The experience of having anger is naturally unpleasant, and yet it is alerting us that something is not right for us and needs our attention. When we can understand the message contained in our anger, we can make changes so that the angry feelings will either lessen or disappear.
As psychotherapists our role is to facilitate someone getting to the most helpful understanding of their concerns so that they can make skilful decisions about how to live life. Therapy exists at the point current medical knowledge ends with a view to helping someone live better with “what is”. Sometimes that might mean learning to live with a medical diagnosis and at other times a difficulty for which there is currently no known medical understanding.
