Anger - How do I deal with it?
Let’s look at some of the difficulties that we may have with anger. Often we can pay too much or too little attention to our anger and this can cause us problems.
Emotions can intensify when we put too much emphasis on them. If we concentrate and act on anger too much it becomes stronger and more difficult to manage. Paying too little attention to our anger often leads to different problems. We may loose touch with an important part of ourselves by repressing (cutting off) our anger and feeling nothing, deadening feelings to protect from being hurt.

Have you ever thought about seeking Counselling, but found that you were put of doing so because of some rumours that you had heard?
Here are some myths and misconceptions about Counselling that I will address, which are worth debunking.
“I should be able to manage my own issues”
“Seeking Counselling is a sign of weakness”
“The Counsellor will just sit there in silence”
“The Counsellor will tell me how to 'fix' things”
“Only one type of Counselling works (CBT, psychodynamic etc.)”
“Everyone will know I am seeing a Counsellor”

Do I Need Counselling?
People often look at the idea of Counselling when they are experiencing a particularly difficult time in their lives. For example I often get referrals for clients who are experiencing bereavement or another loss such as divorce or redundancy. Counselling is not just there for the big events in life, it can help when people are feeling burdened by their current life experience. They may be experiencing feelings of anxiety or low mood and not be able to put a finger on why they feel this way. They may just have a feeling of being ‘stuck’. This is where Counselling can be extremely helpful.
