Anger Management


Everyone at times experiences anger, from mild irritation to extreme rage. Sometimes, however, anger starts expressing itself in detrimental ways such as shouting, throwing and breaking things or causing self harm and help with anger management is often necessary.

Anger management counselling with a Western Plains psychologist can assist in dealing with any unresolved issues which lead to explosive outbursts and behaviours. Working on the root cause will always assist overcoming the symptom.

Some people justify venting anger as better than bottling it up, however if we do not have the right tools to manage our anger, it can actually intensify rather than diminish these feelings. This can lead to damaging verbal and physical encounters, anxiety, depression and even substance abuse. Never expressing or internalising your anger can be equally unhelpful.

A few questions you should ask yourself if you think you have an anger management problem that may require counselling are:

Do you get angry several times a day?
Do you hold on to anger for long periods?
Do you frequently tend to fly off the handle over little things?
Do you go out of your way to avoid getting angry and let such feelings run your life?
Do you use anger and fear to control others?
Do you find yourself getting angry to the point of feeling light-headed, having blurred vision or having uncontrollable shaking hands?
Are you physically or verbally aggressive when angry?

Learning how to manage anger starts with acknowledging its existence and understanding its causes. This knowledge allows the development of ways to handle it and communicate feelings in a non-threatening way.
