Anger Management Therapy in the Charlotte Area

Therapy Based in Matthews, North Carolina

Anger is an emotional state that is a normal and healthy component of how human beings process and express their emotions. However, when anger is left unmanaged, it can flare up or spiral out of control.

If you or a loved one struggles with chronic or explosive anger, you might benefit from getting in touch with an anger management therapist who can give you the tools to respond to various triggers of anger and alleviate or prevent some of the costly internal and external consequences that can be aroused by this emotion.

Based in Matthews, Charlotte Therapy Center services the local areas throughout Charlotte, Matthews, Mint Hill, Concord, and Ballantyne. Could you benefit from anger management therapy? Contact us today to learn more about your options.

Do I Need Anger Management Therapy?

We all know anger—the emotion that rallies us to fight or defend ourselves in response to a threat. In many ways, anger is instinctual and natural. However, there are cases when it may also get out of hand.

At its worst, anger can cause serious social, emotional, and even physical harm to the individual expressing the emotion or to others. A person may be a candidate for anger management counseling if they:

  • Have difficulty expressing emotions
  • Struggle to calm feelings of anger
  • React quickly and violently to minor or mild irritations
  • Express aggression or violence after consuming alcohol
  • Break objects or use violence to feel a sense of relief
  • Frequently repeat similar arguments with friends, colleagues, or family
  • Feel frustrated with their actions immediately following an argument

A person with anger management problems may also express emotional symptoms of depression, anxiety, paranoia, frustration, insomnia, or social isolation. Over time, this can be very debilitating for an individual in their work or their social life, and it can negatively affect their emotional and physical wellbeing.

Why Should I Seek Anger Management Counseling?

Individuals with anger management problems often go months, years, or an entire lifetime without seeking help. Unfortunately, many do not receive the care they need before serious consequences arise, ranging from instances of emotional or physical abuse to job loss, diminished health, or even incarceration.

Anger management therapy offers several significant benefits. While it may take weeks or months of anger management therapy to acquire healthy habits for dealing with anger symptoms—and while it may take just as long to overcome bad habits and triggers—the benefits of counseling can mean significant lifestyle changes that show promise of lifetime progress.
