Anger Management

Is your anger causing problems in your life? Counselling could be a solution for you. I can help you to learn how to control your anger and to not lose control in challenging situations.

Is a problem with anger ruining your life?

Have you ever been so angry that you want to lash out, throw things or shout at somebody? Perhaps the stress of work or day to day life builds to the point that you feel like screaming?

Maybe you feel guilty or ashamed at feeling as though you want to kick the dog or you upset your children because they can be “irritating”? If you feel this way anger management counselling may be able to help you.

Why do we get angry, where does it come from and why is it bad?

I’m sure I speak for many people who’ve experienced their “blood boiling” as anger surges, the horrible feeling of being told you have “anger issues”. The thing is, anger is natural, it’s part of our natural defences, part of our instinct, so getting angry from time to time is unavoidable.

Anger is part of a system that alerts us to danger and help's us respond to threats, indeed, anger can be the stimulus to changing many aspect of our lives that we are unhappy with. The problem arises when we can’t control our anger.

When we get angry, we trigger responses in our body that essentially make us ready for a fight; our heartbeat gets faster and adrenaline pumps around our body quicker. 


The trouble is, intense levels of emotions over a prolonged period can lead to anxiety, depression, high blood pressure and a lower functioning immune system, amongst other problems.

What can be done and how can anger management counselling help me?

One of the toughest lessons I had to learn and probably the most important thing about anger management is that you can’t control situations that might make you angry. Things will happen that will make you angry.

But you can learn to be in control of your own thoughts, feelings and emotions and how you respond to those situations. You can learn not to shout at your children. You can learn not to be provoked by your partner. You can learn not to get frustrated at work.

With anger management counselling you can learn to handle all kinds of anger issues ranging from frustration that’s quite mild to violent outbursts of rage.


I work with anger by offering people a confidential, safe space to explore what triggers your anger and get to the bottom of your frustrations.

You’ll find as we explore your anger, we shed light on other emotions that may be troubling you too such as shame, fear, guilt and embarrassment.
