Anger Management

Living with the pressures of modern day life can put enormous stress on our relationships, family and work. The result is we live more stressful lives and increasingly witness and experience greater levels of irritation, frustration, and anger.

 

Anger is a response to a perceived threat; it is a natural response and is necessary for our survival. Anger itself is not the problem; the problem for most people is the inappropriate expression of their anger and the damage this causes in their own lives and those around them. When our anger stops being a healthy response, it can intensify and spread to anything that gets in the way.

 

Making positive changes through Anger Management:

 

It can be really hard to identify and acknowledge that we have a problem expressing our anger. Even when we can see the issue, making that first step to getting support can be even harder. We are often aware of those around us that are suffering from or being subjected to excessive anger. The anger management programme will provide the opportunity for you to understand how anger plays a part in your life. You will be supported in finding healthy ways to control, express and manage anger, empowering you to transform the quality of your life and your interactions with others.

  • Anyone whose anger is affecting relationships at home or at work

    The Boiling Point report produced by the Mental Health Foundation (MHF) in 2008 is based on a sample of almost 2000 people all over the country. This report found that more than 1 in 4 people worry about how angry they sometimes feel, 1 in 3 people say that they have a close friend or family member who has difficulty controlling their anger, and 1 in 5 say that they have ended a relationship or friendship because of how the other person behaved when they were angry. This makes anger a very common issue.

     

    It is difficult to admit that your anger causes you problems, and if you do find the courage to admit it, it can very difficult to find help. More than half the people surveyed (58%) in the MHF report stated that they would not know where to go for help. Only 13% of those who did acknowledge their anger problems had looked for help, and they had tended to approach health-care professionals as the first step.
