Repressed anger or explosive anger can alienate you from your friends, family and colleagues. Outbursts can provoke feelings of shame. Buried anger often leaves you feeling resentful and tense. Everyone experiences anger; with the proper tools to manage and express your anger, it can be a healthy and energizing force in your life rather than destructive and alienating. I offer supportive counselling to address the roots of anger, and provide practical skills to manage and express it so that you feel reconnected to yourself and others.

Anger is a natural part of life and a very important and healthy emotion when expressed appropriately. Anger is not only an emotion, but also a physical reaction in the body. Our blood pressures and heart rate rise as does the level of adrenaline in our body. Unfortunately, when expressed inappropriately, anger can impair our judgment and thinking, causing us to act irrationally or violently towards others. Anger management is a process of learning to recognize the signs that you are becoming angry and to take positive action to deal with the emotions brought on by a situation. Anger management therapy focuses on providing methods and tools for managing and expressing it appropriately.

Anger is a vital, reflexive emotional response that invites self-awareness, understanding, and thoughtful self-management. Anger is a completely normal, usually healthy, human emotion. But when it gets out of control and turns destructive, it can lead to problems. Anger can be suppressed, and then converted or redirected. This happens when you hold in your anger, stop thinking about it, and focus on something positive.

Anger is a vital part of our defense system that also is both frightening and empowering. We ignore our anger at the cost of our health, relationships and well-being. In working with anger, we will explore the individual reasons you have for being angry, and how this affects your everyday life. We will learn everything about your anger, including how you experience it, and work to allow anger to be a part of your life without it ruining it.

Registered Psychologist

MJB Psychological Services Ltd., 10042 - 116 Street, Edmonton, AB T5K 1V6

Ernie had frequent angry outbursts causing panic attacks. He struggled with all his relationships and it was greatly affecting his work. Our discussions revealed a tremendous longing for approval, stemming from a stormy relationship with his father. All Ernie could recall was his father saying, “Big boys don't cry so suck it up!" He learned to keep things locked up until erupting like a volcano. He learned body listening which is a way to track sensations and allow sad or hurt feelings to speak, move or tell their story. He talked about his concerns and became aware of patterns and their effect on his body. With mind-body dialogue, Ernie experienced information in a new, connected way.

Anger is a natural human response. It reflects authentic experience, and as such, is a valid indicator of how we feel in the moment. However, anger can be expressed in damaging ways that influence how we're seen by others, and how we see ourselves. Angry responses are often a reflection of deeper feelings we may have, but are unaware of. Talking about anger can help us better understand the ways we are vulnerable to it, how we might stand against it if it's destructive, what it is trying to tell us, and the underlying feelings that might be contributing to it.

I believe that anger is an emotion like any other emotion, joy, sadness, etc. Anger should not be managed; it should be felt and experience. If we give ourselves permission to be angry and to feel the underlying emotions that causes the anger, we are less likely to move into reactive states of anger. My approach to anger would be to "feel it" and be angry so that it does not have to be a scary emotion that has to be managed.

Many of us have not been taught the tools and strategies that are needed to manage anger in a healthy and appropriate manner. While anger is a natural emotion, which can serve as a helpful signal that something is "just not right," it is often handled in a poor manner. I help people to see the maladaptive patterns and strategies they have been using to express their anger, and then replace these with healthier ones. We also work to unload built up frustration, resentment, and hurt, which often reaches a "breaking point" and needs to be resolved so that it does not come out as uncontrolled anger. By doing this, clients can reach a more peaceful place, and will come to see anger in a new way.
