Perhaps you've noticed an increase in your irritability or quickness to jump to anger. Maybe loved ones have suggested that you could use help managing your anger. Through therapy, we will explore your triggers for anger and where that anger comes from on a deeper level. Together we will work on new ways of dealing with situations that have historically caused you anger, and new ways of managing the anger itself. I use a variety of methods in therapy to help you explore these things. We may look at how your thoughts influence your mood and behaviour; we may practice body strategies to cope. You will leave therapy with better ability to manage situations and your responses to them.

I struggle with the term "Anger Management".....why single out only this one issue to manage. Don't we all struggle to manage our anger? Anger is the outside emotion that we show others when we are often hurt, afraid or feel disrespected. Working on anger "issues" often entails a lot of work on communication and sharing of emotions in a respectful manner. I can help your "Anger Management" but will focus on a lot more then just your experience of anger.

Anger is like an iceberg. It is only the tip. The other nine-tenths remains hidden and unknown. We need to connect with the nine-tenths, or the primary feelings such as hurt, pain, guilt, shame and fear. I will work with you to unearth your primary feelings and to devise alternative ways to manage your feelings. A good book for you to read is Hold Me Tight by Susan Johnson, especially the chapter "Recognizing the Demon Dialogues."

We all have parts within us - angry, fearful, anxious, happy and so on. If we have angry parts of us there is usually something causing this reaction. I will listen attentively to your issues behind the anger and support you to take the ropes to see where it all stems from and what the underlying emotions are. From there we can unpack what it's all about and find other ways to cope and maneuver through to a more satisfying result.

Anger can be something that seems to sneak up on people from out of nowhere, however, this is not actually the case. Anger is a signal that something is wrong in your life and that underlying issues need to be dealt with. By resolving root causes and becoming aware of your unique triggers before they reach a crisis point you can learn to manage your anger in a positive and constructive way.

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.

Anger is a completely normal, often healthy human emotion. But if it gets beyond your control, it can be very destructive in your work and interpersonal relationships and can drastically devastate the quality of your life. Fortunately, anger can be 'managed' which is very different than 'suppressing' it. Unexpressed anger leads to a host of other problems including high blood pressure. However, when we learn how to 'manage' our anger, we can learn to diminish both the emotional feelings and the physiological arousal that anger causes. We can learn to avoid triggers and develop strategies. We can learn how to problem solve, change our thinking and relax our bodies.

A lot of my work is based on encouraging clients to incorporate allowing the flow of their feelings into their day-to-day lives. I believe that allowing healthy expressions of feelings will ultimately make space for other emotions which in turn makes people happier. Techniques that help allow the flow of feelings can include an anger bat, screaming into a pillow, dancing, art therapy, reiki, meditation or even journalling. It is trial and error before finding out what works best for a more enjoyable life.

A response to life's events falls upon a continuum from neutral to highly-reactive. At times anger, Gandhi called it "Righteous Indignation," is necessary to respond to injustices or inappropriate behaviours. However, uncontrolled, inappropriate anger is destructive to one's self and others. Mindfulness and Metta (Loving Kindness) meditations are excellent tools to deal with anger. Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT) also called Tapping, along with skillful use of affirmations can help to cool the fires of anger. The benefits of anger management lead to a regulating of emotions and thus a gaining of peace of mind, positive relationships, career and family security.

Some approaches may try and eliminate all conflict but research shows healthy relationships may indeed have conflict. Anger may feel as if you are living on the edge of a volcano. It is not the absence of conflict we want but a way to express our feelings in a way that does not hurt others or ourselves. Take a step off the volcano on to firmer ground and gain a handle on your feelings.

Anger affects people in different ways. Sometimes anger comes on so suddenly it feels like there's nothing you can do to prevent yourself from snapping or blowing up right away. Other times anger builds up over time, but if you have no way to release it or express it, it continues to grow until it become too much to bear and you end up lashing out. Regardless of how you experience anger, if anger is having negative consequences in your life I can help you learn to deal with your anger more effectively and reduce your anger, express your anger more productively, and to calm and let go of your anger before it becomes a problem.

Anger is something that is often linked to a difficulty in regulating ones emotions and thoughts. Mindfulness integrated Cognitive Behaviour Therapy helps regulate thoughts and emotions so they are not as reactive or uncontrollable. Having increased self confidence and self acceptance leads to increased self control which is also an outcome of anger management therapy.

There are 3 phases in working with Anger 1.Prevention- Attempts to forestall the very onset of anger. 2. Intervention- Aims to reduce the intensity or the duration of anger that has already ignited. 3. Postvention- Aims to discharge any residual anger. Emotions are regulated by re-experiencing, releasing, or converting them into a safe form. We will not only focus on your cognitions and behaviors as entry points but also focus on the modification of affect (your emotions). Anger is an emotion. To have no room in therapy for the feeling component of this emotion is to deny its very essence, your existence. Gestalt perspective- Expression of anger can be very productive. Let out!

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.

Anger can be such a frustrating emotion sometimes leaving us feeling shameful for even feeling that way. Men and women are often taught different messages about anger as they are growing up, impacting our experience and delivery of anger as an adult. Anger is a real and valid emotion, but how we express it can sometimes lead to problems. The benefit of working with me is that the emotion of anger does not intimidate me and I am willing to go to those heights with you so that you can learn new ways to express your anger. Heights such as using a kickboxing bag if it will bring you the breakthrough that you have been searching for. Your success matters to me and I know we can figure this out!
