The use of cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) is something that many anger management therapies incorporate. By trying to get a patient to open up about their emotions and feelings and being driven to accomplish a specific task (in this case controlling anger), a person can see positive results in their behaviour. By slowing down our thoughts, we can catch ourselves when anger presents itself and choose an alternate course of action, more in line with our goals.

A response to life's events falls upon a continuum from neutral to highly-reactive. At times anger, Gandhi called it "Righteous Indignation," is necessary to respond to injustices or inappropriate behaviours. However, uncontrolled, inappropriate anger is destructive to one's self and others. Mindfulness and Metta (Loving Kindness) meditations are excellent tools to deal with anger. Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT) also called Tapping, along with skillful use of affirmations can help to cool the fires of anger. The benefits of anger management lead to a regulating of emotions and thus a gaining of peace of mind, positive relationships, career and family security.

People who deal with needing to manage their anger are often dealing with the effects of past trauma and a lack of validaiton in their environment. I use Dialectical Behaviour Therapy. Dialectical means "the existence of opposites." In DBT, people are taught two seemingly opposite strategies: acceptance (i.e., that their experiences and behaviours are valid), and change (i.e., that they have to make positive changes to manage emotions and move forward). DBT teaches mindfulness, emotion regulation, interpersonal effectiveness and radical acceptance; I offer DBT as either a stand-alone treatment, or as a support to people participating in DBT skills groups.

Emotions can run deep and overwhelm our system. Anger, in particular, is one what tends to come fast and flood our system. Anger is often learned in our early life and we hold onto the lessons of this. The good news is that we can unburden ourselves from the hurt anger is often holding which can free you from this cycle. If anger is impacting your life, we can help. Contact us and we can work with you to start this change.

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 has a lot to do with repressed fear. If we don't allow fear to be released we tend to take our anger out on the people closest to us. Certain situations will trigger us if we don't know how to control our anger if we aren't dealing with underlying issues. Often if we are not consciously working on dealing with managing our anger it doesn't just go away by itself. Simply having someone to talk to and listen to us helps alleviate a lot of our understanding about why we are angry. Cognitive Behavioural Therapy is a very beneficial modality to consciously put anger in check. Having a safe environment to share your thoughts and let go of your feelings is another way to release anger.

Anger is a common emotion that can come easy to us and can feel quite powerful. Our anger can often help us identify when something doesn’t sit right with us, when we feel like our needs are not being met, or like situations pose some level of injustice towards us. However, it is what we do with this anger that can make all the difference in how we cope, experience, and navigate situations. As a therapist, I will never tell you how to express your anger, but rather I will empower you to manage it in a way that fits best for you and your life. Connect with me today for a free consultation to see if we are a good fit.

Nobody wants to be angry and upset themselves or others. Anger is sometimes about current issues that need to be resolved through a good action plan. Other times it is due to deeper issues that need to be worked through. Anger is often a symptom of previous upsets or issues in our lives that caused us pain in some way. We will process those upsets through discussion and unique exercises created for you as homework or to be completed in session until they are worked through.

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 deicide 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. Sometimes anger is masked and takes other forms ex. control or rigid expectations of others. We can help you express yourself differently.

I have spent hundreds of hours working with clients who struggle with managing anger/rage. There are specific, step-by-step techniques that can be taught, that are very effective at helping people deal with this issue. Based on reports from clients I have worked with, I have found that if clients are committed to their process, most people make significant improvement within 6-12 sessions. Drawing from polyvagal theory, AEDP and mindfulness techniques, clients can learn healthy ways to manage and experience their anger.

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.

It can be difficult to control our emotions, especially in these challenging times. Anger can also be an expression of other emotions that are lying beneath the surface. Psychotherapy can help identify tools that work for you in learning to regulate your emotions, as well as approaching your anger with preventative strategies such as learning to recognize when you begin to feel angry, and regular activities that can help alleviate stress and build up your stress tolerance. You are not defined by your anger, and your anger doesn't control you. By learning to identify your triggers and the purpose your anger serves for you, therapy can help you make a shift bring more peace into your life.

Anger is a normal and healthy emotion, neither good nor bad, when it’s present. Like any emotion, it conveys a message, telling you that a situation is upsetting, unjust, or threatening. However when anger is built up and disproportionate to a situation it is called rage. That means old anger that is unresolved along with a new trigger. Sometimes you may feel like it’s out of your hands and there’s little you can do to tame the beast. But you have more control over your anger than you think. With insight about the real reasons for your anger and these anger management tools, you can learn to express your emotions without hurting others and keep your temper from hijacking your life.

There are 3 phases in working with Anger 1.Prevention- Attempts to forestall the very onset of anger. 2. Intervention- Aims to reduce the intensity or the duration of anger that has already ignited. 3. Postvention- Aims to discharge any residual anger. Emotions are regulated by re-experiencing, releasing, or converting them into a safe form. We will not only focus on your cognitions and behaviors as entry points but also focus on the modification of affect (your emotions). Anger is an emotion. To have no room in therapy for the feeling component of this emotion is to deny its very essence, your existence. Gestalt perspective- Expression of anger can be very productive. Let out!

Registered Psychotherapist and Clinical Counselor

As a counselor, my approach to anger management is to help clients understand the root cause of their anger and develop healthy coping strategies to manage it. I work collaboratively with clients to identify their triggers, recognize patterns of behavior, and learn new ways to express and regulate their emotions. Through counseling for anger management, clients can learn to communicate more effectively, manage stress, and develop problem-solving skills to prevent anger from escalating. My goal is to help clients achieve a greater sense of self-awareness, improve their relationships, and lead a more fulfilling life

Anger can be a strong emotion. When used in an unproductive way, anger can harm us (i.e. self-criticism, self-injury), and harm our relationships (i.e. blaming, criticism, aggression, inflexibility). However, when this feeling is used in a healthy way, it can give us some important information about boundaries, needs & expectations. It can also help to motivate us to make necessary changes. In therapy, we can work together to get a handle on anger and harness that energy in healthy, helpful ways. If you're wanting to find ways to manage your anger, book a consultation or session with one of our clinicians to get started now! www.kaleidoscopecounsellingco.com

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.

Within our intimate relationships, anger management may feel like it is just the other persons issue. Perhaps you both agree they need individual therapy to move forward. I might also guess that this problem of anger gets played out in your own relationship. You both initiate, react to, and defend when anger comes between you. When anger takes over, there are also really important emotions are under the surface. In Emotionally Focused Couples Therapy, we focus on how you are both able to find each other again in all this anger. If experience serves me right, those other emotions that are under the anger will come into the counselling room also to be worked with together, in a safe way.
