Anger Management Counselling
WHAT WE DO
As Anger Management Counsellors we have been working with teenagers and their parents for over 18 years. During this time we have delivered highly effective programmes to young people aged between 13 and 25 years old and developed a specifically adapted programme to support parents and carers of teenagers with anger management issues.
We believe all young people have enormous potential that often gets sabotaged by overwhelming and challenging feelings they find hard to manage, we have witnessed the impact of this and seen how it can threaten to tear families apart. We have been highly effective in enabling young people and their parents to listen and better understand each other and learn to see each other more clearly. We work together to manage expectations of one another and their situations that are both realistic and achievable and renew bonds of love and affection lost as these difficulties continued.
Our passion is to break cycles of anger and aggression and through building rapport and trust with teenagers and parents, our empathic approach enables clients to feel valued without judgement and dare to acknowledge and explore some of the biggest barriers in their lives and work through to a place of understanding and acceptance. Our work takes an integrative approach so adapts to best suit the needs of each person we support and we review all change and progress regularly.
What are the benefits
Young people learn how to build a trusting relationship with their counsellor that enables them to honestly and transparently share their fears and feelings without fear of judgement. They will learn new ways to respond to triggers and their aggressive behaviour will diminish over the period we support and we will embed changes to change habits. Welcome to re refer for top up support any time.
How we do it
We adapt our Anger Management Programme, developed over 16 years of experience of delivering this support, to each young person’s situation, issues and needs. We know how to ensure it’s accessible for each client and keep the work entirely relevant, using real life examples. Each young person will begin to get a better understanding of why they get angry and perhaps aggressive at times. We normalise and accept all the difficult feelings that lie beneath the anger, and help to start adjusting boundaries and any unrealistic roles expected of them. We explore the anxieties and fears often at the heart of angry behaviour and build motivation to manage these feelings, and many others, in different more positive ways. We fully support all attempts to test out new ways of responding to triggers, allowing the young person to stay in control. They will learn ,over time, to express themselves assertively and less aggressively to better communicate their needs and get them met.
