It is by helping the client see the responsibility they must personally assume in tackling their own anger. Gaining greater awareness of what might be the costs whether it is physiological or relational is highly significant. Learning to defuse the anger and aggression and allow for a cooling down phase. Examining carefully those triggering thoughts of ours while learning new ways of challenging them. carefully those triggering thoughts of ours while learning new methods for challenging them.

It can be frustrating to find our relationship being limited by angry reactions. Rage leaves us feeling out of control, and perhaps dealing with unfortunate consequences of actions caused by anger. There is help in finding how you would prefer to act, and to help create relationships at work or home that are mutually supportive. I respectfully help families and individuals to navigate regaining lives from the influence of anger, in ways that support each unique situation and perspectives. Together we explore triggers and supports for anger, even possibly unrecognized losses or values you are protecting, and consider how to make changes towards living as you would prefer. Serving Ottawa.

Anger and emotions management has long been an area of interest and specialization for me. Dating back to my undergrad I have studied anger as learned behavior, biological predisposition, and unfortunately as an outcome of childhood trauma. Men are taught that if they feel and express genuine emotions that they are whimps, among other pejorative terms. Anger and emotions management iwith me is a gentle supportive experience that coaches clients to experience and express healthy emotions. We will unpack and reframe past toxic behaviors, and experiences and learn healthy assertiveness. It is NOT judgement or contemptuous. Rather it is a supportive personal growth and change proces

Clients presenting with anger issues have a personal history, family-of-origin history in which anger has been distorted and thus de-legitimated in some way. To be effective, any clinical approach to this emotion must include identifying and deconstructing the foundational components buried and sanitized in the client’s subconscious mind, yet continue, repeatedly to constrain their growth. Effective unravelling of personal history benefits the client in terms of understanding, self-awareness, and self-forgiveness.

Counsellors at Elim, in addition to knowing anger management techniques, are trained in getting to the root of anger. Clients not only learn how to control anger but also come to understand what is the emotional wound behind the tendency to be angry. Our approach not only controls the anger but help clients heal from the psychological pain that might be driving the anger. Many of our clients report that once they have dealt with painful issues of the past, they become much more at peace with themselves and with others.

Anger is an emotion that is expressed when something/someone needs to be protected. It gets us in gear. When it feels that anger is out of control, it is useful to understand it's function and guide it to be productive rather than destructive. Those who are the angriest have been treated unfairly by their family or society, and they don't know how to make things right. I will provide tools to help you cope with the events in your life that have created such anger, and help you express your emotions and communicate in a way where you will be more likely to be listened to.

Anger is normal emotion that everyone experiences. It becomes a problem when one expresses anger inappropriately or one lacks the proficiency to express any emotions but anger. I use Humanistic and Dialectical Behaviour Therapy (DBT) to help my clients understand their anger, improve their emotional experience, and express their emotions in healthy ways. A healthy emotional life is the cornerstone of living a full and successful life.

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 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.

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.

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?

When a person has problems managing anger there are several areas I address. First is to stabilize them - if they are burned out, exhausted, living in a situation that constantly arouses anger, we need to address that first. Next, if a reaction is disproportionate to an event, we know there is more going on. The most efficient way I find to identify this is to use a questionnaire to identify "schemas" which are underlying belief systems which are probably being triggered if the person lashes out or withdraws in anger. This helps guide our naming of what is being triggered, connecting with other emotions than anger, and in general regaining control over our behaviour in a way that works.
