Anger is considered to be a normal, yet powerful emotion. It can be constructive but it can often be uncontrollable and can therefore be destructive. There are varying degrees of anger that can range from mild irritation to intense fury and rage.
Anger can affect the physical well-being of a person in that it can lead to an increased heart rate, high blood pressure leading to possible heart disease, cancer and strokes. It can lead to problems at work, in personal relationships (anger is more likely to have a negative effect on relationships than any other emotion), and life in general.
If you feel that your anger is really out of control, if it is having an impact on your relationships and on important parts of your life, New-Horizon Counselling can help you to learn how to handle it better.
