Anger isn't a primary emotion--It's an animal with its leg caught in a trap. It's a reaction to feeling threatened. I don't want to manage people's anger--I want to reduce their anger by minimizing that experience of feeling threatened. In my many years of counseling, I've found that almost all of our feelings of threat arise from the time of our life when we were most vulnerable--that is, our childhood. If you come to me for assistance in dealing with the anger that is hurting you & hurting the people around you, then I will want to dive into your memories as a little one, healing those wounds, clarifying those distorted thoughts, enhancing your sense of your current strength & competency.

At Home or Private Discreet Intensives

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.
