Anger management is about learning to control or prevent angry behaviour. Anger is both a feeling and a behaviour. Everyone feels angry from time to time, however, angry behavior is not necessary. Angry behaviour can involve: Any aggressive or violent behaviour; verbal or non-verbal, yelling, criticising, patronising, throwing or breaking things, storming out, ignoring, and withdrawing.
Clients learn about angry behaviour, and strategies to control angry behaviour. In addition, I help clients to make lifestyle changes to help control angry thoughts and behaviours. These changes may involve improvements in drug or alcohol use, fitness, sleeping, stress, or help with conditions such as anxiety or depression.
