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?

Problematic expressions of anger present in varied forms, from passive forms to expressions of rage. We can learn to promote understanding of the meaning of our anger and the secondary emotions it triggers as well as how to develop alternative coping strategies.

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.

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.

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.

Anger and emotions management has long been an area of interest and specialization for me. Dating back to my undergrad I have studied anger as learned behavior, biological predisposition, and unfortunately as an outcome of childhood trauma. Men are taught that if they feel and express genuine emotions that they are whimps, among other pejorative terms. Anger and emotions management iwith me is a gentle supportive experience that coaches clients to experience and express healthy emotions. We will unpack and reframe past toxic behaviors, and experiences and learn healthy assertiveness. It is NOT judgement or contemptuous. Rather it is a supportive personal growth and change proces

Clients presenting with anger issues have a personal history, family-of-origin history in which anger has been distorted and thus de-legitimated in some way. To be effective, any clinical approach to this emotion must include identifying and deconstructing the foundational components buried and sanitized in the client’s subconscious mind, yet continue, repeatedly to constrain their growth. Effective unravelling of personal history benefits the client in terms of understanding, self-awareness, and self-forgiveness.

Anger is seen as a secondary emotion, which means that something underneath is causing this felt anger. When exploring the primary emotions that can trigger anger, understanding occurs, which is the first step to minimizing the intensity of anger. Anger has different intensities: mild, medium and high intensity. Being "bugged" is a mild intensity anger being felt, which is very different to a "wild with rage" high intensity anger.

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....

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.

We all feel angry sometimes. Most of the time, we can deal with feelings of anger or irritability quickly. 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. You may need to do ‘some digging’ to understand where the anger comes from, and to find strategies to manage better your Anger. I can help!

Anger is just one of a wide range of emotions that we experience. It is often a way of coping with feelings of helplessness, vulnerability, or disappointment. It can be a signal that that your needs are not being met, and an opportunity to make positive changes. Anger that is not controlled, however, brings pain to everyone. I help clients to understand where their anger comes from and teach them Cognitive Behavioural strategies for managing it.
