Anger Management – Dr David Wells

Dr David Wells      Quals: B Psych (Hons), Dip Prof Couns, D Psych (Clin Geropsychology).

Anger Management: Anger is normal, but sometimes the behaviours that go with that anger are damaging to ourselves, others or property. It is these wrong behaviours that we seek to alter in anger management.

Counselling Approach: Awareness and the earnest desire to change are important factors in anger management. It is about learning to behave in the way that we want to behave, not the way we behave by default. The key is: STOP – Think – Then do or speak; and by thinking can we soften the response to the situation that has made us angry.

Anger Management – Claire Pang

Claire Pang    Quals: B Psych Hons, Master of Clinical Psychology

Anger Management: Why do I get angry all the time? Anger is often associated with the frustration of being unable to get what you want from others, or it can be caused from miscommunication. Many people with a history of anger issues often feel stuck and frustrated with themselves and others. Consequently, their aggressive behaviours push their partners, children and friends away.

To deal with anger, some believe that venting out can help them calm down; conversely, others deal with anger by suppressing their frustration. Research shows that outward expression can actually escalate aggressive behaviours that may result in interpersonal relationship problems and also negatively impact other important areas of life.  Unmanaged anger can also cause health problems such as headaches, insomnia, increased anxiety, depression and heart attacks.

Counselling Approach: Claire is a Clinical Psychologist with specialist training in treating depression, anxiety, trauma and complex mental health conditions, and special interest in anger management counseling. It has been an immensely rewarding experience for her to witness clients benefiting from anger management counseling.  They are not only able to use strategies to manage their anger, but also able to develop more fulfilling relationships with significant others.  Claire has experience in helping many individuals with anger problems that cause interpersonal conflicts, poor job satisfaction, relationship strains and threats to individuals’ well-being.
