Anger – 5 Things you need to know!

I know I’ve talked many times about anger but it remains one of the most popular issues faced by my clients.

For this reason, I’ve decided to give you a re-boot, re-fresh, whatever you care to call it with my top 5 things you should know about anger. Here goes…

  1. Anger is a physical reaction to a thought or feeling. It is NOT an emotion. When we say we “feel” angry we are feeling the physical effects of anger, such as clenching fists, headache, clenched stomach and a general need to “fight or flight”. The single best way to deal with this reaction (which is the same as the anxiety reaction) is to BREATHE!!!! Oxygen helps to dilute the hormones that our body has created and helps it to return to normal levels. See my post on breathing techniques here
  2. Anger often comes from a lack of control somewhere in our life. We feel that we are unable to change something and this often makes us feel stuck which can lead to an anger reaction. An example may be where we allow a person or situation to really “get to us” (note the wording here, because we have control as you’ll see later). Address areas of your life where you find yourself getting angry – try and write down what’s bugging you and spend some time analysing why you feel the way you do – don’t forget to be really honest!!
  3. As mentioned before, we are ultimately in control of our own anger. Our anger belongs to US because we create it! Blaming others only serves to re-enforce angry outbursts. This is perhaps the only golden rule of anger if we truly wish to manage it. Until we take responsibility for our anger, it will always be something we are at the mercy of. Take control today by accepting responsibility for your own anger.
  4. Get to know your anger – keep an “anger” diary for 7 days and note when you became angry. Make sure you add as much detail as you can such as time, place, who you were with, had you eaten, etc. After 7 days, track back over the listings and see if you can find any patterns. You may also want to look for key situations, times etc. so you can build a picture.
  5. Remember that anger is GOOD when used as a force for good! We only have to think about campaigns like #BeKind #BlackLivesMatter #MeToo to see that anger, when directed, can be a powerful tool for change. Don’t try to chase your anger away, it’s better to acknowledge it and make friends with it. This way it can be your assertive ally rather than your destructive enemy.

#BeKind…to yourself!

Now, more than ever, we need to make sure that we are kind to each other and that we can provide support to one another too.

After many years of being asked, I’ve decided to merge my two areas of expertise – Counselling and Course design to create an online course for those of you who want to learn exactly how I do what I do!

The Course is Accredited by The International Association of Therapists who I am very proud to be working with and my course is also now available on Udemy at a heavily discounted price for a few hours only!

Counselling Skills Accredited Online Course!

During the past few months we have all been through lots of changes. As a counsellor, I have seen big changes in the way I have had to work.

I have also had lots of enquiries from friends and colleagues who have been thinking about their careers and may want to add another string to their bow.

It is for this reason that I have written a counselling course which can be taught and assessed online!

CHECK IT OUT HERE!!!

Not only that, the course will be accredited by an independent international body that specialises in accrediting holistic courses taught online.

The course, entitled “Acquire Develop and Practice Counselling Skills with a Young Adult Specialism” will be based on the first course I took in Counselling. The NCFE Level 3 Diploma. This course helped me to understand the mechanics and challenges of counselling and helped me fall in love with it.

I have added the Young Adult Specialism as this is the area I have seen the highest demand in. Further specialisms will include Mindfulness, Coaching, Personality Types and more.

There are many counselling courses available online, some better than others! Obviously this one is amazing!

This course is delivered via pre-recorded video with exercises and assignments added in. The course will last for 25 weeks. You will get email support from me and one 40 minute zoom session at a point in the course to suit you!

CHECK IT OUT HERE!!!

If that’s not enough, you will also get access to my online course aimed at Young Adults dealing with Anxiety for free! You can use this as a learning tool, a mentoring tool whatever!

I believe that counselling practice properly starts when you begin to use the skills you have learned. That is why the course involves lots of reflection and practice which you can upload for assessment. I also believe that learning should take place in a safe, non-judgemental and supportive setting, which is why I have decided to restrict each accredited learning qualification group to 15.

I will shortly be releasing dates for the beginning of the first group so if you want to register your interest, please do so here

You may want to register your interest quickly to avoid disappointment!

So if you want to learn a new skill and help yourself and others, please get in touch!
