Anger Exploration

Anger management has its place, but from my own experiences I have found a deeper process of exploration and acceptance uncovering the historical experiences that create triggers.

 

I subscribe to the theory that anger is a secondary emotion. It may feel all-encompassing and out of control but it is the outward expression of deeper and more complex emotions such as sadness, fear and frustration.

 

Anger may be a part of yourself that you don’t like, that you are afraid of, maybe that other people in your life are afraid of. But the fear of the unknown, the fear of what might happen if that box is opened can be greater than what is actually inside. Anger needs exploration in and we will create a safe space in which to do this - not simply pushing down and hiding away - to truly overcome it.

 

You may find it interesting to hear more about this in a video I made with the health and wellbeing events organisation Roots of Life.
