Types of Anger Management Issues

Each year, 1 in 5 Canadians report experiencing mental health struggles. That is an astonishing 7.65 Million Canadians per year! At some point in life, we all need a support system there for us. Therapy can be an outlet for you to safely explore your feelings as well as develop healthy coping skills to navigate your life.

Aggressive Anger

Experience an inner force that seems uncontrollable, affecting you and the people around you? Aggressive anger can make life feel like a continuous battlefield, causing relationship strains, constant stress, and potentially leading to mental health issues. Therapy sessions, including anger management services, offer strategies to transform this fiery energy into a force for positive change. We use effective therapy techniques to help when you feel angry. Imagine reclaiming your peace and fostering healthier relationships - that's the transformative journey we can embark on together.

Passive Anger

Do you often suppress your anger, only to find it seeping out through sarcastic remarks, silent treatment, or procrastination? This manifestation of passive anger can slowly erode your sense of self and quality of life, potentially escalating into mental health issues. Through our empathetic and supportive counselling/therapy sessions, we can unlock healthier ways for you to express your emotions and provide problem-solving techniques to help manage your anger. It's time to stop the silent battle within you and start living a more fulfilling, balanced life.

Assertive Anger

Despite its negative reputation, anger can be harnessed positively. If you find yourself expressing your anger honestly yet respectfully, that's assertive anger. However, balancing this fine line can be challenging, leading to misunderstandings and resentment. Our therapy sessions enhance your assertiveness, ensuring your voice is heard without escalating conflict. We can fine-tune this skill together, enabling you to communicate effectively while preserving harmony in your relationships.

Projective-Aggressive Anger

Do you blame others for your anger or notice your temper flares when you feel judged or criticized? This could be projective-aggressive anger, a reflex that can often lead to regret and guilt. Therapy can provide the space for self-discovery and understanding, helping you take ownership of your emotions. Let's break this cycle and enable you to navigate life's challenges more gracefully and clearly using problem-solving techniques.

Therapy and Counselling For Anger Management

Every individual is unique and the same issue may present differently with different individuals. Therefore, the intervention has to be tailored to your own unique needs. We have experience in numerous evidence based modalities. Whether to use a particular modality or not, can be mutually decided during the sessions. We believe in providing culturally sensitive, person centered, recovery oriented, and trauma informed services.

Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT)

Do you struggle with controlling your anger? Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) may be the solution. This approach focuses on identifying triggers and thought patterns that lead to anger, allowing you to address them proactively. By using CBT, you can develop strategies to modify these patterns and manage your anger. This therapy offers the chance to take control of your emotional responses, leading to a more balanced life.

Psychodynamic Therapy

To better manage your anger and related mental health issues, understanding its origins can be beneficial. Psychodynamic Therapy helps you explore past experiences that may influence your present reactions. Through this understanding, you can gain significant insights that may alter your responses to anger-inducing situations. This approach provides an opportunity to address your anger at its roots, empowering you to navigate your emotions more effectively.

Interpersonal Therapy

Interpersonal Therapy can be a significant help if anger is disrupting your relationships. This therapy focuses on improving your interaction skills and understanding your relationships' impact on your emotions. With this therapy, you'll learn to communicate better, understand different perspectives, and manage conflicts, thereby reducing the stress and anger in your interactions. Let's improve your relationships and emotional health together.
