Season 5, Episode 11 – Dr Emily

We all get angry. Some of us show our anger and some of us suppress it, but at the end of the day, we’re all susceptible to being angry. In this episode, Dr Emily goes into the many aspects of anger – how it can show up in our lives, how it affects us and the people around us, and of course, what we can do about it.
