Lots of us struggle to manage our anger. The COVID-19 pandemic has meant that our ordinary ways of coping with the stresses of life have been challenged, compromised, and in some cases totally removed. If you are unable to manage your anger then it can have very serious consequences for you and your family. Often people seek help either because of self-harm or putting others at risk.
Peer Counseling can be an effective alternative to therapy for people who suffer from anger management issues. Finding techniques to cope with your anger can be a long drawn out process - a peer counselor can help you find effective solutions that have worked for them and help you understand what triggers your anger. One key aspect of anger management is that it encourages you to understand your triggers and learn new ways to cope. A conversation with a trained peer counselor is a safe, private space where you can do this without judgement.
