Anger is a natural, normal emotion, it is even healthy for us to react with anger when someone threatens us or our dignity. But rage is dangerous to everyone. I instruct my clients in identifying triggers, making a plan for when a "button" is pushed. I believe in developing strategies to manage anger productively and prevent explosive episodes in the future. I discuss relaxation techniques, cognitive strategies to reframe situations, and communication techniques. I employ various homework assignments for clients to process anger. We also explore the origins of anger, so often tied in with loss or emotional pain, and talk about striving for acceptance and forgiveness.

Rightful anger has an important place in life where and when it must be expressed. However, there are many forms of anger that are internally destructive and can become externally dangerous to ourselves and others. Some forms of anger come from long term contentious relationships and occurrences which can never go away or decrease in pain and agitation. Some forms of anger are explosive on the moment and other anger comes as a gradual escalating irritation that then reaches its limits. Counseling serves to teach skills of anger management and can defuse and even prevent out of control anger from erupting. Counseling is known to be very effective for addressing and safely controlling anger.

God created us with the capacity for anger, and for good reason. Through anger, we strive to protect our worth, get needs met, and maintain the beliefs we hold on to as important. The Bible tells us to be angry; yet, not to sin in our anger (Psalm 4:4). How is such a thing even possible? KCM offers a comprehensive approach to anger management.

Philip Kolba, MA

Psychotherapist

I provide individual psychotherapy for anger management. Anger is normal emotion that everyone experiences. It becomes a problem when one expresses anger inappropriately or one lacks the proficiency to express any emotions but anger. I use Humanistic and Dialectical Behaviour Therapy (DBT) to help my clients understand their anger, improve their emotional experience, and express their emotions in healthy ways. A healthy emotional life is the cornerstone of living a full and successful life.

Kevin Fleming Ph.D.

Coach/Change Agent/Consultant

At Home or Private Discreet Intensives

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.
