Anger is the product of responsibility disown. As long as I perceive myself as a victim – which we all do – I will continue to blame, resent, guilt those around me. As such, we can experience anger as a reaction to two situations: It can stem from being blamed for somebody else’s mistake, and from rejecting responsibility and blaming somebody for an undesirable situation. When angry, we project causation on the other, hence avoiding to see how we may have had a part to play in the way things turned out. Perhaps we are not as responsible as the other may think we are, but we certainly have a certain share of responsibility, since we are partially responsible for everything.

Anger can be a healthy reaction to upsetting events, but when expressed aggressively it is very destructive. You can learn how to calm your anger and channel it in a healthy way. Anxiety is often a contributor to angry outbursts. When you are tense, worried, insecure and perfectionistic anger easily surfaces. Addressing the underlying causes of anger enables you to disengage from destructive patterns and improve your relationships.

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.

It will provide the tools to take back your life and resolve the triggers that result in unplanned anger reactions.

While anger can often temporarily solve our problems, very quickly it can begin to separate us from what we actually desire. This might look like a rift in our relationships, frustration at work, difficulty keeping friends and loved ones, feeling distant from those we care about, or even being misunderstood. We might then want to get rid of our anger, however, this often is not helpful. Anger exists for a reason, and sometimes we need some assistance in figuring this out. By working together we can often sort out our anger and gain understanding and focus for our future.

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.

We all get angry from time to time. It is a way of letting others know that we need to be taken seriously. When we are not taken seriously, anger builds and can become self-destructive or harmful to others. Often anger is the only way we know how to be heard. Sometimes anger is a cover for more vulnerable feelings such as sadness and fear. If you have anger issues, I will help you regain control by exploring the sources of your anger and resolving any unmet needs.

Anger is a healthy and normal emotion in the right amounts. However, it has the capacity to disrupt your quality of life and relationships if left unchecked. It might feel good or powerful to get angry, but it often masks another emotion- one that might feel more vulnerable. Therapy with me is about exploring the emotions behind the anger and discovering ways to express them more constructively. This also includes learning relaxation and de-escalation skills.

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.

I believe that anger is an emotion like any other emotion, joy, sadness, etc. Anger should not be managed; it should be felt and experience. If we give ourselves permission to be angry and to feel the underlying emotions that causes the anger, we are less likely to move into reactive states of anger. My approach to anger would be to "feel it" and be angry so that it does not have to be a scary emotion that has to be managed.

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.

Anger is taboo. So when we get angry there are very few templates available to teach us how to manage it. It can have unimaginable force and scare us. What might it be capable of? The goal is to create safe conditions to explore it and find out what it is telling us. Then we can learn to express it and create conditions where we have ownership.

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.

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.

My approach to anger management has been refined over the years. I tend to offer a series for those seeking anger management and use psycho-educational resources to assist them. I follow a blended program which uses CBT, DBT and psychoanalysis to assist each client in developing new behavioural strategies. Each week these are reviewed and the client has the opportunity to discuss how these psychoeducational practices have changed their outcome.

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 management problems emerge from a social system where both genders are taught that expression of anger is inappropriate. Anger is one of seven basic human emotions and is in no way dangerous, unfeminine, or taboo. Explosive anger typically emerges when people attempt to keep their anger from others, holding it inside until they can no longer contain it. My approach is to model and practice graded expression of anger, and to help people modify the point(s) of view from which anger is seen to emerge.

Don't let your anger hurt others or yourself any longer.

Anger is one of my favorite emotions. It is often heavily misunderstood as being very negative... something to be managed and controlled. I have a different view and instead I support clients to engage and understand their anger. In doing so, anger can actually bring people closer together, rather than pushing them apart. I will help you figure out where your anger comes from. Does it represent a problem to solve, or does it represent a loss that can't be fixed. If it is a problem to solve, then anger can give the energy required to sort out issues. If it is related to grief, then it is no longer an anger management issue. Please calla me to help sort out where it is coming from.

Anger is a natural human response. It reflects authentic experience, and as such, is a valid indicator of how we feel in the moment. However, anger can be expressed in damaging ways that influence how we're seen by others, and how we see ourselves. Angry responses are often a reflection of deeper feelings we may have, but are unaware of. Talking about anger can help us better understand the ways we are vulnerable to it, how we might stand against it if it's destructive, what it is trying to tell us, and the underlying feelings that might be contributing to it.

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.
