Counselling for Anger Management in Toronto

Many people have difficulty in finding appropriate ways to express their anger. If you have difficulty in communicating your feelings effectively, our therapist, Betty Stockley, can help you with anger management counselling in Toronto and surrounding areas. She has over 35 years of experience with multiple types of therapy and counselling areas. She understands that we have all learned certain patterns of behaviour and ways of relating to others from our childhood and other life experiences. To overcome such patterns with your anger, it is a good idea to consider anger management counselling with Betty.

What Is Anger Management?

Anger management is a counselling program to help those who struggle to cope with this emotion. Anger management counselling therapy recognizes that anger is a normal emotion and doesn't keep you from feeling it. It helps you identify the signs of your anger and provide you with the strategies to deal with it productively. In this manner, we help you manage your anger to mitigate the negative consequences it might have had in your life.

What Is the Goal of Anger Management Counselling?

The goal of anger management counselling in Toronto is to reduce both your emotional feelings and the physiological arousal that anger can cause. While you cannot remove or get rid of the events, people, or places that enrage you, you can learn to control your actions towards those things. In Betty’s anger management counselling, many topics are included, such as:

  • Developing assertiveness

  • Creating healthy boundaries

  • Developing self-relaxation techniques

  • Exploration of feelings beneath the anger

  • Learning how anger affects children

  • Acknowledging the consequences of your anger

  • Developing new techniques for resolution of anger

  • Developing new communication techniques to enhance primary and other relationships

Do I Need Anger Management Counselling?

For many, it might be difficult to even identify symptoms associated with anger. People with extreme anger issues experience both physical and emotional symptoms.

What Does Anger Management Do?

Rather than letting your anger control your life, anger management counselling can help you control how you react to irritating events, people, and places. Betty helps patients create better relationships with those around them at home, work, and in social environments through:

  • Exploring the origins of anger: Many things in your environment might cause you to feel angry, such as stressors in your family life and work. Additionally, people often use anger to protect themselves from other negative emotions. Betty provides a comfortable environment, where she helps you get a deep understanding of the reasons behind your anger.
  • Identifying the triggers: Anger is a complex emotion that can vary in degrees. There are many minor and major triggers in your home, work and school that can bring out your deep-seated anger and cause you to flare up. Identifying these triggers helps you learn how to cope when you confront them in real life.
  • Managing anger in a healthy manner: Regardless of the trigger, feeling angry activates your 'fight or flight' response, encouraging you to act out. Betty will work with you to develop positive thought patterns when confronted with anger so that you can deal with it productively.
