Help for Aggression using Hypnotherapy & Counselling in Fareham, Southampton, Portsmouth and Winchester.

Why is it that some people seem to be able to remain calm in most situations while others seem to blow up at the smallest thing? Do you feel out of control when you get angry?

Anger is a core emotion so it is experienced from a young age. Sometimes as young as the terrible two’s. Aggression, however, is when you have feelings of anger but they result in you feeling hostile and violent with a need to perhaps attack or confront. The problem with aggression is that it can lead to a feeling of being out of control and the recipient or those around the aggressor becoming frightened and worried. If you suffer from aggression, those close to you may feel like they have to walk on eggshells or avoid you so they do not have to deal with this out of control response.

What plays a factor in aggressive behaviour?

It tends to start with a feeling of anger, of being wronged or a feeling of frustration. When this is experienced, certain individuals may reach a level where they feel that they cannot contain the anger and so this can lead to them exhibiting aggressive behaviour. This can be verbal behaviour or may in some cases lead to violence.

People who display this behaviour may be described as having a short fuse, of boiling over or exploding into displays of violence.

What we have to remember is that we all experience anger, it is a normal part of life and we all know those experiences that can lead us to feel angry- when we are insulted, deceived, frustrated or we felt like we have been under attack. Anger is a normal instinct response to defend ourselves without which we would not have survived. However, there is a boundary that it is important not to cross. Becoming violent and aggressive is not acceptable and can lead to isolation. If you feel that you are not dealing with your anger or aggression in a safe way.


Chronic anger: this is when you are upset and angry by circumstances which are trivial or minor. Chronic anger is often built up over time and can result in feelings of rage on a regular basis.  With this type of anger, the triggers for exploding are often very low and causes other people around those prone to this type of anger to become very wary.

Passive aggression: this involves behaviour where there is a display of indirect resistance to the demands of others and can be shown in displays of stubbornness or sullen behaviour, it can also include procrastination. It can affect relationships as people who exhibit this type of anger often do not disclose why they are behaving in that way.

As we all experience anger it is sometimes difficult to know if you do have a problem with aggression but if you are violent towards others, deliberately break or damage things, argue aggressively with those closest to you or you feel that you are out of control when you are angry it may be time to get some help to deal with this emotion in a better way.

Holding on to anger can lead to health problems, affect your relationships and damage your mental health.

What help is available at Hampshire Hypnotherapy based in Fareham and Twickenham Greater London?

Hypnotherapy can help you to get to the root cause of your emotions and help you to deal with these in a healthier way. It could be that your aggression stems from past experiences, or encounters or it could be that your aggression has been learnt through your upbringing with a parent or primary care giver displaying signs of aggression which you have picked up. This is a response that you do not want to pass on to your own children and so break the cycle today and get some help.

We can work at a conscious and unconscious level here at Hampshire Hypnotherapy. Our fully trained therapist use techniques to suit your individual needs to ensure that change is forthcoming and that your responses are more appropriate and manageable.


When you display signs of aggression it is important to know what the specific triggers are for you. We can work with you to help you to develop a more rational response to these triggers and to diffuse the aggressive behaviour.

Emotions can be difficult to deal with but with our help you can ensure that your anger does not get out of control. So take the time to make those changes happen for you; your relationships and health are worth the effort.
