Anger Management – Laura Fleming

Laura Fleming    Quals: BA&Sc, Grad Dip Psych, M Psych (Forensic).

Anger Management: Laura works with clients who experience negative outcomes from experiencing anger. There is nothing wrong with experiencing anger. It is a feeling just as valid as happiness, sadness, or excitement. However, how anger is expressed can lead to problems for individuals. Clearly people can be angry about many things, however, for example, feeling angry because someone made you a latte instead of a cappuccino is o.k. if it means you can go and ask for your proper order with the outcome being that you are happy. If you feel you cannot communicate this and put up with the latte you might feel worthless and unhappy or if you choose to communicate by raising your voice, throwing your coffee, or hitting someone, then you are likely to 1) not have coffee, 2) potentially get into legal trouble, and 3) the original issue of the wrong coffee is not going to be resolved. Laura can help you identify your way of expressing anger and developing healthier ways to express if required.

Counselling Approach: Laura works from a client-centred perspective – listening to the story of the client and letting the client set the goals, whilst utilising her psychological skills to assist the client to develop their own skills to achieve their goals. This can incorporate aspects of Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) including Mindfulness, Motivational Interviewing and Narrative Therapy. She is experienced in working with young people from various cultural backgrounds, including Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander.
