Anger gets such a bad rap! It’s described as negative, unproductive and you are a ‘bad’ person if you revert to anger to solve a problem. This is hog-wash! Anger encompasses everything from a mild irritation to intense rage and it is only when it gets out of control and intensely physical is anger dangerous to you and those around you. Releasing anger is good for you. We all need to ‘blow off steam’ when things build up. Anger is our way to deal with injustice, violation of our rights, protection of our young and loved ones. Anger is an emotion, neither good nor bad.
Anger is wasted energy and is never the answer to a problem. However, bottling up your anger is also not a good idea. When you feel yourself getting angry, try to change your state! What do I mean?

Something that will make you and others laugh. Break the tension, break the moment. Take the opportunity to get another perspective.

Eventually, you will explode in a fit of black anger, spewing over others (usually the wrong people). A better way is to address the cause. TRTP – The Richards Trauma Process is the therapy we recommend.

Financial hardship, stress and prolonged anxiety is feeding this epidenic. Now is the time to ‘Stop the Cycle of Violence!”
Domestic violence is at the moment a buzz word and at the moment a lot of money is being thrown at it. As a society we should be appalled and ashamed of how much of it is going on in our society. What disturbs me about the attention that domestic violence is getting is that …
Trauma, PTSD, Anxiety or Depression are the result of emotional events that have happened in the past, that remain unresolved or “unprocessed” by our Mind. These events start to loop like a video on “auto replay” and can be triggered to start playing by an event, a thought or even a small or a taste. It …
