What is Anger?
Anger is an emotion we've all felt at some stage - it helps us stand up for ourselves when scared and when there is danger to our physical safety. It becomes an issue, however, when we constantly feel anger, or when it starts to negatively affect our lives or the lives of those around us.
I can help when anger gets transferred into behaviour that is abusive and violent.
When you are angry you may feel like you are being controlled by your emotions and losing control of what you say and do. You might get angry at a person (partner or colleague at work), at a situation (traffic going slow), or sitting on stress or worry about a personal concern.
Together, we will help you control and understand your anger, and I will assist you to have effective and safe/respectful communication both at home and at work.
You may choose to have a quick anger management fix or longer therapy resolving the core issues of where the anger comes from.
I am one of the most qualified and experienced anger management counsellors in the South Island. I have had men (directed by the family court), and women (directed by CYFS) sent to me because of their domestic violence. I have also worked with victims of domestic violence.
I was selected to participate in a national hui of experienced anger management counsellors to share what is effective in helping people to change their behaviour when they are angry. I have worked successfully with children, adolescents, and adults since 1999 in managing people’s anger and conflicts.
I am up to date with the current most effective and efficient ways for managing anger that is affecting marriages, relationships, and work places. My approaches are evidence-based therapy and counselling methods for anger.
Together we can learn to manage your anger so it is an asset rather than a relationship and career liability.
If You or Others are Experiencing Anger:
Being out of control
Having an impact on your relationships and on important parts of your life
Then talk to me so you can be in control of your anger rather than live with anger controlling you.
