Anger is a completely normal, usually healthy, human emotion. But when it gets out of control and turns destructive, it can lead to problems—problems at work, in interpersonal relationships, and a reduction in the overall quality of your life. And it can make you feel as though you're at the mercy of an unpredictable and powerful emotion. Chances are that if you currently have a problem with anger, you likely already know it. If you find yourself acting in ways that seem out of control and frightening, you need help finding better ways to deal with this emotion. The primary goal of anger management is to help you understand and control this powerful emotion. Simple relaxation tools, such as d....

Anger can be an interesting reaction because often times there are other emotions lingering just under the surface. By learning to identify and express other emotions, as well as working on building a skill set to counteract impulsivity, healthy coping mechanisms can be put in the place of bad habits, giving clients a chance to observe how they have more control than they ever thought possible.

I approach the problem of anger differently from most therapists. Instead of struggling to fight against and manage anger, I encourage people to examine why anger is there and how it protects him or her so he or she can choose to do something different through the tools and strategies developed in sessions. Anger, like all strong emotions, is telling us something. If we can understand it, then it will lose its power over us. This frees us up to make different decisions about how we react with those around us that can be more aligned with who we want to be with those closest to us. This values-driven approach guides behaviour change long-term.

Anger can be a sign of depression or of unresolved trauma. In our society anger is one of the only "acceptable" emotions to express, especially for men. For this reason, in psychology, anger is referred to as a "surface emotion". This means that we show anger but there is usually other emotions under it like, hurt, betrayal or feeling misunderstood. Through therapy you can learn to identify your true emotions and feel and act less angrily. This improves your communication, relationships and enjoyment of life. I am here to help.

It often feels like Anger arises without warning. Before we know it, we are in the midst of an angry outburst. It doesn't need to be this way! At Menla Psychological Counselling you will learn ways to regain control of your anger, rather than having it control you. The goal of anger management isn't to get rid of anger, it is a valid emotion after all, but rather to stop anger from causing chaos and pain in your life.

I have had extensive training and experience in working with both anger management and domestic violence issues. I have a fundamental understanding of using cognitive behavior therapy, rational emotive therapy and Duluth model fundamentals for working with power and control issues or anger management. I have also had extensive experience in running groups, assessing anger related issues and working through the underlying issues which lead to problematic anger. EMDR has also been found to be effectively useful for working with unresolved emotional issues leading to anger problems.

Anger can show up in many forms - it can cause significant problems in our daily living. Anger can stem from a variety of reasons, and it is important to work toward understanding our anger (why it is there, what is its purpose), so that we can acquire possibilities for conceptualizing and behaving differently. Understanding other associated emotions helps us to develop a more nuanced and effective understanding of ourselves and our lives.

We all get angry at times. Healthy, constructive anger is one way that little voice inside your body says, 'Hey, something's not OK -- can we fix this?' Anger is just an emotion, like any other -- love, loneliness, shame, hope, boredom, happiness, ad infinitum. What makes anger a problem is what you choose to do in response to that little voice ... is your response unhealthy? Destructive? Sometimes anger is a problem when you ignore that little voice -- that warning signal that alerts you that all is not OK inside you and insists that you DO something about it. If your anger is getting in the way of your relationships and your quality of life, I can help you turn things around.

Anger is a powerful emotion that tells that something needs to change. Anger can be destructive or empowering. Inappropriate expression of anger can disrupt work and relationships. Even though you may have been taught that anger is taboo, bottling up anger is not the answer either. Poorly managed anger can also lead to problems with physical health. Well managed anger can help protect personal boundaries. Often anger masks other underlying feelings that are more painful. Anu helps you to not only manage anger and act assertively, but discover what information anger gives you about what you need or what your anger may be hiding.

Anger is a normal human emotion that can assist us in protecting ourselves and creating boundaries with others. When misused, however, it can also be dstructive and alienating. Anger management will assist you to identify anger triggers and to develop strategies for calming yourself and expressing frustration without damaging yourself or others in the process. The aim of therapy together is to regain control over one's anger in order to choose when, how, and with whom to be appropriately angry.

I do work with individuals around issues with anger, irritability, and frustration. However, I don't provide "anger management" courses or classes, or structured teaching in this regard. I recognize this can be helpful for some individuals, but prefer to work within the context of psychotherapy to understand and develop personal resources to manage emotional challenges. If you're looking for a structured class or program, I would recommend checking out community resources such as those offered by Catholic Family Services (note - you don't have to be Catholic!)

Can my anger outbursts be treated with medication? The question should probably not be if it can be treated, but whether it should be treated with medication. Sometimes the anger is a symptom of a disorder, and the disorder needs to be treated. Highly driven men and women sometimes ‘act out’ their depression and have anger outbursts; clearly, they do not need anger management; they need medication for their depression. The elderly may also have anger outburst that are a symptom of a disorder, and then a pharmacological intervention is justified. Let Dr. Mervin (Paraklesis Counselling) come alongside you to help you with anger management and to discern whether pharmacotherapy is appropriate.

Dr. Val used to facilitate groups of those who had engaged in family violence, both men and women. Up front, number one is caring acceptance of the perpetrator, regardless of what he/she has done. A non-judgmental attitude is engendered based on Val's understanding that we are all children of God, and that we've all got a negative and a positive side, and those two sides are in constant battle. Helping people recognize their physiological signs of anger and curbing them before the explosion, is an important part of Dr. Val's training. Learning emotional regulation is a cornerstone of her approach.

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 management counseling can help to identify stressors and learn the steps to stay calm in the face of anger. The goal is to handle tense situations in more constructive and positive ways by reducing the emotional and physical arousal that anger can cause. It will provide the tools to take back your life and resolve the triggers that result in unplanned anger reactions.

Managing not just our anger, but our full range of sometimes confusing emotions can feel insurmountable. In elementary school we are taught how to stay healthy physically, but we often received no guidance on maintaining our emotional health and are left to figure it out on our own. I've been told that "nothing comes from nothing", so much of managing anger comes not just from the tools I teach, but also from the exploration and healing of it's origins and triggers.

Do you feel like no one cares about how you feel? Are you feeling like you are "losing it," "fused," "pressured," "angry," "frustrated," "sad," and "stressed?" Are you angry with your partner, spouse, girlfriend or wife? I will help by talking with you about issues that really concern you. Although anger is a primal emotion, frustration, injustice, unfairness, stress, unhealthy behaviours and other issues usually trigger it. By working with me, you will be able to identify “real” issues that are causing you to feel “angry.” I will work with you on how to best address these underlying issues casing anger. Having effective communication skills is vital in dealing with these issues.

There are often several contributing factors to anger. Examples of these factors include residual or chronic distress. Sometimes, you have low thresholds for tolerating cognitive and affective changes. Other behavioural manifestations of rage and trauma include being punitive, lacking concentration, becoming entangled with family and friends, maintaining inappropriate interpersonal boundaries – perhaps between work and home – and withdrawing from work and social-related situations. As you begin to identify the leading causes of anger, we can support you through management approaches ranging from psychanalytic to functional to cognitive behavioural. Don't hesitate to contact us for customized options to address your anger management needs.
