Our Story - Who am I?
My name is Yasmin I'm the creator of The Angry Tent. I am a qualified counsellor & psychotherapist in private practice in Yorkshire. I have a genuine desire to create social change and contribute in helping society improve our mental health and live harmonious lives.
I guess my interest stems from my personal experiences of anger - knowing how destructive growing up around anger, rage, aggressive behaviour and violence can be. So as an adult I became the type of person who "didn't do angry".
What I didn't realise my silent, internalised way was a different just as damaging way of doing "angry". It had by then made me physically ill. Fortunately through therapy and years later during my training as a therapist I was able to understand and make peace with "my angry".
Now I want to communicate the Angry Tent™️ tool across communities and for generations to come and create real social change by changing the way society does angry.
How The Angry Tent™️ Works
The Angry Tent™️ is a therapy tool which supports individual's and communities recognise how unhelpful anger affects the choices we make and the stress & trauma it can cause our everyday lives.
Using the R.U.D process™️ The Angry Tent™️ tool supports individuals and communities explore doing angry a healthier way.
While anger is an emotion and aggression is a type of behaviour, the two are often seen as one. This viewpoint is often cited as a reason why underlying entrenched anger goes largely untackled while aggressive behaviour is punished.
A related factor is that people with unhelpful anger often fail to recognise their anger as a problem, or if they do, they are reluctant to seek treatment for it, because they feel ashamed. This is backed up by the Mental Heath Foundation’s survey results (10)
One of our key objects is to make the subject matter approachable. Research tells us that that people with anger issues often fail to recognise their anger as an issue, or if they do, they are reluctant to seek treatment for it, because they feel ashamed.
