Here are what some participants are saying about the benefits they've received from
our Anger Management Classes:
"From a Relieved Customer...
At first, I was reluctant to do the online course. Now I feel pretty darn good about
it. I passed but most importantly, I learned from it. It should be named something
like 'Character Development' so that I would hang the certificate proudly---the
'Anger Management' title gives a slanted tone of achievement. My board directed
me to take this even though I am 66-years ago and now seven years as a CEO.
Obviously, the directive to take the course was somewhat embarassing for me since
I have won numerous awards and have been a community leader for years. Yet, I have
no reservations about promoting the course.
Good work and thank you."

"I have been to many counselors and pastors for my problem. I can unequivocally
say that this book and class just make sense. Coupled with the scientific information
I have received from Dr Tony, the classes have increased my understanding not just
of anger but of all things related to anger. This class has changed my attitude
I believe those who have no anger management problems or those who think they have
no problem with anger should consider your class for a greater understanding of
those angry people around them. In short: everyone can benefit from your class.
I consider your class a self-improvement class in addition to helping with ones

"Thank you so much for having me in your anger management classes....I have
never thought I would be taking your class. Boy!!! I was wrong...what I have learned
in your class are that the tools.. are not just for a person with an anger problem.
We all have a choice in life and anger is a reminder to "think twice" before acting
on or reacting to a problem or situation.....Being a father and having a seven and
a three year old beautiful daughter living at home is tough. Everyday, trying to
understand their needs and meeting their needs is a full time job and your class
helps a lot. Once again, thank you very much, Dr Tony Fiore for giving me the education
that I need. We all need to get ourselves educated once in a while just to keep
up with our daily life."

"Today I discovered extensive water damage to my house. I am just amazed how
well I handled it, despite the insurance company at first refusing to pay for it.
I feel I am on top of the world since I handled it so well. Your process is working.
Thank you so much."
Mary Ann, age 50
"I truly have enjoyed your classes and will definitely go back as I go through
life and address issues that I may still have. I know that my wife and daughters
have definitely seen a change in me, thanks to you. The one phrase I learned in
your class and which has made a big impact on myself is as follows, "You cannot
control people, places or things even though some people go through life trying
to do so." I would like to thank you and the group for such a tremendous change
in my life on how I should handle myself. I definitely have a different look on
life and with my anger issues."
Carl C., Garden Grove, CA
"By the time I first contacted Dr. Fiore, anger had nearly ended my short lived
1-year marriage and 4-year relationship with my husband. My husband and I were living
in separate homes, unable to communicate in a positive manner and extremely hurt
and disenchanted by one another. I blamed my husband for everything...I wanted nothing
else to do with him when he finally turned his anger on my 10-year old son...The
first time we had an appointment with Dr. Fiore my husband and I cancelled. We,
of course, had an argument. He felt like I was pushing him to go and I felt like
if he really wanted us back he would have to make the effort. After a couple months
we finally made it to our first class and believe it or not, we left happy. Not
because all of our problems were solved but because we both realized there was a
solution if only we were willing to listen, learn, and practice a different way
of communicating and understanding feelings, emotions, needs, and respond accordingly...I
am grateful to say that after 6 or 7 sessions with Dr. Fiore we have seen a vast
improvement in our relationship...I, personally, have learned so much more from
this class than I expected to."

"Dear Dr. Tony,
I am writing you this to share my appreciation for your series of anger and stress
management classes. As mentioned in our first conversation, I had searched for a
counselor who was both a specialist in this area and with whom I would feel personally
comfortable. You met both of these criteria. I consulted with three and met with
one other counselor in person. However, I felt that you were the best and most appropriate
In addition, I've had the opportunity to participate in two of your groups at both
the Orange and Long Beach locations. I've enjoyed and benefited greatly from each
of the groups.
I thank you again, and should anyone of your prospective clients be in need of a
recommendation or additional information about your program, please have them contact
Thank you again,

"Dear Dr. Fiore,
I would like to say thanks for your help and that I really learned a lot from the
program. When I first started I thought I could learn to not be angry at all, but
found that goal was not realistic. Instead it was my inappropriate way of expressing
anger that got me into the problems I was facing. By using techniques such as "the
formula", recognizing my own negative "self talk" and taking the time to consider
alternatives I have been able to reduce my personal stress level by 90%. I feel
better equipped to face life's daily challenges. The classes were fun, educational
and rewarding. The most important changes we make are not those recognized by others
but the ones we recognize in ourselves. On that note I have definitely recognized
a change for the better in me."
Joel Nelson, Cypress, CA
"I really enjoyed the classes. They definitely helped me with my anger issues
as well as helping me understand a lot about myself. The program made me more aware
of my feelings and how to express them as well. The book was easy to read and gave
light on a perspective that I really was not in touch with before taking the program.
I would highly recommend the anger management classes to anyone with anger problems.
Not only with relationship problems but with day to day stresses in life as well.
Eight months ago when my relationship ended I thought my life was over. Now, I am
a lot stronger and happier individual than I was ever in my life. I can honestly
smile at life now and how precious it is. I am more open with my family and friends.
I use the skills I have learned from Dr. Fiore and the book on a day to day basis."
