What will it be like?
It is common for people to experience some initial anxiety over the prospect of participating in a group, and don’t know what to expect. Being in a group offers a safe, supportive environment where you can share your thoughts and ideas, and learn from others experiencing similar challenges. Group participants say they feel less alone, isolated and judged, and that groups help in finding new solutions to dilemmas or problems.
Our groups typically have 8-12 participants. The group facilitators provide information, create discussion, allow for self-reflection, goal setting and learning new skills. You will experience a positive, practical approach that builds on strengths within yourself and in your relationships. Participating in a group program is an effective way to gain the confidence to turn negative habits and cycles into positive ones, manage strong emotions constructively and create the future you want.
- Clarify your problems.
- Gain new perspectives.
- Work through change.
How can it help me?
Through the group, you will gain an understanding of the feelings and thoughts connected to anger and learn effective strategies for dealing with conflict. A pre-group talk is held to ensure the group is right for all participants.
The program can help you understand:
- Past experiences of anger

- Alternative ways to deal with anger and the anger of others
