Is your angry child a concern for you?
Are you afraid for what they might do next?
Are you afraid of what you might do next?
If your child is aged 8 upwards, there are various techniques to help your child or teenager express themselves more effectively rather than being controlled by their emotions. Too often the angry child finds their behaviour being blamed without anyone ever asking why they got angry in the first place. Behind the angry is a sense of injustice and hurt.
Sometimes the underlying issue can be a confidence one or an inability to express themselves. Between the ages of 8 to 18, an adult must be present in the consultation room.
What your child or teenager learns from me:
- how to deal with the situations that previously caused them to feel angry;
- that they do not need to be defined by their anger;
- develop better ways of behaving so that it is possible to control their anger;
- and at the same time raise their self esteem and confidence.
The most important element of my work is that there is nothing wrong with your child. Anger is a valid emotion but the issue is the behaviour in which the anger is expressed.
I offer a:
- judgement free environment
for your child or teenager to feel that they are free to express whatever upset is inside and to determine what the anger is trying to tell them so that your child can communicate more effectively and feel less isolated.
In this way, your child is learning to recognise anger as a sign something has upset them and take appropriate steps to calm themselves down. There is nothing wrong with your angry child, they need to know that. Too many times the child will feel the burden that they’ll be punished in any case. I help them to understand what to do with the feelings inside of them. Appointments in Limerick City Centre.
