We all know what anger is, and we've all felt it: whether as a fleeting annoyance or as full-fledged rage. Anger is a completely normal, usually healthy, human emotion. But when it gets out of control and turns destructive, it can lead to problems—problems at work, in your personal relationships, and in the overall quality of your life. And it can make you feel as though you're at the mercy of an unpredictable and powerful emotion. If you feel that your anger is really out of control, if it is having an impact on your relationships and on important parts of your life, you might consider counseling to learn how to handle it better.

Feelings can sometimes feel out of our control. The key to controlling your anger is that you must first become aware of triggers and develop ways to manage your reactions to them. It sounds simple right? Well it's not! We both know that, but that doesn't mean life will be any less complicated if we don't work together to deal with it. Managing anger will mean utilizing all the tools in your toolbox and developing more!

The inability to control impulses appears to have come to the forefront of today's media attention. Anger is a secondary emotion so the underlying cause needs to be discovered. Once the cause is discovered, then the therapeutic process can begin by initiating the understanding that the individual does have the power of anger control. There are a number of anger management strategies that can be learned, practiced, and successfully mastered.
