Anger is a normal emotion for humans, but sometimes it overtakes other effective emotions and behaviors. Intense and uncontrollable anger that negatively impacts relationships and work should be addressed with expert services. Once you are in a pattern of difficult-to-control anger, outside assistance is needed to disarm it and integrate more comforable ways to react and cope. Seek counseling quickly to avoid further problems and long-term issues associated with anger. Many effective approaches exist to conquer overwhelming anger, such as Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy. Re-patterning a balanced array of emotions is very possible once you initiate services.

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 use a pyscho educational approach with working with anger management. In that I teach about anger being a secondary emotion that often protects hurt and fear. We go through the anger cycle and ways to change that cycle. The goal is help clients move from destructive behaviors to constructive communication and behaviors. A typical anger management process takes four to six sessions.

Annoyed, aggravated, irritated, frustrated, hostile, infuriated, and full of rage. What do all these words have in common? These words all fall on the emotional spectrum of anger. Anger is not an unhealthy emotion, but sometimes people express their anger in an unhealthy manner. There are alternative healthy ways of expressing and managing one's anger. Karen partners with her clients to explore the reasons for their anger, and then teaches the clients how to manage or release anger in healthy ways.

If you answered yes to any of the above questions, it may be time to consider anger management therapy. Anger issues are common and the first step towards change is admittance of the problem.

The key to anger management is learning not to respond to the small things in life. It is learning to focus on impulse control with emotions and learning to filter the impact of words. Not controlling anger will cause a lifetime of chaotic and destructive relationships. Another focus of anger management counseling is to heal the emotional hurts and trust issues that brought you to a place where your natural tendency is be defensive towards others instead of accepting and loving.

Anger is a completely normal human emotion that turns destructive when it gets out of control. Anger is an emotional state that varies from mild irritation to intense fury and rage. It can be caused by both external and internal events. When anger gets out of control it causes problems in your personal relationships, the workplace, and in the quality of your life. Some people get angry more easily and more intensely than others. These people can express their anger in loud ways or express it by being chronically irritable, grumpy, socially withdrawn, or getting physically ill. Expressing your anger in an assertive manner is healthy. If anger is not allowed an outward expression it can turn inward on you causing hypertension, high blood pressure,...(view profile to read more)

You know your anger has made real messes in your life--at work, with friends, in your love life. I can show you many ways to get to the roots of your dark demons and fiery dragons. There are reasons and excuses that have been fueling your anger and you can only benefit from studying yourself. Saying you are sorry hasn't stopped your anger from returning. Anger that you understand and manage can serve you. Without looking inside yourself, anger will control you and cost you a lot more than time and money.

Anger is an emotion that can be very hard to manage and respond to effectively because most people often have a very automatic and impulsive response when they experience anger. Through dialectical behavioral therapy (DBT) we can begin to identify emotions and begin to slow down in order to recognize ways to respond to emotions rather than react to them. This will help you feel more in control of your emotions as well as improve your relationships with others because of your ability to manage and respond to anger effectively.

Children can say the darnedest things and sometimes parents aren't prepared for them. When possible, we can curb explosive anger through parent strategies alone. And at other times it takes a 2 pronged approach of both parent strategies and children learning skills. We offer both parent training and skill based learning to support appropriate expression of feelings and productive problem solving.

If after getting a flat tire, you think and continue to say to yourself: "This sucks"…This is terrible"…"Why does this always happen to me?"…"I can’t stand it"… anger will be the likely emotional response. And if you typically think in a negative way, then you will likely be more prone to psychological and physical difficulties like anger, poor relationships, stroke and heart disease.On the other hand, someone who thinks to himself "I’m glad that I have a spare tire"…"I can handle this"…"This is a hassle, not a horror", will react in a more realistic manner. Cognitive behavioral therapy can help you learn how to cope more effectively with life's challenges and lead a happier life.

Anger is not bad by itself. Getting adrenaline drunk though, can give you power at the time, but can also be destructive. Other types of anger may be hidden from view, but slowly eat away at your happiness. I can help you find your triggers, understand how they affect you, and work with you to develop coping tools to both prevent and recover from the stress hormones that accompany anger.

Destructive, uncontrolled anger damages relationships, marriages, children, entire families, career advancement...and oneself. It can destroy lives. Anger needs management, harnessing & work to use its energy for productive lives. Good can come out of the chaos - it takes work and a commitment to change. It is possible. My clients learn to control anger, use the energy for good and repairing damage to relationships. Whether dealing with current or past events, or both, my clients learn to make sense out of their lives and move past and forward in ways that bring personal and relational health, healing and practical ways to move to better places in their lives & the lives of others.
