Anger Management Therapy can be effective.
No one is ‘hardwired’ to be angry. You can learn to be assertive without being aggressive. You can learn how to get what you need and deserve without feeling frustrated and without making other people feel afraid of you. Anger management therapy can be very effective.
Our therapists can help you learn to understand what triggers anger for you, help you find ways to cool down so you do not lose control, and help you talk with people so that problems can get solved rather than get worse. When you meet with one of our anger management therapists they will work with you to develop a plan to meet your needs and goals. We do not do cookie-cutter therapy so your treatment plan will be customized for you. Your training could include some of the following proven techniques: cognitive behaviour therapy, cognitive restructuring, relaxation training, assertiveness training, and mindfulness training.
