An ability to control one’s temper is a crucial life-skill. If you find yourself snapping regularly or internalising anger, we can help you find practical ways to overcome it. Anger management teaches healthy ways to keep anger and bad temper at bay.

How Does Anger Affect My Life?

Uncontrollable anger has a negative effect on every aspect of one’s life – relationships, work, hobbies, self-confidence and other areas of your life can suffer.  

Outbursts and negative reactions to everyday stressors isn’t healthy or fun. At best it can cause you to lose friendships and relationships, at worst it can cost you your livelihood.

Why Do Some People Struggle With Anger Management?

The cause of anger is usually rooted in a person’s life experiences. If someone has lived through a number of difficult events or has lead a life peppered with troubles, they may experience anger issues.

Anger is natural – everyone has experienced a fit of annoyance, frustration or rage at certain situations in their life. Anger is the body’s response to negative events out of our control.

However, if angry episodes are becoming more and more a part of your daily life, it might be time to seek anger management counselling.

How do I know if I Need Anger Management?

Anger manifests itself not only in our actions, but also in our mental and physical health. Anger issues can put a lot of strain on your body and mind, as well as on the people in your life.

Some signs and symptoms of uncontrollable anger include:

Emotional

Physical

  • Hitting or physically attacking objects or other people
  • Having immediate negative reactions to small problems or issues
  • Making unfounded accusations towards other people
  • Finding it hard to calm down once you’ve become angry
  • Constantly repeating the same arguments with friends, family and co-workers
  • Feeling sick or panicky once you’re frustrated
  • Physical aches and pains that can’t be attributed to a physical illness

If you’re identifying with many of these symptoms then it’s time to seek anger management.
