Rafael M.T.Therapist :

Hello. I am glad it could be a useful resource for you to explore.and consider for support.

Rafael M.T.Therapist :

People develop anger and self-control problems due to overwhelming feelings we do not know how to cope with, then those feelings of pain get distorted and acted out as anger and aggression, violence against self and other people. This is the way our psyche-body find to get some relief. the problem is that since it is a distorted means, it creates further dysfunction and extra pain.

Rafael M.T.Therapist :

This is why o always recommend people facing challenges like this to also consider individual psychotherapy to work on personal issues leading to violence. it is so common to find depression and anxiety problems behind anger and violence problems, and without taking better care of ourselves at hose levels, we would not be able to eradicate the dysfunctional way of releasing frustration, sadness and fear.

Rafael M.T.Therapist :

Thank you for your trust. Please take gentle care and consistent actions getting the support you need and deserve.
