Hi, thanks for visiting. So many people tell us after attending the first group or individual session how they looked at the website, or heard about us, years ago, or months ago, and thought to themselves: “I’ll work it out on my own”, and then after attending the second session the vast majority of people will talk about how much better things are going. After the last session, we hear about how the person wishes they had done this years ago, or in High School. We also recognize that it takes a lot of courage to make the first phone call, and to walk into the room. Those who do, and bring motivation, put in the effort, and commit to creating change, experience solid results. We have seen it thousands of times. We feel very grateful for the opportunity to witness such change and wish you well.
Men and women attend our programs because they have realized that their reaction to anger is costing them in their personal and/or professional relationships. After an angry outburst they, and often the people around them, are left feeling confused, embarrassed, frightened, and sometimes even hurt, emotionally and/or physically. Those who attend our courses tend to be those who care so much about those around them that they are willing to take this step.
At Moose Anger Management, founded by Alistair Moes (pronounced ‘moose’), anger is not seen as inherently bad. Alistair and his partner Alejandra Proaño have found that anger is far more complex than most people imagine and, in fact, can often lead toward constructive behaviour.

While here at our website please feel free to learn more about us and and ways to work constructively with this complex emotion. You can contact us at any time if you have questions about our work or any of our programs. Also follow us on Twitter.

We have a team of counsellors who offer couple, family, and individual counselling for both adult men and women, and teenagers. The individual sessions are flexible and can be more responsive to your specific situation, making time for you to explore your needs, face your challenges, make the most of your resources, and learn new ways of relating to anger, to yourself and to the people in your life.
Our groups offer you the chance of learning alongside others who, like you, care enough to change what they do with their anger. The group also provides a very supportive environment where people are treated with respect and understanding that facilitates the transformation of anger into something constructive.
Our Men’s groups run 15 times per year.
