Anger Management Counselling
Anger as any other human emotion, is a completely normal emotion. Every person experiences this emotion now and then, but it can get problematic when anger starts getting misplaced or out of control. This can end up in effecting a person’s daily activities, important relationships and over all wellbeing. However mostly people don’t recognise the intensity of the problem by failing to identify the long-term consequences of it. Anger can
be best explained metaphorically as an iceberg where the way we express our anger is just the tip of the iceberg but just the way an iceberg is submerged under water, there are emotions like pain and fear associated with our anger that are hidden.
