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 is a healthy and normal emotion in the right amounts. However, it has the capacity to disrupt your quality of life and relationships if left unchecked. It might feel good or powerful to get angry, but it often masks another emotion- one that might feel more vulnerable. Therapy with me is about exploring the emotions behind the anger and discovering ways to express them more constructively. This also includes learning relaxation and de-escalation skills.

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 is a natural part of life and a very important and healthy emotion when expressed appropriately. Anger is not only an emotion, but also a physical reaction in the body. Our blood pressures and heart rate rise as does the level of adrenaline in our body. Unfortunately, when expressed inappropriately, anger can impair our judgment and thinking, causing us to act irrationally or violently towards others. Anger management is a process of learning to recognize the signs that you are becoming angry and to take positive action to deal with the emotions brought on by a situation. Anger management therapy focuses on providing methods and tools for managing and expressing it appropriately.

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.

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.

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.

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 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 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 can be a healthy response to negative treatment or events. We’ve all gotten angry and it can help to communicate to others that we’re not okay with something. In fact, not having the ability to feel anger is a whole other issue. However, for some people, uncontrollable, overly frequent or inappropriate expressions of anger can damage relationships, career success or more. Shift Psychological can help the anger management process by identifying and treating the origins of the anger – the messages about self and the world that cause it. Then, using our unique approach we remove them. This results in an absence of reaction and an appropriate level of calm.

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.
