Have you been told how to deal with your anger with little or no help? Do you find most anger management strategies relatively easy to understand but quite difficult to put into practice? If so, you are not alone. There is a reason for this and it is not because you are not trying hard enough. Anger is a very important and powerful emotion that must be addressed in a deeply emotional way and not just through our heads, knowledge or understanding. This requires the expertise of a therapist who is comfortable and skilled in working with anger.

Anger is energy. The question is whether it is being appropriately focused, whether it is based on realistic expectations, and whether it is running the show versus being an indicator of other issues. I will help you explore the thoughts, feelings, and beliefs underneath your anger and develop tools and plans to better address the hopes, dreams, and injustices that matter most to you.

How do you know if your anger is serious enough to need help? A quick answer is if you find that anger is your go-to, knee-jerk reaction to everyday irritants and disappointments, or if your anger is compromising your quality of life, it may be time to talk to someone. My way of working with angry clients is to both search for the causes of the anger as well as figure out concrete, common-sense ways for anger to be managed on a daily basis. Anger itself is not the problem; often it's the management (or mismanagement) of it that brings on a host of other problems. Maybe you have a right to be angry! But wouldn't it be better to be able to express that anger in a way others can really hear it?

Anger is a natural response to hurt and fear but it can cause more pain in our lives if we use it to hurt others, physically or emotionally. Anger that is destructive, usually comes from an old hurt that we are carrying within us. This hurt has been painfully touched by circumstances or by the actions of someone else. First we need to learn ways to stop our hurtful actions by taking a break or walking away. Then, however, we need to turn our attention to the underlying hurt and to bring compassion and care to our own hurt self. You will find that at the same time, you become more compassionate toward other people.

Anyone who has anger issues is a nice person because he/she always puts other people’s needs first. Hence, it’s such a shame to let other people to think you are a bad person! Now it’s about the time to clear your name! When you attend anger management, you will be able to deescalate the intensity of strong emotions, express your anger appropriately instead of being aggressive, and blow off your steam safely without hurting anyone.

I really don't like the words "anger management" as I think angry feelings have a lot to say to us. We need to acknowledge our anger but that doesn't mean we need to express it in an explosive way. Denying our anger is not healthy and leads to anxiety, depression, and even explosions of anger. Anger is like a wall and behind it are other feelings, often of sadness and hurt. And anger leads to walls which keep us isolated from others.
