Healing Anger was established by Alistair Moes, Director of Moose Anger Management working in conjunction with women counsellors. The objective was to provide counseling that focused on anger management that was tailored specifically for women and couples. Working together with Alejandra Proaño, M.Sc., M.A. (Psy.), M.A (Lit.), they have rewritten the text used in the course to incorporate issues that are especially relevant to women’s anger. Alejandra is now leading the groups. Alistair continues to be actively involved in Healing Anger as well as Moose Anger Management.
Alejandra Proaño has worked on issues around anger and violence with women, men, families, and organizations in Canada, Mexico, Colombia, and in her home country of Ecuador. She facilitates groups and sees individuals, couples and families. With more than 18 years of experience in the field, she is also a published author, international consultant, speaker, and professional coach. She facilitates the women’s groups, which start approximately every 7 weeks, and co-facilitates some of the men’s groups with Moose Anger Management. Alejandra has a BA in psychology, a Specialization in Systemic Therapies, and a Master of Psychology degree. She also has a Master of Science degree (Technology Management) and a Master of Arts (Literature). Read more >>
Alistair has been working professionally as a counsellor/educator since 1989 and in private practice since 1994. During this time Alistair has developed a manner of working with men and women which is respectful, solution-focussed and based on both academic theory and extensive experience.

It completely depends on what each person is looking for. During the last twenty-two years he has worked with thousands of people who have made the phone call out of a desire to create change. Although he has facilitated court-ordered men, he now works exclusively with self-referred clients. Read more >>
