Anger

Anger is a fascinating human emotion. At its zenith it is uncontrollable and dangerous, impacting on those around us. It can also manifest as repressed anger leading to depression.

I believe that anger is a normal healthy emotion – that it doesn't just magically arise out of nowhere, but can be explored as a pointer to better understand our place in the world and help us name our frustrations hopes and fears.

The neuroscience of anger is being understood more and more and it very self-empowering to begin to understand the basic chemical changes which trigger our 'fight/flight/freeze' responses to events and situations. From this we can then begin to explore our own anger signatures and learn ways to express ourselves better and get our needs met without exploding, privately seething or sulking.
