Many of us started this job to help people feel good. It seems counter-intuitive for them to get mad in session; and positively anxiety provoking to think of them getting mad at us.
Oftentimes we think of anger as one of the "bad" emotions because of our own history with anger as being something linked with hostile, aggressive behavior, or as covertly dangerous. As a result we often walk through the world trying to avoid people being angry with us.
What ways are you avoiding your clients feeling angry at you?
What ways are you avoiding your clients exploring their anger in session?
Without fully addressing anger with our clients we cannot help them move forward fully.
