Why can’t I control my anger?

Anger is a natural emotion and response to many situations, but when you can’t control how you’re feeling, it can be concerning and frustrating. Find out more here.

Psymplicity's approach to treating anger management

Anger issues often stem from traumatic experiences, but not always. Our bespoke treatment plans are personalised to help you identify the cause and move forward with your life without uncontrolled anger dominating your interactions with others.

Can a psychological condition cause anger?

While not always the case, anger can be a symptom of underlying psychological conditions. Pinpointing the underlying issues is crucial for effective treatment.

Our anger management specialists have decades of combined experience in diagnosing and treating anger issues and have practised in leading institutions in the UK and beyond.

How do I know if I have anger issues?

Anger can be a positive emotion — it can drive us to take action and act as an internal compass, showing us when something is “off”. But how do you know if there’s more to your anger than a rational reaction to a situation? Find out here, along with all the ways anger manifests.

Why can’t I control my anger?

We all experience anger, and while not a pleasant emotion, in healthy doses, it helps us identify people and situations we should move away from. It can also be a catalyst for creative thinking and channelled to achieve personal and professional goals. But unhealthy anger — anger that is unpredictable and uncontrollable — can be incredibly harmful to you and others.

When you don’t take the right steps to control your anger with anger management treatment, it will affect your relationships with friends, family and colleagues, and prevent you from having a positive impact at work and in social situations. For most people, anger comes and goes but rarely causes long-lasting damage. Unfortunately, if you are unable to control your anger, it can take its toll on your mental wellbeing, sleep and overall quality of life. It can also impact your physical health. 

Anger floods the body with stress hormones, increasing your heart rate, blood pressure and breathing. This can initiate a stress response that leads to physical outbursts or unexpected emotional reactions to your built-up frustration.

Do you struggle to control your anger and feel as though it’s becoming or could become harmful to others? If so, our experienced team of anger management psychiatrists are here to help you.

Can a psychological condition cause uncontrolled anger?

There are many causes of anger, from unwanted pressure at work and financial problems to stressful situations at home. It can also come about as a direct response to a physical altercation or argument. But uncontrollable anger might also be the result and expression of a deep-rooted psychological issue, which can stem from trauma, unresolved issues or an inability to express your true feelings. When you “bottle up” your emotions, it can lead to an explosive response that’s difficult to control.

Below are some of the psychological conditions that can lead to anger management disorder: 

Depression: Depression often makes individuals feel sad and fatigued, but the suppression of depressed feelings can also result in anger as well as irritability and harmful or intrusive thoughts.

Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder (OCD): Obsessive thoughts and engaging in compulsive behaviours are often a huge source of frustration, which can gradually build and result in anger.

Adult ADD or ADHD: Adult ADHD or ADD can be frustrating, and if left untreated (or undiagnosed), it can cause frustration to boil over and lead to more severe anger problems. 

Intermittent Explosive Disorder (IED): Intermittent Explosive Disorder causes explosive bouts of rage that are not only unpredictable and aggressive but also vastly disproportionate to the initial trigger. This can cause your behaviour to be perceived as highly unreasonable or unnecessary.

Bipolar Disorder: People with bipolar disorder regularly experience high, low and mixed mood swings. While a high or mixed mood can cause anger issues brought on by irritability, a low mood can also have an impact, as bottling up emotions can fuel underlying anger.

Generalised Anxiety Disorder (GAD): Generalised Anxiety Disorder (GAD) causes high anxiety and is characterised by excessive, uncontrollable worry. These feelings can make a person feel vulnerable and nervous, which can lead to frustration, defensiveness and anger.

Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD): Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder, or PTSD, leads those with the condition to relive negative memories or past experiences associated with traumatic events. Exposure to a stimulus commonly triggers strong feelings of anger and frustration, and even aggressive or explosive outbursts. While dedicated PTSD treatment is crucial, anger management treatment is also beneficial to ensure that any subsequent anger issues are given the appropriate attention.

Oppositional Defiant Disorder (ODD): Adults and children with ODD experience episodes of hot temper and irritability and tend to become upset over situations more easily than others. This can lead to the development of more severe or persistent anger issues. 

If you would like to gain a better understanding of your anger issues and find out if it may be caused by a deep-seated psychological condition, you can book an in-person appointment or a one-hour online counselling assessment.

How do I know if I have anger issues?

Anger is complex and often caused by a deep-rooted issue that requires exploring before the condition can be treated effectively. While you might think that you just have a “short fuse”, it’s possible that you have been dealing with anger issues for years.

Anger issues are characterised by emotional symptoms or rage, anxiety and stress. People who suffer from anger issues typically experience one or more of the following symptoms:

Much like there are different types of anger issues, the manifestation of anger can vary too. They can be separated into the following categories:

Chronic anger: A persistent state of anger that controls your feelings, emotions and thoughts.

Passive anger: Passive anger is often repressed and you may not realise you feel this way, even if others do. Passive anger can make you express hostility indirectly, for example, through subtle insults, sarcasm, stubbornness or deliberate self-sabotage.

Aggressive anger: Aggressive outbursts or acts of dominance and intimidation are signs of this type of anger. This can have adverse effects on your relationships, causing you and your loved ones emotional pain and suffering.

Book an appointment to see how we can help stop anger from controlling the way you live your life. During your 1-hour consultation, you’ll develop a better understanding of your symptoms and receive a bespoke plan of treatment.

The Psymplicity approach to anger management

Anger issues differ from person to person, so there’s no such thing as a standard approach. 

At Psymplicity, our anger management psychiatrists tailor an approach that suits your circumstances. We offer three types of anger management treatment, which we can move forward with once we learn more about your anger issues and determine the best option for you.

Psychiatric assessment and counselling plan for anger

This treatment is recommended when anger is a highly destructive force in your life or if you also have anxiety, a mood disorder or you’re dealing with past trauma. This can have long-lasting effects on your personal relationships, career and self-image. By delving into the root of your anger through a personalised counselling plan, we can help you move forward and leave uncontrolled anger behind. In some cases, a counselling plan will include a medical prescription from a psychiatrist to treat anger arousal.

Psychotherapy

Our anger management therapists will work closely with you to analyse the subtle yet unhelpful messages you have received about anger. You’ll gain greater awareness of your boundaries and practice communicating assertively while using your anger as a positive, creative force that empowers your life.

Cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT)

Cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) is a short-term therapy technique that can help you find new ways to behave by changing unhelpful thought patterns. You’ll identify what triggers your anger and learn coping mechanisms to manage your emotions in situations where you’d typically respond negatively.

Your anger management treatment plan

Following our in-depth counselling assessment and subsequent anger management treatment plan, you’ll benefit from a personalised and balanced approach that explores the cause of your anger issues and establishes the best form of treatment to suit your needs.

Step One - Identify the cause of your anger issues

Anger issues are often a result of a specific, traumatic, event or underlying condition. Not understanding why you get so angry and feeling helpless are two of the biggest frustrations you might have. Identifying the cause of your anger is a crucial part of the treatment process and gives our anger management psychiatrists a thorough understanding of where the problem stems.

Step Two - Break the cycle

Anger can be self-perpetuating – the more you get angry, the angrier you become. The key lies in acknowledging the issue and identifying the right solution to break the cycle. Your tailored treatment plan might involve a combination of coaching, behavioural exercises and, in some cases, medication.
