Anger Management Therapy in Wolverhampton & West Midlands
Anger Management involves either Therapy or Counselling so that you can more easily cope with angry feelings that may affect your work or personal relationships.
At Wolverhampton Hypnotherapy we focus on Therapeutic management using Hypnotherapy combined with Psychotherapy
Everybody experiences Anger at some time or another and it is in fact a normal human response.
Some people, however, cannot control their emotions and uncontrolled rage, or anger that is vented in the wrong “direction”, can have negative consequences on relationships.
There are many “triggers” that can lead to anger, including some of the following:
- Grief at losing a loved one
- A perception of injustice
- Sexual frustration
- Withdrawal from some drugs
- Feeling threatened
- Believing that you are being ignored
- Believing that you are not being taken seriously
- Past Experiences that have been processed in an “un-helpful” way
People who have this problem may find that they experience anger with increasing frequency and begin to lose control over their reactions to what might otherwise be “normal” events.
If it does does get out of control it can often lead to serious problems with friends, colleagues and sometimes create conflict with the Law.
At worst, when Anger clouds the judgement completely, it can lead people into physical violence and all of the problems that go with “lashing out”.
Mental health surveys suggest that a third of adults are aware that they can often experience “unexpected anger” and just as many know someone who has an anger management problem.
Signs & Symptoms of Poor Anger Management
As mentioned above, the “Angry Response” is normal in certain circumstances.
When you get angry the body releases Cortisol and Adrenalin into the bloodstream which are designed to increase your heart rate, quicken the breathing and generally prepare the body for the “Freeze, Flight or Fight” response.
This limbic (“hard-wired”) response is designed to deal with a real threat and under these circumstances your “rational thinking” processes are “put-on-hold” until the danger has subsided.
Of course, people with Anger problems may unjustifiably perceive that a threat is present when in fact there is not – it is just a mis-perceived threat!
Your belief systems can distort reality and easily “perceive” almost any situation as a threat leading to the inappropriate response of anger.

Anger Management Testimonial
I come from an engineering background so was sceptical at first, choosing not to do background research as I preferred to have an open mind about the techniques used.
Sessions were held in a comfortable environment and I found myself able to truly relax, with the suggestible techniques performed by Joan.
Each time I went was very rewarding and I feel a lot more relaxed now, able to better understand how to control possible triggers.
On reflection of the individual sessions I truly felt afterwards that I had genuinely been hypnotised, it’s very hard to explain.
I would certainly seek Joan’s expert care and professionalism again, and I highly recommend her skills to anyone.
