Anger can get triggered in situations where you feel disrespected, shamed, rejected, powerless, not heard, not valued, or not safe. My approach for helping clients reduce their anger is to identify past experiences that elicit anger, frustration, fear, shame or other upsetting emotions and negative thoughts now, and then to reprocess those memories with EMDR therapy. I have also helped clients understand why they feel they need to hold on to their anger and then work through the blocks to letting the anger go while still helping them find other ways to feel in control, heard, respected or safe. Note: I do not offer Anger Management classes to meet work or court ordered requirements.

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.

I can help you learn constructive ways to express your anger. Contact me today to receive a free article I’ve written about anger management.

A psychoanalytic approach to anger moves beyond cognitive and behavioral approaches and allows the client to speak to and work through the complex issues underlying anger specific to each individual. The intention is to effect change at a more lasting level than more generalized treatment allows. Within the psychoanalytic framework, we can also explore the application of mindfulness techniques such as breath work and mindful movement.

Anger Management Class Anger is a natural emotion that everyone experiences at one time or another, with different levels of frequency and intensity. From a biological perspective, anger is a necessary instinctive, physiological and psychological response to a perceived threat. Anger can become problematic when the situation that elicits it is unwarranted or when the anger experienced is out of proportion to the associated context. Anger can also become distressing and maladaptive when it leads to destructive behaviors, interpersonal conflicts, occupational difficulties, or legal complications. In light of the potentially devastating effects of unhealthy anger responses, anger management.

Anger & Temper Management are approached in a highly individualized manner--taking into account the client's background, personality factors, religious or spiritual beliefs, and their support system. This approach may include subconscious, unconscious, pre-conscious, &/or conscious techniques. This approach may also involve taking into account personality & emotional factors that are specific to the client. Most importantly, this approach takes into account the use of positive and negative triggers that can prevent an explosive reaction in the first place. It's a highly pro-active, pre-emptive approach.

If you find yourself feeling unusually angry at your partner, or feeling angry much of the time toward several other people, I can help you get to the bottom of your stewing anger. I can help you understand the reaction in the brain that makes you want to fight, as well as how sweeping it under the rug leads to blowing up. I can teach you ways to interrupt your anger before it builds and to express it in appropriate ways so that you can improve your relationships with others instead of damage them with anger. If you have been engaging in physically abusive/aggressive behavior, please seek help from a Family Violence Intervention Program.

Very often people find that their angry outbursts surprise them (and those around them). This occurs most often because we haven't dealt with the real source of the anger. Clients often try to convince themselves that they are "over it" or that "it doesn't matter" when, in fact, they aren't over it and it does matter. I see this quite a lot in women - who tend to be socialize not to show anger. Therefore it leaks out in more passive aggressive and subtle ways. It's still anger - but it can be inflicted on herself or the true reason for the anger can be veiled making it difficult for others to figure how why there is an outburst.

Anger is usually a more surface emotion for a deeper emotion such as fear or sadness. Anger can be like a flashing light on a dashboard of a car, indicating trouble inside. It is important to learn to diffuse and go to the root of this symptom. Looking at family of origin issues explains anger that many times seems inappropriate for current situations. I believe a person's past is the key to enjoying the present and fulfilling dreams of the future.
