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.

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.

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.

Anger is a part of everyone's life. The underlying emotions that cause us to feel anger include hurt, fear and frustration. Once we identify what is triggering your anger, we will be able to address it. Anger is a really helpful feeling, as it tells us that something is happening that we are not ok with. Together, we will explore new ways to handle the stressors in your life!

Anger management counseling can help to identify stressors and learn the steps to stay calm in the face of anger. The goal is to handle tense situations in more constructive and positive ways by reducing the emotional and physical arousal that anger can cause. It will provide the tools to take back your life and resolve the triggers that result in unplanned anger reactions.

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.

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 often for a pretty good reason. I like to work with individuals at reducing the shame around anger and learning how to utilize it effectively, while also managing it. I provide teaching and tools to help people regulate anger and identify underlying emotions or experiences that may contribute to feelings of anger. I like to work with individuals not at eliminating anger, but in managing it effectively

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.

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.

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.

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 taboo. So when we get angry there are very few templates available to teach us how to manage it. It can have unimaginable force and scare us. What might it be capable of? The goal is to create safe conditions to explore it and find out what it is telling us. Then we can learn to express it and create conditions where we have ownership.

Anger can be a healthy reaction to upsetting events, but when expressed aggressively it is very destructive. You can learn how to calm your anger and channel it in a healthy way. Anxiety is often a contributor to angry outbursts. When you are tense, worried, insecure and perfectionistic anger easily surfaces. Addressing the underlying causes of anger enables you to disengage from destructive patterns and improve your relationships.

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.

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.

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.
