There is nothing wrong with anger – it is simply one of our emotional responses, and a valuable one at that – but when it is expressed badly it can lead to all sorts of problems. Anger Management – being able to recognise and express anger in an appropriate way – enables people to get better results, and to have their needs recognised and met, without causing a social disturbance or limiting their prospects in the process!

While I don’t think it is helpful to label others as having an ‘anger problem’ or ‘needing anger management’, we do need to start somewhere so the labels serve a short-term purpose of allowing us to talk about something that is spoiling our lives, or the lives of others on the receiving end of our anger.

Working with anger I help people gain mastery over their unwelcome emotional responses, to find new ways of responding to emotions and coping with anger. It may seem odd, but I do not target the anger in these sessions when working with clients. I am more interested in helping them build on their existing resources to find ways of interacting that do not result in feelings of anger or angry responses.
