Anger is a natural reaction to one's boundaries being crossed. It is an important emotion and it has a place. It becomes problematic when it is expressed inappropriately (such as in an exaggerated or a physical way) or when it becomes a stand in emotion for other feelings such as sadness or hurt. I work with my clients to develop insight into why they respond with anger in the ways that they have historically. I also help my clients develop the ability to catch themselves before they get to the point of no return with their anger. Once they have this skill, we work on appropriate and adaptive ways of expressing anger as well as the other feelings which sometimes underly anger.

While anger is a normal response to feeling hurt, afraid, out of control, disappointed, and let down, it can damage self-esteem and destroy relationships. Maureen helps clients explore the causes and nature of their anger, and provides specific and effective strategies for management. By changing one's destructive patterns of communication and behaviour, relationships with both self and others can be deeply enhanced.

Unmanaged anger can interfere with your relationships, your self esteem, and your job. With gentle support and challenge I will help you explore the root of your anger, the belief systems that support your behaviours, and how you can recognize your anger before it becomes translated into acting out. Using self regulation skills, self awareness, and mindfulness skills, you will learn that you have choices in how you recognize and express your feelings. Anger can be a healthy emotion, but can also be destructive when it takes over.

Many people have not learned to honor their true feelings and so when they feel vulnerable, scared, hurt, disappointed, they don't know what else to do--except act out in anger as a defense. Life is richer by far, when one learns to honor and express feelings appropriately. There is a place for anger--it signals that something is the matter! Learn how to attend and honor your inner resources, and how to express anger without harming others or self.

Anger is a very misunderstood emotion. The feeling of anger can tell us important things about ourselves, about the situations we are facing, and about the people with whom we are in relationship. I will help you better understand your feelings of anger, to manage your response to them, and to behave in constructive ways to change situations that continue to be destructive.

I am honoured that you are interested in my services and I would like to tell you a little bit about myself. I have been described as slightly non-conventional in the counselling world, which suits me perfectly, and also tends to suit youth who are trying to stand up to the force of the problems in their life. I am very comfortable working with this population, and I feel fortunate that I can connect with teens the way I do, conventionally or in a way that makes sense to them.

Anger is our strong feeling of annoyance or displeasure when something doesn’t go our way. The reasons we get angry can be perfectly plain – or they can be a mystery. Anger can also become a habit, a stance we hold. Life puts us in difficult situations – anger may be an understandable response to your situation. But you can develop some choices about how you respond. I work with people to identify what sets them off, and to find ways to redirect situations and feelings. Do you turn your anger outwards or inwards? We consider the factors involved (relationship, family issues, life stress, job, habits, etc.), and figure out what needs to change to let you live with more satisfaction.

What Clients are saying: "You were able to put my mind at ease even though I was very nervous about the first session. I didnt feel judged and was able to learn how to express my feelings better so that I wouldnt get mad as easy. I didnt realize that I had so many expectations on myself and was setting myself to get mad at everyone else. Thanks for teaching me about boundaries and how to love myself and other people with limits. Im not as stressed out and dont get mad like I used to."

Anger is not an abnormal reaction, but did you know that it is most often not your first response? In other words, it's what is generated when your first emotional reaction to something or someone isn't identified and dealt with. I help people to understand their primary emotions and then find ways to express them with greater clarity and healthier actions. We'll also explore when anger is appropriate and how you can use that energy to confront whatever you see as the cause in a safer, more effective way. You will never look at anger the same way again.

Anger protects us. It is much easier to get mad than it is to express vulnerability. Think of it like an iceberg: the anger is the small part poking above the ocean that others can see. Underneath the surface can be all kinds of other emotions: fear, longing, dissatisfaction, worry, loneliness, or loss, to name a few. Peeking under the surface can be scary. As a counsellor, I take my lead from you. (I'm not going to go poking anywhere you don't want to go!) But, by working together, I can teach you how to recognize what is really going on (hint: it's usually not the anger!). Then, when you are ready, we can figure out what you can do instead to get your needs met.

Anger is one of the most common emotional states we encounter. We often have trouble expressing anger in a manner that represents the true feelings. Rather, we can get hostile and act out these feelings often in ways that compromise our most important relationships. Counselling can help recognize the different qualities of anger, the more fundamental emotions associated to anger, and finally, how to cope, manage and even use your anger as a means of becoming closer to the people you care most about.

