Anger Management Counselling

Do you feel angry all the time?

Have you been arguing with people around you?

Would you like to be able to repair your relationships with loved ones?

There are emotions hiding under the surface

There are many things that might cause us to feel angry, such as family problems, feeling threatened or frustration. When we feel powerless to influence or control something, pent up emotions and feelings of stress, hurt and even fear can be exhibited as anger. When anger becomes destructive in any way, a safe and non-judgemental space can provide you with a healthy way opportunity to explore your feelings.

Have you found yourself…?

  • Having explosive outbursts and breaking things
  • Getting involved in physical violence
  • Arguing with those around you
  • Losing your temper very quickly
  • Feeling a constant desire to lash out (physically or verbally)

What is Anger Management Counselling?

Anger management counselling is a therapy that helps to explore and identify possible causes and triggers for your anger. Its aim is to provide you with the skills and coping mechanisms you need to handle your emotions, solve problems and communicate effectively.

Typically, anger management counselling will focus on a specific type of anger issue, such as work or relationships. You might be given at-home tasks to help you develop the techniques and skills you learn during your sessions.
