Our Practice Manager, Tom, was recently interviewed for Happiful Magazine discussing anger as an emotion commonly found within therapy, and the new idea of "rage rooms" and "scream therapy". Here's an excerpt:
“We humans experience a broad range of different emotions, but none of those are more demonised than anger,” Tom Bulpit, a counsellor and psychotherapist, says. “Rage is a natural feeling that is often triggered when we’ve been deeply hurt; that level of anger speaks to a deep level of pain within us. There’s a part of us that might want to release that rage, and let that dark, destructive force rip out of us at everything around us. We might even want to break stuff, or hurt people, or simply reflect back the injury we feel that has been done to us. But there’s often another part of us that is desperate to also keep that rage in, and to suppress it rather than let it out.”
