When Anxiety Triggers Anger.

That feeling of hot, prickly anger that overwhelms you. Clenched teeth and nails digging into your palms. Anxiety can often trigger debilitating anger.

It may be triggered by that insensitive joke.
Or remembering how badly you were treated.
Or maybe by frustration with yourself.

Anxiety gives you that sense of being out of control of yourself and your emotions. When that loss of control overflows, anger is the result. After the anger has passed, a sense of guilt and shame remains.
Eliminating your anxiety is the most important part of stopping anxiety induced anger. Whilst you’re working on this, these 3 points will help:

  1. Notice your triggers. What situations or people provoke your anger? Reduce these situations whilst you work on things.
  2. Distraction is useful when you start to feel the anger rising. Change the subject, move around, distract your thoughts.
  3. Have a cut-off point. When you feel anger starting to bubble, decide on your cut off point. Grade your anger on a scale of 1 to 10 and remove yourself from a situation at around number 3.

There are lots of ways to get help with anxiety. Ask your GP to put you on the waiting list for CBT (cognitive behavioural therapy). Ask around for a recommendation or look online for somebody privately (www.BABCP.co.uk). You could also try some of the CBT based self-help books. Don’t give up, there are effective solutions that will banish your anxiety.

Don’t just take my word for it...

It’s great to have a leading psychologist such as Wendy in the Manchester area, outside of her Harley Street practice. After publicly raising awareness of mental health issues and myself recovering from depression, I know how immensely life-changing expert intervention can be.

Wendy is great at what she does; she made me feel at ease immediately and really helped me work through some issues.

Tara Costello

It’s funny but from the minute I met her I felt so relaxed and she was so easy to talk to. Thank you!

Stevie Brown

Wendy isn’t only really good at what she does, she’s also really easy to talk to.

I want to thank you Wendy from the bottom of my heart for guiding me through what must have been the most difficult time of my life.

I was told she was the best and they were right.

Although I consider myself a confident person, I was really nervous when I met Wendy for the first time. I had only emailed her before so it was really nerve wracking walking up the stairs to her office. I can honestly say it’s one of the best things I have ever done. Wendy is really normal, no in fact she isn’t normal as she is unfailingly bright and smiley even when she has to listen to me moan on about how awful my life was. It feels like having a chat with somebody who just gets you and you can trust with things you have never trusted anybody else with before. The magic bit comes when things you have talked about just pop up into your head and you start to do things differently. Wendy once joked about not having a magic wand, but I think she has.

Paul Hendry

I came to Wendy with a set of problems I have never been able to fully explain to anyone, which included grief, many family issues and alcohol problems. Wendy truly has an active listening style and absorbs everything you are saying, whilst not making you feel analysed, it is an incredible skill. She astounded me at how she got to the crux of the issues so fast. So much so that we both agreed I only needed one session with her, obviously this may not be the case with everyone but I would confidently recommend her to anyone, regardless of your problems. There was no awkwardness or even clock watching, she is wonderful at what she does, take the plunge and make an appointment, you will not regret it. Life is a direction not a destination and she will get you on the path again.
