With the right support, our biblical counseling can give you tangible advice for dealing with anger in constructive ways such as deep breathing exercises and utilizing positive thinking techniques. Biblical counseling also helps build a strong connection to God through prayer and meditation, which can redirect destructive thoughts and allow us to move forward in a more positive way. In short, biblical anger counseling provides a holistic way for overcoming anger through both practical and spiritual means.

Do you ever feel like anger is tearing your life apart? Do you find yourself constantly feeling righteous indignation and not knowing how to control it or channel it into something more positive? If so, then it’s time for you to take back control of your emotions by learning how to heal from anger. As Christian therapists, we know that God provides us with the means to regain our peace of mind amid difficult memories and greater challenges. Below we will explore practical ways that Christians can begin their journey toward healing from anger and achieving healthy relationships with both others around them as well as their own inner self.
At Samaritans Well, we understand that outbursts of anger can prevent meaningful connections with those closest to us and upset the solace in our lives. We offer a compassionate space for individuals who seek help managing their anger so they may begin renewing relationships damaged by it or establish healthier ones. Here, clients explore why their feelings are arising – both within themselves and from external sources - to allow them take control of defining how these emotions shape their world moving forward.
As counselors, we provide guidance to help individuals learn how to recognize the deeper emotions that can be found underneath expressions of anger. If they are able and willing to have an open dialogue about their underlying hurt, fear or frustration - instead of simply reacting with anger – it often helps them manage those intense feelings in healthier ways. We look together at tools that allow for better communication such as self-expression and understanding when we feel overwhelmed so they don’t lash out either internally or externally towards family members but rather deal constructively with these powerful emotions.
As we journey together, I'd like to help you learn how to express your relational needs in a healthy way—so that the people around you don't feel attacked by any aggression. Unfortunately, many of us have adopted self-destructive habits when it comes to dealing with anger: either let our emotions boil over and lash out or suppress them altogether. But there is another path forward! Learning methods such as being able assert yourselves appropriately can drastically improve your lives--and those around you!--by helping understand and work through underlying feelings constructively so they aren’t later packed away into hidden resentments.
God invites us to honestly express our anger, and never let it linger. The Bible teaches that being angry in itself is not sinful - instead, it's the way we choose to handle this emotion which can lead down a path of sinfulness if left unattended. When faced with issues contrary to Scripture or mistreatment from others causing upset, God calls on us be prudent stewards of our emotions by allowing ourselves healthy moments for processing and engaging in meaningful conversation rather than holding onto resentment or vengeful thoughts which would potentially give place 'to the devil’.
With righteous anger, we can access God's perspective on the situation and find room for compassion. But when individual anger has rooted itself deep in our hearts it gives way to resentment - a destructive force that thwarts forgiveness and creates bitterness between two parties. It is by understanding this distinction between righteous anger and personal emotion that we are able to move forward without succumbing to venomous feelings of disdain or regret.
All too often, anger is like an unchecked poison spreading through our lives. We are here to help our clients understand - Why does this feeling of rage arise in them? Where do the roots lie and why are they so deep-seated? Beyond that, we'll look at practical solutions for reigning it back in with tangible steps one can take when emotions start boiling over! Together let's create a better relationship with your innermost feelings; understanding their power yet knowing how to express them more appropriately is key.
