It is often said that anger is a secondary emotion; that there is more than the behavior that is seen at the surface. Through a client's story is where the root of the emotion exists. With proper guidance and support it is possible to gain insight into triggers, warning signs and learn alternative safe coping skills. Individuals deserve the confidence in knowing that you are in charge of your emotions and responses to them. Increased awareness and a plan of action can be key in managing emotional reactions out of anger. There is also room for growth in exploring the roots of persistent anger. Whether it be learned behavior, or unmet emotional needs from the past, you can thrive.
