What does the app do?

AIMS for Anger Management is for people who feel they are struggling to manage their anger. The app is split into 4 main sections:

  • Tools: There are short audio or self-guided interventions such a deep breathing, muscle relaxation, thought stopping and time out that you can access at any time when you are faced with an immediate anger issue.
  • Learn: Short articles that teaches you about anger, the triggers and warning signs for your anger and the aggression cycle. There is also advice that teaches you to better manage your anger by creating an anger control plan.
  • Anger log: Helps you to record incidents where you got angry and the situations surrounding your anger to get better insight into your anger cycle.
  • Anger control plan: You can personalise your anger control plan, focusing on your goals, triggers, warning signs and the strategies you find effective.
