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.

Can my anger outbursts be treated with medication? The question should probably not be if it can be treated, but whether it should be treated with medication. Sometimes the anger is a symptom of a disorder, and the disorder needs to be treated. Highly driven men and women sometimes ‘act out’ their depression and have anger outbursts; clearly, they do not need anger management; they need medication for their depression. The elderly may also have anger outburst that are a symptom of a disorder, and then a pharmacological intervention is justified. Let Dr. Mervin (Paraklesis Counselling) come alongside you to help you with anger management and to discern whether pharmacotherapy is appropriate.

Anger in children and teens is often misunderstood, and is a source of great frustration for families. Effective treatment includes helping individuals understand the source of their anger, how to effectively communicate needs, and helping parents identify their children's lagging skills. Through gaining insight and understanding as to the underlying causes of anger as well as unhelpful patterns of thinking, clients will begin to find healthier and less stressful ways of coping with distress.

At Living Well we do not believe in "anger management" alone, as this simply manages symptoms as opposed to finding a cure. There are often very good reasons people are angry, and we believe these reasons need to be attended to for proper treatment to take place. If you choose to work with one of our therapists, the therapy will offer you ways to cope when you're feeling angry, but also resolution to much of the anger you feel. This form of treatment is often far better to see long lasting results.

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....

Managing not just our anger, but our full range of sometimes confusing emotions can feel insurmountable. In elementary school we are taught how to stay healthy physically, but we often received no guidance on maintaining our emotional health and are left to figure it out on our own. I've been told that "nothing comes from nothing", so much of managing anger comes not just from the tools I teach, but also from the exploration and healing of it's origins and triggers.

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.

Anger management is primarily about recognizing and learning about ourselves and how we deal with our world. Learning the many, many ways how anger impacts the important people in our lives in negative ways, and realizing how serious the consequences can be; can help to motivate us to develop strategies and better ways of dealing with our frustration and inner pain -- ways that won't alienate the people we love.

Anger is a powerful emotion that tells that something needs to change. Anger can be destructive or empowering. Inappropriate expression of anger can disrupt work and relationships. Even though you may have been taught that anger is taboo, bottling up anger is not the answer either. Poorly managed anger can also lead to problems with physical health. Well managed anger can help protect personal boundaries. Often anger masks other underlying feelings that are more painful. Anu helps you to not only manage anger and act assertively, but discover what information anger gives you about what you need or what your anger may be hiding.

Anger is a valid emotion, but expressing it can lead to less than helpful consequences. Choosing different behaviors can have tremendous benefits. Using time-tested techniques that help people change, I can help you understand yourself, your anger, and how to transform the frustrating cycles you've been in to more effective, satisfying ones. This might even help your relationships. Why don't you contact me and start today?

Anger is often called a secondary emotion. It shows up when other more primary emotions have been rising. Those other emotions could be anxiety, sadness or feeling misunderstood. Together, we can address the source of your anger and develop a healthy and sustainable way to deal with strong emotions.

I do work with individuals around issues with anger, irritability, and frustration. However, I don't provide "anger management" courses or classes, or structured teaching in this regard. I recognize this can be helpful for some individuals, but prefer to work within the context of psychotherapy to understand and develop personal resources to manage emotional challenges. If you're looking for a structured class or program, I would recommend checking out community resources such as those offered by Catholic Family Services (note - you don't have to be Catholic!)

Anger is a positive emotion! Learning to use anger positively can result in less stress, greater happiness and a stronger sense of pride in one’s own responses. Anger motivates and empowers people to act in pursuit of justice, resolution and healing. It is first of all a compliment for those having the motive of caring about what is right. The secret of getting your anger to work for you is to unhook it from the second motive of guaranteeing that future injustices will not happen. Pursuing that guarantee just burns people out! At McNaughton and Associates Counselling, we will help you get the most out of your anger in a healthy manner, and escape damaging consequences.
