The New Hope MHCS
If you feel that anger is getting the best of you and it has grown so much that it has begun the slow but sure process of consuming your life, you need to take action before it takes over and ruins your life. This is what anger management is all about.
Anger is a natural, emotional response to undesirable events. Anger is normal. Everyone gets angry. However, this does not mean that it is completely acceptable to let your anger reach heights that will push you to hurt those around you, most especially your family and friends.
Unfortunately, we are only able to identify the damage that has been done after a person has allowed his/her triggers to make things go awry with his/her handling of anger. To paraphrase, the damage has been done – and if we know that anger is the culprit, why let it have its way with you.
If you are feeling any of these symptoms then it is time to get some help!!
Anger management at The New Hope Mental Health Counseling Services is all about recovery. We love the idea of making a permanent impact on people’s lives.
Recovery from anger equates to rebalancing the emotions and adjusting the behavior and helping you understand the relationship of your emotions with what you do in the real world. We help create a controlled platform where you can process and release pent-up and often destructive emotions.
In the process of releasing these emotions, we create the conditions wherein you can begin to recover and heal from the anger. Anger harms not just the people around you, but also you, most especially. There is no truth that the constant and uncontrolled expression of anger is healthy. The truth is the opposite of this.
We will also help you go through the various emotions and responses that you have to events that trigger the anger. Some human responses are constructive, while those that are triggered by adverse events and emotions may have transformed into being destructive. Identifying the destructive responses is key to making permanent changes to a person’s behavior.
Awareness is the first step, and change is the outcome that is desirable to all parties. Another dimension of anger management is gaining insight as to how past and present events shape our responses to people and the environment in general.
In many cases, these responses are actually defense mechanisms, and part of the therapy would be to understand these defense mechanisms and if they may be rooted in something that is more concerning, such as anxiety, depression, and other possible disorders.
Clients will receive a psychosocial evaluation and a certificate of completion to deliver to their lawyer, job, school, etc.
We have a strong professional network that is available to participate in the coordination of your care; from medication therapy to parenting classes, anger management, family conflicts, romantic relationship stress, and transitional coaching.
