"Terri my relationships are back on track. The work we did and continue to do has been a life saver for me. In spite of all the raving mad rages my wife experienced from me she now gets to see a new me. As you know we are rebuilding. I have a lot of trust to earn back but I am well on my way."  George, G Halifax 

George is a 43 year old man who had been experiencing anger issues for the majority of his life. His anger problem began during his teen years. His father also had challenges with anger and a significant portion of George’s developmental years were spent watching his father move between what he described as a Heckle and Hyde moods swings. Sometimes, life at home was quiet and other times it became very chaotic. His fathers unpredictability created an atmosphere of intense strain for all members of the family, and emotional abuse was fairly constant.

George learned to see himself as incapable of satisfying his father. This led to periods of depression and bouts of alcohol misuse in his teen years. He had ongoing challenges with authority figures, was often suspended from school for angry outbursts and had several brushes with the law before he was 18.

Over the years George learned to deeply identify with being a “mad” person. In spite of continuous attempts to learn more self control he continued to act out, often feeling frustrated and misunderstood. He brought this stance into each of his relationships and time and time again the people he cared about left him, becoming fed up with his anger problem.

George finally called for support after his current wife requested a divorce. In spite of traditional therapy and couple’s counselling, the couple had several separations over the years. George’s unresolved anger continued to create challenges, and at the encouragement of family and friends, his wife decided that she could no longer tolerate the environment George was creating in the home. She was deeply concerned about the negative role model George was being for their children.

George has proven to be an excellent candidate for this work. He has committed to following through with  success planning recommendations and feels more in control of his thoughts, feelings and actions then ever before. He no longer sees a anger persona as being a given as a result of early experiences and is becoming more positively empowered everyday.  As indicated above, he is making important strides in developing a healthier relationship with his wife.
