Anger, when expressed well, can get things done, invigorate movement and provoke change. Whilst it’s an emotion that we can also misuse, anger tells us to look at what’s really bothering us and needs to be listened to or changed.
Listening to the meaning in your anger rather than simply reacting can be incredibly empowering and enabling – next time you feel angry perhaps try to take a moment to wonder what it is that you feel in your body…are you scared, anxious, worried, feeling unsafe – once you know then you can act if you need to or not.
Counselling can help you to understand powerful emotions like anger and learn to direct them in a way which empowers rather than simply destroys. If you feel this is something you would like to explore please feel able to contact me.
