If you experience intense anger it can be difficult to manage and this can lead to problems in your life.
Firstly, anger is not bad. It is an important emotion that has allowed us to protect ourselves and those we care about. However problems do occur if it isn’t understood and managed in the right way.

Three examples of clients presenting with anger issues.
1. Client arrived full of frustration and un-contained anger that was spilling onto family, work and few remaining friends. A punch bag helped to release and express some of the anger and then highlight a big unaddressed loss that was sitting inside the client. It was a very significant past bereavement which for understandable reasons had never been dealt with at the time, but which left them with considerable forgotten hurt and frustration. Once the loss was worked through with their therapist, their life was totally transformed – as were the lives of their family, work colleagues and friends.
2. Another person had been badly treated but didn’t have the words or knowledge to say what they needed, so felt resentful at everybody, loosing their temper at friends and family. They didn’t like what they were doing but felt helpless to change. As they were helped to uncover the hidden words & feelings, which they had never used, the anger was replaced with tears that led to some remarkable family scenes of reconnection. This proved life changing and a wonderful blessing for the present and future lives of the client’s children.
3. A third person had been treated badly but had avoided challenging this treatment. They were supported in finding their confidence to face up to the person involved. They found a positive & creative way of addressing it with the other person. This enabled them to stand up for themselves and restore their own self esteem – without feeling the need to be brutal or heavy handed or causing a negative reaction.
