I have vast experience and wisdom with regard to the understanding of and in the treating of all aspects of anger, rage and fury. One of the real benefits of a client learning about and facing their anger is that they learn that anger itself is not the culprit. It is a natural and functional emotion. The real problem is what they do with their anger...how they articulate their anger. Many clients come into my practice believing that anger itself is bad. I enable clients to distinguish between "anger at" and "anger with" and "anger about". Clients become aware that anger is about something going on in their own self and not so much about projecting it onto another person.
Abundant Living Counselling Group
Various locations in Ottawa, Ottawa, ON K2G 0G3
Clients presenting with anger issues have a personal history, family-of-origin history in which anger has been distorted and thus de-legitimated in some way. To be effective, any clinical approach to this emotion must include identifying and deconstructing the foundational components buried and sanitized in the client’s subconscious mind, yet continue, repeatedly to constrain their growth. Effective unravelling of personal history benefits the client in terms of understanding, self-awareness, and self-forgiveness.

Anger is part of the human experience. Its purpose is to protect and to defend. However, sometimes the way in which we express our anger (or avoid expressing our anger) can lead to difficulty or pain. How we express our anger can have a profound impact on our social relationships and how we feel about ourselves. There are many ways in which anger manifests itself in a person's life. I begin my work with clients by assessing the nature and origins of their anger. I then utilize emotionally and somatically oriented techniques to support clients to shift to more adaptive means of anger expression.

Anger is a friend in that it provides us with valuable information about ourselves and our surroundings. It can be understood as our emotional reaction to believing that either we or another have somehow been mistreated. it is most problematic in its expression rather than it its experience. Problematic expressions of anger present in varied forms, from passive forms to expressions of rage. We can learn to promote understanding of the meaning of our anger and the secondary emotions it triggers as well as how to develop alternative coping strategies.

We can help you manage your anger in more healthy ways. Anger is an emotion, and like any other emotion, it is not "bad". What we do with our anger is what can cause pain to ourselves and to those around us. We all have the need to feel understood. Often, anger presents itself when we feel controlled or feel we do not have choices. We can help you learn to recognize what makes you angry and help you learn how to meet your needs in more productive ways.

I help clients unlock the negative cycle that anger and its accompanying behaviors may cause. In an empathic and supportive environment I help the client understand where the underlying feelings and thoughts originate and loosen the stranglehold that this cycle previously held. Together with cognitive and behavioral strategies we develop new and healthy coping methods to manage these emotions more productively.

Anger is often mistaken as a negative emotion when in actuality it is not. It is what we do with our anger that often leads to problems. Repressed anger turns into depression and depression leads to the loss of hope. If you were raised by a violent and angry parent, that anger is often passed down through generation no. Many people learn to deal with their anger by using other substances such as drugs and alcohol but these only make matters worse. The arts are powerful tools to help us resolve anger from our past and learn how to forgive. Finding lasting change and peace is the goal and each session is uniquely based on the interests and needs of the client.

Anger and emotions management has long been an area of interest and specialization for me. Dating back to my undergrad I have studied anger as learned behavior, biological predisposition, and unfortunately as an outcome of childhood trauma. Men are taught that if they feel and express genuine emotions that they are whimps, among other pejorative terms. Anger and emotions management iwith me is a gentle supportive experience that coaches clients to experience and express healthy emotions. We will unpack and reframe past toxic behaviors, and experiences and learn healthy assertiveness. It is NOT judgement or contemptuous. Rather it is a supportive personal growth and change proces

Counsellors at Elim, in addition to knowing anger management techniques, are trained in getting to the root of anger. Clients not only learn how to control anger but also come to understand what is the emotional wound behind the tendency to be angry. Our approach not only controls the anger but help clients heal from the psychological pain that might be driving the anger. Many of our clients report that once they have dealt with painful issues of the past, they become much more at peace with themselves and with others.
