The first step is remove the shower handset, and then run the shower at your desired setting, and see if the water from the end of the hose is too hot. If it's fine then it suggests that the handset is partially blocked.

These are just some first steps, so please come back to me after you've tried that.

Just to make sure I have the right details, is this your shower?
