Anger is a normal and healthy emotion yet many of us have not learnt how to express this intense emotion in safe and helpful ways. We stuff our feelings down deep inside us hoping they will go away, but suppression is a pre-cursor to anger issues.

Not dealing with your anger emotions in a safe and mature way will impact your life in severe and adverse ways. It causes significant pain and damage in relationships, disrupts, or destroys careers and can causes health issues, including chronic pain
What Is Anger Management Counselling?
Anger Management Byron Shire
Anger management counselling is a form of therapy aimed at helping people to understand and regulate their anger. It facilitates your grown and awareness so you can identify your triggers, feel your emotions, and communicate more effectively.
Counselling teaches you to connect to what is going on below the surface of your thinking mind. When we re-connect to our senses, listen to the information our bodies provide and act early on these signs we accept our anger feelings without judgement and deal with them safely.
Dealing with anger can be difficult, as we are unlearning old, maladaptive, and ingrained ways of coping, and building new healthy habits and behaviours. The work can be challenging but the rewards are immense.
Counselling can help you understand your anger and find healthy ways to deal with it.
