Anger Management

Anger is a natural and powerful emotion that everyone will feel from time to time.  There is nothing inherintly wrong with anger - in fact when it is managed appropriately  anger can serve as a healthy signal that something might not be right or possibly needs a little of your attention.  

However, if we allow anger to have free reign of our thoughts and is left unchecked, it can quickly spiral out of control and divolve to negative conesquences for ourselves and for those around us.  Despite the fact that often our anger may be justified, discussing some of our triggers, and topics, and buiding some skills and techniqes around anger is essential for maintaining healthy relationships and overall wellbeing.

At Refresh Counselling, you’ll find a safe, caring, and supportive environment to process feelings, fears, traumas, and obstacles.  You will also gain clarity, insight, and build up skills and strategies to help you break through limitations and find more resilience and hope!

Beside You On Your Journey

The circumstances that may prompt a person to seek the support offered by therapy are unique. So too is each person’s journey through the process. There is no “one-size-fits-all” solution to get better and move on. Our team of Calgary psychologists and Counsellors are committed to meeting you where you are at and guiding you with thoughtful insight and skill to where you hope to go. The path to healing and wellness may be different for everyone but there are some common touchstones that you can expect:

  • Exploring and processing feelings, needs, losses, traumas
  • Gaining self-awareness and perspectives
  • Learning new skills-- overcoming challenges and moving towards multiple aspects of health and well-being

Some common concerns that can be explored with Individual Counselling are:

  • Anger Management
  • Anxiety
  • Body Image
  • Boundaries
  • Cancer
  • Cultural Issues
  • Decision-Making
  • Depression
  • Eating Issues
  • Emotional Regulation
  • Family of Origin Issues
  • Fear
  • Guilt

  • Relationships
  • Self-Care

These are just some of the difficulties that patients may choose to work through. And often there may be several interconnected obstacles to recognize and evaluate. Your counsellor can help you understand your challenges more deeply; explore and process important feelings, values, and beliefs; and identify some missing pieces that might be important in finding joy, peace, resolution, and healing.  Start feeling better and more grounded today!

Individual Counselling FAQs

We offer you a complimentary consultation (a 20-minute session).  This provides the opportunity to meet your therapist, ask any questions, understand what future sessions will be like, and ensure that you feel safe and a connection with your psychologist.  This also gives us a chance to get to know you a bit and prepare for our next session.

Not at all. Everyone needs help sometimes. You may have had some skills or strengths that you’ve used to deal with challenges before, but for whatever reason, those aren’t working right now. Perhaps what you are dealing with right now feels overwhelming and you are unable to access your past strengths. Through your relationship with your counsellor and the process of therapy, you can explore the challenges you are facing and find your inner strength or develop new skills and strategies to find healing.


We offer Direct Billing to several different insurance providers.  Generally, direct billing is determined by the therapist's designation.  Below is a list of the current direct bill breakdowns.

Registered Psychologist:  GreenSheild, Alberta Blue Cross, Canada Life, Manulife.

Registered Provisional Psychologist and Registered Social Worker:  GreenSheild, Alberta Blue Cross

If your sessions cannot be direct billed, we will provide you with a receipt you can submit to your insurance company for reimbursement, assuming your policy allows for the proper coverage.

Occasionally, some insurance companies  ask for a little more information about your therapist to confirm their coverage for services.  If that happens, please email our office with the specific information you will require and we will be happy to provide that to you. 

(Please note: we cannot guarantee direct billing or insurance coverage - we always recommend confirming coverage with your specific provider)
