Should I Get Help? And What If I Don’t Get Help With My Anger Issues?
If you’re like most men, you’ve been taught to hide your emotional concerns. But hiding problems with anger only makes them worse and can lead to other serious problems.
Although difficulties with anger can create a lot of problems, these difficulties can be remedied. Left unaddressed, however, difficulties managing anger often worsens and can result in damaging, long-term consequences for you, your kids, your marriage, your career, and your future. So, if you’re reluctant to get help with your anger for yourself, consider doing it for the well-being of your kids or the people close to you.
Getting help is a sign of strength
For many men, one of the biggest obstacles to seeing an anger management therapist is the concern that if others — like coworkers — found out, something bad will happen or they’ll lose respect. Don’t let these fears impact your family, your relationship with your partner, or your future success. Muster the courage to ask for the help you need.
Research shows, finding a anger management therapist who you’re comfortable with — and one who understands men — is critical for psychotherapy or anger management to be effective for you. But it’s not easy to find an experienced therapist who’s skilled at working with men. I’ve trained thousands of health professionals nationwide in how to best help men, and have helped men in individual counseling and psychotherapy for over 20 years. I can help you to better manage your anger.
