Hypnosis and Anger Management

Learn to manage your anger.

We all have anger. It’s a natural part of life. However, what do we do when our anger becomes more than we can manage? Today in Hypnotic News we’re going to talk about hypnosis for anger management. What you can do and how hypnosis can help.

Hulk Smash

Anger is normal. It comes from feelings of frustration and even fear (ADD LINK). Or from the sensation of being deceived or attacked. For most people, this emotion passes quickly. For others, however, it can quickly become difficult to control and impact their quality of life.

When we fail to manage our anger effectively we develop both mental and physical health issues. We suffer. It affects our relationships, jobs, and even your self-esteem. But you don’t just have to suffer. We can all do something about it.

Below are five things you should know about anger management and how hypnosis can help.

Know Your Triggers

Anger isn’t something we have just for show. It can be useful at times for survival for example. When you feel stressed (ADD LINK) or threatened you get an adrenaline surge that gets you ready for fight or flight. However, sometimes those instincts are simply not an option in the modern world. Which can make it hard for us to express this anger constructively. This is where the problem begins.

While it’s different for everyone, the potentially damaging forms of anger tend to be the following:

  •  Volatile anger, which leads to anger outbursts that scare loved ones
  •  Judgmental anger, which is steeped in resentment and directed at others
  • Overwhelmed anger, when a person feels as if there is too much to handle
  • Self-inflicted anger, which is directed inwards and can cause mental damage
  • Passive anger, a form that’s often expressed passively and damages relationships
  • Chronic anger, which goes on all the time and can cause physical and mental health problems

Anger itself can be damaging enough. But when we fail to let some steam off the top it gets worse. It can cause heart issues, weakened immune response, lung distress, anxiety, and depression (ADD LINKS). But even knowing all that doesn’t mean that we know how to express it constructively. While the first step may be determining your triggers, you may also have to look at your personal history, upbringing, and background, to see how anger has influenced you throughout your life.

Recognize The NEED For Anger management

Step one is always realizing that you need help. If you cannot see that you need to make a change or that there is a problem, you won’t. Below are just a few examples of signs that might help you realize if you need anger management.

  • You are worried about what you will do when you’re angry
  • If you feel like you have no control over it
  • You feel angry all the time but can’t express it
  • If you argue with loved ones regularly
  • You behave violently toward your partner, friends, family or others
  • Your anger has led you to break a law
  • You break things or damage property on purpose when you are mad
  • You have hurt yourself when angry.

Evaluating Options

There are many ways to do any one thing. Anger management is no different. You can go into a program, go to talk therapy, and even get hypnotized. Or a combination of several of them. Programs are often designed for groups and will give you new coping skills. The therapy you get one on one help to find the root cause of your behavior and likely change it.

Last, but not least is hypnosis. Which continues to gain traction as a popular option for behavior management. This type of therapy for anger management can help you find the cause of your anger so you can start changing those negative patterns of thought.

Hypnosis As Treatment

Hypnosis can help with anger in many ways. The first thing is to find out the underlying cause of your anger. As noted above, past experiences can play a part in anger control problems, as your past shapes your current belief system and behavior. This means that while you may believe something or someone else is causing your problem, it could be stemming from you. Your fears, anxieties, and insecurities (ADD LINKS). Once you get to the root cause, you will be able to work with your hypnotherapist to change this.

A hypnotist will work with you both consciously and unconsciously to effect changes on your negative thoughts and behaviors. This may involve suggestions from your hypnotherapist to control your anger and relaxation techniques. Their aim is to change your reactions to triggers for anger. Instead of becoming overwhelmed you can feel more in control and better able to cope. When you can control your responses more effectively, you can think and react more clearly and appropriately.

Quick Tips

  • Learn to recognize your triggers.
  • Keep a journal of your anger spouts to help you identify these. Notate things said, who was involved and how you responded.
  • Try other relaxation techniques such as visualization, yoga, breathing, and meditation. These can also help you lower your stress which often goes hand in hand with anger.
  • Diet can affect your anger patterns as well. If all else fails see if a sugar addiction (add links) or some other dietary factor could be contributing to your stress. Sugar, caffeine, and other stimulants tend to be the most likely culprits.
  • Eat and sleep well.
  • And exercise.

No matter the cause of your bouts of anger hypnosis or therapy can help. For more information on how hypnosis can help you check out All About Hypnosis and our Services.
