ANGER MANAGEMENT TREATMENT IN PERTH
Anger is an essential part of the human condition, yet anger is often seen as a bad emotion, and a sign that a person is angry, unsafe or dangerous. Anger is that emotional part of yourself that responds to perceived or real danger to mount a “fight” response.
It is common in our society for children to be conditioned to disown and suppress their anger. The child may become an adult who has not learnt how to be in a positive relationship with their anger, or know how to regulate and express it appropriately.
Our Anger Management therapy in Perth can help you to heal you express and manage your anger in a safe and healthy way.

WHAT IS HEALTHY ANGER?
Anger is part of our evolutionary design which resources us to prevail over real or perceived threats. In a socially acceptable way, you can own your healthy anger as a positive contributor to your life, success and career. This form of anger does not look angry but is experienced as conviction, charisma, authority, strength and confidence.
HOW CAN PSYCHOTHERAPY AND COUNSELLING HELP YOU WITH ANGER MANAGEMENT?
Your anger issues can be assisted in understanding the nature and expression of your anger and how to transform that experience from being a negative to a safe positive one.
Our Anger Management Counselling provides appropriate education about why and how you may have developed bad habits around managing your anger. We are able to show you the impact of that behaviour, and assist you to relearn new ways to express anger appropriately, or to recognise anger that is manifesting, and disarm it before it becomes unmanageable.
WHAT DOES OUR ANGER MANAGEMENT THERAPY INCLUDE?
You may fear your own anger and disown it, which may set you up to eventually erupt into a volcano of anger, convincing you that your anger is bad and out of control.
Our Anger Management treatment will get you to own your anger and dynamically express it in an authentic and embodied way. You will learn to reclaim it, so and transform it into life affirming positive anger. This will strengthen your boundary setting capabilities, and help you adopt effective and essential leadership traits.
As you learn to be safe with your own anger, you will feel safe with yourself and others, which goes beyond managing anger to transforming anger into an appropriate part of your being. We will additionally teach you new ways to perceive and react to outside events, moods and triggers, so that anger is no longer your automatic “go-to” response.
