COVID‑19 Message

Anger Management programs at this time have been put on hold as we adhere to Public Safety. As an organization, we are doing our best to adapt to how we work, while protecting the safety of our people so that we can continue to serve our valued clients. In order to do this, we continue to carefully monitor COVID‑19 developments and actively review our practices. We will update the website with group information when we are able to resume. Please feel free to contact the facilitator Sarah James with any other questions.

Anger Management Group Counselling

This intensive psycho-educational group program is for men who want to acquire new skills for managing and communicating their anger. Referrals are accepted to meet supervisory orders, such as bail, probation and parole. Referrals from EAP and/or employers are also accepted. Self-referrals are always welcome! This program does not address Domestic Violence interventions or treatment. All court documentation indicates this.
