Eating disorders come in many different forms via restricting, purging and/or binging. I work with the eating disorder to defuse the cycle of the disorder itself but to also decrease underlying symptoms such as past hurts, increasing body image, self-esteem, deconstructing unhelpful beliefs and myths, and creating a new way to love your body and love your self.

While most eating disorder issues are treated by cognitive behavioral methodologies or specialized outpatient/inpatient programs, Grey Matters International and the work of Kevin J. Fleming, PhD provide relief first and foremost for the brain of one suffering from an eating disorder----without giving them medication. We believe that the neural circuitries responsible for the compulsive behaviors with eating are not necessarily only a neurotransmitter issue but of overused neural networks that affect the harmonization, balance, and decisions of the whole brain. Contact kevin@kevinfleminphd.com or 877-606-6161 to learn more about this safe and effective alternative.

In T2R 1E8 - Nearby to Chestermere.

Tired and frustrated with your eating habits, yet hesitant to tell anyone about it or discuss why? You're not alone. Countless numbers of women and men courageously shared with me their deeper selves, and found a better understanding of the underlying emotional, soul and thought-life issues (including body image and self-esteem). Over time they came to experience freedom and gain a sense of mastery and control over their behaviors, their eating, and their inner emotional world. Together we'll get to know the individual 'personality' of your distortions/disorder, get you the needed tools and carefully move you into freedom and wholeness. Call today!

Emotions and eating are very closely connected. Disordered eating is not about food. It is a coping strategy that comes in a package with lots of nasty 'life side-effects'. It can impact girls or boys, and women or men -- and it thrives in secrecy and critical judgment. If disordered eating has inserted itself into your life or your family, I can help you learn more about it, challenge the dysfunctional messages it tells you, and change unhealthy coping patterns. I can help you get off 'automatic pilot' and begin to make decisions in your life independent from your eating disorder, and to risk experiencing life and all of the emotions it contains in healthy ways.

Dr. Val Has worked with a number of clients who have eating disorders. She searches for what is the hole in the client that needs filling? What is the client feeling powerless over? Self esteem issues also go along with eating disorders? Of what might the client be ashamed? Subconsciously, do they want to keep people away? Why? Approaches such as EMDR and Hypnotherapy can be very helpful. Respect and genuine caring for the client are invaluable & essential.

Registered Clinical Counselor / Canadian Certified Counselor

In T3M 1H5 - Nearby to Chestermere.

Eating Disorders can impact someone as negatively as any type of serious addiction. However, unlike addiction treatment plans, food must continue to play a role in your life. My basic goal is to stop further development of any eating problem you may have, and assist you in returning to a healthy lifestyle. The most successful focus is on harm reduction as an overall principle in addressing eating disorders, with the end goal of moving towards complete recovery. I also typically want to establish effective coping skills to reduce the possibility of relapse and sustain the progress you make in therapy.

Therapist/Counsellor

In T2N 1P1 - Nearby to Chestermere.

In working with individuals dealing with eating disorders such as anorexia nervosa, bulimia nervosa and body image or weight issues, I’m reminded that I’m made of language in which I’m situated. This realization has helped me to be less judgmental of others (what I may view as truth or beautiful may not be someone else’s truth/beauty). I challenge clients to understand that they have a power/choice to write their personal stories. I provide a safe space and encourage my clients to locate themselves in the way that matters to them. Locating of self merely happens in an interpersonal context or ‘social field.’ A relational cultural theory that I learned in school helps me to implement that.

Registered Psychologist- Depression, Anxiety, and Trauma Counselling

In T2E 0S9 - Nearby to Chestermere.

Appearance is unfortunately at the core of our culture. As such, many struggle with viewing themselves as less than they actually are. Our worth is not found in our appearance, however that is hard to believe when we are told the opposite over and over again. Those that struggle with eating disorders see themselves as less valuable because of their appearance. My treatment method for eating disorders includes increasing coping skills, helping individuals find their worth in who they through self- discovery, and healing unhealthy messages of self.
