In T2C 4J2 - Nearby to Discovery Ridge, Calgary.

I believe that anger can be healthy. Anger is about asserting ourselves and protecting ourselves. I help clients struggling with anger to understand the purpose of anger and how to express it. I start with symptom treatment and teach clients how to regulate their anger. These different tools and strategies help clients manage anger in everyday life. Then I help clients understand where the build of anger comes from so that it does not keep coming back up like it currently is.

In T2R 1E7 - Nearby to Discovery Ridge, Calgary.

Dr. Val used to facilitate groups of those who had engaged in family violence, both men and women. Up front, number one is caring acceptance of the perpetrator, regardless of what he/she has done. A non-judgmental attitude is engendered based on Val's understanding that we are all children of God, and that we've all got a negative and a positive side, and those two sides are in constant battle. Helping people recognize their physiological signs of anger and curbing them before the explosion, is an important part of Dr. Val's training. Learning emotional regulation is a cornerstone of her approach.

In T3M 1H5 - Nearby to Discovery Ridge, Calgary.

Anger is a normal healthy human emotion. When people allow it to get out of control it can turn destructive, it can lead to problems at work, personal relationships, and the overall quality of life. I like to think of anger using the metaphore of a hammer. You can do a lot of things with a hammer. You can build things and you can tear things apart. The hammer is just a tool just like anger can be a tool. Anger isn't the problem, it's what you do with it. I help people learn the skills they need to use their anger and the underlying hurt and feelings of injustice to make positive choices that lead to positive relationships and experiences.

Deanne has extensive experience working with clients who struggle with anger. Deanne’s warm, empathetic and non judgemental approach helps the client to feel safe, heard and understood in session. Deanne believes that anger is an important emotion that provides us with information if we can just learn to slow down our reaction and be curious about the emotions underneath the anger. Deanne draws on DBT to help build the skills to become less reactive to anger and learn more about what the anger wants to teach us about ourselves.

Do you feel like no one cares about how you feel? Are you feeling like you are "losing it," "fused," "pressured," "angry," "frustrated," "sad," and "stressed?" Are you angry with your partner, spouse, girlfriend or wife? I will help by talking with you about issues that really concern you. Although anger is a primal emotion, frustration, injustice, unfairness, stress, unhealthy behaviours and other issues usually trigger it. By working with me, you will be able to identify “real” issues that are causing you to feel “angry.” I will work with you on how to best address these underlying issues casing anger. Having effective communication skills is vital in dealing with these issues.

In T2P 0B3 - Nearby to Discovery Ridge, Calgary.

Anger influences the way in which we respond to and react to situations and people. For some people, anger is highly integrated in their style of interacting and can lead to problems in interpersonal relationships with family, friends, co-workers, etc. Anger does not need to continue to control your interactions. In my practice, I assist clients in understanding their anger and uncovering the emotions beneath (where appropriate). From an interpersonal approach, I work with clients in developing a redefined system for interacting with others and navigating conflict, as well as assist in developing coping strategies that alleviate the anger and associated emotions.

Anger is a normal reaction to a perceived injustice. It becomes problematic when expressed in ways that are inappropriate or harmful to ourselves and others. Signs of excessive anger include unexpected angry outbursts, constant conflict with others and persistent feelings of anger. Counselling can help you uncover the emotions underneath your anger and with the right tools you can identify your triggers, find healthy ways to cope with and express anger and heal the underlying root causes of your anger.

In T2N 3R7 - Nearby to Discovery Ridge, Calgary.

I approach the problem of anger differently from most therapists. Instead of struggling to fight against and manage anger, I encourage people to examine why anger is there and how it protects him or her so he or she can choose to do something different through the tools and strategies developed in sessions. Anger, like all strong emotions, is telling us something. If we can understand it, then it will lose its power over us. This frees us up to make different decisions about how we react with those around us that can be more aligned with who we want to be with those closest to us. This values-driven approach guides behaviour change long-term.

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!)

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.

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.

Healthy, adaptive anger establishes safe boundaries and prevents one from being violated. Unhealthy, maladaptive anger is an unregulated emotion that can lead to rage and potentially sever your connection with others. During our counselling sessions you will learn the differences between adaptive and maladaptive anger and will engage in skill-building practices that both keep you safe as well as connected in your relationships.

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....

We all get angry at times. Healthy, constructive anger is one way that little voice inside your body says, 'Hey, something's not OK -- can we fix this?' Anger is just an emotion, like any other -- love, loneliness, shame, hope, boredom, happiness, ad infinitum. What makes anger a problem is what you choose to do in response to that little voice ... is your response unhealthy? Destructive? Sometimes anger is a problem when you ignore that little voice -- that warning signal that alerts you that all is not OK inside you and insists that you DO something about it. If your anger is getting in the way of your relationships and your quality of life, I can help you turn things around.

I have had extensive training and experience in working with both anger management and domestic violence issues. I have a fundamental understanding of using cognitive behavior therapy, rational emotive therapy and Duluth model fundamentals for working with power and control issues or anger management. I have also had extensive experience in running groups, assessing anger related issues and working through the underlying issues which lead to problematic anger. EMDR has also been found to be effectively useful for working with unresolved emotional issues leading to anger problems.

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.
