Welcome to our Anger Management self-help page. Here we explore ways of dealing with anger and provide information to friends and family members of those who have anger problems
When we feel ourselves under attack, lied to, unfairly treated or criticised, it is often natural for us to respond with feelings of anger. This is part of our normal human experience. We don’t always have to see it as a negative emotion. Indeed, it can sometimes be useful and necessary, for example, to help drive and motivate us to take action
Anger may be problematic when it becomes chronic, inappropriate or regularly causes harm to you or the people you come into contact with. For example, when angry, if you lash out, or say very hurtful things which you do not mean, this can have a negative impact on relationships. Prolonged anger can also raise blood pressure and cause other mental and physical health problems
