Anger usually comes as a result of feeling that something unfair is happening. Usually, individuals who experience anger problems, have mixed emotions and do not know how to properly communicate what those emotions are all bout, and end up reacting in ways that are less than desirable and this creates further conflict and regret. I invite individuals to look at the anger from a new and fresh perspective that allows them to understand the root cause of it. By understanding where the anger is coming from, individuals are then able to find lasting solutions that improve not only their feelings of anger, but also their communication skills and interactions with others.

Anger is a normal and healthy emotion and we all get angry from time to time. However, when anger turns destructive and/or self-destructive and brings problems into your personal and professional life, you need to seek support to learn how to manage your anger better. In the process, you will learn how to relieve the symptoms and recognize the signs of anger, increase your confidence and self esteem level, enjoy stronger and healthier relationships with your loved ones and coworkers, learn how to express yourself and your emotions with confidence and without anger, and live more balanced life both mentally and emotionally.

We all feel angry sometimes. Most of the time, we can deal with feelings of anger or irritability quickly. But when anger gets out of control, occurs frequently, and is mixed with aggression or violent behavior, we must do something about it! Uncontrolled anger can affect your personal, social well being and even your workplace, which will probably get you even angrier... Anger can be caused by several factors; it can also be your reaction to trauma, or to a painful experience. You may need to do ‘some digging’ to understand where the anger comes from, and to find strategies to manage better your Anger. I can help!

In an empathic and supportive environment I help the client understand where the underlying feelings and thoughts originate and loosen the stranglehold that this cycle previously held. Together with cognitive and behavioral strategies we develop new and healthy coping methods to manage these emotions more productively.

It can be frustrating to find our relationship being limited by angry reactions. Rage leaves us feeling out of control, and perhaps dealing with unfortunate consequences of actions caused by anger. There is help in finding how you would prefer to act, and to help create relationships at work or home that are mutually supportive. I respectfully help families and individuals to navigate regaining lives from the influence of anger, in ways that support each unique situation and perspectives. Together we explore triggers and supports for anger, even possibly unrecognized losses or values you are protecting, and consider how to make changes towards living as you would prefer. Serving Ottawa.

Anger is seen as a secondary emotion, which means that something underneath is causing this felt anger. When exploring the primary emotions that can trigger anger, understanding occurs, which is the first step to minimizing the intensity of anger. Anger has different intensities: mild, medium and high intensity. Being "bugged" is a mild intensity anger being felt, which is very different to a "wild with rage" high intensity anger.

Clients who address Anger in therapy can have profound relief in their day to day activities and mindsets. It is important to be aware of your triggers and feelings in the body anger produces. Sometimes we act in knee-jerk reactions or "autopilot" without even being conscious of what is creating difficulties for us. A knowledgeable professional such as myself can help you break angry cycles that lead to distress and feelings of unhappiness.

Anger is an important tool in our emotional toolbox. It helps us to determine when things are not as they should be, and the energy of anger can help us take action to change things. When anger gets out of control, however, it can be destructive to relationships and self esteem. I will work with you to identify what triggers your anger and what leads it to spin out of control, then help you to identify ways in which to regain control.

Although the scientific study of anger has received less attention than other emotional problems (e.g., anxiety or depression), there is evidence that some anger management programs are effective in reducing unhealthy anger and improving adaptive coping skills. Unfortunately, the quality of anger management programs is variable. Some are based on solid scientific research; others have not been subjected to study and may rely on unproven or even potentially harmful methods. My approach to Anger Management employs both a cognitive-behavioral and emotion focused approach. Participations’ are assess for their level of anger, review employed strategies for dealing with anger, discuss physiological an....

Anger management often has a negative connotation (primarily due to mainstream media), however it has the potential to be useful to most people. Anger management is not just useful for people who experience explosive aggression, it can be useful for those that are passive aggressive with their anger or tend to internalize as well. Working together on anger we will first examine your triggers for anger and patterns around when and how you react. We will also likely explore some of your family history to better understand how you have learned to express anger. Ultimately, after identifying the roots of your anger we will begin looking at alternative ways of reacting and responding.

Learning to manage your anger and express it in a healthy and positive way is a process. This process, through therapy or counselling, involves becoming self-aware - or learning where the anger really comes from. And also acquiring the skills or tools to express in a way that is healthy and constructive. I have been doing this work for nearly 30 years and is one of my specialty areas.

Anger is a friend in that it provides us with valuable information about ourselves and our surroundings. It can be understood as our emotional reaction to believing that either we or another have somehow been mistreated. it is most problematic in its expression rather than it its experience. Problematic expressions of anger present in varied forms, from passive forms to expressions of rage. We can learn to promote understanding of the meaning of our anger and the secondary emotions it triggers as well as how to develop alternative coping strategies.

Anger is just one of a wide range of emotions that we experience. It is often a way of coping with feelings of helplessness, vulnerability, or disappointment. It can be a signal that that your needs are not being met, and an opportunity to make positive changes. Anger that is not controlled, however, brings pain to everyone. I help clients to understand where their anger comes from and teach them Cognitive Behavioural strategies for managing it.

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.

By loosely following an eight-ten session Anger Management protocol, clients have the opportunity to not only gain effective tools for gaining control over their anger, but also to finally gain an understanding of it. Clients learn of the triggers, emotional/physical reactions, and self-beliefs that maintain unhealthy anger expression. By developing physical, emotional, and cognitive coping strategies, clients complete this program feeling in control, empowered, and grounded.

In addition to teaching some tips and tools for dealing with anger, I like to help the client get to the root of what is causing his/her anger. It's only when you get down to the cause and then help the person to make changes at this deeper level, that anger issues are dealt with in a more comprehensive and permanent fashion rather than the person being on best behaviour for a while with the likelihood of returning to previous patterns.

Anger and emotions management has long been an area of interest and specialization for me. Dating back to my undergrad I have studied anger as learned behavior, biological predisposition, and unfortunately as an outcome of childhood trauma. Men are taught that if they feel and express genuine emotions that they are whimps, among other pejorative terms. Anger and emotions management iwith me is a gentle supportive experience that coaches clients to experience and express healthy emotions. We will unpack and reframe past toxic behaviors, and experiences and learn healthy assertiveness. It is NOT judgement or contemptuous. Rather it is a supportive personal growth and change proces

Anger management counseling can help to identify stressors and learn the steps to stay calm in the face of anger. The goal is to handle tense situations in more constructive and positive ways by reducing the emotional and physical arousal that anger can cause. It will provide the tools to take back your life and resolve the triggers that result in unplanned anger reactions.

My intention is to support you. Anger is a mask, covering over our more vulnerable feelings of fear, sadness, or hurt underneath. Anger can also come out as an overreaction to a present situation, fueled by past hurts.. I can offer you relaxation exercises and handouts to help you heal & learn to let go. An important 1st step is to develop awareness of what your triggers are. Feelings of anger can also be positive, signalling to us that something in our lives needs to be changed . How do you want to deal with your anger so it is safe for others to be around you? How can you use your thinking as well as your heart to decide how you wish to respond to situations that trigger you?
