Philosophy & Counselling: Seneca on Anger

Seneca refused to see anger as something over which we have no control. Instead he saw it as a philosophical problem amenable to treatment.

Philosophy is often a useful complementary mean to psychotherapy and counselling. The philosophical reflection on a particular problem - such as anger, hardship, stress or anxiety – or on general problems - such as the question of a happy and meaningful life – can often positively support the progress of psychotherapy and counselling.
