Anger is an emotion that we all experience, though each of us expresses our anger in different ways. Some may explode, and become aggressive or lash out at others, while others, may repress or smother their anger as they feel unsafe to express this. Anger is often seen as a negative emotion, one we should not feel or express. However, anger is a healthy and natural emotion to feel, the trick is to find a safe, healthy way to express this. It is about finding how you can become assertive, rather than aggressive or repressive.
How we can help
Shore Therapy has a number of different ways to encourage and develop strong, healthy ways to express our anger. We offer individual psychotherapy sessions where you will work with your chosen therapist to uncover and discover the personal, historical or familial dynamics that have encouraged your anger issues. We also provide a Dialectical Behavioural Therapy (DBT) skills group with an emphasis on anger management. It is up to you whether you decide that individual psychotherapy or the DBT skills group is your treatment preference, but it is highly recommended by those at Shore Therapy that the combination of the individual therapy and the group work is the best way to develop new ways to manage your anger.
