What the experts say

"Anger can be useful, but out of control it can lead to family breakdown and health problems," says Kathryn Hill from the Mental Health Foundation. Its 2009 report Boiling Point showed 28% of adults were worried about how angry they sometimes feel, and 32% had a friend or relative with problems dealing with anger. "Chronic intense anger is linked with heart disease, stroke, depression, self-harm, substance abuse, colds and flu, higher stress levels and negative relationships, such as parental abuse."

The average Briton flies into a rage four times a day, and one in ten of us claims to have been in an accident caused by road rage.

What previous participants have said

“To express my emotions and get them out – I have spent 43 years bottling things up and this programme has shown me how to let them out

“It has given me a viewpoint about what life is all about – a way to move forward… it has changed me”

“My girlfriend has noticed a difference and arguments are kept under control, I have gone from shouting and screaming to explaining things”

“Emotional awareness has really helped, I am reflecting in the morning how I feel when I wake up grumpy, really useful at the moment”

“I surprised myself how I dealt with conflict – something has shifted”

“This work makes me feel very uncomfortable, butterflies in my stomach – I don’t want to go there but I need to”

“Coming on this course is life-changing”

“ I couldn’t be happier, the assertive thing is really working”

“Assertiveness is like magic”

“I feel more alive and more confident”

“I now sit down and discuss problems instead of shouting and getting angry”

“The kids have noticed that I don’t shout so much”

“I’m taking more responsibility for my behaviour”
