If you knew a mum who admitted she had a short temper and needed help with anger management, who do you recommend they seek advice from?

Probably a doctor as a first call, just to determine depression or hormonal/chemical imbalance isn't contributing to the issue. If that's all clear maybe a program like PPP to learn behaviour management techniques and/or a counsellor to help find where the anger is coming from, and if there's an unresolved issue or trauma from her past she needs to work through.

GP to rule out medical issues and get a mental health plan.

Thanks so far. I've passed the PPP website onto her as a starting point. I don't think she has mental issues though. Seems pretty 'normal ' and stable. Mainly short tempered with her kids.

Yes - and to get a mental health plan, all she needs to do is go to is go to the GP who will suggest a psychologist (or group of), then make the appointment with the psychologist and return to the GP for a referral (which is the mental health plan). You get either 6 or 10 sessions bulk billed, I believe.

What about a women's clinic? The one we have in town addresses all issues for mums surrounding post partum and early childhood. They have a couple of psychologists and counsellors and I'd say this is such a common issue they probably have classes etc as well as the counselling. They'd at least know where to refer her I'd say.
Or Brighter Futures or some other similar organisation run parenting programs addressing a range of issues....
Our local Anglicare does both parenting programs and anger management programs. Also could google 'Positive Lifestyles Program' see if there are any places running it local to her?
