Anger help with the Thrive Programme in Wolverhampton
Anger management involves the techniques of either Counselling or ‘Training’ so that you can more easily cope with angry feelings that may affect your work or personal relationships.
At Thrive with Paul we help people develop much better anger management strategies using the Thrive Programme.
Everybody experiences Angry feelings at some time or another and it is in fact a normal human response.
Some people, however, cannot control their Anger and if it is vented in the wrong “direction”, can have negative consequences on relationships.
We have found that people will “point” their anger in one of two fundamental directions, (1) outwardly towards other people or (2) inwardly, at themselves.
Clearly, the potential to cause “damage” exists in both situations, but directing your anger at other people is more likely to cause you “social” or ‘personal’ problems whilst turning anger inwardly on yourself is only likely to ruin your own life!
Triggers for Anger
There are many “triggers” that can lead to Angry outbirsts, including some of the following:
- Grief & Bereavement
- Sexual Frustration
- Drug Withdrawal
- Feeling Threatened
- Feeling Ignored
- Not Being Taken Seriously
- Repressed Emotional Experiences
People who have Anger Management problems 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 Anger 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.
When Anger is focused on the “self” it can have a very debilitating affect on the level of self-esteem as well as self-confidence.
Symptoms and Signs of Poor Anger Management
As highlighted above, the “Anger Response” is normal in the appropriate circumstances.
When you become 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 – often called a “cognitive distortion”.
Your “belief systems” can easily distort an event so that you can “perceive” almost any situation as a threat leading to the inappropriate response of anger.

The Thrive Programme for Anger Problems
The Thrive Programme is unsurpassed at helping people with ‘problems’ identify and then change their limiting belief systems.
This multi-session course utilises the very latest findings in cognitive psychology and neuroscience research to help a person to understand how a limiting belief may be formed in the first place, through either ‘learned social behaviours’ or by the accumulation of ‘evidence’ based experiences that provide the robust foundations of those belief systems.
Remarkably, it turns out that what we consider to be the ‘truth’ about the ‘way the world works’ amounts to nothing more than what we ‘believe’ to be true rather than what actually is!
The Thrive Programme for Anger will help you to gain a greater level of understanding behind the reasons why you believe Anger is a problem that you cannot solve on your own and then go on to help you do exactly that!
