EMDR therapy can help you to get out of this frustrating cycle by allowing you to feel the pain you are running from, develop compassion for yourself, and learn to accept and love yourself. This sounds simple but the process takes time and dedicated lifestyle changes. The rewards are a happier, less addictive lifestyle with more pleasure and less pain.EMDR therapy can be very helpful in recreating new networks toward changing your negative thoughts and feelings. In effect, you become less afraid of feeling sorrow and pain, because you trust that joy and contentment are on the other side.

Anger effects many areas of life, and can be the source of a great many life problems. Managing your anger requires first understanding it, it is a signal that something is wrong, and second learning the skills that will allow you to express yourself in ways that will give you the best chances of expressing your needs, and having them met without damaging important relationships.

Anger is a human emotion, and everyone experiences it. The problem comes when we act on our anger in an inappropriate or unhealthy way. My work involves helping clients to identify and change thoughts and behaviors that contribute to their anger and to find more positive ways of expressing anger. We explore relaxation and stress relieving techniques to help the client manage stress. We also may explore underlying emotions and feelings and work on healing any emotional wounds. If the client is in a relationship, I will work with the couple to help them connect and change the dynamics in their relationship that contribute to the anger.

First I help the client to understand the purpose of their anger. There are usually feelings underneath, such as, hurt, sadness, feeling betrayed. Anger is a warning that something is wrong. We explore other ways to handle the issue without acting out the anger. Many people are impulsive and will need to change this habit to learn new ways to deal with their feelings. Groups can be very helpful. It is important to learn how acting out anger affects other people especially those you are close to.

I have run anger management programs for many years. I have an eight week program to assist clients to experience and express their anger and other feelings in ways that are healing. I have also provided couples with ways to communicate their anger so they feel heard and better understood. Often times people are feeling sad or hurt but can only feel safe with the feeling of anger. I will give you tools to express all your feeling to feel calmer and peaceful.

I do not help clients to "manage" anger. I help them to understand its source and to use it productively rather than destructively. Sometimes it covers up some other feelings that need to be dealt with, and sometimes it is simply directed at the wrong person. By coming to understand your anger better you keep it from making problems and use it to find solutions.

I have nearly 20 years experience running anger management groups and working with individuals and couples on this issue. Anger is aggressive. The aggression of anger protects us by pushing away and hurting others before they hurt us. As a result, anger problems always created damage our lives and emotional distance from those we care about. You will learn to manage your feelings in ways that undo the damage your anger has caused. Your life will function in healthier ways, without the chaos your anger has caused. And you will move closer to the people who matter, rather than dealing with the fallout and distance your anger has caused. Both you and those close to you will benefit greatly.

Managing anger is another form of controlling your autonomic nervous and limbic systems. It begins with education, so you can learn how those systems work in your body. Then, some techniques to intervene and change the course of bodily and emotional reactions. The most rewarding part comes afterwards, when a person can allow the experience of other emotional states as well, for this is when they really develop.
