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.

Anger in itself isn't a bad thing, it can allow you to express negative feelings or motivate you to resolve a problem. When anger isn't able to be controlled is when it becomes an issue. Counselling can help you to identify triggers, develop strategies to calm yourself, and communicate more effectively. Our counsellors will help address the underlying issues of your anger.

There can be a misconception that Anger is "bad" or "dirty", when in fact it is an emotion like all others. It is true, ANGER can be uncomfortable and lead to other difficulties that have an impact on one's life, relationships and functioning, however, it is not the emotion that leads to such challenges, rather, it is our response and actions that create the difficulty and judgment. In working with me at Growth Counselling Services, you and your challenges with anger will be met with acceptance, compassion, and understanding. We will therapeutically explore it's roots, while using an approach that allows you to make different choices that are in line with your established and personal values

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.

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.

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!

Whether we are quick to anger, or slow to rage, anger is not necessarily a bad thing. It’s an emotion, and like all emotions, what we do with them is what matters. Anger is one of the best teachers we have if we can pay attention to what it is trying to tell us. If anger is a challenge in your life, counseling can help you to discover what your anger is trying to teach you. Therapy provides a safe place to look beneath your anger to some of the difficult emotions that you may not want to encounter on your own. In counseling you can learn tools to manage your anger so that you can learn from your anger while not risking your relationships.

Anger is probably the most misunderstood emotions and also one of our most valuable tools. Many of us have expereinced anger as abusive, brutal or scary. But don't confuse the feeling of anger with it's expression. The flip side of anger is passion. When we are really anger we are very passionate! We care deeply about something. Regardless of how it looks, anger is always a call for change. If we understand it and use anger to work for us, it never has to become large or mean. Instead it is like an inner advocate working for us with clarity and firmness creating the changes we need. We will work with you to harness your anger and get it working for you rather than against you!

Do you experience anger on a regular basis. Does it impact your relationships? Do you want to learn new ways to deal with anger? I can help you rethink what anger is and how to respond to it. Anger is simply a series of bodily sensations connected to a premeditated thought bubble that loops a cycle that seems impossible to escape. Let's work on breaking that cycle.

“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!

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 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 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 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.

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.
