After discovering the causes of your anger, you will learn to identify the thoughts or other triggers that start it spiraling out of control.
I will teach you how to be assertive in your life, rather than aggressive. Cognitive Behavioral approaches are the most optimal types of therapy due to providing the longest lasting results. With this method, you are given control over your recovery with self-perspective and the world in general.
One technique involves deep breathing and relaxation. You will work on removing yourself from the negative situation and begin deep breathing exercises to calm down before reentering the situation. I will encourage you to practice the deep breathing before addressing an anger-provoking situation.
