Anger tells us that something is wrong, or that we're being mistreated, for example. Anger gives us needed information, so we will not let others abuse us. But when anger turns to rage, it becomes destructive! Anger is an emotion, a feeling only. Rage is a behavior that includes yelling, name-calling, throwing things, punching holes in walls, driving recklessly. Rage is dangerous to us & others. We're born with anger, just as we're born with other emotions. We are not born with rage. Rage happens when anger and resentment build up over a period of time. You don't have to keep living with rage. If you're ready to take an honest look at things and do some work, I can help.

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.

Anger is a natural response to hurt and fear but it can cause more pain in our lives if we use it to hurt others, physically or emotionally. Anger that is destructive, usually comes from an old hurt that we are carrying within us. This hurt has been painfully touched by circumstances or by the actions of someone else. First we need to learn ways to stop our hurtful actions by taking a break or walking away. Then, however, we need to turn our attention to the underlying hurt and to bring compassion and care to our own hurt self. You will find that at the same time, you become more compassionate toward other people.
