Anger Management

For every minute you are angry, you lost sixty seconds of happiness ~ Ralph Waldo Emerson

Did you know that it is okay to feel angry? Anger is an emotion that is necessary – it helps set boundaries when you feel that you may have been deceived, insulted or when someone oversteps your boundaries. Anger becomes problematic however, when we are unable to control it and consequently it becomes a habitual way of living. This can be a major problem, which if not resolved can lead to physical, mental and emotional health problems.

Am I angry?

  • Do you show inward aggression, which may include thinking you are a bad person, cutting yourself off from the world, causing yourself harm?
  • Do you show outward aggression in the form of violence toward others, shouting at others, exhibiting threatening behaviour towards others?
  • Do you show passive or non-violent aggression to include sarcasm, avoiding conversations with people?

This list is not exhaustive and there are other ways in which your anger maybe manifesting itself, which affects you and people around you adversely. The key is to find out what the trigger is and then to deal with it in a calm manner which is all possible with Cognitive Behavioural Hypnotherapy. When you are calm there is no space for anger.

Why am I angry?

It could also be a learned behaviour from what you may have seen as a child growing up or it could be a traumatic event, which has conditioned your response in situations. At times, feeling like you have not been listened to or understood can also be a trigger for anger.

Similarly, when one is already under stress, it can induce the flight or flight response, leading to over-heightened responses in the form of anger.

How can Shaanti Wellness help me?

In the therapy room, we learn about your triggers for anger and techniques to better manage anger. We begin by showing you techniques customised to you. These help calm your body and mind so that situations where you may otherwise display emotions of anger, leave you being able to respond differently. Studies have shown that use of these techniques enables better processing of information from the stimulus where it is more readily accepted and as a result, we are able to respond appropriately. The stimulus could be an individual such as a spouse, a manager at work or the person who cut you up in traffic. Anchoring techniques may also be used  and may be combined with skilled relaxation, giving you alternative ways to respond.

Reviews

I wasn’t aware of hypnotherapy before Amit introduced me to it, with only tangentially hearing about it through movies/ TV shows. I found it very calming, and not like what’s been portrayed on TV. It’s helped me centre myself and focus on cultivating more patience in situations where I would ordinarily have been short or curt. Amit has a very calming voice!

How long can I expect it to take?

We usually suggest 3 to 6 sessions depending on the progress you make following the sessions. We can get a gauge of this at the beginning of each session to ensure we are keeping to key milestones in your journey to progress. Very often, after just the first two sessions, clients may notice a marked improvement in their ability to manage anger. For others, anger has been a long standing part of their day-to-day life and therapy may take slightly longer.
