Anger Control Training Group

Our Anger Control Training course is an eight week course, based in Purley, Croydon. Each session is 1 1/4  hours long. There is a maximum of eight people on each course and we run courses for men, women and mixed groups. It is held at our Pampisford Road premises (up two flights of stairs) on Mondays. Please contact us for course times.

The course is a mixture of teaching and practical homework as you try to put into practice what you have learnt in the week, so that you start to gain control of your anger from the beginning. You need only reveal what you are comfortable with.

This course is Anger Management and more! It looks at why you get angry and how to prevent you from getting to the point of anger.

Our Anger Control Training course is open to nearly everyone. A history of violence does not itself exclude you. We only ask that you come on the course because you want to and not because someone else thinks you should.

Service Definitions

Anger is a valid, healthy emotion. However, many of us learned from a very young age, that anger can be dangerous and destructive. In the words of anger management guru John Lee, "Anger equals pain". As children, it is vital that our angry feelings are accepted by our caretakers. If these feelings are not heard and respected, we carry our resentments into adulthood and project them onto others, especially loved ones, work colleagues and those in authority. As grown ups, most of us fall into two distinct categories of behaviour, affecting both our mental and physical states. This in turn can lead to depression, anxiety, stress, ill health, relationship break-down and loss of job etc.
These are psychological treatments in which improvement in a person's symptoms or wellbeing is achieved by talking with a therapist or counsellor rather than, or as well as, taking medication.
