Content: This 2 day training 

  • defines and differentiates between anger and rage
  • makes the link between rage and trauma
  • explores the positive aspects of anger and
  • identifies a wide range of ways in which anger gets distorted
Further, it
  • presents a relational approach and methodologies for working with anger and rage.
  • offers the opportunity to view a demonstration of the approach,
  • skills practice,
  • a supervision slot to discuss a case and
  • opportunities throughout for Q&A.
  • deepens understanding about how a therapeutic relationship alone provides clients with everything they need to address their anger and rage issues.
  • arms participants with up to date neuroscience, positive outcomes in therapy and academic research findings.
An empathic, relational approach will be experienced first hand as the process of the training mirrors the approach being advocated.

Trainer: Sue Parker Hall

Sue is a Certified Transactional Analyst (UKCP registered) and a MBACP (Snr. Accredited) therapist, with over 20 years’ experience. She has lectured on higher education diploma and degree courses (validated by University of Plymouth).

She is the author of “Anger, Rage and Relationship: An Empathic Approach to Anger Management” published by Routledge. 
The book was written with clients and mental health professionals in mind and was the culmination of years of practice and study into the differences between anger and rage and how to work with them.

She has spoken at international conferences.  See her workshops (on this website) on Working With Shame.  She is a supervisor of practitioners (individual and groups) helping a diverse client population.  

Who is this workshop is designed for: Counsellors, psychotherapists, coaches and health workers are welcome to attend this workshop.  The focus will be on one-to-one work with clients. We also allow members of the general public to attend this workshop, should it be relevant to them. 

Equipment you will need: We will use Zoom, so you would need a computer that has good enough internet access to be able to be online, and in a quiet spot where you won’t be disturbed.  It would be preferable if there are no people walking around in the background. An Iphone can be used in an emergency, but we recommend planning on using a laptop or computer.  Tablets also work, though please be aware that they have less functionality in Zoom.  

If this course is full: If your booking is accepted that means there was space for you.  If it is full, email to join the ‘reserve list’.  Then, if anyone drops out we will notify you, if there is a ‘last minute’ place  for you.  We will also let you know when we plan a new date.

Approved for CPD : This course has been approved by NCIP-  National Council Of Integrative Psychotherapists.  This course will give you 12 hours of CPD

Our expectation: Is that you will attend this workshop for the full length of the course, have your video on, your mobile off,  and fully participate.

  • There are some online talks on zoom that allow you to come and go, or to choose not to participate in the exercise and breakout rooms.  This culture has started to creep into our workshops.  We have even had people say they want to leave to go and pick up children from school or walk their dog!  People dropping in and out is very disruptive – especially when there may be group exercises that are planned for the same group to participate in a number of times. 
  • Because of this, we want to be clear about our expectations.  This workshop has been planned with the assumption that you, and everyone else, will attend for the full time.
  • So please be clear, that if you book on this workshop, we expect you to attend for the whole time, to  participate in the breakout rooms and exercises and have your video switched on.
  • Please also put your mobile to one side and on silent – checking your phone or texting will mean that you miss material.  So we request that you only check your phone during breaks.  

Maximum numbersThis workshop will have a maximum of 30 participants

Slides: These will be sent to you AFTER the workshop. 

Handouts: After the workshop you will be asked to fill in a feedback form.  Completing this feedback form will give you a link to further handouts. Please write this link and password down, as you will need these to access the webpage where this comprehensive set of handouts are stored.  These handouts are available for you to download a copy onto your own desktop. You must complete the download within two weeks of the end of the workshop.  We ask you not to share any of the slides, exercises or handouts with other professionals who have not attended the workshop.  But you are welcome to share the occasional handout or page with clients.

Therapists Insurance: By booking on this workshop you confirm that you have sufficient insurance to offer therapy to the public. (We are required by the NCIP, who accredit this workshop, to ask you to confirm this).  If there is any discrepancy please let us know by contacting

Cancellations: Any request to change (eg defer to alternative dates) or cancel your place at a workshop, that is made at less than 21 days before the course start date will be charged in full.  Any cancellation / amendments / requests to defer before 21 days, will be subject to a 12.5% handling charge.

CPD form : A Certificate of Attendance form for Continuous Professional Development for 12 hours will be sent by email once you have filled in the feedback form.  

A great two days that was well paced and full of knowledge and strategies – I feel much better equipped to deal with these issues
