Anger Management Action Plan
It may not surprise you to hear that Anger has a bad rap!
One of the functions of Anger is to alert us to situations that are not quite right for us and need our attention. Everyday life issues can trigger our Anger. The car not starting; kids not doing as they’re told; arguing with a loved one; job-hunting, inconsiderate drivers or being hit with an overpayment – any of these events may leave us feeling angry.
But are you surprised to learn that Anger is a completely normal healthy human emotion that we all experience from time to time. It’s quite powerful - and it has a purpose. If you find yourself ‘losing it’ when you become angry it doesn’t necessarily mean you have an anger management problem. If it’s happening regularly there could be an underlying issue that needs to be explored.
Problems arise when we don’t manage ourselves well under the influence of Anger.
The way we choose to act can either help or harm us.The human body is not designed to tolerate Anger indefinitely. Letting anger-related issues go unresolved can lead to serious problems.
If you or a loved one is experiencing any of the following now is the time to seek help.
A pattern of angry outbursts or erratic behaviour
Struggling to remain calm in discussions or negotiations
Obsessing about things: “I should be doing better.” ”You should be doing more…”
Repeatedly blaming others when it is not their fault
Using absolutes: “Everyone hates me.” “You never listen to me.”
Frequent substance abuse
Becoming violent under the influence of alcohol
Difficulty expressing emotions in a calm manner
Ignoring requests to speak about Anger
Withdrawing from loved ones

Your needs will be carefully assessed and evaluated for the purpose of developing an Action Plan that may also involve referral to other specialist services.
