Therapy for Anger

A compassionate, expert approach to healing from the pain related to anger

Embrace your true self beyond anger

Anger is a human emotion that is completely normal. 

It can range from irritation at a traffic jam to anger at your spouse for forgetting your birthday. It might be caused by worrying about personal problems, or traumatic events may trigger anger.

It’s often accompanied by physiological and biological changes—in the same way as many other emotions. You might feel your heart rate and blood pressure go up when you feel anger. Although anger is a normal human emotion, it can get out of control and be destructive. 

Therapy for anger can help.

Unraveling Anger

Anger can lead to conflicts in your relationships, problems at work, or even legal issues. Sometimes it can be turned inward. Whether it is turned inward or outward, it can negatively impact your quality of life. You might even feel that it’s unpredictable and dangerous.

Reach out for support. Therapy offers a safe and supportive environment to understand the root causes of anger and to start developing healthy coping strategies. You can regain control of your temper and life.

People process angry feelings in different ways, typically expressing, suppressing, or calming. While expressing your angry feelings is healthy, it needs to be assertive and not aggressive. It helps to be able to clearly express your needs and how to get them met, without hurting others or yourself. 

Anger is a normal human emotion that can be managed, allowing you to reclaim your life.

How Anger Therapy Works

Leaf icon

Focus on healing

Anger should not be suppressed, but if it’s recognized, it can be redirected in a healthy way. We can help you settle yourself, control your outward behavior, and manage your internal responses.

We will work with you to determine a therapy approach that works best for your circumstances. One example is Mindfulness-Based Therapy, a therapeutic approach that integrates mindfulness and Cognitive Behavioural Therapy. This approach aims to help individuals cultivate awareness and acceptance of their thoughts, emotions, and experiences.

We offer therapy options including individual therapy, couples therapy, family therapy and group therapy. We have therapy for men, women and LGBTQIA2S+, as well as therapy for children, teens and young adults. We also provide support for Veterans and First Responders.

With over 40 years of private practice experience,our approach at Better Life Counselling & Therapy centers around the belief that you are already whole. It is our job to provide the support and guidance you need to bring forth the best version of yourself.

We help you connect with the right therapist for your needs in a safe and welcoming environment. Our experienced team provides the support, tools and evidenced-based treatments to build a life that feels better.

We provide in-person therapy in Victoria and Coquitlam, and virtual therapy across British Columbia. Our convenient appointments include options for evening and weekend sessions and no wait list.
