Anger Management Counselling

Anger is a natural emotion. When used constructively and positively, anger can can help us to achieve. When anger is expressed in undesirable ways it can impact on our wellbeing as well as others’ wellbeing. It can also affect our personal and professional life and the overall quality of life we want to experience. When we are angry we trigger adrenaline which can also trigger other physiological responses including increased heart-rate, increased blood pressure, sweating, muscle tensions and sometimes even palpitations. Poorly managed anger can cause some people to choose to behave aggressively towards others and/or themselves. We cannot always control situations which provoke our anger, yet we can control our responses to them.  Anger management counselling helps you to develop skills and strategies to manage your anger.

If you have issues with anger management and would like to develop skills in managing your anger.  Call the team at Sex Life Therapy on (03) 9005 5213.  Sex Life Therapy is a sex therapy and relationship clinic with offices in Melbourne and Frankston.
