Are you a person who tends to get “hot headed” or has trouble controlling your temper? Do you succumb to road rage on your commute home each day? Have your angry outbursts damaged more than a few friendships or even your career? Do you think you could benefit from anger management therapy?
Anger Management may be something that Hollywood jokes about, but the truth is that it’s a real technique that people use each day to improve things like:
At The Dell Center for Therapy, our Park City therapists work with Summit County and Salt Lake City; while our Jupiter/Palm Beach Gardens therapists work with Palm Beach County individuals to find better ways to cope and manage their frustration and angry outbursts, so they can improve their outlook on life and live a healthier lifestyle. Through cognitive behavioral therapy, progressive relaxation, and counseling, it’s possible for people with “Type A” personalities to reduce their inclination to become angry or have public outbursts of rage.
Having an angry personality doesn’t just break up homes and friendships, it can make you unhealthy. People with severe anger issues tend to suffer more from physical ailments such as heart disease, high blood pressure, or mental health conditions like depression and anxiety. But you are not the only one who suffers; your loved ones do too. Getting professional help isn’t just for yourself, it’s also for the people that you love.
Sometimes our source of anger comes from underlying causes that we’re not able to pinpoint: such as the death of a family member, chronic illness, a cheating spouse, or other lifestyle changes. Being able to process those stressors can better equip you with how to manage the tension building up inside of you, before you start to feel like you’re boiling over.
Anger issues can affect any age; although most people tend to associate anger management therapy with adults, children may struggle with it as well. After all, the younger a person is, the less experience they have with processing their feelings and changing the way they react to them. An anxious or depressed child may turn into an angry adult if they don’t get attentive professional help.
Even if you’ve waited years to see a Park City or Jupiter/Palm Beach Gardens anger management therapist, it’s not too late.
During your counseling session, you’ll learn different types of cognitive behavioral techniques to help you process the source of your anger in a healthier manner. Other things to supplement your energy and tension can include techniques like:
Allow yourself to understand that anger is a natural, healthy emotion. It helps us protect ourselves and the people that we love. But when we’re not able to express our anger in a healthy balance with other emotions, or we fail to recognize the triggers, that anger can take control over us and be harmful rather than helpful.
Learning to express your emotions in words as you control the physical side of anger can help you to communicate with others in a way that encourages proactive change to the situation, rather than pushes them further away.
Our Jupiter/Palm Beach Gardens or Park City therapists and counselors offer both in-person and online coaching sessions for anger management therapy.
