Control Anger

THE VOLCANO OF EMOTIONS

Anger is a completely normal, usually healthy, human emotion. Anger is a natural, adaptive response to threats; it inspires powerful, often aggressive, feelings and behaviors, which allow us to fight and to defend ourselves when we are attacked. A certain amount of anger  is necessary to our survival. But when it gets out of control and turns destructive, it can lead to problems at work, in personal relationships, and in the overall quality of life. It can make you feel as though you're at the mercy of an unpredictable and powerful emotion.

Anger is an emotional state that varies in intensity from mild irritation to intense fury and rage. Like other emotions, it is accompanied by physiological and biological changes; when you get angry, your heart rate and blood pressure go up, as do the levels of your energy hormones, adrenaline, and noradrenaline. Anger can be caused by both external and internal events. You could be angry at a specific person (such as a coworker or supervisor), or event (a traffic jam, a canceled flight), or your anger could be caused by worrying or brooding about your personal problems. People who are easily angered generally have what some psychologists call a low tolerance for frustration. They can't take things in stride, and are infuriated if the situation seems somehow unjust: for example, being corrected for a minor mistake. Easily angered people don't always curse and throw things; sometimes they withdraw socially, sulk, or get physically ill.

If you have a problem with anger, you probably already know it. If you’ve found yourself acting in ways that seem out of control and frightening, you may want to get help to find better ways to deal with this emotion.

Q: How Does Hypnotherapy Help?

A: People use a variety of both conscious and subconscious processes to deal with their angry feelings. The three main approaches are:

  • expressing,
  • suppressing, and
  • calming

Hypnotherapy helps you learn how to express your angry feelings in an assertive, not aggressive, manner and to make clear what your needs are, and how to get them met, without hurting others. Hypnosis helps you calm down inside and control your outward behavior.

Your hypnosis session may incorporate relaxation, visualization, and positive affirmations.

You will begin to notice some improvements with the first session.   We provide an audio CD recording of the hypnosis session that you can continue to use daily for a period of 28-32 days to accomplish the maximum benefits.   

Q: How Many Visits Will I Need?

A: You will return at least once more in approximately 10-14 days. We will review your progress and incorporate additional suggestions into a new hypnosis session to facilitate continued progress. Subsequent sessions are determined by the client and the Hypnotherapist based on the clients needs and progress. The Hypnotherapist can also teach the individual appropriate “quick fix”, self-hypnosis, stress and tension relievers to use during challenging or vulnerable times of crisis or increased agitation. You will also find that you become more aware of the signs and symptoms of the onset of your anger. As you master the techniques you will increase your ability to utilize them at any time and in any situation. 

If you are unable to come into one of our offices, for personal sessions, we can discuss your issues and needs over the telephone and then record an individually designed CD for you.
