Anger is a very normal natural reaction to situations that may cause disappointment, hurt, frustration, sadness, confusion, shame or other negative emotions. Yet, for many people anger is an extremely uncomfortable and confusing emotion. Uncontrolled anger can make you feel as though you're at the mercy of an unpredictable and powerful emotion. Each individual is unique in their origin and type of anger, so the first step towards anger management is uncovering the secret of your unique anger which will put you on the right road towards developing methods to conguer it.

I don't like "anger management" so I do not do it. The real reason you are angry will not be dealt with in "anger management". It is a cover up, a lid on a bottle, a bandaid. It does not manage anger, it manages behaviour. It should be called behaviour management. When clients are struggling with anger, it is typically due to other emotions that are ignored, invalidated, clamped up, or unexpressed. Together, we will uncover the actual root of your anger and allow yourself to be released from it.

Poeple usually seek counselling for anger managment when they have realized their anger is hurting themselves and others. Ultimately the best way to think of addressing anger is that the outburst comes because your pail of anger has overflowed. Often if we have anger issues it comes from long term hurt, rejection, disappointment, unmet needs and fear. Using anger management techniques without addressing this past issues will only result in short term relief.

Anger is a natural emotion that can be dealt with in health or unhealthy ways. Rage, yelling and violence are clearly destructive. Holding onto resentments is a more subtle form of destructive anger. Learning to identify feelings, express them and let them go can change your life and your relationships. Anger Counselling involves identifying triggers, learning tools to cope with anger, and uncovering the origins of rage.

Managing anger means managing your need to have things your way even if your way seems reasonable to you. It means questioning your sense of entitlement to having your way. Anger can be a strong communication to others that what one is angry about really matters. As an initial response it can be a powerful impetus to change but unless one takes some kind of action following the anger it will only serve to reinforce a sense of powerlessness. Anger can be a way to impose ones will. Sometimes people learn that this works in the short term but in the long term it never really does.

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.

Anger can be one of the more misunderstood emotions. It can be just anger, or it can be the face of underlying hurt, shame and loneliness. I work with clients to faciliate a greater understanding of the meaning of thier anger, where it comes from and what is supporting it. It is this increase in understanding that then helps us move forward to improved coping and management of these intense emotions.

People that have a hard time controlling their anger have difficulty dealing with pressures from other people, the outside world, other people and the way stressors impact on them. Day to day problems, negative thoughts and beliefs, loss of control, mistrust, and interpersonal relationship problems are common issues experienced by people who have difficulties managing anger. Therapy can help you explore the issues behind your anger while learning strategies to control your anger and communicate your needs. Negative thoughts and beliefs will be challenged while exploring and enhancing your personal relationships.

Anger can be a healthy response to negative treatment or events. We’ve all gotten angry and it can help to communicate to others that we’re not okay with something. In fact, not having the ability to feel anger is a whole other issue. However, for some people, uncontrollable, overly frequent or inappropriate expressions of anger can damage relationships, career success or more. Shift Psychological can help the anger management process by identifying and treating the origins of the anger – the messages about self and the world that cause it. Then, using our unique approach we remove them. This results in an absence of reaction and an appropriate level of calm.

My approach to anger helps individuals understand the roots of their anger - those aspects of their lives that have contributed to anger. Learning what triggers anger is key to changing and managing anger. Increasing self-awareness of triggers helps with the next step of learning new ways to respond to anger. Stress, depression, and self-esteem/confidence are often related to anger. Therefore, learning new ways to manage stress and depression can also help reduce anger. Lifestyle choices and health issues can contribute to anger. Enhancing health and well-being helps boost one's capacity to effectively manage anger.

Many of us have not been taught the tools and strategies that are needed to manage anger in a healthy and appropriate manner. While anger is a natural emotion, which can serve as a helpful signal that something is "just not right," it is often handled in a poor manner. I help people to see the maladaptive patterns and strategies they have been using to express their anger, and then replace these with healthier ones. We also work to unload built up frustration, resentment, and hurt, which often reaches a "breaking point" and needs to be resolved so that it does not come out as uncontrolled anger. By doing this, clients can reach a more peaceful place, and will come to see anger in a new way.

Anger is a complex emotion because it can occur for a variety of reasons and sometimes it's tough to tell why you feel angry in a given moment. Managing your anger involves understanding not only the situational events that triggers it but also the underlying emotions that end up being expressed as anger. This involves taking a closer look at other feelings (primary emotions) and learning how to cope with them so that they don't present as anger, which is a secondary emotion.
