This Is Our Story

It’s been a long road.

The British Association of Anger Management was launched in 1997 as a direct response to a vast need for anger management services severely lacking at the time. This was initially driven out of personal need as much as it was a response to the continual public request we were receiving from our London-based therapy centre, Room For Growth, at the time. To this day, we believe that anger management services remain lacking and each year we find ourselves committed to doing this work.

Having initially trained in the States in anger management, we returned to the UK and combined therapeutic processes from a range of different models bringing, what we believe, to be the best programme available in the country. Over the years our influences have included primarily person-centred psychology, CBT processes and psycho-dynamic work. We are continuously involved in this work and investigate any new developments and trainings that arise. Hence, as a result, we have come to recognise the need to broaden our perspective again and include the significant material of Mindfulness training and so, Mind Your Anger is born.

Over the years, we have explored different avenues to make anger management accessible across the country. In 2010, we launched the Beating Anger Franchise model training anger coaches across the UK to facilitate our unique method of training. Whilst the Franchise model proved to be ineffective we continue to train professionals in our Aggression Prevention Training model. Whilst our head office is based in West Sussex, we aim to offer courses in: East Grinstead, London, Guildford, Bath, Bristol, Birmingham, Derby, Sheffield and Glasgow. Please view our course dates page for a full diary of events.

We remain being the only UK centre of expertise dedicated to delivering support and programmes in all aspects of anger, stress and conflict management. Our courses are available for the general public, young people, government bodies, corporations, the educational sector, personnel / H.R management, trainers, counsellors and anyone dealing with their own or another’s anger.

We believe we have something for everyone. From individual support, workshops, seminars, bespoke packages through to career professional development training with certification as well as online programmes.

Having authored two books over the years called ‘Beating Anger’ and ‘Mindfulness and the Art of Managing Anger’, our involvement with this work and commitment remains steadfast. We are recognised as the leading body in the UK for anger management and we do ongoing work with the Ealing Borough of London, Probation Services, Court Services, HR Departments and Social Services. In an effort to continuously educate the public we are often involved in the media, contributing to press articles as well as documentaries.

Mad About Miscommunication

    Miscommunication or crossed-wires can cause anger. This is because we as humans do not like to feel like we are misunderstood. However, it is very important to look at the other person’s perspective in any given situation. It may be that you need to improve the way that you communicate your feelings to your friends and family. This may mean that you need to analyse your feelings alone or with a therapist before you bring up the issue with your friend or partner. As feelings are subjective, it is sometimes very hard for other people to see the reasons behind your behaviour. This means that unless you explain the reasons behind the hurt, the upset and the anger, that they are never going to understand where you are coming from. When dealing with someone who is expressing their feelings it is imperative that you do not invalidate their feelings and when you, yourself are expressing your feelings, point out that you do not appreciate anyone who attempts to invalidate yours. The other person is not you and therefore has no idea what you are feeling. The only way that the other person is going to realise how much they have hurt you is through you communicating and explaining to that person what they did wrong and how it made you feel. This then gives them a chance to explain their motives and what drove them to the behaviour; more often than not the person didn’t intend to hurt you or didn’t even realise that their actions would hurt your feelings. Miscommunication between men and women happen frequently...

Why parents are getting angrier: ‘Children are bored out of their skulls with real life’

  “It’s hard to know the difference between parenting and bullying,” admits Matt, father of two and one of a growing number of parents seeking help to control what they see as unacceptable levels of anger towards their children. Matt is an articulate and successful self-employed businessman in his 40s. After he split up from their mother five years ago, his two sons, then 11 and 14, started to act up by answering back, skipping homework, drinking and taking drugs. It marked the start of a phase of intense anger for Matt, who eventually sought help. “I have on a few occasions grabbed my eldest son by the scruff of his neck and shouted in his face. I couldn’t understand why they don’t do what I want them to do. Even now they make me question my skills as a parent.” He’s not alone. Over two decades, Mike Fisher has seen first-hand the effect of anger on children and their parents. Since setting up the British Association of Anger Managementin 1999, he has worked with tens of thousands of people, helping them to manage and understand their anger. For the past 13 years he has also delivered one-day workshops specifically aimed at parental anger, for Ealing council in west London. The course is always heavily oversubscribed. “We always have to turn people away and put them on a waiting list for the next one,” says Kate Subanney, Ealing’s parent commissioner, whose idea it was to get Mike involved. The parents she sends his way have all been referred to her by social services, the NHS, police, or solicitors, but...

Mind Your Mindset: LET IT GO

    “Every day we have plenty of opportunities to get angry, stressed or offended. But what you’re doing when you indulge these negative emotions is giving something outside yourself power over your happiness. You can choose to not let little things upset you” Joel Osteen It is true. Every day we have opportunities to get angry, when driving to work in a pleasant mood and you are suddenly cut up by an inconsiderate driver or working for the boss who is forever demeaning you or your co-worker who is trying to pass off your ideas as their own. There will always be something in your day that has the potential to throw you off track. But that is all it is: potential. You have the power over your own happiness and you have the power to make the decision and just let it go. Feeling angry is appropriate if someone has done something to hurt you out of malice. This is when you need your better judgement to decide whether that person had the intention of causing you harm. If the answer is no, then you need to make the conscious decision to let it go. Sometimes we ask advice from others but then find ourselves fighting off criticism or comments from a colleague or a friend. Stop and think to yourself, “is this person’s intention to cause me harm?” The colleague may be trying to help you impress your boss and your friend may just be trying to help you improve your relationship. Either way you need to assess people’s intentions before you blow your fuse. You...
