What is Adult Anger Management Counselling?
Counselling for anger management can provide a way for you to get a new perspective on your anger. Working with a counsellor on a 1-2-1 basis, you will have the freedom to express exactly how anger is impacting your life – without judgement and in confidence. Exploring the depth of your anger can have a real, positive impact on feelings of wellbeing, sustaining relationships and feeling in control.
There is no charge for this service. Initially, six sessions are offered, usually one every two weeks, and sessions last between 50 minutes and an hour.
Would highly recommend the service to anybody going through tough times in their lives. My counsellor has been outstanding and a credit to your team.
My counsellor was very easy to chat and interact with, made each session easier to chat through. He has helped me massively to open up and chat regarding issues.
Everybody is capable of experiencing anger in response to everyday events and situations. You may recognise your anger in your thoughts, emotions, behaviour and even how you feel physically.
Thoughts – you may find things are always on your mind such as: obsessive thinking or about how unfair something is
Emotional – you may have feelings alongside your anger such as: depression, stress, frustration or guilt
Behaviour – you may find yourself doing things like: shouting, or lashing out
Physical – you may feel things in your body such as: chest pains or shaking
When anger becomes problematic it can create real, long-lasting difficulties for you and the people around you. If you are finding it difficult to work through the consequences of your anger, then counselling may benefit you. Call us today on 01942 867 888 to find out more.

Judy referred herself for anger management counselling because over the last few months, she had noticed herself lashing out verbally at her husband and close family members. Judy’s husband had recently been in a car accident and had sustained life-changing injuries – and Judy felt like his behaviour and personality had changed so much that she no longer recognised the person she had been married to.
How our Anger Management counsellor helped
Judy’s counsellor helped her to explore this loss – without judging her actions. Judy came to the realisation that she had also been hurt by the car accident her husband had been in. She was angry at the loss of her husband – as she had always known him. By compassionately naming her hurt and grief, Judy gained a better understanding of her anger – and found herself losing her temper with the people around her much less frequently. Judy explained that when she did lose her temper, she felt more able to talk honestly and openly with her family about the reasons why – without fearing that they would see her as a terrible person.
