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.

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.

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.

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.

We work with different techniques for helping you cope while you learn different strategies to help achieve power over your anger. One technique is to find a common ground to agree-upon with another person rather then engage in a conflict with them. the use of deep breathing and meditation can be used as a means of achieving relaxation. Other interventions may include learning empathy, forgiveness, stress management skills, changing how you speak about yourself and others or learning to be more optimistic in life. The treatments are designed to be personal to each individual.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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 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.

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 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.
