About our services
Why Anger Management is different at AMIA.
People are evaluated before and after the course of anger management to gage change.
The Anger Management Mind Map Psychological Evaluation tool provides people with an 8 page statistical report highlighting strengths and areas that need to be developed.
Based on the above report an individual program is developed to address problematic areas first.

The program at AMIA is functional and outcome driven in nature.
If people implement strategies recommended by AMIA then their level of anger should reduce.
It also prepares people to undertake marriage counselling as it promotes safety within the relationship.
It is committed to trying to enhance and assist couples to have the best partnered relationship they can.
