Managing Anger with Tim Pike counselling in Brighton

Anger is a normal and healthy human emotion. It is important to deal with it in a positive way. Uncontrolled anger can take a toll on both health and relationships, self-worth and achievements.

Two approaches

There are two approaches here with managing angry feelings successfully and both can be used together. The first is to vent and off load known anger in a safe and confidential space. Also there would be locating any hidden past anger from perhaps seemingly non-angry situations which somehow got beneath the skin and have remained.

Hidden Feelings

There may well be some other hidden feelings beneath the anger that the anger itself is sort of needed to mask. These could be vulnerable or painful feelings. Getting to any hidden deeper feelings could significantly change the apparent 'need' to feel angry and leave you feeling free-er and lighter. Having the courage to come in and talk face to face could be the first step towards easing frustrations, sulks and explosions leading to more enjoyment and potentially closer relationships with others in your life.


The second approach would be using cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT). I can help you come to recognise the earliest signs you are about to become angry and give you tools, tailored to you, so you can be in control of your strong emotions by keeping the feeling to a manageable level.


Through our frank and honest discussion, based on trust, we can together work out the situations, the earlier vulnerable feelings, as well as the initial physical sensations, that will give you seconds, or fractions of a second, to choose from safer options other than acting the anger out in destructive and regrettable ways.


Ten sessions may be sufficient for you to feel in control enough of your feelings and, therefore, your actions and behaviour, to feel a new self confidence and new ability to manage yourself in awkward and difficult situations.
