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.

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.

In my therapy , I use a wholistic approach to anger management techniques. I not only deal with the behavioural aspects of managing anger, but also work on the bodily responses to anger. To achieve this, I teach my clients to use breathing techniques that helps people to respond differently to anger provoking situations. I often hear that people realize their overreactions after the event and by using breathing techniques, they can learn to be aware of their responses in the moment, which is the best way to manage anger effectively.

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.

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...
