What are anger management issues?

It is normal to feel anger and frustration from time-to-time in response to various situations. However, it is important to recognise that if you are experiencing outbursts of anger that provoke an extreme response, are triggered very rapidly, or are difficult to cope with or control, it may be that you are suffering with anger management problems.

At Priory Wellbeing Centre Dubai, our exceptional team of psychiatrists and psychologists possess extensive experience in treating people with anger management issues. Our specialists understand that anger issues are triggered and experienced differently in different people, with anger manifesting in unique ways. As such, we pride ourselves on being able to deliver bespoke anger management treatment in Dubai, enabling patients to manage their personal emotions and regain control of their lives.

Anger management in Dubai

At Priory Wellbeing Centre Dubai, we understand that experiencing issues with anger management can result in a number of detrimental consequences and be extremely difficult to cope with. Our expert team of psychiatrists and psychologists are able to provide bespoke anger management treatment in a compassionate, supportive and non-judgemental environment, to help you to manage your anger more effectively.

One of the most widely used methods for treating anger management issues is a psychotherapeutic technique known as dialectical behaviour therapy (DBT). The purpose of DBT is to tackle the dysfunctional thought processes that are contributing to your anger, and teach you new and healthier techniques for effective emotional regulation. DBT has been found to be highly successful in treating patients who typically experience the very intense emotions that are associated with anger management problems.
