Anger Management Counselling is a service where clients are offered strategies and techniques to manage excessive anger and make better life choices. We also offer a compressed version of the Anger Management Program, the details for which can be found on the home page under "Anger Workshop". Most of this counselling service is done on a one-on-one basis.  Overall, it can make a person's  life happier because much unhappiness and difficulties in relationships are caused by an inability to manage excessive anger. Anger management means to direct the energy of anger into productive and prosocial activities; it is not the same as anger control; See FAQ section

Mindfulness is a way of being  that is based on ancient eastern philosophy, mainly Buddhism, that entails focusing your awareness and senses to whatever you are doing in the present moment and not dwelling on the past or the future as much as you can. It means living in the moment- not necessarily for the moment- and in a non-judgemental, experiential way. Mindfulness promotes one's overall physical and mental well-being and is a pathway to happiness.
