My approach to anger management is very similar to how I help clients manage stress. Using hypnosis a person can learn to recognise when the anger response is beginning to happen. When you recognise the thoughts and reactions that lead to anger are happening you have a chance to interrupt the process before the anger response actually happens.
It is said that being angry is like drinking poison and expecting someone else to get sick.
The Dalai Lama said “only thing that can destroy the source of my happiness and my peace of mind, is my own anger”. It is so true, no matter what happens around us, whether deliberate or not we only hurt ourselves if we react with anger. Anger dramatically impacts on our ability to think rationally and react appropriately. Invariably anger leads to an over reaction that we regret later.
Using hypnosis I help my clients to retrain their instinctive response to one that is calm and helps the person think clearly even when in a pressure situation.
