Not everybody fits anger management learned in a group

Some people aren't able to fit it into their schedule...they need to schedule at odd times in-between travel or shift work. Others have unique learning needs that require "tailoring" of the material to your unique style.  For others, English is an additional language and extra time is required to ensure comprehension, or the participant brings along a translator to ensure understanding of the concepts and to facilitate a productive conversation.

Some have unique circumstances in how their anger is expressed...an individual focus is needed to ensure the particular "angle" of how you are triggered into anger is addressed directly.  Please note that we work to ensure that each client receives the appropriate service.  For example, if you would like to do individual work, but require a course of greater length, the number of sessions can be increased to satisfy the necessary criteria.  Additional sessions are $90.00 per hour during weekdays and $100.00 in the evenings or weekends.

Maryann H. Friesen, Heather Pringle and Michael Quiring are the therapists who work through the "Transforming Destructive into Constructive" (TDC) course with individuals.

Over the course of 4 one hour sessions (or two sessions of two hours each), you will be guided through the manual, encouraged to tell your unique story of how you experience and express your anger.

You will find yourself able to focus in the areas that seem most relevant to you.  You and your therapist will be able to partner together to explore your unique triggers and the unique strategies that will have your anger work FOR you, rather than AGAINST you. You will have a chance to not only learn to handle anger when it arises, but grow to understand what is happening inside of you when anger occurs, allowing new growth to occur that changes how anger happens in your body.

The "lowdown" on individual sessions:

When?

During the day, evening or on weekends, scheduled at a mutually convenient time in one or two hour "chunks". Please note that there must be at least a 7 day period between the second and third hour of the program.  This allows for better integration and understanding of the material.

Where?

Individual anger management sessions are held at our offices at 105-1483 Pembina Highway or 143 Smith St.

What does it include?

The TDC package includes four hours of therapy focusing on anger--it's expression and experience, the manual, and a certificate of completion upon successful completion of the course.

What is the fee?

For the entire package, including 4 hours of dedicated time with a skilled therapist, a confirmation letter upon completion of registration, a manual, and a certificate of completion, you will pay $365.00 for day time sessions.  Each hour that is scheduled after 5:00 or on weekends will have a surcharge of $10.00 per hour. You can arrange for payment with us when setting up the times with us.
