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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

People that have a hard time controlling their anger have difficulty dealing with pressures from other people, the outside world, other people and the way stressors impact on them. Day to day problems, negative thoughts and beliefs, loss of control, mistrust, and interpersonal relationship problems are common issues experienced by people who have difficulties managing anger. 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.

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.

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.

We will learn everything about your anger, including how you experience it, and work to allow anger to be a part of your life without it ruining it.

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.

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.

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.

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 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.

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.

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. I will walk with you on the path to overcoming the destructive impact of anger, and to resolve the situations which lead to unhelpful anger.

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.

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.
