What is Anger?
Anger is often considered a secondary emotion, meaning that, it typically arises as a reaction to a primary emotion or underlying feeling. It acts as a protective emotional response that shields us from experiencing or confronting deeper, more vulnerable emotions.
In this context, your anger serves as a defense mechanism, a way to mask or cope with the primary emotions that you may find uncomfortable, threatening, or difficult to express.
Some common primary emotions that can lead to the emergence of anger as a secondary emotion include:
Fear - Hurt or Pain - Frustration - Injustice or Unfairness - Grief
Redefining Anger. By identifying and addressing the primary emotions that underlie anger, you can develop healthier coping mechanisms and more constructive ways of expressing yourself. Our therapists work with you to explore the underlying feelings, helping you manage and resolve the root causes of your anger more constructively and learn new ways of expressing yourself.
This work in therapy can be a transformational experience in your life.
Symptoms of Anger
Why am I angry all the time? Why am I angry at everyone?