Anger can be a very uncomfortable feeling, and when acted out, can cause a lot of damage in our relationships. We tend to have a belief that anger has to either be expressed or suppressed. I work with people to enable them to experience their anger in an authentic way, without having to act it out, or stuff it down, but in a way that they can listen to the wisdom inherent in their anger and live out their relationships in a harmonious manner.

Anger is a natural human response and perhaps the most misunderstood emotion. It can both serve and protect us - but left unchecked, it can lead to serious problems – damaging relationships, jeopardizing careers, and leaving us feeling out of control. Many of us were never taught what to do with anger, aside from bottling it up or acting it out. But there is another way. In my work, I help people to develop insight into the roots of their relationship with anger, and learn skills to authentically express it. Anger is often compared with fire, and as the saying goes, ‘fire is a good servant but a bad master.’ Together, we can work toward getting the fire under control.

The more you feel out of control in your life, the more likely you are to feel angry. Unless you can identify and share your sense of powerlessness. This often takes a retraining of values but leads to personal empowerment once you learn that you can have "power with" rather than "power over" another person. There are a number of techniques to promote postiive changes fairly quickly including the recognition of one's negative self-talk and replacing it with self-soothing inside,

Are you moody or feel like your emotions are on a roller coaster? Do you have angry outbursts? Do you have road rage? These are all indicators of anger coming out sideways. We are accustomed to not being direct with the person or issue that is directly causing the anger and we bottle it up and let it out sideways. I can help you quickly identify the root cause of the anger and then process it with words and feelings in a safe environment. The benefit is a deeper sense of calm and the ability to notice your anger before it takes control of you and comes out sideways. I will help teach you to be direct with your anger.

Anger can feel like a sudden and overwhelming force within us or it can be experienced as a persistent, festering feeling that never seems to go away. Often anger is an indication of unmet needs that can stem from as far back as early childhood. I provide a space to explore these hidden emotions and needs within and offer practical tools and strategies for managing anger productively.

Anger is one of the emotions we are biologically wired for. Yet, just like any other emotion, it can get out of control. We can become addicted to anger, missing, without realizing it, the fuller pallet of human emotional experience, missing good human connections because of poorly contained anger. My approach is complex in that it will help you understand the roots of anger, placing it in the context of your life. It will help you learn practical ways to recognize, contain and safely express anger. I find that working with both mind and body awareness is particularly helpful in healing anger. By learning how to work with anger safely, you will find that your life is much happier.

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.

Providing informal/unpaid care for a person with a dementia leads many to feeling extreme frustration and often anger. This is very common, yet caregivers often feel fear, guilt, and shame when they become angry. Some caregivers have never felt strong anger before, and some caregivers may feel anger directed at the person they are providing care for. This is an area that many caregivers are reluctant to reach out for help with; at the same time, it is important to do so in order to work through feelings of anger and to develop practical strategies that will allow caregivers to gain confidence that they will not 'lose control'.

Anger is a universal emotion. We first experienced anger as a very young child. Often our anger told us that we were feeling like a boundary had been crossed. This might show up in being hit by our parents, or being blamed for something we didn't do, or even being made fun of by another, causing us to feel less than those around us. There is nothing wrong with feeling the emotion of Anger. What we need to be aware of is how we show our anger to others. Some find their anger feelings literally hijack them into behaviors that may range from inappropriate to dangerous. Education and therapy can help you develop mastery and awareness over your past default mechanisms that no longer work.

Anger is an emotion that can be necessary to protect yourself in life threatening situations or when being treated in hurtful and harmful ways. Yet other times, underlying emotions or misunderstandings may be causing your anger. Your emotions are natural and normal, but you may be acting on them or acting out because of them. In these times, anger can be destructive and alienate you from significant people and life opportunities that you desire. Learning about anger, developing strategies to manage anger and exploring the other emotions and causes of your anger, are ways that we can work together to manage anger.

Anger, like other emotions, helps us to respond to our experiences and to meet our needs. However, we can get into trouble in our relationships and with the law if we express our anger inappropriately. Anger may be used to control others by frightening them. Anger can be destructive and can make us physically unwell. In anger management counseling we will try to identify the triggers to your anger and I will coach you in methods of appropriate anger release. To understand the pattern of your anger and where your anger comes from we will look at the story of your life from your earliest memory. With better control of your reactions when you are upset you will be much happier and healthier.
