictor of dying young than better known risk factors such as high blood pressure, smoking or high cholesterol. Anger does more harm to the heart than any other emotion.

An angry person in a sense becomes stupid, because their higher brain function has been inhibited from working by the more primitive emotional part of  the brain taking control. Anger reduces immunity by lowering the white blood count that is one of our main mechanisms to fight infection.

Everyone who is capable of mental concentration and who is motivated to learn can be taught to control their anger. Anger is an addiction - we can learn to crave the high that an angry outburst gives us.

"Anyone can be angry, that is easy, but to be angry with the right person, to the right degree, at the right time, for the right purpose and in the right way - that is not easy"  - Aristotle

Person-centred therapy

Person-centered therapy uses a non-authoritative approach that allows clients to take more of a lead in discussions so that, in the process, they will discover their own solutions. The therapist acts as a compassionate facilitator, listening without judgment and acknowledging the client’s experience without moving the conversation in another direction. The therapist is there to encourage and support the client and to guide the therapeutic process without interrupting or interfering with the client’s process of self-discovery.
