Anger can be both useful and destructive, it can motivate or it can destroy. Anger can negatively effect your health and welfare. If your anger is destroying your happiness and your relationships it is time to learn new coping tools. Often times beliefs and expectations can lead to rage and anger. I will help you learn about the belief systems that are not serving you well and coach you towards new belief systems. So often our desire for perfection or fairness lead to high levels of frustration. Learning to tolerate and detach can be tools toward serenity and peace. Forgiveness is not for the other person. It is for you. Learn how to channel your anger towards health and happiness.

Anger as an experience and a behavior can have several causes which need to be assessed before deciding on which approach would work best. While generally caused by frustration, the reactions an individual exhibits can be the result of deep-seated emotional problems including trauma, or a learned reaction which seems out of the individual's control to deal with. Neurophysiological problems can sometimes exhibit as a loss of temper. Evaluation by a counselor can be very helpful when anger is a problem to determine if anger management or another form of help would be the best approach. Mental strategies and even relaxation exercises may be a part of anger management approaches.
