Need help controlling your anger?
Who hasn’t shouted at their computer/telephone/dog/loved ones in the heat of a rage? Then afterwards felt terrible about it.
We have all done it, and it is perfectly natural. Life can be frustrating. But there is a difference between occasionally losing our tempers and being permanently angry. When we are angry for extended periods it is bad for our health, our relationships and our work environment. Anger can be very destructive. It can lead to depression and anxiety as it affects not just yourself, but also those you come in contact with.

What is Anger?
Anger is a natural response to perceived threats, much in the same way as anxiety does. What is different is that our response is to fight rather than flee. Anger fuels us with adrenalin and pushes us to fight back to protect ourselves.
But anger can help us be more assertive to ensure we do not get taken advantage of. It pushes us to set boundaries to ensure our needs are met. Anger at injustice can motivate us to try and change the world for the better.
When you feel angry a number of responses may occur:
- Increased heart rate
- Inability to think clearly
- Excessive Sweating
- Flushing in the face and hands
- Increased blood pressure
How to recognise that anger has become a problem?
Each person has their unique triggers for rage. These can include, frustration, feelings of injustice, misunderstandings, feeling threatened or ‘road rage’. When we feel we lack the power to change things we can react with anger. It can be very disturbing for other people to witness as well as being bad for your blood pressure.
If any of the following apply to you then you know when you need help controlling your anger.
- When your loved ones are frightened of your temper
- When you are so angry you break the law
- When you react violently towards someone
- You feel out of control and break or damage things

How Hypnotherapy can Help
Anger itself is not a bad thing. You don’t want to remove anger from your emotional repertoire – it can be a very useful emotion, occasionally. It is how you react to it that can be the problem. You want to be able to react with assertiveness not aggression.
Hypnotherapy offers you alternative ways of dealing with anger. By finding out what your trigger points are, learning relaxation techniques and self-hypnosis you will help be able to keep calm instead of going into a rage.
Recognise Warning Signs
Take note of when and what makes you lose your temper. That way you can either try to avoid the situation or moderate your reaction.
Letting go of your anger can be very cathartic. This allows you to get on with your life without becoming bitter.
Take a deep breath and count to 10
This gives you time to think about whether your reaction is justified or not. You may well decide that the situation is not work getting worked up about.
