In 30 years of helping people, I have found that how we handle our feelings is a major contributor to our joy, pleasure and success in life, not just in relationships but pursuing our work and our goals as well. Anger can be a powerful motivator or an obstacle in getting what we want. I have an approach for understanding the healthy purpose of anger, and becoming aware of and in control of your natural physiological arousal process so that your angry behavior can stop getting in the way of what you really want. You can obtain the tools and resources to work with this arousal process, giving you more choices and chances to succeed, rather than letting anger take away those choices.

Have you been struggling to control your anger? Have you been told by a significant other that your anger is a problem and that you need to get help? Has your employer told you that you cannot return to work until you have gotten your anger under control? If you can answer yes to any of the previous questions, it is a good time to seek help. Many people who have difficulty managing their anger struggle with not having other ways to express their frustrations and show their emotions. We can work together to increase the tools you have available and get your life back on track.

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."

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.

“I’m always mad – I lose my temper so easily. I’m just like my Dad and my grandfather – I inherited it from them! While it may be comforting to blame anger on inherited traits, anger is often better seen as a learned emotion. If you feel (or have been told) your anger is out of control, let’s work together to uncover your triggers and what is behind them. From there we’ll look at techniques which will best help you ‘un-learn’ your anger!

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.

Anger "regulation" rather than anger management or control is the key concept here! Rhonda uses emotion focused and cognitive techniques to help her clients to gain insight into their subconscious motivations and to identify, accept and use a broader range of emotion in honouring ways. Clients examine how they feel about their feelings and learn new skills to process and regulate emotions in healthy ways.

Anger is one of our most basic human emotions- we all feel angry at times. Anger is an emotion worth listening to because it can be a signal that something is wrong in your relationships or that you are not properly addressing other important issues in your life. Sometimes we suppress emotions such as anger because we do not understand it; we have not been taught how to effectively resolve it or we are afraid of it. Anger can be triggered by past abuses coming to the surface, fear or for your protection. In therapy we can learn about your specific anger reactions, the causes for your anger and learn ways to better to react when we feel angry.

Anger is a normal emotion.It does not need to be "managed". It needs to be understood. Usually anger masks hurt. An examination of anger can uncover hurts and vulnerabilities which need to be better expressed. Often anger turns into aggression, which is the attempt to control another person. It is the aggression which needs to be managed while the anger/hurt needs understanding and acceptance. In addition we must be able to tolerate hurt in order to learn and grow in a relationship. Often the hurts arise because our partner sees things differently from ourself. For a relationship to be successful we have to be able to make room for the other person.

All emotions, including anger, are normal and healthy. Sometimes, anger can motivate us to take action when needed. Other times, it can cause tension, stress and suffering for ourselves and for others. Cognitive behavioural counselling helps people understand, accept and cope more effectively with anger. Denying or suppressing anger can make us sick and often results in chronic irritability, but by gaining perspective and responding to anger in more constructive ways, we can decrease outbursts. This often results in feeling happier and more confident, while reducing guilt, resentment and overall stress. Relationships, physical and mental health may also improve.
