Anger Management Counselling in Paddington and West London


Is your anger causing a problem in your life?

Anger is a natural emotion, but can become destructive if not contained. A counsellor can support you to learn how to better manage your anger in challenging situations.

Have you ever been so angry that you want to throw things or shout at somebody? Perhaps the stress of work, day-to-day life, or financial issues push you to the point of losing control.

Does your anger make you feel guilty or ashamed once the anger has died down?

If you feel this way, anger management counselling may be able to help you.

Why do we get angry?

Many people have experienced their ‘blood boiling’ as anger surges. Being told that you have anger issues doesn't help. Remember that anger is a natural part of our defences; it is an energy that rises up in response to perceived boundary violations, whether in the past or present. Getting angry from time to time is unavoidable.

Anger alerts us to danger and helps us respond to threats. When we get angry, a chain reaction is set in motion whereby our body prepares us to fight; our heartbeat gets faster and adrenaline rapidly circulates throughout the body. You will probably notice a rush of energy and blood to your hands, shoulders and face. 

When anger becomes chronic it can, over a prolonged period, have a negative effect on our health. Increased cortisol, which is the stress hormone, causes a host of negative health outcomes including weight gain, high blood pressure, muscle pain, insomnia, anxiety and depression.

Understanding what triggers anger within you

One of the challenges of anger management is learning how to respond consciously to situations that normally trigger you. 

  • You can learn not to shout at your children.

  • You can learn not to be provoked by your partner.

  • You can learn not to get frustrated by work.

Anger management counselling can help you to develop more skilful ways to handle all kinds of anger issues, ranging from frustration that is quite mild, to violent outbursts of rage. A counsellor will offer a confidential safe space for you to talk through how and why you get triggered. They will help you to explore your anger and other emotions that might be troubling you, such as shame, fear, guilt or embarrassment.
