Kingston, Ontario Psychotherapy & Counselling for Adults with Anger
Oops! Did you do it again?
So, you've always been fiery and passionate, and perhaps more quick to fly off the handle than others around you. When you were younger you felt like this was a phase, you understood it to be related to tough times you were going through, and you had some damn good reasons to be so pissed off.
Except, the phase didn't really end.
Sure, it had dips and valleys, and times when things seemed reasonably cooler, but then episodes of losing your cool happened more often than you were really happy with. If you're being honest with yourself, you recognize that over time, one instance after another, flipping your lid was something that was harder and harder to control. Sometimes you even surprised yourself - one of those last episodes? Whoo boy! That was a doozie that even YOU didn't quite see coming.
You're finding that your episodes of seeing red are getting to be so frequent, you're worried about whether or not you are going to be able to hold on to the people and relationships that matter to you. You've likely heard people say they don't like this angry side of you, they need you to get more in control - this has to stop.
Except, how do you stop something that just sort of jumps forward and takes over? It's getting problematic enough that you'd stop it if you just knew how, right? People who are not like this don't get it. You don't want to be an angry jerk - you want to connect to important people in your life much more comfortably. You just can't seem to make it happen despite your best efforts.
You're ready for this phase to be over. Permanently. Before something, like your family, or your criminal record, gets so seriously screwed up by your episodes that you won't be able to fix it.
Ok. We "get" it. Honest.
There's a lot happening inside of you.
Let's get started.
Our staff of psychologists, social workers, and registered psychotherapists provide support to tackle your shittiest moods through our weekly talk therapy sessions. If you want to get to the root of this and excavate this anger problem, we want to work with you. Once your intake process is completed, we recommend that you commit to at least 6 – 8 sessions to ensure you can 'dig in' and make the progress you need for lasting change. Whaddya say?

Which of your staff are anger experts?
What should I expect in therapy for my anger?
• You book a free consultation or a full-length first appointment with us by sending us a message or phoning our virtual admin staff. • Once you and your therapist decide to work together, you and your therapist will get really curious about all the things that are going on that are related to your anger problems. • You and your therapist will review your personal history and trauma history for meaningful links. • You and your therapist will work on building enough trust that you feel comfortable telling him or her all the things about your inner life that are relevant. • You will explore how your life experiences, thoughts, and situational specifics seem to be combining to spark your anger. • You will work on strategies to deflate the factors that make you see red, without changing you into a flat, lifeless pancake. • You will start feeling better after a period of putting in the work (about 8 sessions), IF you're being honest and transparent with your therapist. If not, it'll take longer.
Is Psychotherapy for Anger right for me?
• Are you committed to making a change in your emotional life and your relationships? • Are you willing to invest in yourself financially and have the funds to give this a fair shake? • Will you give yourself the time you need to turn around a challenging problem? • Realistically, only you can decide if this is right for you. • If you're not sure about who you might like to see, that's ok! An option is to book a free 15-minute consultation to get a "feel" for the therapist of your choosing?
