Episode 61: Let’s Talk About Anger, with Dr Caroline Boyd

Anger feels like the baddie of emotions. Many of us deal with anger by numbing it, or pushing it down, hoping it’ll magically disappear. But it’s still there, trapped in the body. Instead of stuffing it down, let’s talk about anger, and learn a more effective way of processing it.

Today’s guest is Dr Caroline Boyd, Chartered Clinical Psychologist and author who is frequently quoted in the press on women’s rage and maternal anger. We focus more generally on anger in this conversation, whether or not you’re a mom (or even a parent). You’ll learn how our complex relationship to anger starts early. You’ll learn practical ways to manage those ‘flip your lid’ moments, and why you’re encouraged to start turning TOWARDS your anger, instead of pushing it away (counterintuitive and brilliant!)
