Getting Anger Under Control

How to Control Anger

In my work as a counselor and Denver therapist, I know that everyone (yes, everyone) feels angry, sometimes. Let’s face it, life can be frustrating. Work can be maddening, people can be annoying, partners and kids can be irritating, traffic is a daily struggle for many of us, and let’s not even get into the many “state-of-the-world” issues that can send us into a rage. That said, when anger is frequent, and a major player in our lives, it takes a toll.

Feeling angry frequently can impact your health — both physically and mentally. But anger can really create problems in your relationships too. When you are expressing a lot of negativity, hostility or irritation with your partner, kids, friends, and family…. Even random people start to distance themselves from you emotionally.

It goes the other way too: if you have an angry husband or angry wife it can make you start to feel like you’re walking on eggshells. Dealing with anger issues in marriage can be very difficult. Having a partner who is persistently irritated, frustrated, or quick to anger starts to make your relationship feel emotionally unsafe, and leads people to shut down and withdraw

Anger Management Help

“Anger issues” are a common problem for many people, and in many relationships. So today on the Love, Happiness and Success Podcast, I’ve enlisted the support of my colleague Dr. Georgiana S., Ph.D., LMFT, to share her expertise about anger. Dr. Georgiana is, among other things, an Emotional Intelligence Coach, a Marriage Counselor and Couples Therapist, and a Life Coach too. 

She specializes in helping angry people learn how to get to a better place, helps couples communicate and reduce the anger and frustration in their relationships, and I’m so pleased to have her share her “anger advice” with you today too.

  1. I really enjoyed and learned so much from the Anger podcast. The strategies on defusing anger and making sure your partner no longer felt threatened / was heard could have helped me out tremendously in relationships.

    I consider myself to have a very high Emotional IQ however I do poorly when confronted with a hyper-angry partner (eg when anger is disproportionate to the situation). I do listen but I inventory their case / actions vis a vis my case / actions and make a determination on who is right / wrong. I understand that does not defuse the situation nor does it allow for connection. It more often just escalated things with my partner.

    I was surprised because I had no intention on listening to this because I thought it was “How to control your anger” which I don’t personally need but the focus on strategies to handle an angry partner were outstanding.
