Anger is a reaction to other intense emotional feelings such as sadness, powerlessness, fear and humiliation. It's a way to protect ourselves, yet when not resolved often leads to isolation and loss of significant relationships. Anger management is not only about learning the skills to keep better control and "manage" these feelings more effectively, but uncovering the core issues that are fueling that anger.

Anger is a healthy and normal emotion; it's how we express our anger that can make it problematic in our relationships. Moreover, anger is considered a secondary emotion. This means, there is a more primary emotion that underlies and fuels our anger. Learning to manage our anger in a more productive, healthy and adaptive fashion will first mean identifying the deeper emotions that often remain outside of our awareness. What might be at the core of your anger....fear? hurt? feelings of helplessness or needing to feel heard by your partner?

"Sticks and stones will break my bones, but your words will break my heart." Many people with anger issues know the damage that can be done to a relationship with even one outburst. Mastering anger is necessary to having the affection and trust of the people we care about. It has been accurately referred to as 'restraint of pen and tongue' in some literature. While it may seem like an effort one undertakes for others, the primary benefits are to the person who handles their anger. If you are reading this, and the thought "I wouldn't get angry if so-and-so didn't do such-and-such" consider yourself a primary candidate for this work. Discovering how to escape from anger will set you free.

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.

Has someone told you that you are getting way too stressed out about things?I will help you learn to communicate your thoughts without becoming confrontational. Do you even know what your positive traits are anymore? We’ll discuss them and also that anger is more of a secondary emotion to more primary feelings such as fear, guilt, shame, powerlessness, or sadness. Together, we will identify the triggers that upset you, so that you can be more self-aware and develop coping skills. Reducing anger will improve your self-image, patience, interactions with family and career success, while reducing health issues such as headache and backaches.

Anger can present itself when you least expect it. You can be with family and friends at a school or work outing. You can be on a date and your spouse or significant other does something to set you off. I work with individuals and families in identifying those triggers, exploring the origins and the emotional connections and utilizing cognitive behavioral therapy to address the un-healthy and often off-putting interactions.
