Anger Management

Find out more about anger issues and how to deal with them:

What Does Anger Issues Mean

Anger issues manifest when you have trouble controlling your anger, its frequency, intensity, or expression. You lose control over your emotions and rationale and end up saying or doing things that you end up regretting later. You may even end up indulging in verbal and/or physical abuse and harming yourself or the people and objects around you. People with anger issues often find it difficult to suppress their anger once it starts, even if they wish to. Sometimes, they may not even realise it is going too far.

What is the Cause of Anger Issues

Depression, OCD, neurodivergence, personality disorders, and bipolar disorder are some of the mental disorders that are accompanied by anger issues. However, continued physical or mental stress, grief, chronic illnesses, and trauma are some external causes that can give rise to anger issues too. Any stimuli that result in your continued inability to regulate your anger can be a cause.

What are the Symptoms of Anger Issues

Extreme anger is often accompanied by a slew of physical and mental symptoms. On one side, you will notice an increased heart rate and blood pressure with the ends of your appendages turning red and warm due to the increased blood flow. A tingling sensation and tension in the muscles may also be felt. Extreme stress, frustration, irritability, an overwhelming feeling of having no control over yourself or anything, and resulting anxiety are the common psychological symptoms. After your anger subsides, guilt and regret take their place.

How Does Anger Management Help

Anger can be easily managed through counselling. If there is an underlying cause for your anger issues, it is best to deal with them while parallelly pursuing techniques to manage your anger. Methods to deal with the overall dysregulation of your emotions will help regulate your anger too.

Benefits of Seeing a Psychologist

A psychologist can help you with anger management in the following ways:

Professional-Grade Treatment

A psychologist is qualified to recognise the eight symptoms and prescribe suitable measures to help deal with them in the healthiest manner possible. With professional help, it becomes much easier to deal with your issues.

Third-Person Perspective

Psychologists are trained thoroughly to ensure that their personal experiences, opinions, and feelings do not cloud their judgement when treating someone. Hence, they are better equipped to understand and resolve your condition.

Complete Confidentiality

Due to the default doctor-patient privilege that applies to any interactions between a doctor, including psychologists, and their patients, you can be assured that what you discuss will stay between you and your therapist. This ensures greater faith in your psychologist.

Comprehensive Care

Psychologists are well-versed in a lot of treatment methods and can suggest the most suitable one for your situation. They will assess your personality, abilities, experiences, triggers, and every involved factor to ensure the maximum effectiveness of the treatment.

Healthier Coping Mechanisms

It is common to observe people develop unhealthy coping habits in an attempt to bring their anger under control. This could be detrimental to them as well as others. A psychologist can help you develop healthy mechanisms to channel your anger.

Zero Judgement

The biggest fear of any person suffering from any mental issue is that of being judged by people due to the stigma surrounding mental health. However, a psychologist is duty-bound to listen to you without any judgement and help you overcome your issues.
