Bride To Be Hails Anger Management Course For Saving Her Relationship
7:01am 29th April 2013
A Truro bride-to-be has told Pirate FM anger management saved her relationship.
Natasha Mizon got so wound up she slapped her fiance.
That was the trigger that sent her for looking help.
Now she is one of the first in Cornwall to get treatment on the NHS.
Natasha told Pirate FM: "Words aren't going to do it - and you just don't know how to get them to see your feelings. It just kind of gets demonstrated in a physical way.
"Don't think you're a freak, don't think you're crazy. Just get some help - everyone is angry.
"I was able to use all these processes. I came back and we talked about it calmly.
"He even said to me, 'I'm so proud of you - you've come so far.' Things aren't how they were and we've come so far.
"This course has probably saved our relationship."
Delivered by Outlook South West, a county-wide provider of talking therapies, the short educational-style courses run for five sessions. Initially, they will be taking place in: Hayle, Truro, St Austell, Wadebridge, Liskeard and Saltash.
Kevin Simpson, partner and clinical psychologist with Outlook South West said: “Unfortunately modern life can present us with lots of challenges. Anger is a normal emotion but this course is for people who are concerned that it may be getting out of control.
"Problems with anger can harm our relationships and our work. It can also affect our health; for some people with high levels of anger, it can double the risk of heart attack.”7:01am 29th April 2013
