Oh, anger, often relegated to the shadows as the most maligned emotion in the human repertoire. Yet, it is my fervent passion and ambition to redefine its narrative, shedding light on this potent emotion's healthy and empowering uses. Acknowledged for its potential to become one of the most poisonous energies when mismanaged, anger has been implicated in family breakdowns, wars, lost relationships, emotional harm, and tragically, even death. It's no wonder that society often perceives anger as the problem, prescribing the solution as suppressing or never expressing it. Unfortunately, this approach doesn't lead to healing toxic anger, which I define as the kind that manifests as a destructive force, causing harm and leaving poisonous aftermaths. The path to healing unhealthy anger emerges when we dare to recognize anger as a precious emotion. This guide can lead us to a world where healthy boundaries shape relationships, justice guides us through addressing problematic situations, and self-care and self-respect become guiding beacons in the vast expanse of our lives. Across millions of years of evolution, anger has served as a vital signal, alerting us to instances of hurt, mistreatment, neglect, or abuse. Its healthy purpose extends beyond mere survival; it empowers us to create harmonious and peaceful experiences with ourselves and our communities. However, the unfortunate consequence of society's tendency to discard all forms of anger is the epidemic of toxic anger we witness today. Toxic anger, I believe, is the misguided use of this powerful emotion—redirecting pain toward the wrong targets and employing inappropriate tools for expression. People often blame anger for the misuse of this energy, and when addressing anger management, my approach goes beyond preventing harmful outbursts. I strive to guide individuals toward understanding the messages embedded within themselves, transforming signals of frustration and anger into powerful fuel for positive life transformation and inner peace. Understanding the healthy aspect of anger becomes apparent when we experience or witness injustice, feeling a surge of anger. I believe this form of anger has fueled human revolutions led by inspiring figures such as Nelson Mandela, Mahatma Gandhi, and Martin Luther King. Leaders like them harnessed anger in its healthiest form—transforming the desire to harm into a commitment to establishing clear boundaries, standing up for justice, and never remaining silent in the face of injustice. Throughout my own life, advocating for justice and assisting others in developing this capability has been a profound passion. With this passion, I extend an invitation to transform your relationship with anger, utilizing it as a catalyst to enhance your life rather than perpetuating harm to yourself and those you hold dear through toxic anger. It would be my honour to guide you on this transformative journey.

Anger management requires the individual to own his/her emotions, including anger, rather than ascribing them to the other. Once owned, overwhelming feelings become manageable because managing them doesn't rely on changing the other. Preferred method: cognitive-behavioral techniques.
