My approach to Anger Management is, most definitely, Cognitive Behavioral. Aside from sharing with the clients the various strategies that can be used for anger management, I teach the clients how to get rid of the underlying causes of anger, to begin with. Discussing the different mental mistakes that most of us make and teaching how to correct those mental mistakes empower people in realizing that we do have control over how we may want to feel.

Anger is an emotion that is expressed when something/someone needs to be protected. It gets us in gear. When it feels that anger is out of control, it is useful to understand it's function and guide it to be productive rather than destructive. Those who are the angriest have been treated unfairly by their family or society, and they don't know how to make things right. I will provide tools to help you cope with the events in your life that have created such anger, and help you express your emotions and communicate in a way where you will be more likely to be listened to.

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.

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.

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.

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.

It is by helping the client see the responsibility they must personally assume in tackling their own anger. Gaining greater awareness of what might be the costs whether it is physiological or relational is highly significant. Learning to defuse the anger and aggression and allow for a cooling down phase. Examining carefully those triggering thoughts of ours while learning new ways of challenging them. carefully those triggering thoughts of ours while learning new methods for challenging them.

Anger is just one of a wide range of emotions that we experience. It is often a way of coping with feelings of helplessness, vulnerability, or disappointment. It can be a signal that that your needs are not being met, and an opportunity to make positive changes. Anger that is not controlled, however, brings pain to everyone. I help clients to understand where their anger comes from and teach them Cognitive Behavioural strategies for managing it.

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
