Marriage & Family & Individual Psychotherapist

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.

Registered Psychotherapist/Social Worker

Bank St, Ottawa, ON

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.

Registered Psychotherapist

Lifesource Medical Centre, 2130 Robertson Rd., Ottawa, ON K2H 5Z1

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.

Registered Social Worker

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.

Certified Canadian Counsellor

1825 St. Joseph Blvd, Ottawa, ON K1C 7C6

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.

Jane Langmaid, M. Ed. (Counselling)

Registered Psychotherapist, Ontario

124 O'Connor St, Suite 503, Ottawa, ON K1P 5M9

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.

Richard Merrill Haney, M.Ed., Ph.D. (Counselling Therapy)

Couple Counselling/Coaching and Family Mediation Specialist

301 Bank St. (at Somerset St.) In Centretown, Ottawa, ON K2P 1X7

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.

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.

Ros Macdonald, BA, MSW, RSW

Registered Clinical Counsellor

Unit 125 - 2111 Montreal Rd., Ottawa, ON K1J 8M8

My intention is to support you. Anger is a mask, covering over our more vulnerable feelings of fear, sadness, or hurt underneath. Anger can also come out as an overreaction to a present situation, fueled by past hurts.. I can offer you relaxation exercises and handouts to help you heal & learn to let go. An important 1st step is to develop awareness of what your triggers are. Feelings of anger can also be positive, signalling to us that something in our lives needs to be changed . How do you want to deal with your anger so it is safe for others to be around you? How can you use your thinking as well as your heart to decide how you wish to respond to situations that trigger you?
