Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, Hypnotherapy and Counseling For Anger and Anger Management.
Everyone can get angry, we can all get upset and react irrationally but it’s important to learn how to deal with these situations so we can be in control of our emotions. Many people express anger by shouting, lashing out or even become violent. The key to managing anger is:
Anger is a natural feeling and a very powerful emotion. Anger can be experienced when you feel frustrated, hurt or rejected. if you allow anger to take over, it can affect your work, family life and your overall wellbeing.
With the careful treatment you will receive, you will be helped to recognise the triggers of your anger and equally learn how to manage your responses. This will be achieved using the empathic skills of cognitive behavioural therapy. If required or requested, the effective therapeutic interventions of hypnotherapy and counseling can also be used to bring about change and help you release yourself from your feelings of anger and frustration.
As with the majority of emotional issues, it is not an event or a situation that causes you to feel angry but it is your negative thought patterns towards the event itself that makes you feel angry.
Activating Event: You get questioned on something you have or haven't done.
Thinking and Beliefs: Why is she/he asking me like that. Don't they trust me
or something. I hate getting spoken to like I was a child. It just annoys me so
much. he/she makes me feel so stupid.
Emotion Or Negative Behaviour: Feelings of frustration that you believe that
you are getting spoken down to. Because you believe this, you react in a
defensive way by getting angry.
The above is a simple example and may not have any bearing on your own circumstances but it will give you an idea how your thoughts can affect how you feel and behave.
It is not an event itself that causes you to get angry but it will be your thoughts and beliefs which you attach to the situation that causes the anger response. Because the beliefs are so strong, no amount of reasoning will help you to change the way you feel.
With the majority of negative thoughts and behaviour, there will be no logic or evidence or very little evidence to support your current thinking which encourages you to get angry and frustrated the way you do, only the beliefs you hold about a situation or event. This is where the skills of cognitive behavioural therapy become very effective. CBT applied at the Life Change Wellbeing Clinic helps you effectively to challenge your thoughts and beliefs, to look for any evidence which supports the negative thought, re-label what the event means to you and then help you to create a more alternative and realistic outlook.
With cognitive behavioural therapy for anger, it is not just a matter of creating a positive thought and all will be ok. You will be helped to create new thought patterns which are realistic and functional which will help you to behave in a more positive way.
Cognitive behavioural therapy for anger works on automatic thoughts and core beliefs that you have
about yourself, others or the general world around you. Your negative thoughts
fuel the core beliefs you have about yourself. In the above example, 'they don't trust me' and the core belief, 'I look stupid' will fuel your anger emotion and you will go into defensive mode and react in a negative, angry way.
Working together, you will be helped to break your thought processes down into smaller components. When the problem is broken into smaller components it becomes far easier to manage. Additionally, by challenging the thoughts and beliefs in this way, by breaking them down, you may come to the realisation that there isn't actually a problem or the problem is no way as big as you thought it was.
When it comes to treating anger issues, therapy is usually the most effective option. That’s because anger therapy treats more than just the symptoms of the problem, it treats the thoughts and meanings behind your problem.
