Anger Management

Helping Gosford and Central Coast residents deal with anger

Anger is a perfectly normal emotion, but if it isn’t expressed in healthy ways it can cause us to act aggressively and inappropriately, resulting in personal and work relationships being negatively affected. We cannot control anger-provoking situations, but we can control how we respond to them.

We work with you in Gosford and other areas of the Central Coast to gain an understanding of what triggers your anger and help you develop appropriate coping strategies to better manage anger-provoking situations.

Uncontrolled levels of anger not only affect your personal relationships but also your health. Uncontrolled anger has been linked to high blood pressure, headaches, back pain, insomnia, skin conditions such as eczema, irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), depression, anxiety, heart attack and stroke. Suppression of anger is damaging too, and has been linked to eating disorders, self-harm, misuse of drugs or alcohol and low self-esteem.

By acknowledging you have anger problems, you are taking the first important step in improving not only your own well-being, but the well-being of those around you.
