Anger is a natural emotion for everyone and is generally a response to a threat. It has a range of feeling from mild irritation through to fury.
There is external anger or internal anger. External anger is when something happens outside of our control e.g. a traffic jam, and we have a choice of how we respond. Internal anger is when worry over personal issues, for example something that happened in the past.
However for many people, it isn’t the easiest emotion to express appropriately. You may tend to keep anger bottled up or maybe you express anger in violent outbursts.
Ongoing anger can also affect health, for example causing high blood pressure, ulcers, acid indigestion or insomnia.
If you think that your anger is getting out of control making you do or say things which are inappropriate, then you may need some outside help.
Through using cognitive behavioural therapy, you can learn to recognise signs of anger and to understand what triggers your anger. Very often underlying feelings such as fear, sadness, hurt or depression can contribute to the anger. Through therapy, you can come to respond to anger in a healthy way.

I am so relieved that I have learned some useful therapeutic techniques for my panic attacks. Thank you so much Joanna, you changed my life.
One of the best psychologists in town! I had psychotherapy for years and I couldn’t overcome my passion for food and the bad habit of emotional eating. When I started psychotherapy with Joanna she used psychoeducation and taught me about cognitive and behaviour techniques I could use when I feel stressed and isolated at work. Now I have a better mood and energy.
I visited Joanna last year for a health problem with my stomach, I had clear health exams and my doctor said it caused from work stress. I referred to Joanna and started psychotherapy with health psychology and cognitive behaviour therapy. After six sessions I felt more balanced and I am in my way to have my healthy body back.
As humans, we have to eat in order to fuel our bodies. We also use food as a tool to celebrate, socialise, cope with stress, and reward ourselves. Because food…
