Anger is most often thought of as an active explosive or dominating force but anger can also be exist in a quieter and more passive form. If not expressed anger can be turned in on ourselves or leak out in other areas of our lives and cause harm.
Anger often arises in response to experiences of loss, hurt, betrayal or injustice. Although it is often thought of negatively, it can be a helpful feeling, showing us the line between what we can and cannot accept. Some people act out their anger whilst others keep their anger inside and may not even be aware of it although it may show itself in other ways such as depression or low self-esteem.
Therapy can help you explore your relationship with anger and how you express it. It can help you become aware of what triggers your anger and help you find ways of expressing your anger in a way that is not harmful to yourself or others.
