Anger Management Counselling Toronto
Anger is a natural and everyday emotion that we all experience, but it can often cause problems when we have trouble controlling it. Anger management is the practice of reducing stress, controlling behaviours while feeling angry, and taking personal responsibility for outcomes of actions committed while in an angry state of mind.
What is Anger Management Counselling & Psychotherapy?
Counselling and Psychotherapy can help you achieve lasting positive change in dealing with anger and rage. Anger Management counselors at KMA help you explore key triggers for the anger, which can include workplace issues, family relationships, and social environments. Our anger-management therapists also develop treatment plans which empower you to take control: Developing tools and resources to change your current environments, change automatic negative thought patterns and negative self-talk, and promote psychologically healthier patterns of living.
How does Anger Management Counselling at KMA work?
1. 50-Minute Consultation
Psychotherapy and Counselling here at KMA Therapy begins with a 50 minute consultation with our director, Kimberly Moffit, or one of our intake counsellors. In these fifty minutes, we will ask important questions to determine the nature of the problem and treatment approach needed for your anger management. We’re also asking questions to get a better sense of your personality.
We believe the consultation is very important so we find you a counselor who is the ‘right fit’. The consultation is also a wonderful time to address any questions and concerns you may have. Here we will also provide you with a customized ‘plan of action’ – this includes the recommended anger-management counselor who is best equipped to suit your needs, a recommended duration of therapy (if applicable), and any additional testing or psychological services we feel would be helpful.
The fee for 50-minute consultations is $190 and this is usually covered by your workplace benefits package.
2. 50-Minute Weekly Sessions
After the consultation, clients attend sessions at our clinic on a weekly basis with your assigned therapist for the recommended treatment duration. Here, our objective is to work through the treatment plan, goals, and objectives set in your initial consultation. All sessions after the consultation are 50 minutes in length.
3. Finish and Evaluate
After completing the recommended program, we check in for another consultation appointment to check in on what your experience was like. If you’re still struggling (and everyone takes a different amount of time to work through issues), we may recommend continued therapy to keep you on the right track. If you’re feeling like you’ve made significant improvement in your issues, your weekly therapy ends here. We will likely give you reading materials to help you along the way and you’re welcome to come back for a check-in session at any time. After your therapy, we always love to hear how you’re doing and what you’ve accomplished!
