Put Anger in its Place

Get Angry for the Right Reasons

Anger can let someone know that you’re not happy about something and that you want to find a way to make things better. However, it can get out of control and be misconstrued. A professional can teach you to express your anger positively.

Anger Management

Anger was once a necessary part of life. It fueled our ancestors’ primal “fight” instinct to protect themselves and their tribe in the face of danger by instilling fear in others. In contemporary society, anger is still beneficial when getting mad shows strength in the face of adversity.

It’s okay to be angry, but it’s imperative to understand what to do with rage before it goes too far and harms those around us. How we choose to manage our anger can be a defining moment in our lives. If we believe that expressing anger by being aggressive, shouting, throwing and hitting is acceptable, we’ll face an upwards battle. But what if we could manage that fury and rage in a productive way?

What if we discovered the source of our anger wasn’t other things or other people, but something deep inside of us that could be fixed? We can help you adjust your expectations, accept that we live in an imperfect world, and learn to be disappointed gracefully.

Male Anger Symptoms

Men exhibit anger in different ways. Some men use it to scare others and control them, while others suppress it and let it simmer into an unexpected outburst. Whatever the case, unproductive anger can lead to losing friends, family, work, and more. Learning to recognize the symptoms of anger can help you prepare to channel those emotions and help you get what you really want.

Treating Anger

Anger is common, and with the right treatment, most men can learn to use it productively. To help you manage your anger, we’ll first investigate its root cause. Sometimes it’s a learned behaviour, other times it serves to hide other emotions that you’re not ready to acknowledge or explore, like fear, envy or sadness. We’ll then use counselling and coaching to work together, look at your attitudes and behaviours to explain what’s holding you back and how to think differently. Finally, we teach you the tools you need to treat yourself, making way for you to live a better life.
