Anger Management Counseling: Controlling Emotions
The goal of anger management is to reduce your emotional feelings as well as the physiological arousal that anger spurs. While you can’t change circumstances and people around you, you can change your response to them. Sometimes you just need a little help managing those intense feelings of anger so as to achieve a more peaceful well-being. Counselor James Gibb, MA, LCPC, NCC specializes in anger and anxiety management for teens and adults. He works with many individuals suffering from chronic mental illness, personality disorders, and various anxiety and depression disorders. In addition, he works closely with juvenile offenders. Turn to James Gibb for anger management counseling before it consumes you.
It’s completely normal and healthy to feel anger. The problem occurs when that expression of anger gets out of control and turns destructive. When this happens, it can result in problems throughout every area of your life—from school and work to family and friends. You don’t have to feel like you’re at the mercy of this powerful and unpredictable emotion. Let James Gibb help you understand and harness anger into more productive qualities.
There are many consequences of out-of-control anger. This anger can:
- Harm your physical health. When you’re always operating on high levels of stress, you put yourself at risk of high blood pressure, heart disease, diabetes, weakened immune system and insomnia.
- Hurt your mental health. That’s because high levels of anger take up a lot of mental energy, clouding your judgement and preventing you from concentrating or even enjoying life.
- Damage your career. There is nothing wrong with a little constructive criticism or creative differences here and there, but when you are constantly baiting heated discussions and lashing out at fellow employees and clients, this can cause irreparable damage to business relationships.
- Damage personal relationships. Your anger can cause lasting emotional scars that will alienate you from the ones you love, including your children. It’s hard to trust someone who explodes with anger at the drop of a hat, as well as speak honestly or even just feel comfortable within the same room.
