Many people experience difficulties managing feelings of anger and (or) frustration. Some people understand their anger to be caused by a single or series of events, whilst others consider it to be an intrinsic part of their character/way of being. However one understands the onset/nature of their anger, it can be, and often is, expressed in a problematic way that leads to difficulties within familial, wider, and professional relationships.
It is not unusual that people who struggle with anger also exhibit controlling behaviour. This may come in the form of intimidation, manipulation or other adverse ways of being. The impact upon others can be widespread and devastating. However, as well as impacting upon others anger can also be a private, and sometimes self-destructive experience.
I have many years experience of working with people who struggle with anger management. Whilst at the Everyman Project (a charitable organisation for people wishing to cease abusive behaviour) I delivered tailored one-to-one therapy sessions that equipped clients to manage their anger in practical ways as well as resolve underlying issues that trigger angry responses. For the NHS I set up a psychotherapy and counselling service in a forensic setting that was focused on reducing conflict and anger management.
I now provide anger management therapy in Bristol and South Gloucestershire in private and hospital settings.
