About me

Are you struggling with anger issues? Anger can cause us problems with our relationships, our emotional & physical health. Learning to recognise, understand and diffuse your anger can improve your mental & physical health.

Managing your anger effectively will improve the relationships in your life - whether with others, self or the environment you live in. Angry relationships can cause us immense distress, confusion and can be highly destructive.

I'm Yasmin & I Can Offer Support To Help You Move Forward. If any of the above sounds familiar, then we can work together to understand the overwhelming feelings that can sometimes leave us crippled or angry and begin to untangle your thoughts and emotions until you once again feel in control of your life. I will teach you effective coping strategies to help you recognise, understand & diffuse your anger.

I am available online and from my private practice in Wetherby, Leeds, West Yorkshire.

  • I specifically work with relationships and anger.
  • I am the creator of The Angry Tent & The R.U.D Process - tools to help manage anger effectively.
  • I Specialise In Supporting Clients Who Want To Understand Themselves Better. Who Want To Revolutionise The Relationships In Their Lives. Who Dream Of Finding Clarity On Their Direction, Life Purpose Or Future.
  • I provide counselling & psychotherapy for individuals & couples. I also facilitate online group therapy for clients wanting to improve their relationship with " Anger".
  • My next online 8 Week Program "Breaking The Anger Cycle" begins November 17th 2020. Its 8 x 2hour small group sessions. Email me for more information.
  • Relationships can be stressful to deal with, especially when trying to work out acceptable boundaries or forgive or trying to repair damaged relationships.  Or when trying to remove destructive or risky, self harming one's out of our lives.
  • Or perhaps you put others thoughts and feelings before your own? Knowing deep down this is not what you want? This can be a very lonely & isolating place to be in, where you may feel misunderstood or unable to move forward. These relationships are problematic if they are destructive or prevent us from enjoying life full.
  • I am very interested in the many types of relationships we have and how they affect our everyday lives. The reality is we cannot avoid relationships. Problems with relationships in our lives can leave us feeling misunderstood, anxious, angry or depressed.

Doing Things a Different Way

I provide a safe, empathetic  space where you can explore your difficult feelings with the consideration they deserve.  You won't find me telling you what to do.  It's more about me supporting you in discovering your own understanding of your problems - with a new refreshed awareness.

The benefits of what I can offer you:

  • Change The way you do angry
  • support in a non-judgmental environment.
  • help you to reflect and take stock of our emotions.
  • teach you effective coping strategies to manage anger.
