Transforming Anger, A Deep And Natural Approach To Dealing With Anger: is about moving beyond anger management techniques to learn how to live with anger in a healthy way. Anger is an emotion, it is a powerful emotion and one that we often experience. Anger is natural and therefore an emotion which we need to learn how to live with. If this makes sense to you then this course is for you.
One of the difficulties with anger management techniques is that they are generally based in pushing anger away and controlling it (variations of counting to 10). Being able to contain anger is important but when we push something away we give energy to it. Eventually our anger can erupt and create more problems than the difficulty we were trying to avoid.
Anger needs our attention, indeed anger is requesting our attention because it is saying that something needs attended to. However when we approach things through anger we often confuse and complicated the issue. Anger itself is not the problem here , it is the actions and attitudes we take when we are angry which is the problem. So this course is about learning how to contain your anger, listening to your anger, and finding healthy and honest ways of expressing what you are feeling angry about.
The aim of this course is to help you deal with and express anger in a manner which is beneficial for you and your relationships. The course content is structured over 13 sections each taking a week to complete. This does not mean that you will have to wait 13 weeks to feel an improvement is about enabling a deepening of the process rather than just a shift in our thoughts which doesn’t tend to create sustained change.
The course is a mixture of videos, lectures and exercises. An emphasis is placed on self-reflection and developing and deepening your awareness. Each sections builds on the previous section making each section an integral part of the larger whole. Therefore learning takes place at many levels through this building process. Some of this learning is conscious which you will be aware of it and some unconscious. This is a cycle which can be repeated to develop self-knowledge and improve your relationship with anger.
If you are experiencing conflict in your life, either at work, with your spouse or in other relationships and this is something you want to change, then this course is for you. This course may help you change your relationship with anger, and consequently with yourself and other people. This can help you build stronger and more fruitful relationships and live a more peaceful and rewarding life.

Tom Cassidy - Comprehensivist, Education Reformer, Reasonable Polymath, using continuous development frameworks to help people improve all areas of their lives: self-worth, self-belief, goal-achieving, feeling good, achieving sustainable health and deeply fulfilling relationships.
My mantra is: 'Feel Good. Do Stuff.'
Life's not about meditating on the top of a mountain in Nepal, feeling great, achieving enlightenment for yourself...
And it's definitely not about going through life doing things, without having awareness, being busy, achieving a lot but not being mindful of the bigger picture.
It's about both.
Feel good. Do Stuff.
Feel great about yourself, about life, the universe and everything, but do loads of things as well. Have a family, run a business, learn Italian, travel the world, change the world - Do Stuff.
I mean, why not?
I've spent the last 25+ years combining the wisdom of hundreds of years of the study of global philosophies, human effectiveness, modern findings of behavioural science, recent breakthroughs in the understanding of brain physiology and even the results of quantum mechanics into practical, continuous development frameworks for getting things done.
Systems based on practical algorithms of thought and of operation. Algorithms that are easy enough for most people to do just as they are, without having to change any aspect of their life. 'Reasonable Algorithms for Reasonable People.'
In my experience, the most effective continuous development frameworks are those which have duration, cadence and autonomy:
Autonomy - The framework is customisable, adaptable for every participant.
Cadence - The framework has a natural rhythm to it, a cyclic frequency.
Duration - The framework is designed for longitudinal impact and long term growth.
And this framework that I have put together appears to be very robust in its ability to get results, mostly because it requires a very small amount of willpower to make it work. People can stick to it quite effectively.
You still need to do the work. But the willpower you need to get the results is almost certainly the lowest you've ever used for achieving anything in your life, ever.
Please feel free to connect with me however best suits you. I'm always open to exploring ideas either virtually or in person.
All the best
