I have broad & particular experience with mental health issues with adults and with children. I have also taken intensive life skills coach training – relevant to group work, rehabilitation, attending to feelings such as anger, handling stress, and so on – that is also fitting with core issues and basic needs. I think that anger is a problem when inappropriately expressed but it often reflects unmet needs. I am influenced by reality therapy and believe that people are responsible for their actions. Yet validation & acknowledgement are also important. I integrate art therapy, in particular, because symbolic language allows safe expression of feelings & promotes resilience & new ways to cope.

Anger has an important message: we are hurting. I help clients learn what's needed to feel healthy and whole without relying on anger. Anger responses can feel very deep rooted but brain science tells us that these responses can be changed - don't despair! If you are motivated to learn new ways of relating to yourself and others, you can! I assist clients to value the messages underneath the anger, and to increase self-compassion and gentle connections with others. I bring you a choice of evidence-based options for peace, safety and growth. I support you toward building new positive ways of expression and making social connections.

Professional Art Therapist & Canadian Certified Counsellor

Amy Mackenzie's approach to Anger Management in Art Therapy allows the client to both express the anger in visual form with art materials but also to explore the various aspects of anger with image-making and words. Different aspects of anger that will be addressed will be anger as a substitute for other, less desirable emotions, the benefits and consequences of anger, emotional triggers and the practice of alternate responses. Amy can guide the client through art therapy relaxation techniques, methods that can be continued at home. Exploration of the roots of the anger impulse (personal and family history) can also be undertaken, leading to greater self-knowledge.

Some people need to learn skills to learn to manage their anger. They need to learn how to delay gratification, how to distract themselves from angry thoughts, remove themselves from situations that are triggering them, etc.
However, with over 30 years experience as a therapist I have found that often the problem is not so much managing the anger as answering questions like "Why am I so angry?" or "What about this situation is triggering my anger?" Talk therapy is ideally suited to looking into these questions (as well as teaching coping skills to handle the anger).
If you have been told you have anger problems or are worried you might have anger problems consider calling for an assessment

Grey Matters International and the work of Kevin J. Fleming, Ph.D approaches issues of anger management in a very humane yet fresh perspective. You see, anger is a normal emotion but it is the valence (intensity) as well as the coupling choice of what one does with this that is the problem. Telling someone to "not" do it or modifying behavior with a trite psychological plan that only breeds a compliant response is not the way to change anger. Brainwave optimization is a new cutting edge technology that allows one to rewire circuitry responsible for reactivity driving the anger.
