I do work with individuals around issues with anger, irritability, and frustration. However, I don't provide "anger management" courses or classes, or structured teaching in this regard. I recognize this can be helpful for some individuals, but prefer to work within the context of psychotherapy to understand and develop personal resources to manage emotional challenges. If you're looking for a structured class or program, I would recommend checking out community resources such as those offered by Catholic Family Services (note - you don't have to be Catholic!)

Anger is a powerful emotion that tells that something needs to change. Anger can be destructive or empowering. Inappropriate expression of anger can disrupt work and relationships. Even though you may have been taught that anger is taboo, bottling up anger is not the answer either. Poorly managed anger can also lead to problems with physical health. Well managed anger can help protect personal boundaries. Often anger masks other underlying feelings that are more painful. Anu helps you to not only manage anger and act assertively, but discover what information anger gives you about what you need or what your anger may be hiding.

Anger is a completely normal, usually healthy, human emotion. But when it gets out of control and turns destructive, it can lead to problems—problems at work, in interpersonal relationships, and a reduction in the overall quality of your life. And it can make you feel as though you're at the mercy of an unpredictable and powerful emotion. Chances are that if you currently have a problem with anger, you likely already know it. If you find yourself acting in ways that seem out of control and frightening, you need help finding better ways to deal with this emotion. The primary goal of anger management is to help you understand and control this powerful emotion. Simple relaxation tools, such as d....

Anger is a positive emotion! Learning to use anger positively can result in less stress, greater happiness and a stronger sense of pride in one’s own responses. Anger motivates and empowers people to act in pursuit of justice, resolution and healing. It is first of all a compliment for those having the motive of caring about what is right. The secret of getting your anger to work for you is to unhook it from the second motive of guaranteeing that future injustices will not happen. Pursuing that guarantee just burns people out! At McNaughton and Associates Counselling, we will help you get the most out of your anger in a healthy manner, and escape damaging consequences.

Anger is a two-edged sword. In one direction it can work for your good, telling you when things do not seem fair or right to you, and then giving you the motivation to do something about it. But in the opposite direction, anger can literally destroy you and those around you. Because this discrimination is not easily achieved, some people end up trying to avoid anger altogether, others express it passively, while yet others turn it outward in explosive, deliberate, or chronic anger. Counselling can help you learn how to express your frustrations in healthy ways and let go of your destructive anger. You can make the needed changes in your life.

I approach the problem of anger differently from most therapists. Instead of struggling to fight against and manage anger, I encourage people to examine why anger is there and how it protects him or her so he or she can choose to do something different through the tools and strategies developed in sessions. Anger, like all strong emotions, is telling us something. If we can understand it, then it will lose its power over us. This frees us up to make different decisions about how we react with those around us that can be more aligned with who we want to be with those closest to us. This values-driven approach guides behaviour change long-term.

The goal of anger management is to reduce the feelings and arousal that anger creates. Cognitive Behavioural Therapy can help people to manage their anger, other forms of counselling may help to explore the underlying issues. Knowing how to recognise and express anger in the correct way can help individuals reach their goals, solve problems and handle emergencies – and have their needs met.

Anger is one of our oldest and most primitive emotions. It’s a primal instinct that is hard-wired in our brains. I work with my clients to help them understand the neurological process of anger, as a means to learn how to control their reactions to real emotional triggers. When people feel angry, the threat centers in the brain have been triggered and an alarm has gone off in the amygdala preparing the body for fight or flight reactions, our natural survival instincts. Learning how to self regulate emotions, and understanding what occurs neurologically, helps gain personal control and the ability to self-soothe.

Anger management is primarily about recognizing and learning about ourselves and how we deal with our world. Learning the many, many ways how anger impacts the important people in our lives in negative ways, and realizing how serious the consequences can be; can help to motivate us to develop strategies and better ways of dealing with our frustration and inner pain -- ways that won't alienate the people we love.

Anger is a normal human emotion that can assist us in protecting ourselves and creating boundaries with others. When misused, however, it can also be dstructive and alienating. Anger management will assist you to identify anger triggers and to develop strategies for calming yourself and expressing frustration without damaging yourself or others in the process. The aim of therapy together is to regain control over one's anger in order to choose when, how, and with whom to be appropriately angry.
