If you want to get a hold on your anger, you probably do not have to come and see me in person in Dublin, self-help is enough for most people.
My background is mental health, working in the NHS in the UK, and I have been doing this for long enough to know when to advise self help, before going down the therapy route!
Anger Management Course will be available early Spring.
Anger management, is psycho educational. Which simply means you will learn about the emotion and learn how, not just to control it, but how to reduce what you physically feel.
This type of work does not really need individual sessions, although you are welcome to come to see me in person if you wish, but you will end up paying a fortune for what I am providing in a course!
The demand for my services is extremely high, I have more requests from people for appointments, than I can actually see. This is partly why I have started to make my skills available online.
Many people, end up going to see someone else, and eventually wait to come to see me. You end up paying the first therapist, and if your problem was not resolved, you pay me.
My hope is that by offering a course for anger management, you will be able to solve your own problem without any expensive therapy fees!
If you have been looking online for anger management, I am going to start by saying, it is not about managing the emotion, nor is it as simple as ‘taking time out.’
My course will not be giving tips like ‘count to ten’ as this does not work for most people. Anger is an emotion, if you are having serious anger problems, I doubt me telling you to count to ten will do much good, it will probably make you more angry!
If you are simply looking for tips that you can readily find on the internet, this course is not for you.
If you actually want to, not only understand what is happening in your brain when you are angry, but what you need to do to fix it, then this course will help.
If your experience of anger is interfering with your quality of life, let me be clear, you will not be doing this on purpose.
You will be flooded with anger in many situations, and you then react according to what you feel in your body at that time.
How you think, feel and act, in that moment, will appear, largely out of your control. To a certain extent, it is.
Until you understand, what I refer to as, ‘the space inbetween.’
Whether you experience anger, hostility, aggression, jealousy, indeed any negative emotion or behaviour, that seems out of your control, there is always a space in between the stimulus and response.
Unfortunately it is such an automatic process, it goes unnoticed. Fortunately, I am a psychologist, and this is my area, and I want to help you understand this ‘space inbetween.’
