Workplace Anger Management
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.

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
