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.

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 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.

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.

Anger is often misunderstood and equated with aggression. In fact, anger is a highly positive emotion which helps to define our boundaries and affirm our inner strengths. Therapy can make anger your friend by helping you to notice it, understand it and express it in a positive way. Most people need to be more angry rather than less. Anger cannot be controlled by bottling it up.

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 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.

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.

I will work with you to discover understanding of your anger and to uncover the ways in which anger has become problematic in your life.

Anger is often for a pretty good reason. I like to work with individuals at reducing the shame around anger and learning how to utilize it effectively, while also managing it. I provide teaching and tools to help people regulate anger and identify underlying emotions or experiences that may contribute to feelings of anger. I like to work with individuals not at eliminating anger, but in managing it effectively

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.

Uncontrolled anger is no fun. Surging adrenaline, tunnel vision and words that leave our mouths faster than you can control. What’s worse is that afterwards, anger most often follows a cycle of guilt or shame. We may then be labelled as an angry person, creating a war within. You may be surprised to learn that anger most often comes from old pain and its cure doesn’t involve willpower or white knuckling in ‘managing it.’ You don’t calm down an angry dog by yelling at it—you approach it slowly and kindly. That’s what we do together, unpacking anger to its roots so that your system can calm down, lengthening your fuse and reminding you that you’re doing your best.

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.

You did it again. You lost your cool and you blew up. And this time, the consequences are serious. Your job is at risk, your family is hurt, or your partner has finally said, “this is it.” But for some reason, you just can’t seem to stop it. One minute you’re fine, then BOOM – 0 to 100. Know this: there is a path to change. Using evidence-based and cutting-edge techniques, I can help you: cool down from intense stress, communicate with others in a way that inspires both love AND respect, catch anger-flare-ups (before they happen), and have healthy outlets for when they do. Together let's keep your relationships, career, and emotions in harmony. There is an answer to anger.

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 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.

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.

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.

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.
