Sometimes we arrive in adulthood without the skills of anger management. We simply repeat the patterns we learned from our families growing up. Anger management is a set of skills we all need to learn if we are going to succeed in our relationships and in the work place. Most of us have learned successful ways of interacting with others when the situation is positive or we are in a comfortable mental state. Where we have problems is when we are upset and angry. Uncontrolled anger can ruin relationships, lead to job loss, and when extreme problems with the law.

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.

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 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!

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.

Although it's great to be able to manage your anger, it is even better to be so stress-resistant that you hardly ever feel anger in the first place. I will show you an array of powerful anger and stress reducing strategies that you will be able to use for the rest of your life. You will not only ACT calm, but you will actually BE calm in the face of other people's provocations. Whether it's marriage, parenting, work or other situations that typically make you lose your tranquility, your new techniques will restore and maintain your balance. You'll be physically and emotionally healthier than ever before. You (and everyone else) will love the "new you!"

If you have a problem with anger, you probably have a stockpile of it from your past. Either you were never allowed to express it, or you never learned how. Even with time, anger does not go away by itself. And it can become a pretty scary thing. This is because old anger can explode without warning. Or it can leak out sideways and sabotage our relationships or our job. I will help you to unpack historic anger in a safe and healing way. With my support, you will begin to recognize your anger when it is small and manageable. And you will learn to transform everyday anger into a constructive force for change. You will control it. It will no longer control you!

Anger is a normal emotion... it's part of being human, and we need it. Often it's our response to anger that gets us into trouble. How we respond to anger can depend on our age, our gender, religion, culture, life experiences... and most importantly, how we were taught, at an early age, to respond to anger. One of the nice things about being human is our ability to adapt... it's how we survive. What we learn, we can unlearn. What no longer works for us can be discarded, and replaced with something that does. And... we can only make these changes when we're ready...
