Workplace Anger management courses for individuals

Is your anger or the anger of a staff member, having a serious effect on your work environment? Is there a looming threat of a costly tribunal or litigation? Are you at risk of losing your job, or losing the services of an otherwise valuable company employee? If so then Anger Management London can help you. We offer a confidential, one to one anger management service to help you manage issues of anger at work.

What are the Causes of Workplace Anger

There are four main causes of workplace anger – stress, Type A personality, a belief that anger gets results, and past issues impacting on current anger. These factors will often overlap with one another in workplace anger.
Stress and Workplace Anger
When we are under stress we become less patient and we experience more frustration and irritability. This can very easily spill over into anger and angry reactions to difficult or challenging people or events. If this is the cause of your anger in your workplace, then we can look at ways that you can become more conscious of your stress levels and manage them and your responses more effectively.
Type A Personality
Type A personality behaviour, according to a theory developed in the 1950s by cardiologists Friedman and Rosenman, is behaviour which is highly competitive and achievement-driven, with a strong sense of time-urgency and impatience. These traits often result in irritation and exasperation with others and sometimes outright hostility. Type B personality behaviour is less focused on achievement and more on enjoyment of the task. Consequently Type B people are usually more relaxed, understanding, accepting and forgiving of others.
The Belief that Anger Gets Results
Perhaps your anger, or the anger of your staff member, stems from a belief that getting angry gets results. In this case, your anger is more consciously employed. You know what you are doing. You’ve noticed that getting angry motivates people to get active and get things done. This may be true to some extent. However, there are often costs to this type of motivation. It can result in low morale, sickness due to stress, absenteeism and high staff turnover. Nowadays, there is also increasing awareness of workplace bullying and it can result in costly litigation. Further, it erodes the quality of communication and workplace relationships, as people will tend to avoid angry people, meaning that you are out of the loop of valuable communication and feedback from others. Which can result in a vicious spiral, with productivity dropping, which results in you getting more angry, and so on . . .
Past Issues Impacting on Current Anger
It may be that your anger is due to past conditioning. Sometimes anger has less to do with what is happening day to day in your workplace, and more to do with what happened in your past. The influence of angry parents can be particularly strong, as when we are growing up we mould and model our behaviour on the behaviour of our parents or significant people in our childhood. Understanding where our patterns of anger come from can be a important step towards changing them.

Workplace Anger Management London – Discreet and Confidential

Daren works one to one with anger management clients. This means that you can explore your issues in a confidential environment, without worrying that personal information will be divulged to others. If Daren needs to give feedback to your employers concerning your progress with your anger management course, this will be of a very general nature – Daren will not divulge anything that you share with him in confidence.

Workplace Anger Management London – How Long is the Course?

The anger management course length is adjusted to your need. You can expect to attend for between 4 and 10 sessions. Each session is 50 minutes long. The number of sessions depends on how deep your issues are and how motivated you are to change. We recommend that to begin with you attend weekly, so that you can get to grips with the issues underlying your anger and make significant changes. After 3, 4 or 5 weeks you can spread sessions out to fortnightly and then monthly if needed. You are free to stop attending anger management sessions with Anger Management London at any point, with no further financial obligation.

Workplace Anger Management London – What will you do during Anger Management Sessions?

During your first session at Anger Management London Daren will ask you to share what has happened that has resulted in your wanting to attend a course of workplace anger management. He will share his approach with you, and explain some of the basic skills he will want you to learn. You will both get a sense of whether you can work together successfully. If you and Daren are both happy after the first session, then you can book some more sessions.

During your ongoing sessions at Anger Management London you will:

– Look at incidents that have happened, both in the past and since the previous session. You will explore what was going on for you as your anger built, and what you might have been able to do differently at different points.

– Look at how you were thinking as your anger built, how that influenced the outcome, and how you can change your thinking.

– Be helped to find other ways to express yourself other than through outbursts of anger.

– Investigate the relationship you have with people with whom you most often experience anger. You will understand what is going on for you in relation to those people and how you might relate to them in a way that reduces your anger.

Workplace Anger Management London – When can sessions be held?

Anger Management sessions are available from 9am to 6pm weekdays, as well as Monday, Wednesday and Friday evenings up till 9pm. Some weekend Anger Management sessions are also available on Saturdays and Sundays. Each session at Anger Management London is for 50 minutes.

Anger Management London – What are the Session Costs?

It may be possible for Daren to visit you at your place of work for sessions. If this is the case, there will be an additional charge to account for Daren’s travel time. This amount will vary depending on where your place of work is located.
