Clients who have a hard time managing anger that interferes with daily life and/or relationships, stand to gain a lot from turning their attention towards how to better understand this experience. Difficulty with anger is very widespread, and no one should feel ashamed for not knowing how to control it. The first step is examining in a safe environment what is actually happening. What steps lead to getting angry and what else contributes to it. Clients will benefit from a much richer appreciation for the sequence of anger and the deep and very personal feelings that underly the experience. Benefits include reduced stress, closer relationships, and more control of life situations.

Anger may just be the tip of the ice-berg to what we are experiencing. There may be massive hidden hurt, loss and grief. While there are practical strategies for dealing with anger, which I introduce and apply, there is much that anger has to teach us and help us in our daily functioning if we effectively access its energy. I help clients learn how to channel this powerful energy for their best interests and use.

Anger can be a powerfully destructive emotion, not only in terms of your relationships with others, but with regard to your health. I use EFT and Cognitive Therapy to help people manage and reframe their anger. This can work quite quickly, no matter how long you have felt angry at the world, and regardless of the provocation. Even if your anger is perfectly justified, it usually doesn't do you any good to feel it. You are the one who gets hurt, rarely the person you're angry with. So let's do something about it!

People come for psychotherapy to my downtown Toronto practice in order to help them manage feelings of extreme anger and other painful emotions, as well as difficulties being able to be assertive without become excessively aggressive. Sometimes these psychological challenges are recent developments, but sometimes they represent lifelong struggles coping with difficult feelings.

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.

Repressed feelings have this annoying habit of not staying repressed. Our underlying emotions often surface at inappropriate times and/or in disguise. The inability to be "in charge" of our anger is often simply difficulty in dealing with these underlying emotions that have been left unaddressed. Anger management is not simply about self-control. What we want to do is alter our internal experiences so that we do not experience the feelings of angst and frustration in the first place. To do so, we need to stop judging our behaviour and ourselves. We need to start acknowledging the reality of situations and focus on dealing with these circumstances in a more constructive manner.
