Anger is a normal feeling that everyone experiences. Anger can range from slight annoyance to fits of rage and fury. Some feel anger every day, while others may only encounter feelings of anger when pushed to "the limit" and feel like exploding.
Anger can be caused by both internal and external events, and it affects us both emotionally and physically. Anger often comes with very little notice, and can leave us with exhaustion, depression and regret. To express anger effectively, we need to develop positive stress and anger management skills.
Some people swallow their anger until they explode, while others take out their anger instantly. Neither are effective ways of expressing anger.
Finding an effective way to handle stress and anger is not always easy and what works for one person doesn't necessarily work for another. We want to help you explore your ways to express your feelings and needs in a constructive and assertive way.
Stress is the emotional and physical strain caused by our response to pressure from the outside world. Common stress reactions include tension, irritability, inability to concentrate, and a variety of physical symptoms such as headache and a fast heartbeat.
It is impossible to live without some stress. And most of us wouldn't want to, because it gives life some spice and excitement. But if stress gets out of control, it may harm your health, your relationships, and your enjoyment of life.
ABOUT MANAGING ANGER AND STRESS
The way you choose to deal with stress and anger can negatively or positively affect your life. If you find yourself struggling to find ways to cope and deal with anger, it may be a good idea to seek professional help. We aim to help you deal with anger and stress constructively.
It is important to understand what it is that is driving your anger, so we explore the sources as well as the impact your anger has on yourself and others.
We explore practical tools, based on your real life situation, and help you to safely express anger in situations where you previously either "lost it" or "swallowed it". Anger management will increase your awareness of what triggers your anger and stress.
With increased self-awareness and by incorporating tools and skills in your everyday life you will be in greater control of your own behaviour and ways of thinking. This, in turn can improve your relationships, work-performance and general well-being. The bottom line is, only you are in charge of how you lead your life.
