Feelings of frustration, irritability and anger can be normal emotions felt in response to life situations. However, these can become a problem when they are triggered far too rapidly and provoke an extreme response, or are difficult to cope with.

At Priory, we understand that everyone is different and presenting issues of anger can vary from person to person. This is why we ensure that everyone has a unique treatment plan tailored to their needs, with the type and length of anger management treatment depending on the individual's circumstances and the severity of the condition.

How do I know if I have anger management issues?

If you are seeking treatment for anger management, you may be experiencing physical expressions of anger beyond the usual frustrations and irritability felt at times by all of us. You may have also experienced one or more of the following behaviours:

  • Physical expressions of anger (e.g. punching objects)
  • Finding it difficult to calm down
  • Breaking objects
  • Having many arguments
  • Making unfounded accusations

Treatment for anger management

One form of therapy that we recommend for anger issues is dialectical behaviour therapy (DBT). This comprises a mixture of group based skills and individual therapy which promote emotion regulation. You will begin to understand your anger and moods more effectively and become more tolerant of distress.

Priory offers a Free Telephone Consultation, for further information call today on: (+971) 4 245 3800 or submit an enquiry form in confidence. We will provide you with details on all our treatments and offer help on how to manage your mental health at a time that suits you.
