Anger Management Program

angerAnger is considered a natural human emotion. We all experience it from time to time, but when does it start to become destructive? Ask yourself the following:
 

Do you feel that you get angry frequently or at “the little things”?

Do you often shout in anger or frustration?

Do you throw things or slam doors when angry?

Are you physically or verbally abusive when angry?

Do you see others cry or feel sad after as a result of your anger?

Do others tell you that you have difficulty controlling your anger?

 
If your answer is “Yes” to 1 or more of the questions above, then anger may be significantly interfering with the quality of your life or affecting those around you.
 
We don’t want you to just “manage” your anger. We want you to be in in control of it. In our 12-week program at NKS Therapy, you will learn the fundamentals of what anger is and how you can control and eventually move past your anger.
