Anger Management? It can be difficult to admit that your anger causes you problems, and if you do find the courage it is very difficult to find help. More than half the people surveyed (58%) in the Mental Health Foundation report (2008) stated that they would not know where to go for help. Only 13% of those who did acknowledge their anger problems had looked for help, and they had tended to approach health-care professionals as the first step.
We launched our Anger Management Courses and Classes back over ten years ago, in 2005. We never imagined that we would get the response we did. Far more people expressed interest and registered for classes and courses than we anticipated. Since then evidence has come to light to support what we had discovered, that problem anger is very widespread.
This report, Boiling Point, by the Mental Health Foundation (MHF) in 2008 and based on a sample of almost 2000 people all over the country, states that more than 1 in 4 people worry about how angry they sometimes feel, 1 in 3 people say that they have a close friend or family member who has difficulty controlling their anger, and 1 in 5 say that they have ended a relationship or friendship because of how the other person behaved when they were angry. This makes problem anger a very common issue.
However if you decide you want some help with your anger management you will find there is very little statutory help available. GPs report that they have few options to offer patients who come to them with problem anger, although around 90 published research studies have concluded that for adults, adolescents and children successful treatment is possible. What statutory support there is, is concentrated at the severe end of the spectrum, when problem anger has already led people into trouble at home, at school, at work, or even with the criminal justice system. Our aim is to provide people who acknowledge their anger and seek help at a much earlier stage with support, understanding and effective anger-management strategies.
On our courses you get to benefit from the experiences of everyone who has ever completed the course – our past participants share the tips and techniques that worked for them and we constantly update the course materials making them ever more relevant in today’s climate whilst not straying from our sound principles of anger management, namely our exclusive ‘ETU 3-Step Anger Management’ approach.
When we first offered the course our plain-speaking, no-nonsense and no-psycho-babble approach seemed to provide something quite new and different in a market-place full of dull powerpoint lectures and fake experts. It still does.
Tutoring by properly qualified professionals gave feedback scores from early participants of an average 93% and an effectiveness of 89.5% 6 months after taking the course. Nearly 9/10 people said that taking our anger management course had made a dramatic difference to their lives.
Citizen Coaching Anger support is based on real life experience from over 20 years of working face-to-face with anger management and relationship problems at the ‘coalface’ of conflict and relationship problems.
