Anger is a normal human emotion, but when it becomes chronic and explosive, it is a destructive force in every area of a person's life. At Valiant Recovery, we equip our clients with anger and stress management tools through individual counseling, group sessions and different forms of therapy. We teach clients the healthy way to manage anger, by being in touch with their feelings, counteracting their negative thoughts with positive ones, identifying their anger triggers, thinking critically about the situation, setting realistic goals, and putting positive action into effect.

Our thoughts, feelings and behaviours are connected and can be difficult and confusing to take a step back and look at our own anger. Counselling helps ways to cope with feelings of anger in a healthier way and offer new perceptions to view triggers. Anger can be a symptom of many things such as, past hurts and current feelings of being misunderstood, or being a victim of an injustice. Counselling will help sort this all out and help you feel more in control of your own thoughts, feelings and actions as well as, provide a deeper sense of peace and forgiveness for your self or others.

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.

As a counsellor who has been working with clients for 15+ years, clients who have issues with anger management are often struggling with depression. From my experience, anger is a symptom of a problem rather than a cause. Anger often results when we find ourselves unable to cope with a situation in which we feel powerless and helpless. There is also a difference between anger and rage. Rage is anger that seems to come out of nowhere and feels out of control. Rage is often brought on by feelings of shame and feeling victimized. In my experience, when anger or rage goes unexpressed it often comes out in the body as pain, fatigue, or health issues.

So, if you're looking to forever end the cycle of explosions and apologies and long to finally get control of that out of control feeling, we can help! Anger is just too powerful of a force to simply manage.

I believe that anger can be healthy. Anger is about asserting ourselves and protecting ourselves. I help clients struggling with anger to understand the purpose of anger and how to express it. I start with symptom treatment and teach clients how to regulate their anger. These different tools and strategies help clients manage anger in everyday life. Then I help clients understand where the build of anger comes from so that it does not keep coming back up like it currently is.

So many of the mom's I work with struggle with postpartum rage. They often share that they never used to feel angry but since becoming a mom, they feel it boil up inside them. This is usually a symptom of anxiety and overwhelm. I try to work with my clients to look at the full picture and see where we can create margin in their life to begin taking care of themselves again. If you are a mom and struggling with anger, don't be afraid to reach out for support!

Anger is known as a secondary emotion which means there is a primary emotion under the surface of anger therefore it is important to deal with anger but also emotions associated with it. Elizabeth can help you learn tools and skills in order to deal with the feelings of anger as well as behaviours associated with it, such a road rage. Elizabeth can also help you to uncover the primary emotions underneath of your anger to discover what is contributing to it. After processing those primary emotions, clients often find that their anger disolves and they are able to better deal with negative feelings.

Anger is a reaction to our thoughts. It is a way of dealing with troublesome situations although it may not be a constructive and healthy way of dealing. Anger may be the result of the inability to regulate emotions and date all the way back to our brain development in childhood. I will work with clients to learn new ways to deal with troublesome emotions without reacting angrily. Mindfulness is a powerful tool in transforming this type of reactivity.

Anger usually results from a lack of awareness and skill in identifying and connecting with our internal experience and feelings. When this happens emotions get "bottled up" and anger is the inevitable result. I teach strategies and techniques to help clients learn to effectively deal, NOT AVOID, their feelings. Learning identify and accept our internal experience is the key to leading a meaningful and fulfilling life. The benefits are life changing - better relationships, less stress/anxiety and greater success and happiness.

I offer counselling for anger. Did you know that anger is a primal emotion, meaning that it is an automatic "reaction" to situations, located in the hind brain along with functions such as breathing and heart rate? Humans use anger as an unconscious defence mechanism when they feel threatened, which indicates that it is an emotion actually based in fear. It is important to understand this in order to be able to empathize with these people, making them feel safe enough to let their guard down and reveal what they are so afraid of. The anger then fades away and I am able to teach them how to rewire their brains in order to "respond" to stressful situations rather than react without thinking.

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.

To work with anger management, we must get beyond the observable. While anger is an emotion that everyone feels from time to time, anger management typically means to self soothe or self regulate oneself in order to effectively manage an emotion we all feel at times. I dig beyond the typically issue of anger in order to work with the root cause of anger.

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 is a two-edged sword. In one direction it can work for your good, telling you when things do not seem fair or right to you, and then giving you the motivation to do something about it. But in the opposite direction, anger can literally destroy you and those around you. Because this discrimination is not easily achieved, some people end up trying to avoid anger altogether, others express it passively, while yet others turn it outward in explosive, deliberate, or chronic anger. Counselling can help you learn how to express your frustrations in healthy ways and let go of your destructive anger. You can make the needed changes in your life.

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.
