Professional Anger Management Counselling | Sydney

Do you often feel like you are on ‘edge’? Do you have a ‘quick temper’? Do you often feel angry, but not know why?

What Is Anger, Is It Bad And Do I Need To Control It?

It is common for people to experience anger as a primary emotion. It is important to give yourself time to explore and express your feelings of anger so you can be unburdened from it. Counselling can assist you to do this in a non-destructive manner.

Our anger management psychologists work with people experiencing anger as a primary emotion. We understand that clients have valid reasons for their emotions, and that their frustration and expression of anger is often misunderstood. We provide clients with effective ways to learn better ways to express their emotions without resorting to anger as their default response to external triggers.

 

Professional Anger Management Services For Men

Whilst issues of anger are experienced by both men and women, enquiries and services for anger management at New Vision Psychology are often on behalf of men. Frequently, male clients who receive anger management counselling with us have been referred by their wives, partners or work places.

Given the frequency of male clients experiencing symptoms of anger, New Vision Psychology is able to provide anger management therapy by counsellors with experience in specialist men’s counselling services.

Anger Management Therapy Outcomes

New Vision Psychology can assist you in the following ways:

  • Learn to understand that your anger is valid, and is for a good reason.
  • Recognise that while your anger is valid, that is some of the ways you express your anger may not be effective in getting your needs met.
  • Provide you with a framework so that you may safely explore triggers of your anger.
  • Learn how to recognise early warning signs of your anger (e.g. shallow breathing, feeling hot, increased heartbeat, tense muscles, increased volume of your voice, shaking), and how to respond to these early warning signs by de-escalation.
  • Provide strategies so that you may explore ways to manage anger when you are triggered.
  • Explore positive and effective ways to deal with frustration.
  • Learn long-term management of emotions such that feelings of anger and frustration are managed as they arise, rather than allowing a build up of uncontrolled anger.
  • Use anger effectively, that is, to stay in control rather than to let the anger make you ‘out of control’.
  • Learn to use anger effectively, for example, as a motivator.
  • Use of Cognitive Behavioural Therapy to address anger issues.
  • Improved relationships with family and work colleagues due to reduced anxiety and emotional stress on their part.
