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.

Anger is profoundly powerful. It can protect, advocate, change, make itself heard, seen, felt. It is this power that makes it an easy tool, something that we are often taught - usually through difficult circumstances - to use. While there is a time and place for anger, it often overwhelms those boundaries and overshadows other useful tools as well - such as compassion, empathy, peacefulness, and patience. As your therapist, we work together to strengthen those other useful and powerful tools, while also working to look at the roots of anger and frustration and give them the attention and care that they need, so that they can be used in appropriate and mindful ways.

Anger management is a therapeutic approach to help a person learn tools for managing anger, for keeping it under control. My approach is to, along with this, also address what you are is angry about and work to understand and get at the source of the anger. That is, I see anger to a symptom more than the problem itself and therapy helps by you not only to manage your anger by using anger management tools, but more importantly to deal with what you are actually about in the first place and resolve and heal this.
