CBT for anger management

Anger, though a natural emotion, may express itself in undesirable ways. Anger and high adrenaline triggers physiological reactions such as raised heartbeat, higher temperature and palpitations. Mounting anger can cause us to behave aggressively and inappropriately which can negatively impact our relationships, both personal and professional. We cannot control anger-provoking situations, but we can manage our attitudes to them. Anger management with CBT can help with all anger issues from mild irritation to explosive rage. Anger management CBT sessions can help you to understand the causes of anger and help to set it in context. A CBT therapist would work with you to manage your anger levels and to minimise angry confrontation or self-harm.
