Anger Management

Anger is an emotion that we all experience from time to time. It is totally normal, even healthy to express anger. However, rage, uncontrolled anger or anger that doesn’t subside for long periods of time can take over your life leading to violence, depression and even suicide.

Anger management is all about learning and recognising the triggers and taking measures to deal with the situation without hurting oneself or others.

What are the causes of anger?

Anger may be a result of internal or external factors. Internal factors include perceived failures or injustices. External factors are outside the control of the individual such as humiliation or loss of privilege or property.

  • Persistent negative thinking
  • Engaging in physical violence
  • Persistent feelings of irritation or hostility
  • Constantly feeling the need to suppress your anger
  • Abnormal behaviour such as breaking objects when angry
  • Avoid people or situations due to anxiety about outbursts
