I really don't like the words "anger management" as I think angry feelings have a lot to say to us. We need to acknowledge our anger but that doesn't mean we need to express it in an explosive way. Denying our anger is not healthy and leads to anxiety, depression, and even explosions of anger. Anger is like a wall and behind it are other feelings, often of sadness and hurt. And anger leads to walls which keep us isolated from others.

Have you been told how to deal with your anger with little or no help? Do you find most anger management strategies relatively easy to understand but quite difficult to put into practice? If so, you are not alone. There is a reason for this and it is not because you are not trying hard enough. Anger is a very important and powerful emotion that must be addressed in a deeply emotional way and not just through our heads, knowledge or understanding. This requires the expertise of a therapist who is comfortable and skilled in working with anger.
