Every person, at some point in their life, grapples with anger. We understand that anger, in and of itself, is part of the adaptive fear response system, flight/fight. While it’s a natural emotion, unchecked or misunderstood anger can lead to strains in personal and professional relationships. At Ian Robertson Therapy Group, we provide specialized therapy to help individuals navigate, understand, and learn to manage their over-responsive ‘anger-fight’ responses effectively.
Delving Deep Deep into Anger’s Roots
Anger can stem from various sources – past traumas, unhealed attachment wounds, anxiety, depression, familial conflicts, or daily or compounding stressors. Recognizing the underlying root causes is the first step toward crafting effective coping strategies.

The nervous system’s fight response, which presents as anger, doesn’t exist in isolation. Often, it’s entangled with other emotional and psychological challenges. We offer one-to-one counselling for a range of anger-related issues, including:
- Depressive Disorders
- Anxiety Disorders
