Anger Management - Helping Children and Teenagers Manage Big Feelings

Evolving Minds Counselling, Menai work with children and adults on the autism spectrum.  We recognise the importance of early intervention and tailor therapy to the needs of each individual.

Early intervention enables children to manage their emotions and communicate their needs.  It also helps identify strategies to help with anxiety and depression, which are common amongst those on the autism spectrum.

Evolving Minds also recognise social skills can be difficult, which is why we provide help navigating relationships.   

 

 

Evolving Minds are also aware some children and teenagers who present as angry may participate in negative self-talk.  Negative self-talk can perpetuate feelings of inadequacy, guilt and shame and chip away at a person's self-esteem.

​​According to Kids Matter "angry feelings often cloud judgment and lead to impulsive or aggressive behaviour rather than thoughtful actions".  By teaching children and teenagers to recognise and name feelings and emotions, we are giving them tools to assert themselves, negotiate and reduce conflict.
