Anger Management Toronto
Anger is a normal response to situations that we perceive as unjust, unfair, or otherwise do not meet our expectations. Seeking professional counselling for anger management in Toronto can help you tame strong emotions in a healthy way.
In the daily experience of living as a human being, these kinds of situations are quite common. Whether we face difficulties in our work lives, challenges at home, or struggle in our everyday lives, anger can show up. Anger can also be a response to situations that have happened in the past that have not been emotionally resolved.
Anger tells us that something is wrong and that change is needed - in this sense it is an adaptive emotion. Yet, in expressing our desire for change or dissatisfaction with current circumstance, adaptive anger can easily turn into problem anger. Problem anger can be recognized when we notice ourselves feeling increasingly irritable and on edge or reacting angrily to others on an ongoing basis.
Signs of problem anger:
Unexpected or uncontrolled outbursts
Urge to get revenge
Recurrent and persistent angry thought patterns
Increased dissatisfaction and frustration in everyday life
Inability to let go of past events
Increased conflict with the people surrounding you
Consistent feelings of anger
Viewing everything as hostile/unfair
Remember that anger can also be bottled up
Anger is not only a problem when it is expressed outwardly. Internalizing anger and keeping it inside ourselves can be a source of harm and unease as well. Whether you are experiencing difficulties with anger expression towards colleagues, friends, or family, or are struggling with feelings of anger, our therapists can help you move forward.
Anger Management Therapy Treatment in Toronto: Gain Control of Your Anger
Anger is a difficult emotion that many people find hard to deal with or express. It can be explosive, and many times, it may feel out of control. As much as you do not want to get angry, you may feel powerless to stop it. If you do not know how to regulate or express your anger in a healthy way, loss of control, negative thoughts and beliefs, and mistrust can engulf your mental and emotional well-being.
Our anger therapy in Toronto can help you cope with and curb frustrations and other negative feelings that can trigger anger. We use various techniques that will help you understand your anger better and enable you to regulate and express your feelings in a healthier way.
Our therapists are well-trained and experienced in identifying the source of your anger and how it is negatively affecting your life. By determining the trigger points for your anger and/or the underlying emotions or situations that precede your anger we will provide you with healthy and safe alternatives to express your emotions.
