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 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.

I help clients unlock the negative cycle that anger and its accompanying behaviors may cause. 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.

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.

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.

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.

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?

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....

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.
