Anger Management


What Causes Anger?

Anger is our natural response to things we perceive as threatening. Your body releases adrenaline, your heart beat quickens and blood pressure increases, and your muscles react.

When you don’t manage your anger in a healthy way it becomes a problem for you and those around you.

There are common triggers for anger which revolve around being wronged, ignored, or treated badly. As an athlete, you have unique anger triggers due to the heightened adrenaline and emotions that are a part of what you do. It is not uncommon for the emotions of athletes to spill over into the other areas of their lives.

I can help you manage your emotions and live a happier, more productive life… both on and off the field.
