When a person has problems managing anger there are several areas I address. First is to stabilize them - if they are burned out, exhausted, living in a situation that constantly arouses anger, we need to address that first. Next, if a reaction is disproportionate to an event, we know there is more going on. The most efficient way I find to identify this is to use a questionnaire to identify "schemas" which are underlying belief systems which are probably being triggered if the person lashes out or withdraws in anger. This helps guide our naming of what is being triggered, connecting with other emotions than anger, and in general regaining control over our behaviour in a way that works.

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.

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.

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 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 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 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
