Anger is a healthy emotion. The issue with anger is learning to identify it and learn healthy coping skills to express anger. We will explore what the underlying feelings are beneath your anger. I will educate you on the healthy, positive ways of expressing your anger. Often anger has turned into resentment over unmet needs that have not been expressed. I will work with you on assertive behavior to begin to ask for what you are needing to avoid your unmet needs turning into anger.

Anger is a very powerful emotion. Sometimes there are legitimate reasons to become angry. However, when your anger grabs control of you so you are no longer in control of your actions, it can put you into very dangerous territory. The good news is that sometimes expressing our fears and hurts can really help relieve the frustrations that can cause anger to become out of control. Let's talk about ways to better manage your frustrations and anger so you can live a happier, less less angry life.

Anger management counseling is often court-ordered, in which case specially certified programs are required. If you are wanting to change how you deal with anger on your own, in individual therapy, then please call or email. My approach is to help you identify triggers, both present and past, and to help you find ways to slow the anger process down so that you can feel in control again. When you contact me, we will discuss what approaches might work best for you.

Anger can be a scary emotion. It can be frightening for the person expressing it and frightening for the person receiving it. Anger is a healthy emotion when used appropriately but sometimes, a person's anger feels out of control. That is when help is needed to look at ways of controlling the anger and perhaps, why such anger exists. When a person comes to see me with issues of anger management, we look ways to improve impulse control and look at why the anger is occurring in the first place. Hopefully, the client will get some insight and understanding into his/her issues, anger management skills will be taught, and, as a result, the anger be decreased and expressed appropriately.

Anger can be appropriate in a relationship or on the job if delivered in a timely, clear,direct manner and if the person communicating makes it about themselves, their needs and wants and not a character assassination of the other person. Often if someone holds on to feelings the tendency is to explode which comes out with a lot of heat and not much light. Name calling, hitting, throwing objects,swearing at,demeaning, s interferes with communication and connection. Some of these behaviors are learned and can be unlearned. Processing feelings what is needed and lacking with direct clear feedback, in-session practice of communication, homework, stress management helps to diffuse explosion.

Sometimes unresolved issues with a partner or family member turn to resentment. As resentment builds up, you can become filled with anger and rage. This is when people tend to "lose control" and blame others for inappropriate behaviors. Some people even get into trouble with the law. Learn appropriate ways to express your feelings of anger, and see how it benefits your relationships.

I help men and women process the core cause beneath their anger. Anger is usually just a symptom of a deeper issue that often stems from things such as being hurt, betrayed, humiliated, abandoned, rejected, bullied, etc. Healing the root of the anger naturally relieves the potency of it. At the same time, I help the client to learn and practice relaxation techniques, impulse control methods, effective ways of communicating his or her feelings, and alternative and constructive ways to express his or her anger.

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.

Anger is a feeling that carries information. Anger alerts us to the awareness that we feel threatened in some way. People often get angry because they are in emotional pain. However, showing someone that you are in pain is a more effective way to help others feel remorse for what they did than raging at them. Emotionally intense young adults do not have to destroy any more relationships with "over the top" reactions! There are more effective ways of responding. I can teach these young people simple relaxation and awareness exercises that allow them to tame their anger.

While there are thousands of techniques to manage anger, understanding and resolving the source of the anger is imperative. Anger is never a primary emotion. Typically anger is a secondary response to feelings of hurt. A person's feelings are hurt then, perhaps because he or she hasn't learned how do deal with feelings of hurt effectively, those feelings manifest as anger. The more unexpressed hurt held inside, the more anger you feel. Anger stems from feeling unjustly treated and yet when anger is not managed, people still fail to understand and empathize with you. We can work to get to the source of the anger and help you to improve your relationship with self and others. Feel free to call my o....

When this happens it may be very helpful to consult a therapist with skill in dealing with anger management problems. Together we can identify the triggers to anger arousal. We can identify anger maintaining patterns of thought and learn proven methods for stress reduction and respectful assertiveness. You can learn to recognize and use your angry emotions to enhance and deepen your most meaning relationships.

Anger management isn't meant to rid you of anger, or "fix" your feelings. People who tell you that you feel "too much" or "shouldn't" feel a certain way may be uncomfortable with how you relay emotion, but that doesn't mean you need "fixing." I can help you learn how to work with, not against, your emotions -- whether anger or another strong sensation. The key is practicing forms of expression that support your highest interests rather than sabotaging yourself, your career, or personal relationships for the short-lived relief of either emotional outbursts or self-numbing. Instead, I can teach you to tap into the wisest parts of yourself, so that emotions and behavior synch up healthily.
