One of the first steps to dealing with anger is learning to react to life realistically by addressing unrealistic expectations. If you come to accept that frustration is normal, you will be better prepared emotionally things don't go your way. It is also important to discover whether a part of you is overreacting based on a similar event from your past. Maybe it's unresolved issues from a past relationship or bitterness at a family member who hurt you when you were younger. Whatever it is, I can help you address the root cause and teach you how to respond appropriately.

We all feel angry from time to time. It is a natural human emotion. But expressing anger in a way that hurts other people can damage relationships and careers, cause financial and legal problems, and even damage our health. Anger management can be learned. You must learn to identify the triggers, thoughts and feelings that lead to the inappropriate expression of anger. You must learn new, more effective coping responses for when you get angry. Assertive communication patterns will help you get your needs met while respecting the needs of others. Learning effective anger management techniques will help you de-escalate volatile situations, lower your stress, and improve your relationships!

Anger, all negative emotion, is the consequence of wanting the Present Moment to be different. Someone does something we don't like or didn't expect, something undesirable happens, things don't go as expected, causing our mind to resist the situation or circumstance. This resistance is a thought process that stimulates a negative emotion that can be so strong we lose control of our feelings and behavior, almost like something takes us over, raising havoc and doing damage to relationships.
Eventually the adrenaline subsides and we accept the situation, now we have to do damage control. If we learn to accept whatever the Moment presents and listen internally, solutions surface.

Anger has been called a “secondary emotion”. This is because sometimes, though not always, it masks other deeper and more vulnerable emotions such as sadness and fear. Excessive anger is often the result of unresolved hurt and trauma that has not been fully processed and healed. Another source can be ineffective communication skills that leave one frustrated in relationships. Anger can also be the result of untreated depression, anxiety, or bipolar disorder. My clients receive a comprehensive evaluation considering all possible sources of the anger, to treat it at its source, as well as learn techniques and behavior modification to deal with it constructively when it arrises.

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.

There are many reasons why people are unable to control their anger; often it is a family or cultural pattern that has never been questioned. In some families women are not allowed to express anger; in others being angry is unacceptable and a sign or failure for all. Tiredness, stress, pain and hormonal imbalances can all contribute to the problem.
We all have ‘hooks’ for our anger whether it is a person pushing in front of a queue or being ignored. Understanding what they are and re-examining our thoughts around them can be among the first steps to managing anger.
Anger is a basic emotion which has allowed us to survive as a species. When a baby screams because it is hungry, too hot or too cold, it is displaying its raw anger. Anger is the emotion of...(view profile to read more)

Most commonly, I work with men who need help with anger. All of us can lose our cool and hurt other people, but some of us are more likely to express ourselves through anger. There are many reasons why someone might have this issue. The key to learning to redirect ourselves at the critical moment is to be aware of our felt sense at the time. Most people are able to detect, when they train themselves to do so, a charge of emotion in the body. At such times, one must absent the situation before he says and or does something regrettable. It is helpful to learn to be mindful of our felt senses so we can drain the stress through special techniques and also avoid losing control.
