Ottawa Anger Management Counselling
Is anger management a problem for you? Our therapists use evidence based anger management counselling interventions to help their clients regulate their anger, and they can help you. Everyone experiences intense anger from time to time, but if you have an anger management problem, you may react to anger in inappropriate and destructive ways. You may aggressively lash out at those around you. You may turn your anger and aggression inwards, berating yourself for your own emotions. To understand more about the many forms of anger & how Ottawa anger management counselling can help check out our blog post.
Anger management is needed when anger is used in destructive, as opposed to constructive, ways. Anger is a normal and perfectly natural human emotion. It is often a very healthy reaction to an upsetting situation. However, if you feel that your anger reactions are inappropriate for a given situation, now may be the time to consider professional help. You can contact us to book a session with a professional counsellor of your choice through the tool to the right or by calling us at 613-425-4257. In every case, the problem lies not with the anger itself, but with the management and response to that anger.

I have attended, with great interest, many Relationships Matter Seminars at St Paul University. The topics are beneficial to everyone who want a better understanding of oneself and relationships. I always come out at the end of the evening with better knowledge and good feelings. Many thanks to the speakers — great presentations!
The seminar I attended was very interesting. The host is very good speaker, he knows what he is talking about and definitely has knowledges to share. I like that it is accessible and entertaining: my boyfriend enjoyed it too, and I believed that it’s partially because of the fact it was funny and instructive.
Relationship Matters offer great speakers on a variety of related topics from online dating to being in long term intimate relationships. They are thought provoking and accessible to the lay person and for anyone with a desire to broaden their perspectives on and possibly improve the quality of their relationships. I am really happy to have discovered this series put on by Martin Rovers, an expert in the field.
