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.

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.

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 is a natural part of life and a very important and healthy emotion when expressed appropriately. Anger is not only an emotion, but also a physical reaction in the body. Our blood pressures and heart rate rise as does the level of adrenaline in our body. Unfortunately, when expressed inappropriately, anger can impair our judgment and thinking, causing us to act irrationally or violently towards others. Anger management is a process of learning to recognize the signs that you are becoming angry and to take positive action to deal with the emotions brought on by a situation. Anger management therapy focuses on providing methods and tools for managing and expressing it appropriately.

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.

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 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.

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.

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.

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 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 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.

Repressed anger or explosive anger can alienate you from your friends, family and colleagues. Outbursts can provoke feelings of shame. Buried anger often leaves you feeling resentful and tense. Everyone experiences anger; with the proper tools to manage and express your anger, it can be a healthy and energizing force in your life rather than destructive and alienating. I offer supportive counselling to address the roots of anger, and provide practical skills to manage and express it so that you feel reconnected to yourself and others.

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.

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.

I believe anger comes from two places: hurt and fear. We will work together to determine the root of your anger, and we will spend time exploring how it developed into what it has become today. Through this process, a client may experience the ability to anticipate angry reactions and find ways to circumvent and deal appropriately with an emotion that is completely natural, but potentially dangerous if left unchecked.

Anger is a normal human emotion. It is how anger is expressed that is problematic. Anger can damage relationships, and result in serious problems. Effective anger management uses a variety of treatment strategies to help clients learn emotional regulation, and effective communication. Relaxation techniques, including mindfulness can help clients respond to stressful situations in a more appropriate way. Becoming aware of unhelpful thoughts that proceed anger is important so they can be replaced with more realistic thoughts. You can learn effective strategies to manage your anger, and mood, through effective anger management therapy.

Ernie had frequent angry outbursts causing panic attacks. He struggled with all his relationships and it was greatly affecting his work. Our discussions revealed a tremendous longing for approval, stemming from a stormy relationship with his father. All Ernie could recall was his father saying, “Big boys don't cry so suck it up!" He learned to keep things locked up until erupting like a volcano. He learned body listening which is a way to track sensations and allow sad or hurt feelings to speak, move or tell their story. He talked about his concerns and became aware of patterns and their effect on his body. With mind-body dialogue, Ernie experienced information in a new, connected way.
