Anger is a natural and, at times, a necessary emotion. However, our society places constraints on the ways we are permitted to express our anger. Additionally, children, adolescents and adults differ in what they need in order to learn how to deal with and express their anger. I offer effective methods to help you learn to release and express your anger in healthy ways that work for you as an individual.

Anger is a healthy emotion that lets us know that something in our environment is threatening or distressing. Feeling angry indicates that we need to protect ourselves from something. When you get angry your heart rate increases, blood pressure goes up, and your hormones are affected. While anger is healthy, some people struggle to express and manage their anger safely. The main approaches to managing anger include expressing, suppressing, and calming. Working with a therapist can help you learn how to express your anger safely by identifying the causes and learning calming techniques to help you feel more in control.

Dysregulation in the nervous system is the inability to modulate emotional and behavioral responses, as a result of development derailment or shock trauma, which manifests in many disorders including Anger. A neurobiological approach to healing allows individuals to experience joy, closeness in relationships and vitality and resilience in the body.

To work with anger we dive into the anger. We discuss past circumstances, current dynamics contributing to the anger, and triggers. We work on awareness of the body (i.e. muscle regulation); feeling and regulating emotions; and using mindfulness or cognitive behavioural therapy to work with the mind. Also, we focus on self-expression and how to communicate in a calmer more productive way.

Anger is a healthy emotion that can point out when we’re being taken advantage of or hurt, showing us where we need to make changes in our lives. When anger turns to aggression, however, and we start hurting people or animals in our lives it’s up to us to take responsibility for our actions and ask for help. Often when anger regularly turns to rage there is a history of experiences that has created harmful patterns for ourselves and others. I can help you uncover what your warning signs are and give you tools that you can use to gain control. We can then explore where these patterns are coming from so that you can create lasting change and healing.

When someone is struggling with anger, it negatively affects not only themselves, but their relationships as well. Conflict with workplace colleagues or loved ones can have a ripple effect which then produces even more frustration and can cause the cycle to worsen. Addressing symptoms is important once you understand the patterns creating it. We offer a proven solution to anger by eliminating its source – you can’t stop a volcano once it’s already erupting! We say, don’t try to just ‘manage’ your anger like an employee that’s not working for you, just ‘fire’ it instead! Call today for more information.

I will first work to assess and help you gain more self-awareness of how your body is dealing with the anger. You may notice that you are getting stuck in highly activated states (anxiety, anger, guilt, sadness, inability to control your emotions) or that your body is experiencing more shut down “stuck” states such as heaviness, numbness, blank mind, brain fog, overall blah feeling, and a sense of hopelessness or despair. From there I will help you connect to own inner resources so that you regain control over your body. You will learn how to calm yourself down and shift from highly emotional states or shutdown states to more relaxed states that elicit a sense of safety and security.

Anger is a normal human emotion. It bubbles up to give us an important message. It is when anger is accompanied with aggression, or when we find ourselves unable to shift out of anger, that it becomes problematic. While work with each client is individualized based on their unique life experiences, work with anger often starts with developing emotion regulation, and psycho-education on the cycle and process of anger.

A response to life's events falls upon a continuum from neutral to highly-reactive. At times anger, Gandhi called it "Righteous Indignation," is necessary to respond to injustices or inappropriate behaviours. However, uncontrolled, inappropriate anger is destructive to one's self and others. Mindfulness and Metta (Loving Kindness) meditations are excellent tools to deal with anger. Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT) also called Tapping, along with skillful use of affirmations can help to cool the fires of anger. The benefits of anger management lead to a regulating of emotions and thus a gaining of peace of mind, positive relationships, career and family security.
