Professional Anger Management Online
Professional anger management therapy, online via telehealth.
Anger is one of our primary human emotions, an intense emotional state that involves a strong uncomfortable and non-cooperative response to perceived provocation, hurt or threat.
A person experiencing anger will often feel physical effects including increased heart rate, elevated blood pressure and increased levels of adrenaline.
While anger is a completely normal human emotion experienced by almost everyone from time-to-time, if its intensity, frequency or expression is must be addressed.
When present, uncontrolled anger often overrides other emotions and becomes so dominant it can impact clear decision making. Unmanaged anger can have very serious consequences for an individual’s personal health and relationships.
Anger issues often stem from deeper unresolved issues which allows anger to surface rapidly and intensely – unmanaged or uncontrolled anger causes societal issues which can present as things like:
Office or workplace rage
Physical assaults or domestic violence
Assaults of frontline workers including paramedics, nurses or retail assistants
Family or child abuse
Issues managing anger are more common than you may think, according to statistics collected by the British Association of Anger Management, around one in ten adults admit to having trouble controlling their anger or rage.
However, 32% of individuals say they have a close friend or family member who has issues controlling their anger.
Online anger management therapy delivered via telehealth is not a new concept and was already growing at a steady rate prior to 2020.
However, during the global pandemic two factors at play greatly accelerated the adoption of online anger management counselling:
Forced social distancing which made e-health and online treatment the norm
Increased feelings of social isolation, heightened levels of uncertainty as a result of ongoing health concerns, record levels of job-loss and unemployment increased levels of frustration which made anger more prevalent and difficult to manage.
