Anger is normal emotion that everyone experiences. It becomes a problem when one expresses anger inappropriately or one lacks the proficiency to express any emotions but anger. I use Humanistic and Dialectical Behaviour Therapy (DBT) to help my clients understand their anger, improve their emotional experience, and express their emotions in healthy ways. A healthy emotional life is the cornerstone of living a full and successful life.

I work it down with verbs. Instead of I' m hungry enough to eat a horse, I can pet it, water it, groom it, talk to it, or ride it. Riding it is better for me than overeating because I'm a little mal nourished as it is. Horsemeat might not.be good for. you. It's too tough. So, for the purpose of anger-reduction, riding is better. I suppose the main tenet is to relax when feeling angry, and try real hard not to blame the horse. He doesn't know any better!

Anger is not necessarily bad. It is the instinctual response of being interrupted in the pursuit of a goal. We all need that upsurge of energy to push back when we feel we are pushed or deprived or hurt. But because anger is a very powerful emotional expression it can be hurtful to others or scary or dangerous. Therefore we need to be able to manage our anger in a productive and problem solving way rather than making things worse or even abusive to others. My approach in working with you is to explore your individual situation and offer tools to help you understand your anger and learn to manage it effectively.
