The term anger management commonly refers to a system of psychological therapeutic techniques and exercises by which someone with excessive or uncontrollable anger & aggression can control or reduce the triggers, degrees, and effects of an angered emotional state (193).
Some popular anger management techniques include relaxation techniques, cognitive restructuring, problem solving, and improving communication strategies (194).
In some countries, courses in anger management may be mandated by their legal system (193).
Anger is a normal emotion, but it can become uncontrollable and lead to problems for you, your family and your personal relationships.
Anger can show itself as aggression if you become violent and threatening to others. This type of anger can quickly lead to trouble for you and can sometimes cause a breakdown in relationships. Anger can disrupt your ability to think and act clearly and can lead you to behave impulsively.
Anger is sometimes used as a defence barrier against hurt or embarrassment.
When anger is suppressed or turned inwards, it can lead to other problems such as eating disorders, self harm, drugs, and alcohol addictions.
You may suppress the anger if you find it difficult to talk about how you feel.
Therapy can often help with finding the root of your anger and providing ways to control and change your behaviour patterns (14).
Counselling and psychotherapy may be provided via Skype and FaceTime in the comfort of your home, office or any place of your choice.
