How can Problem Anger be helped by Counselling?

Counselling can help you get a clear understanding about yourself, your problems and your feelings. It can help you discover different ways of thinking, feeling and behaving. Talking to a counsellor may help you to manage angry feelings which otherwise may lead to:

  • depression or anxiety

  • sleep problems

  • alcohol or drug addictions

  • eating disorders

  • compulsive behaviour e.g. excessive cleaning, overworking

  • self-harm.

It might also affect your:

  • digestion – contributing to the development of heartburn, ulcers, colitis, gastritis or irritable bowel syndrome

  • heart and circulatory system

  • high blood pressure
