Anger Mangement Program

Anger Management Counselling is a service where clients are offered strategies and techniques to manage excessive anger and make better life choices. We also offer a compressed version of the Anger Management Program, the details for which can be found on the home page under "Anger Workshop". Most of this counselling service is done on a one-on-one basis.  

Overall, it can make a person's  life happier because much unhappiness and difficulties in relationships are caused by an inability to manage excessive anger. Anger management means to direct the energy of anger into productive and prosocial activities; it is not the same as anger control; See FAQ section

  The Report of Completion is only issued once fees are paid in full.  

Program Overview

The Anger Management Program consists of eight to ten (8-10) individual counselling sessions designed to help clients recognize the roots of their anger, develop awareness of the negative effects of excessive anger and learn anger mastery. During these sessions the client will explore  what are some main triggers of excessive anger, and how excessive anger can be very damaging to his/her relationships and other topics related to managing one’s anger effectively. Each session is approximately 45 minutes to about 1 hour in length and the duration of the program is usually between 1 to 2 months. Some sessions may also be completed over the telephone (telephone counselling), and using the internet (e-mail correspondence). The program can also be completed within a shorter period of time. It meets the requirements of the Ontario Court System.

Although this program is called Anger Management, the approach taken is more general covering life skills management.
