Anger is a primary feeling that signals when we perceive that our boundaries are crossed. It is a normal, healthy response that cannot be avoided in relationships. Like a compass, it gives us direction in relating to those around us. For best outcomes, it is essential to learn to deal with our anger using productive and mindful strategies. The healthy expression of anger is not hurtful, aggressive or repressed. Rather, it can be used to deal with conflict and set the parameters for negotiating in healthy ways, making room for everyone’s needs.

Anger management is a series of preventative and reactionary steps that help us regulate our emotions. While anger management is about executing these skills, the successful implementation depends on a foundational understanding of what anger is and how it operates in one’s life. Without understanding angers unique roots for each individual, anger management techniques become especially challenging to implement. My approach to anger management involves establishing a foundational understanding of anger by examining personal underlying fears and needs. With this foundation set, the individual is able to integrate a personal understanding of anger consistently with strategies and techniques.

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."

Having feelings of anger, yet exercising behavior that is respectful of others and solves problems is the desired goal of anger management. With this in mind, I help clients to learn what triggers their anger, and how to regulate expressions of anger and related behavior. Some of the common triggers for anger include hurt, frustration and fear. What is unhealthy is the tendency to blame others for these triggers and believe that you have the right to express yourself in an aggressive manner. Only you are responsible for your life.

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 is a natural and important emotion that informs us of our inner needs that are not being met. It helps us affirm and defend our rights. Often though, it is not our anger that becomes problematic, it is our outward expression of that anger. Do you express it in an affirmative and productive way? Or is it expressed in an aggressive and violent way? If so, you're probably not getting your needs met and you are most likely experiencing difficulties in your relationship as a result. I can help give you strategies on how to better express your anger while maintaining your integrity and your relationships. I work with children, teens and adults who need practical tools to manage their anger.

Whether you struggle with explosive anger; tend to be reactive and defensive or take things too personally; find yourself feeling resentful, bitter or irritable; tend to collapse or give up in the face of conflict; or bottle things up only to have them resurface later in inappropriate ways, our team can help. Accepting your feelings and body sensations as valuable information; identifying the underlying causes, triggers, and cues of your anger; learning emotion and impulse regulation skills; expressing your feelings and needs more effectively; and setting healthy boundaries assertively are important skills to help you understand, embody and channel your anger in healthy ways.

Therapy for anger management can be helpful for both your close relationships and the workplace. Therapy integrates strategies to regulate emotion, tolerate distress, and express frustrations in a manner that is respectful. If your anger difficulties occur exclusively within the context of a romantic relationship, couple’s therapy or therapy with a couple’s therapist can be particularly helpful. New Leaf Psychology Centre also offers anger management therapy for children and youth.

Anger is a normal human emotion that all of us have experienced at some point in our lives. This feeling of anger is neither right or wrong, good or bad – it’s just a feeling, it's what we do with our actions that counts. If your anger has escalated to the point where your actions have become out of control and you have experienced damaged relationships, problems at work, at home or school, legal and financial concerns and health issues directly related to your anger, it is possible that you can learn how to take control of your emotions instead of your emotions controlling you. I can help you by using empirically-proven techniques to help you gain control of your life.

Anger management is needed when anger becomes a problem in school, the workplace, your relationships and/or family. Anger is a natural human emotion, often signalling something needs to change. The problem for most of us humans, is that when really angry, our problem solving is often reduced and all we do is blame, verbally attack or spew anger to those around us, making relationships difficult. It's important to learn strategies to keep your anger in check and develop healthy outlets for your anger. There may also be medical (see your doctor), and psychological (depression) factors that can contribute to anger. Counselling can help.

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.
