Article Body:
Have you ever blown your stack by over-responding to a situation? Maybe
it would be easier to ask if you know someone who hasn’t. Virtually
everyone has said something in anger that they wish they could take back.
After nasty words are spoken or mean actions are taken, they can have a
hurtful or escalating effect on others, and it is too late to un-do their
impact. That is why anger management counseling can be beneficial for
those who have trouble controlling angry responses to irritating
situations. There is no shame attached to seeking anger management
counseling in fact, true shame comes from the failure to admit there is a
problem and trying to take remedial action.

Anger management counseling can be sought for many reasons. In some
cases, a doctor, spouse, or supervisor may recommend it. In other cases,
a person may be able to contain physical and verbal expressions of anger,
but realize that emotionally, his or her rage surpasses what one should
expect in a given situation. At the point of this recognition, a wise
person will consider anger management classes, training, or counsel to
keep their emotions under check and to manage responses in a healthy way.

What Does Anger Management Counseling Involve?

Any type of personal counseling proceeds effectively when the client
admits there is a problem or that others believe he or she has a problem.
In this case, anger management counseling will focus on exploring the
roots of unresolved anger, discovering triggers of current or unexplained
anger, and looking at ways to try and bring anger under reasonable
control. Working with a trained and possibly licensed therapist, a client
will answer many questions about personal history, current conditions,
and future expectations. He may even take one or more psychology tests
that could provide insight to the patient’s mindset.

If anger management counseling warrants, a client may be referred to a
doctor for a medical work-up that could check the person’s hormonal
levels, blood levels, and overall condition to see if health problems
play a role. Perhaps the prescription of a mood elevator, an anti -anxiety
or bi-polar medication, or another type of medicine will have a positive
effect on helping someone manage anger difficulties.

Anger management counseling also may involve the recommendation of self-
help techniques that someone can practice at home or on the job. These
might include keeping a journal and writing about negative feelings,
getting a pet to help reduce irritation and promote a serene home
environment, learning to adjust expectations, and being honest about
disappointment, hurt, or irritation. Even adopting an exercise routine
can help to balance bodily functions and contribute to a greater sense of
well being.

Since each therapist uses different techniques, your sessions may be very
different from those experienced by other clients. Your counselor may
recommend group therapy, for instance, or family therapy if relatives are
impacted by the situation. As you explore various techniques of anger
management counseling, you will soon get a feel for what works and what
doesn’t. For more information before, during, or after your counseling
