Anger, is generally because of the rigid expectations people have about how people should behave. Anger can present itself in relationships, between family members and in the workplace. In some cases, people direct their anger at themselves for failing to live up to their own standards that they have set for themselves.
Often unhealthy coping strategies can have become habitual in an effort to suppress these feelings. Such behaviours can include high alcohol consumption and drug taking which exacerbate the problem. Through CBT people can learn effective strategies to let go of the beliefs which maintain their anger. Anger can also be mixed with other difficult emotions such as Hurt or Shame and a combination of CBT and Compassion Focused approaches can help make significant changes in your thoughts and behaviours.
