Anger Management Counselling & Classes

Is your Anger out of control?

When anger becomes the predominant emotion in interactions with others, it has significant potential to become dysfunctional anger.

Many people have trouble processing, coping with, expressing,
and managing their anger. This in turn negatively effects their capacity to form and/or maintain friendships, deeper relationships, and excel in their employment.

When people experience anger too intensely for too long there are further consequences: negative emotions (e.g., sadness, fear), physical and verbal aggression, alcohol and drug use aggression, intentional and unintentional self-injury, and damaged relationships.

It's important to recognise that there are different levels of anger.  These scales may range from annoyed to furious.  Interestingly, most people fail to understand that anger generally does not simply come forth from nowhere.   

Anger follows a cycle.  The cycle is listed herewith.

1. Triggering Event
2. Negative Thoughts
3. Emotional Response

4. Physical Symptoms

5. Behavioural Response


Learning how to break the cycle and understanding the 'ABC' of anger is fundamental is managing anger. 

Here at Lifeforce Hypnotherapy and Counselling we work with individuals and groups teaching skills for coping with the underlying factors igniting your anger.

Understanding Anger

It's Natural

Anger is an emotional response to
frustration or stress; a way to protect
ourselves from boundary violations.  Anger has two faces, it can productive and destructive.

It can be Valuable

Anger like all emotions, 
tries to give us information and alerts
us to injustice/ unfair treatment.  Anger is an EXTREME emotion.

It's Evolutionary

Anger is present early in human
development, designed to keep us safe
and surviving. Anger is part of our human software.

When anger becomes a problem


When your anger is habitual

This is where your anger becomes the only response you have in all situations. You start to live in a cycle of anger as your constant partner. Those you love may find you angry and hostile at all times.


When your anger becomes a perspective

This is where your anger becomes your point of view on most things in life. You're holding so much anger that being angry seems comfortable and normal.


When your anger is instrumental

When anger is instrumental it becomes a tool for manipulating people to obtain a certain outcome.

Instrumental anger is often threatening and based on intimidation.

The Downside of NOT managing your Anger

When people experience anger too intensely for too long there are further
consequences: negative emotions (e.g., sadness, fear), physical and verbal
aggression, alcohol and drug use, intentional and unintentional self-injury, and damaged relationships.


When people cannot tolerate angry emotions, they tend to:


 Act out their anger inappropriately.

 They find it difficult to control and are hurtful or abusive to themselves and

Often, they act against their own best interests.

Bypassing anger can have four ill effects: (1) developing psychosomatic
symptoms (2) projecting anger outward onto others (3) acting out hostile,
negative behaviours (4) turning the anger against oneself.
