Anger Management For Women
Anger is a natural emotion you experience when something doesn’t go as planned or someone contradicts what you think is “right.” People of all ages and personalities experience anger but how we respond to it varies greatly from person to person.
When anger becomes an issue, you may find yourself holding in negative thoughts, taking your negativity out on others, and in some cases, even acting impulsively or doing something you are ashamed of. For women, you may have challenges setting boundaries in relationships, which may contribute to your angry feelings. This is when you need strategies to effectively express your anger.
The Women and Anger Workshop provides hands-on ways to deal with anger so you can have positive relationships and address conflict in a constructive and healthy way.
Who can attend?
This class is open to anyone who identifies their gender as female and is aged 18 or over, and is interested in learning more about healthy ways to express anger and resolve conflict.
If you don’t see yourself as being part of a group, you can also book a private class.
Our workshops are intended for adults. We do not offer childcare.
What will you learn?
You will learn how to address anger as a normal, healthy emotion by understanding:
- The underlying emotions connected with anger in women
- Your own triggers for anger
- Effective ways to deal with and express anger
- Ways to set healthy boundaries in relationships

By the end of the session, you will feel more comfortable:
