Do you find yourself losing your temper regularly? Do you feel unable to control your anger is certain situations? Is this affecting your relationships at home and at work? Anger and frustration can be due to a complex interplay of various factors. This will be different for each individual.
In our day-to-day lives anger is a normal and inevitable emotion that we all experience from time to time. Our anger alerts us to issues in our lives that we perceive as threatening in some way and as such, is functional and even invaluable. However, when someone reacts to anger with verbal or physical aggression, and anger is regarded as uncontrollable, this has become a problem – to the individual concerned but also to other people in that person’s life.
In my practice I adopt a skills based and solutions- focused approach to anger management. I explore in full the background and dynamics of each individual’s experience of anger and I devise a unique intervention for each client with the emphasis on understanding anger triggers, reactions and thought processed and patterns.
