Support for anger in Surrey

Why do I get angry?

Anger can be caused by many different things. We may feel upset, sad, low, stressed, tired, hunger or pain. We may also feel undervalued, misunderstood, threatened or out of control.

It can be caused by external factors that are out of our control such as inconsiderate driving or internal factors which are our own thoughts, feelings and beliefs for example: ‘I’m not being heard’.

Anger can be a symptom of depression, especially in men.

Anger symptoms

When we are angry we have negative thoughts and emotions and we may experience physical reactions such as shaking and a racing heart. We may express our anger through negative behaviour like shouting or withdrawing from others. All these factors affect each other and keep the vicious cycle of anger going.

Anger is a learned behaviour that can be changed with the help of a qualified therapist.
