While anger management programs are helpful, most never get to the root of the individual's personal issues or triggers. I work with both men and women to realize learned behaviour and personal belief systems that continue to cause problems. I will work with you on your own individual triggers that lead to anger and help you learn how to better identify and change the thoughts and feelings that are leading to the angry behaviour.

Emotions serve a very important purpose, they help guide us, but all too often they get ignored, pushed aside, or asked to take a back seat. I believe it is important to have a space where our emotions can be understood, explored, and validated. Anger is often the result of emotions that have been denied, misunderstood, and shut down. My approach to emotion regulation and anger management is to help build our understanding of what these emotions are trying to tell us, learn to use this information in valuable beneficial ways, and build on resilience and coping strategies to assist in improving interpersonal relationships.

Anger is a reactive emotion that is usually the result of the underlying emotion of saddess or depression. Before you can treat the underlying issues you have to learn to control the anger. Treatment for anger management frequently includes; learning what anger is, identifing triggers, recognizing physical signs, learning th respond to anger appropriately, and then dealing with underlying feelings.

I have worked in a group setting with men who have power and control issues. I believe in safety in families, and compassion for all. The work starts with taking responsibility for our actions and the effects they have on others. I believe people are capable of change and therapy can be an invitation to growth in responsibility, empathy and behaviour change. I would address the emotional root of the problem and help you understand why anger leads to aggression.

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

Does your head hurt, do you clench your jaw, or do you feel 'depressed'? Have you found yourself reacting in anger, yelling, screaming, throwing things around, punching walls and even hurting other people, specially your loved ones and then regretting it? Are any of the above behaviours getting you into trouble? Adela can facilitate your anger management. Learn to express how you feel in a constructive, compassionate, non-violent way. Reconstruct your relationships and be trusted again!

Anger is an intense feeling that is rarely a primary one. That means it is often not anger that you experience but rather, that it is masking something else. It may be fear, feeling out of control, misunderstood by others. Let's talk about why people anger you, getting to the masked, softer feelings. You can then deiced whether or not to begin sharing these softer feelings with close people in your life. I think you will find this brings vulnerability into your life, allowing others to feel close to you and therefore, get the intimacy you crave.

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 a common and useful emotional reaction. However, there are times when anger is excessive or extreme and controls a person to the point that it is hurtful to them, their life, and their loved ones. I work with clients to understand their experience of anger, learn to identify potential triggers and underlying issues, and develop coping skills to manage these issues and emotions. Clients will learn relaxation or calming strategies, how to communicate to reduce angry outbursts, problem solving skills, and how to alter negative thinking which may be contributing to the anger. This often results in clients feeling happier, more relaxed, and having improved relationships.

There are many reasons why people get angry. Being able to feel angry is normal and healthy. However, how people respond to anger determines if they are being appropriate or not. Through anger management counselling, I can help you understand the source of your anger, how to respond to anger effectively and appropriately, and how to enjoy your life is such a way that your feelings serve to communicate awareness of your environment versus controlling your thoughts and behaviour. Through counselling you can become "in control" versus being controlling. I can help you to resolve conflict effectively and to express yourself assertively versus passively or aggressively.

We start by identifying your anger triggers & things you have to be angry about. We identify your anger style, including behaviours you engage in when angry. We identify where anger happens in your body & work to help you start to see clues when your anger is starting to manifest. We help you improve your emotional language and vocabulary. We identify new ways you might react to anger. We will explore together your anger process, including analyzing instances when you were angry, the thoughts you had, the related feelings, & the behaviour you engaged in as a result. We will talk about "anger up, anger down," identifying the things you say to yourself that either increases or decrease anger.

Anger can be healthy. It lets you know when something is wrong or needs to change. Anger is a problem when it hurts others, physically or emotionally, or when it gets in the way of relationships. Understanding the source of your anger, and the early warning signs in your body that anger is brewing can help you calm before it becomes a problem. If your anger is causing problems for you or people you care about please contact me, you can feel better.

We all experience anger, it is a normal feeling that helps us move forward and beyond unhealthy situations. However when anger becomes our first response and results in violence or the loss of family and friends, you need to rebalance your feelings. I will help you understand your own anger and develop tools to manage your triggers and reactions. Learning to talk through your feelings before you explode can be healing and helpful in your relationships. Learning to control your outbursts will bring you closer to family and friends as well as improve your career.

After four decades as a therapist, I find anger management is still not fully understood. Yes you need to manage your anger. But it’s early childhood experience which has hurt you - hardened you to avoid, dismiss or shove inside any anger: both the Constructive as well as Destructive types. That becomes a false shortcut - as feeling inside for which is which in the moment is a key to healthy assertion. Balance is what we need. In the model I use for working with anger, you can learn first to shift what tends to happen in a present unhappy situation. We’ll then help you distinguish how your past started that pattern. You’ll be able to balance yourself, both in anger and conflict resolution.

Anger is a normal and important emotion that provides us with clues about emotions, thoughts, experiences, and behaviours that need to be explored and understood. Anger is a secondary emotion which means that there are often softer more vulnerable emotions that lie beneath the experience and expression of anger. In the context of a safe and non-judgemental counselling relationship, you can begin to explore the roots of your anger, understand how your anger has likely acted to protect you in may situations, and learn new strategies and tools to express all emotions, including anger, in a more effective and helpful way.

A.M. is mainly a misnomer: “anger” is a natural emotion and normal response to real or imagined injury/threats. It can support our making and keeping essential personal boundaries. Such anger is usually short-lived. Anger that results in impulsive harmful abusive acts and lasts, is better described as rage. Rage stems from severe early life traumas: extensive abandonment, need deprivation, violence, sexual abuse, chronic chaos, likely combined with individual vulnerability factors. Some programs and self-help may not successfully address rage.Depending on degree of self-awareness, motivation, capacity for self-regulation and taking responsibility, this problem can be helped by psychotherapy

Those that seek counselling for anger management may benefit from Cognitive Behavioural Therapy in which the client learns what are their triggers and thought patterns that stir up feelings of anger. I help my client change negative thought patterns to positive thought patterns. I also help my client express their emotion through better communication skills. We also explore how to problem solve in order to defuse a stressful situation. Sometimes a client will want to talk about issues that they have been carrying around a long time. Often, the opportunity to share these burdens can help the client feel better and lessen anger outbursts. Clients can learn new strategies for positive change.

For many of us, anger and aggression have been engrained as a defensive mechanism, a way of protecting ourselves from the world. Often, we feel like we need to resort to anger to ensure we aren’t being taken advantage of. In the moment, this anger can intensify and lead us to taking actions that hurt ourselves and those around us, often leading to feelings of regret. If we can understand our anger and seek to connect with it in a different way, we can start to learn how this emotion, in its healthy form, can serve a vital role in building relationships and helping drive success in other areas of our lives. Schedule a free consultation with me to see if we are a good fit.
