Anger Management Q & A

What is anger management?

When children and adults experience anger regularly or can't control how they express their feelings, anger management training helps restore a healthier relationship with their emotions. 

At Compass Mental Health & Wellness, anger management counseling services take a personalized approach. The professional team helps you identify the underlying cause of your excessive anger, situations that trigger uncontrollable rage, and solutions that keep you grounded and in charge of your emotional response.

Sometimes a court orders people to participate in anger management training. You can also choose anger management counseling to help yourself or your child with anger problems.

What signs indicate problems with anger management?

Persistent, extreme anger characterizes a problem with anger management. Common signs of destructive anger patterns include:

  • Sudden angry outbursts
  • Persistent feelings of frustration
  • Blaming others for your difficulties
  • Relationship struggles
  • Career issues
  • Violent aggression
  • Alcohol or drug abuse

Excessive anger can lead to physical symptoms like prolonged muscle tension, high blood pressure, increased heart rate, and elevated cortisol levels. These symptoms can cause serious health complications over time.
