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.

Great facilitator! I really enjoyed the professionalism, empathy and resources provided.

This workshop is a heartwarming & wonderful process. It's not often you find opportunities to share such vulnerability with others as well as have such helpful feedback amidst learning. The instruction and guidance of Alejandra is both very practical as well as atuned and compassionate. She is very dialed in to the concerns of you as the participant in your anger but also you as a valid human-being with your own story. A story that has informed the emotional landscape leading to your current relationship with anger. This workshop offers many perspectives on anger as well as ways to act/or not react while experiencing it.

I really enjoyed the Healing Anger group. Thank you Ale, for guiding me and for teaching useful tools for connecting with myself and be a better friend, partner and person.
Candace Asconi
Ale was a great facilitator. The resources she provided and the discussions really helped. I was very hesitant at first but Ale helped us all feel welcome and heard. She created a space for us to learn and explore our relationship with anger. It was a huge help and I’m really glad I took the step out of my comfort zone to take the course with an open mind. I would definitely recommend this course for anyone struggling with anger, resentment, irritability or frustrations in their lives. Ale helped identify triggers and tools to help reframe the way I act, react and respond.

Alejandra is tender and masterful at navigating the complex emotions of the group. She creates a safe environment that promotes true vulnerability.
Christina Gibson
Healing Anger for Women group sessions was a fun, joyful, life altering, accountability provoking, learning experience that allowed me to deeply connect with my inner child and the collective vulnerability of the group members. I did not expect the healing, support, transparency from the fellow group members and am deeply grateful for this unexpected bonus.
Stephanie Hoi
Such a powerful learning experience. I do not struggle with Anger but I was able to learn so much about difficult emotions that arise from it. I recommend this to ANYONE who wants to be more self-aware and build a healthy relationship with themselves and others. This was such a safe space to share and learn together in the group. Thank you Alejandra!
Brenda Cartier
I have really enjoyed my group session. I have grown a lot, I felt heard and supported. Alejandra gave us lots of great information and tools to use in our own personal growth. The group of women also had great stories, I didn’t feel alone while going through difficult issues I had dealing and talking about.

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.
