Do you find yourself reacting disproportionately to situations?
It’s worth differentiating between anger and rage:
- Anger is a healthy signal that you need to protect yourself in a situation you’re facing right here, right now. Appropriate anger keeps you safe.
- Rage, however, is when your anger is no longer proportional to the situation. At these times you either lose it (hot rage), or carry on seething about what’s happened (cold rage).
Both hot and cold rage can corrode your own well-being, hurt others, and ruin your relationships.
How counselling can help you overcome your anger problems
Counselling gives you a calm space in which to talk about what’s going on in your life. This can help you calm down, feel better and regain control of yourself.
From my experience with clients, rage often has deep roots into past troublesome experiences: being terrified, hurt, shamed or abandoned when you were younger and when you lacked adequate protection.
Situations in your current life can spark these old memories, scare you, and put you on the offensive. In these moments it can feel like a switch has just been flicked inside of you. That’s completely understandable and nothing to be ashamed of.
Talking through these earlier troublesome experiences with a counsellor can bring a deep sense of relief. And by resolving things in your past, you won’t feel so angry in the present.
I provide a supportive and non-judgmental environment to help you overcome your anger or rage problems.
