Richard Merrill Haney, M.Ed., Ph.D. (Counselling Therapy)

Couple Counselling/Coaching and Family Mediation Specialist

301 Bank St. (at Somerset St.) In Centretown, Ottawa, ON K2P 1X7

I have vast experience and wisdom with regard to the understanding of and in the treating of all aspects of anger, rage and fury. One of the real benefits of a client learning about and facing their anger is that they learn that anger itself is not the culprit. It is a natural and functional emotion. The real problem is what they do with their anger...how they articulate their anger. Many clients come into my practice believing that anger itself is bad. I enable clients to distinguish between "anger at" and "anger with" and "anger about". Clients become aware that anger is about something going on in their own self and not so much about projecting it onto another person.

Anger is part of the human experience. Its purpose is to protect and to defend. However, sometimes the way in which we express our anger (or avoid expressing our anger) can lead to difficulty or pain. How we express our anger can have a profound impact on our social relationships and how we feel about ourselves. There are many ways in which anger manifests itself in a person's life. I begin my work with clients by assessing the nature and origins of their anger. I then utilize emotionally and somatically oriented techniques to support clients to shift to more adaptive means of anger expression.

Conny Barry, RP, M.Ed. (Counselling), CCC

Can. Cert. Counsellor and Registered Psychotherapist

Ottawa South, Alta Vista, Ottawa, ON K1H 5T7

I help clients unlock the negative cycle that anger and its accompanying behaviors may cause. In an empathic and supportive environment I help the client understand where the underlying feelings and thoughts originate and loosen the stranglehold that this cycle previously held. Together with cognitive and behavioral strategies we develop new and healthy coping methods to manage these emotions more productively.

Ros Macdonald, BA, MSW, RSW

Registered Clinical Counsellor

Unit 125 - 2111 Montreal Rd., Ottawa, ON K1J 8M8

My intention is to support you. Anger is a mask, covering over our more vulnerable feelings of fear, sadness, or hurt underneath. Anger can also come out as an overreaction to a present situation, fueled by past hurts.. I can offer you relaxation exercises and handouts to help you heal & learn to let go. An important 1st step is to develop awareness of what your triggers are. Feelings of anger can also be positive, signalling to us that something in our lives needs to be changed . How do you want to deal with your anger so it is safe for others to be around you? How can you use your thinking as well as your heart to decide how you wish to respond to situations that trigger you?

Feelings of anger can sometimes disrupt a variety of aspects of our lives, including our relationships with others, our ability to cope with daily stressors, and our overall sense of control over our emotions. Counselling support can provide a safe and non-judgemental space for clients to explore these difficult and sometimes overwhelming feelings of anger, while learning more useful strategies to utilize when feelings of anger begin to present themselves.

Reg. Marriage and Family Therapist, Can. Cert. Counsellor, Registered Psychotherapist

Within Driving Distance of Ottawa, ON

Anger is just one of a wide range of emotions that we experience. It is often a way of coping with feelings of helplessness, vulnerability, or disappointment. It can be a signal that that your needs are not being met, and an opportunity to make positive changes. Anger that is not controlled, however, brings pain to everyone. I help clients to understand where their anger comes from and teach them Cognitive Behavioural strategies for managing it.

Liesel Aranyosi, Registered Professional Counsellor

Registered Psychotherapist

Lifesource Medical Centre, 2130 Robertson Rd., Ottawa, ON K2H 5Z1

My approach to Anger Management is, most definitely, Cognitive Behavioral. Aside from sharing with the clients the various strategies that can be used for anger management, I teach the clients how to get rid of the underlying causes of anger, to begin with. Discussing the different mental mistakes that most of us make and teaching how to correct those mental mistakes empower people in realizing that we do have control over how we may want to feel.

Marriage & Family & Individual Psychotherapist

611 - 267 O'Connor Street, Ottawa, ON K2P 1V3

Anger is a friend in that it provides us with valuable information about ourselves and our surroundings. It can be understood as our emotional reaction to believing that either we or another have somehow been mistreated. it is most problematic in its expression rather than it its experience. Problematic expressions of anger present in varied forms, from passive forms to expressions of rage. We can learn to promote understanding of the meaning of our anger and the secondary emotions it triggers as well as how to develop alternative coping strategies.

Anger is a secondary emotion; it is always about a deeper emotion. Anger exists to tell us that something needs our attention. What we do with our anger is either helpful or unhelpful, life affirming or destructive. How we express anger is influenced by the experiences and messages we received as children. How we express anger is influenced by the messages we continue to embrace and believe about ourselves and the world around us. Psychotherapy and counselling can be very helpful in understanding the roots of unhelpful expressions of anger, and learning how to best advocate for one's needs in ways that are respectful and appropriate.
