Are you or someone you know having problems managing their anger?
Colin was facing a big problem – his anger was getting the better of him. He couldn’t control his outbursts, and it was having a massive impact on his work and home life.
In work, he would storm out of meetings and shout at the employees, especially if they didn’t carry out his orders. He wasn’t aware of the impact his foul moods were having until it was brought up at his review. Anger management was suggested, but Colin didn’t believe it was bad enough to need them.
At home, he found the children annoying and his wife argumentative. Until one day he lashed out at his wife and smashed his fist against the doorframe. The pain brought him out of the angry mood immediately, and he realised, at last, he could have hurt someone.
Next step Anger Management classes
Not knowing what to do next, his GP suggested meditation and CBT classes, but he couldn’t get into it, especially the groups, so a friend suggested hypnotherapy.
Although sceptical, Colin knew he needed to do something so went along. When going through how the brain works, Colin realised his anger outbursts were signs of frustration and lack of control in his life. So many people needed him to be the best he could be, but he felt he was letting everyone down.
Understanding how the brain brings us back in control and able to manage the frustration and anger outbursts made a lot of sense.
He started sessions and practised the tools given. Each week improved as he listened to his MP3. His sleep improved, and he gained a real insight into where he needed to respond differently. He’d given up on exercise years ago and was relying on drinking alcohol to relax, so he ditched that and bought himself an exercise bike.
By the end of the hypnotherapy, he was feeling much better and able to manage problems as they arose instead of reacting all the time to events as they occurred.

Using Hypnotherapy for Anger Management
We use the powerful natural tools of hypnosis, visualisation and direct suggestion to help you change the way you let daily events affect you. The hypnosis enables you to manage with assertiveness, not aggression, the triggers that cause your reactions of anger. You can visualise how you would prefer to respond to any given situation and allow that to become your reality.
Other tools that can help anger management
We give you tools of NLP, mindfulness and CBT to build confidence and step back from situations before you react. The goal of anger management is to control both the emotional feelings and physiological arousal that anger creates. Recognising anger and learning to express it in the correct way can help individuals handle emergencies and solve problems easier. CBT can help identify where you are, what you’re doing and why your anger gets out of hand.
What is anger?
Anger is a very primal responce to a situation, as someone either feels threatened, or someone close is being threatened. When an individual becomes angry, their heart rate and blood pressure increases as chemicals such as Adrenalin are pumped through their body. The body becomes tense, fists clench, jaws clench, some may slam the door, break plates, punch a cushion.
However, some individuals may not release this tension and suppress their anger. This usually leads to a build up of emotions causing them to ‘explode’ when it all becomes too much.
