Anger only is the 'top of the volcano'. What I really find important for my clients is to understand the underlying issues and emotions that fuel the volcano. I am approaching anger management from three angles: 1) Anger is a strong physical reaction and I consider it essential for my clients to learn relaxation practices to stay in touch with their calm. 2)Anger is fueled by destructive and often self-destructive thoughts and I believe that it is very helpful for clients to be able to identify and shift these thoughts. 3) Anger is defensive emotion and it is essential for clients to gain access to their deeper emotions in order to self-soothe.

Appropriately expressed anger is a useful human emotion. Unfortunately, if you are struggling with excessive internal rage & accumulated anger, you can be easily triggered & find yourself out of control. This experience is obviously destructive to others, but you are suffering deeply as well. After lashing out toward loved ones, you are left with feelings of self-loathing & frustration at your inability to control your own emotions. These negative feelings can contribute to more accumulated anger - so the cycle continues. No one wants to live this way. You can choose to bravely explore this vicious cycle of anger. Heal yourself - heal your relationships - heal your life. You can do this!

Anger management is all about empowering you with new choices. You learn new ways of thinking so you can respond more calmly to life's disappointment and upsets. You learn new ways of acting so you have options available that keep you from dong things you might later regret. You enjoy the benefit of improved relationships, and knowing that you have transformed old patterns to create a life of greater calm and contentment.
