Anger is one of the more destructive emotions in one’s life. It ends relationships, marriages, and careers, and brings daily suffering to the angry person. Techniques of “counting to 10” “venting anger” and “going for a walk” are not effective to resolve anger. To successfully overcome anger, we go to the root of our anger and change the self-talk that causes our anger. There are effective tools to learn and accomplish this.

Anger management is many times mandated by the court system, family members, love interests, or individuals themselves who desire personal growth. This is advantageous for healthier relationships including a better relationship with yourself. Once this is established, you will reintroduce yourself to the gentle spirit that exists within you that may have become clouded through the years. You will feel calm knowing that surrendering is to win without always having to do damage control. This is a true waste of time and energy.

I have extensive experience working with anger management. While working in rehab, I provided two groups per week regarding anger management. Anger can be a difficult emotion that can lead to inappropriate verbal and physical outbursts. It can be difficult for parents to deal with when their children are destroying objects or hurting one another, or themselves. Children also tend to copy how parents express anger. I have worked with many parents who are worried about their children becoming verbally aggressive, only to find that they themselves have difficulty expressing anger appropriately. Treatment for anger involves recognizing physical symptoms, thinking, and patterns of behavior.

Sometimes anger and the inability to being able to cope really helps magnify addiction issues. Before substance or alcohol addiction can be addressed, the root cause needs to be examined. Our Licensed Professionals would ensure that all avenues would be explored in order to achieve changes in behavior. Then other issues can be address.

Almost everyone acts in ways that seem to make sense to them, and to serve their needs and wishes. My approach to anger management is to supply strategies that better enable people to see that excess anger does not make sense, and does not serve their their needs and wishes. Indeed, it usually sabotages their progress to attain their goals. From there, people quite naturally alter their behavior so as to help themselves. It is neither necessary nor desirable for me to attempt to change their behavior, because they will almost always do what makes sense to them.

Anger management is “the process of learning to recognize signs that you are becoming angry and taking action to calm down and deal with the situation in a productive way.” Anger Management is a way of helping children and teens better regulate themselves. It is a process that promotes their ability of becoming aware of their feelings and reactions and, at the same time, develops healthier and more adequate strategies for them to better manage difficult situations. Thus, allowing individuals to learn how to relax, reorganize their thoughts and act more positively.

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.
