Anger Management Crawley and East Grinstead
Anger Counselling and Stress Counselling /Psychotherapy

I have had many years experience, working in Crawley and East Grinstead, counselling people with Anger and stress issues. As I’m sure you know, anger is perfectly healthy and a basic emotion.

If you are a parent,  you would know, that even the tiniest baby can get angry; it is part of being human. Anger takes many forms, from mild irritation to wild rage, and all points in between. We get angry at people, irritated by objects, institutions or any random happening. Similar to all emotions, anger affects your basic physiological level, blood pressure, heart rate and increased muscle tension, when you feel on edge. Problems can occur when the anger becomes uncontrolled and un-controllable. As I’m sure you know, anger is perfectly reasonable and a fundamental emotion. I’m sure you know, if you are a parent, that even the tiniest baby can get angry; it is part of being human.

Forms of Anger

Anger takes many forms, from mild irritation to wild rage, and all points in between. We get angry at people, irritated by objects, institutions or any random happening.  Similar to all emotions, anger affects your basic physiological level, blood pressure, heart rate and increased muscle tension, when you feel on edge.  Problems can occur when the anger becomes uncontrolled and uncontrollable.

Do I have problems with anger?

Anger is on a spectrum, mild annoyance to uncontrollable rage.   A clinical disorder, something that needs professional help, would be on the extreme end of this spectrum.  This is where anger management counselling can help. Something to bear in mind is is that there is actually no such thing as an anger disorder. Generally speaking, Extreme anger tends to be rooted in other problems or symptoms.  When it spills over into violence or violent outbursts, it then becomes a problem, for you and others around you and all too often loved ones get the brunt of violent explode.

How common are anger problems?

  • 45% regularly lose their temper at work.
  • Over 80% of British drivers have been involved in road rage incidents.
  • One in 20 has had verbal or physical fights with their neighbours.
  • 20% of Britons have behaved aggressively while shopping (This figure rises to 33% for young people)
  • A problem with our computers has prompted half of us to hit the machines (a subject of many YouTube videos), throw things around, such as keyboards, and shout at colleagues.

Most of us express anger by yelling and screaming,  50% do this, but only 5% of people get physically aggressive when they are angry.  Men and women get angry, just about as often as each other, but men’s reactions tend to be extreme.  Men are much more likely to fly into fits of rage.

How can Counselling/psychotherapy help?

Anger can often be the evidence of other problems.  Counselling/psychotherapy has been found to help greatly the underlying issues which cause rage and violent outbursts. Counselling/psychotherapy can help you understand the triggers which cause you to be angry and help you to live a happy and fulfilled life. Eleos counselling is part of an international franchise (citizen anger management). As part of this franchise, we offer a  six-session anger management program which utilises formal and online learning to help you tame your anger.

I always on a short fuse, everybody knew that. I would become extremely angry really quickly. I was like that for years. My temper costs me jobs and relationships. I knew there was something wrong, but I could never put my finger on it. After one angry outburst my partner had enough and told me to go to counselling, or he would leave me. Being given the ultimatum made me furious. Then I went to see Tony, I didn’t want to, but he was brilliant, he just listened didn’t judge me, In  anger management counselling, I had a chance to look at the causes of my anger and work out strategies, which now help me manage it

I don’t get so angry and now know how to react when I feel angry now working on my future with my partner not living in the past.
