Turn your anger

Harness the
energy of anger



anger into growth




Guiding people to relate to their anger in a healthy way is what Healing Anger is about.

Anger moves us. Anger is the element of fire. With fire, we can make beautiful art work or burn our home down, even with the ones we love and us inside. Anger can also be like a hot coal, hurting silently the one who holds it. But healthy anger can also illuminate and show us the path towards change. Anger can move people to pay attention to what needs to be looked at to heal, transform, and grow. 

A more beneficial response to anger takes some skill. It includes hearing what the body has to say, understanding the emotion and what is behind it, and expressing without hostility but clarity. Finding our voice and body, becoming deliberate and thoughtful, choosing who to speak with, how to speak, what to say, is not an easy thing to do. We are here to help you do that. 

People don’t often think of anger as healing or constructive, but we believe that it is behind all significant change. Look at history. Do you think that maybe Gandhi was a little pissed off that the British were ruling India? What about the Me Too movement as the powerful platform for other women to tell their silenced stories? Any significant political and cultural change seems to start with anger. Anger can fuel you to do what is needed. When women attend our groups and individual counselling, it is to turn that energy, that focus, that drive, into something that creates an accomplishment. 

But anger is not only a problem if that is the primary emotion that you seem to project. Anger is also unhealthy if you feel like you can not contact it or feel like you are not supposed to feel it and express it. Multiple research suggests both unhealthy expressions can affect our physical health in the long run. 

We have worked with thousands of people on this topic and have refined our work over the last 25 years so that you can benefit. To live a healthy life, we need to harness the energy that anger provides us with to establish clear boundaries respectfully. Our anger can be healing and sacred. That is, it can help us maintain integrity when people cross our boundaries or mistreat us to respond in a skillful, caring and effective way.

The group class was amazing! It helps you look at your anger in different ways.
Being able to open my heart and feel vulnerable was a wonderful experience, those weeks made me see things from another perspective. Learn to recognize my pain and heal, I learned how to clean my heart and I am doing it in my daily life. They gave me the tools to manage my anger which I understood that it is not bad to feel anger on the contrary it is good when you use/feel it in an appropriate way. Listening to other women with traumas/experiences similar to mine was a great help and being able to vent in a safe environment free of judgment.

This course was truly life changing. Being in a group of woman who struggled with so many of the same issues I had and all of us working through them together was such a divine experience. Ale the teacher was destined for this work. Her calming, gentle way of teaching made it so much easier to absorb all the information we were being taught. I am so grateful for this course and ready to implement all the skills we learned.
I highly recommend that every human being take this course. I knew about emotional regulation going into the course and still learned a lot from the materials and the experience of being in a group setting with these wonderful counsellors. This course helped me move forward on my journey with anger, myself, and my partner and other relationships.

It was a great group experience, the facilitators were extremely experienced,, intuitive and compassionate. I felt very safe to freely and openly share vulnerable things. I will be doing the course again in April. I highly recommend this course to anyone that has struggled many years of big emotions (anger & despair) and the effect that has had on your life, it’s very helpful to be a part of a group of women who have as well.

The Healing Anger course offered by Alejandra and Brinita is a must if you are searching to learn and develop tools to heal the root of it. In a secure and friendly space with other amazing women, Alejandra and her co-host deliver sound, creative and reliable therapy. I have walked away with knowledge and skills that I can access anywhere and anytime. Alejandra and Brinita bring their experience, their knowledge and wisdom to a much needed educational program in the community at large. This course is a ten out of ten ad I would recommend it to any woman.

Finding the Healing Anger group was a huge blessing! To be able to be part of such a powerful and informative group has been so helpful in my healing journey. Alejandra and Brinita are wonderful and very knowledgeable facilitators. They lead with kindness and compassion and gave us tools to navigate different feelings that came up during the sessions. It was a safe space where a group of woman came together to share their own stories and where we were all supportive of one another. I walked away from this group feeling that I’m not alone and with useful tools to incorporate in my daily life. I highly recommend this group to anyone who wants to work on personal growth. Anger is a normal emotion, however, it often carries this negative stigma with it. Learning how to work through this emotion in healthy ways and uncovering what lies beneath this emotion is so important for ourselves and it will also help with other relationships. Thank you so much Ale and Brinita.

The Healing Anger - women’s group felt like such a gift. It’s a very safe space to learn, grow, and heal. I would highly recommend!
Jennifer Martin
An absolutely amazing program that offers women a safe and compassionate filled space to explore their inner selves. I was feeling very isolated in my relationship with anger until I found Healing Anger. It brought together a group of women who listened and shared in their own experiences with anger which has allowed me comfort in knowing I am not alone as I continue to grow.

Healing Anger: Transforming Anger Into Growth

This book has helped thousands of people become more in charge of their response to anger, to others acting poorly, and to the things that trigger them. After reading the book people experience a deeper understanding of their own anger and gain insight into what is behind this powerful emotion.

What We Do

We offer a range of services to help you to discover how to deal skillfully with anger in a setting that suits your needs, in either individual, couple or group sessions. Although we provide the tools that help you deal with anger when it arises, we also focus on the question “Why am I getting this angry in the first place?” Through our work, we have found that people gain more effective control of their temper once they have insights about what lies behind their anger.

Healing Anger Group for Women

In our Healing Anger Groups for Women, we offer a safe and supportive setting where women learn to relate to this emotion in a powerfully caring and constructive way. Our groups run every 6 weeks and are held at our Downtown Vancouver office. The cost for these groups is $630, tax included and book included (scholarships available for those on income assistance or disability). Join our groups from anywhere in the world!

Individual & Couples Counselling

Individual and Couples Counselling can range from a one-off session to deal with a specific situation, to support during a specific process, to longer-term support in creating a deep and long-lasting transformation in your life. We have many years of experience working to help couples find ways to reconnect and resolve their differences, deepen their bond and grow together, or clarify if they need to separate, how they can do so in a caring and respectful way.
