Anger Management



Whilst anger is a normal human emotion, sometimes it is experienced beyond reasonable levels and can become a problem in our lives, either if the anger is within us or if we experience it from other people.  It can cause emotional and physical pain to ourselves and to others and can have a destructive effect upon interpersonal relationships.


This page has been posted to my website as from time to time energy healers are called upon to help clients who hold anger or suffer anger from other people and it is helpful to know what additional resources are available to support the energy work that we do.  If our clients have to go back to the environment where anger is caused or experienced after they have left us, they might benefit from knowing where they can go for some practical help on managing anger in their day to day lives. Alternatively, attendance on anger management courses by healers who are suitably qualified and experienced in counselling can give them some ideas on how to integrate anger management techniques into healing energy workshops.


This page has also been posted to my website to give some ideas to people landing here from internet search about practical steps they can take if the anger is within themselves or if they suffer anger from other people.


Below I give details of various organisations in the London area offering a range of anger management support options aimed at different client groups. I present a selection because there are variations in approach between organisations. It might be helpful for anybody interested in anger management to have a look at all of them to get some ideas on what the best approach might be for them or the people that they know. Internet search will come up with many other organisations working in the area of anger management.     


Workshop fees for the organisations below are very reasonable and affordable for most individuals unless indicated to the contrary.

Bodyspace is the name under which the body psychotherapist Guy Gladstone has been running workshops and courses for over 20 years at the Open Centre in Old Street on the edge of the City in Central London. As well as being able to work with traditional counselling and personal development techniques, Guy can bring to his workshops his experience as a facilitator of both bioenergetic and psychodramatic expression of emotions. One of the workshops that he offers is ‘Anger’ All Angles’. it is designed to do full justice to the complexity of anger and is packed with tried and tested procedures for getting a handle on anger. A guiding assumption is that we need to take responsibility for our anger and be able to choose how we communicate it. Guy’s view is that to do this requires first hand bodily knowledge of its workings and the difference between Guy’s workshops and those offered by other organizations is that his workshops are designed to work on the links between anger and the physical body.

Parents’ anger

Many parents experience anger in connection with their children. Often this is because parents do not have enough hours in the day to go to work, run their homes and cope with the demands of looking after their children. This often leads to stress and the next step is anger. Anger management courses are held from time to time at local schools around London. For people happy to be in group workshops, these workshops give the opportunity for parents to learn about anger management alongside other parents who are in exactly the same situation so there can be a good feeling of sharing and openness in the learning situation. If your local school does not hold these courses, please phone the Civic Centre for your local London Borough and make enquiries about workshops being held in your Borough.
