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.

Brief Therapy for Depression

Most depressions can be cured or substantially alleviated yet we still pretend that they can’t. Hand-wringing and attempts at sympathy don’t help, enlightenment and common understanding will. Treatment guidelines are explicit, brief problem-solving talk-therapy is a proven treatment.
We should be accepting and treating depression as the common ailment it is, not shrouding it in mystery and pretending that we don’t know what to do about it.
