Anger Management Programme

Going on the positive changes anger management programme has been one of the best things I have ever done. I learnt that the reason we act the way we do is due to behaviour we have seen growing up as children. Being 17 years of age I can see how this will most definitely help me in the future. I have learnt my trigger signs of anger and I have been given the tools from this course to stop me from escalating out of control. This course has taught me more about myself than I was ever aware of before hand and now I can look forward to my positive future ahead of me because of the changes I have made due to the programme. I will take from this course the knowledge of how strong foundations in a home environment will ensure stability and positive growth. I would highly recommend this course to anyone because speaking from experience you don’t know until you try. This course can change your life, like it changed mine in a positive way.    C.S


Anger Management testimonials from May to August 2018 Group

Bringing people together with similar life concerns helped me understand who I am.  In general, we all make mistakes in our journey of life, the goal is to accept who we are, learn from our mistakes, and ensure we have a way to manage better in the future.  Amazing programme, enlightening, great facilitator, keep us well together as a team, reaching for the goal.                  M.P


The 12 week anger management course at Pcp has made such a huge impact on my life, learning ways on how to manage my anger has made a massive difference in my work environment and my home life, I can't thank you guys enough.

The anger management has been a life-changing experience.  The programme has taught me so much about myself and in particular what I stand for and what I believe in.  I feel renewed with hope and look forward to a positive future.  Belinda is a powerful facilitator and I attribute my learnings and success from this course to her facilitation, knowledge and interpersonal skills.  I would recommend this to anyone looking for strategies, skills and guidance to manage life...  D.M

I believe this course should be taught as a basic lifeskill.  On this course I have learnt so many skills and also learnt about myself and I generally feel a lot happier and settled with myself.  I would recommend this course to anyone struggling with "Anger" emotion.  I thought I knew what Anger was, but this course has opened my eyes up to what Anger is?, where does it come from?, How do you know your angry?,How can you manage your anger?.  I can't thank Belinda and Te Paea enough for facilitating this course and helping me on my journey.

I thoroughly enjoyed the classes held by Belinda, she is honest, kind, positive & uplifting. From the moment I called her I knew this course would be a positive change in my life & it has been.  My relationship has never been better & I can now recognize & mange my anger alot better.  I would recommend this class to anyone needing to make change about their anger.   S.C

It's been great course with some great methods.  Highly recommend it!

I have been equipped with the necessary tools to be confident in myself that any anger I do experience from now on will be acted on in a way that wont have negative impacts on my husband and children, and my relationships with them.  I feel empowered as a result and know that the changes I am now capable of making have the potential to positively influence so many areas of my life.  I have learnt the importance of taking a holistic approach to anger management and for me personally valuing myself and allowing time for activities that bring enjoyment and fulfilemnt is an aspect of this holistic approach that I will continue to work on.  M.D

Group from June-August

This has been a worthy, excellent happy, fun and valuable 3 months.  I have learnt so much about myself, my anger and my relationship with the people in my life.  I am confident I have the skills to deal with the tough times and the good.  Awesome course, people and Belinda has been amazing.             J.E

Every person from all walk of life should take the time to complete this amazing practical course.  It really makes a difference    I.H

Nobody likes to admit when they are in the wrong, but taking the first step to ask for help is the best thing I could've done for myself and my family.  Reflecting over the past 12 weeks, I can truly say "I'm not the same person who walked through the doors on the first evening".  I have grown as an individual, I have learnt about myself and from others, I have been honest with myself, I have become the person I knew was there.  I can't wait to keep going on this journey.  B.A

On the day Belinda rang to interview me for the position in the class my life changed for the good.  I've spent my life solving issues with aggression and violence in order to control or solve the situation.  I currently have had the opportunity to exercise my new skills in a dangerous violent situation to which I found myself calm relaxed and in control of me, thus being able to keep my son safe to.  G.S

Before starting this course it was clear I had issues with my anger given the situation I was/am in.  Since attending Pcp, learning, practicing and understanding the value of the skills/tools, I had been taught.  I've definitely noticed a change in myself, but also my attitude, self worth and I'm much more motivated to achieve my goals.  B.W

When I first started my anger management programme I was at the lowest point in my life.  Never did I believe a programme could change my life.  The first change was meeting Belinda and having someone believe in me, which also gave me belief in myself.  I felt like I was buried and this programme gave me the tools to dig deep and see all the good in me that I had buried over the years.  I am proud to say this has changed my life and give me the tools to keep making change, I am forever grateful and look forward to my future. Thank you!  G.W

One on Ones  finish December 2019

From attending this course I've learnt alot to do with anger an how to manage it.  I learnt 8 different types of ways to a better outcome in your current situation, being assertive, is when im ok and you are ok.  I liked the way Belinda presented every sessions, with care, confidentiality, clear mind and ready to teach, I like the thought of getting a coke every session.  When I heard I had to attend I didn't want to until after my first sessions because the way Belinda presented everything shocked me. W.M.H

One on one with Belinda has been so amazing for me to find out who I really am and who I need to become as a person, mother & friend.  H.S

This  programme has given me hope in resolving my conflict.  It has changed me in my Attitude because attitude is everything at 14yrs old!  I realise this now. I enjoyed 1 on 1 with Belinda it helps to talk about stuff, I am lucky to have a supportive Wuhan. N.M

I came into the programme without knowing what to expect.  I have received significant amounts of support and understanding from Belinda.  During the course I have learned about assertive communication.  Te Whare Tapa Wha(self-care),8 Step problem solving process, Self control Stopp.  These are valuable skills that can be used beneficially in all aspects of life.  It was an unfortunate incident that;led me to the programme, but it is extremely fortunate that I have been given the opportunity to join the porogramme and get to now Belinda.  I would highly recommend the programme to anyone.   B.L

I came into the course with a open mind and this course was amazing, it helped me out hugely and has taught me ways and techniques to help with my anger problems and also ways to manage myself when I am in a anger filled situation.  This course was well worth it but if you think you can half arse it then keep walking cause its a full on great course which you need to put 100% into to get the fullest out of the course.  I will be recommending this course to family and friends that I feel or see that are having trouble with their anger skills.  W.C.

Feb-June Group (mens) 2020

Coming into the course I was very impartial, an assault charge in 2018 had lead me to finding this course and attending.  Every bone in my body was against it, as I felt strong that this was not what I needed.  As the course progressed and I came to understand what it was all about, my feelings changed drastically!  12 weeks later (with a break during covid) I have met,conversed, and understood life from several different - very real people.  I am confident to say I have gained a very invaluable experience here and will never forget the lessons learnt.  Belinda has been fantastic through out and has never hesitated in giving advice, support and knowledge on the situations that lead me to the programme.  It was an incredibly positive journey.  J.E

An excellent supportive and encouraging programme and group.  Very proactive and specific material to anger.   K.S
