Anger Rage & Control Management

At the Houston Center for Training & Supervision, our approach to anger management focuses attention on the root of the anger, and the fear attached to those underlying issues. We use strategies to heal the root cause that most other anger management programs neglect. Robin Exum M.Ed., LPC-S, LCDC, NCC  is trained to help all his clients overcome all abusive behavior, beginning with anger & rage, control and blame and selfish demands, because that's where abuse usually begins. From there, Robin will teach a client to stop making disrespectful judgments, and then he or she is finally in a better position to get angry outbursts under control. The underlying theme of this approach to anger management is to make my client aware of the fact that he or she has been hurt, abused and disrespected in their own life. Clients are made aware they have no right trying to control anyone else, regardless of what that person is doing. From there we go on to create habits that take the place of demands, disrespect, anger and rage, so that my clients can get what he or she needs from their spouse without being controlling.

Remember, in marriage you can be your spouse's greatest source of pleasure, but you can also be your spouse's greatest source of pain, particularly if you use the controlling and abusive strategies of demands, disrespect and anger to try to get what you need in marriage. If you use them, you are almost sure to lose your spouse's love for you.

Sometimes Anger Management Seems Impossible

Disputes and conflict are unavoidable, especially when anger & rage impact the wellbeing of your entire family. You may feel empty and have to walk on egg-shells in order to approach issues that are important. When it comes to anger related to loss, divorce, infidelity, compulsive disorders, addiction and more, it’s normal for emotions to run high and for communication to dissolve or erupt. It’s even common for one or all parties to feel pressured to submit to a compromise they don’t really want. Thankfully, no matter how tangled and infuriating your dispute may be, Robin Exum can help you reach a satisfying resolution.

Solutions Are Possible With Couples Therapy

At the Houston Center for Training & Supervision, Robin Exum offers each partner the chance to enter a calm, confidential space where you can identify shared goals and creatively problem-solve. With the guidance of Robin's  calm anger management therapy, you and your partner can reach an agreement, but also restore a sense of peace and intimacy in your relationships. 

How Couples Therapy Works
