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!

I use cognitive behavioral approaches to help patients learn to manage anger. Cognitive approaches means learning to view anger arousing situations in more constructive ways and a behavioral approach means learning new behaviours and new ways of reacting to situations in a more flexible manner. I also help patients fully express and understand the reasons why they reacted angrily in the first place.

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.
