Does thinking about your weight leave you feeling defeated? Frustrated? Hopeless? Unfailing willpower doesn’t come from the perfect diet or exercise program… it comes from the mind. It’s not the diet we have to get right. Learning to manage your mind and identify self-sabotaging beliefs can be key to achieving your weight management goals. Sometimes, it’s not the diet we have to get right. Learning to manage your mind and identify self-sabotaging thoughts and beliefs can be key to achieving your weight management goals. Emotional eating, whether as a result of a bad mood or in the form of “treats” and “rewards”, and negative beliefs, such as “I will never be able to,” “I’m going to fail”...

Steve Rose, PhD

Addiction Counsellor

Available for Online Therapy

I help clients overcome addictive relationships with food. Like all addictions, the behavior is the tip of the iceberg, used to cope with underlying thoughts and emotions. Through collaborative conversations, clients gain insight into underlying concerns, gaining coping skills to more effectively navigate these issues. I draw on Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) and Motivational Interviewing (MI), helping clients achieve a sense of freedom and control over their lives, leading to long-term change.

Eating disorders benefit from the same or similar approach used for all addictive behaviours. One of the main therapeutic approaches I use is Mindfulness Based Cognitive Therapy. The relationship to food can be quite complex involving societal or cultural pressures, self-image, past traumas, addictive non-nutritious junk food, media images, social media pressures, bullying. Shame and guilt need to be addressed along with peer pressures. The most common eating disorders are: Anorexia, Bulimia, Binge Eating, Pica, Rumination Disorder, Avoidance/Restrictive Food Intake Disorder (ARFID), Orthorexia, Purging Disorder etc. The benefits of therapy are enhanced self-image, health and well-being.

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.

I help clients with eating disorders using cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT), a research-based form of therapy in which I am certified. I focus on giving clients strategies to manage urges to binge eat or to binge and purge combined with helping them to address underlying issues and emotions which are driving their eating disorder behaviours.

At Home or Private Discreet Intensives

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.

I specialize in addictions. If you would like to see me, book now by visiting https://app.acuityscheduling.com/schedule.php?owner=14249112

In T2R 1E8 - Nearby to High River.

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!

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.

Far beyond simple management strategies, we offer a comprehensive approach that gets to the roots of the spiritual, emotional and relational struggles that drive eating disorders. If try-harder approaches have failed and you already know more about this issue then your therapist, perhaps it's time to deal with the source of the problem and gain the skills that you can use to set yourself free.

In T2E 0S9 - Nearby to High River.

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.

In T2J 3Z3 - Nearby to High River.

I specialize in treating eating disorders, binge-eating and self-esteem/body image concerns. Using Cognitive Behavioural Therapy and Dialectical Behavioural Therapy, I help you to understand the function of your eating disorder, and to find healthy ways to meet this need that the eating disorder was providing. I can assist you in better understanding how eating disorders work, and help guide you on your recovery. This type of support can benefit you as people with eating disorders often live in isolation with shame, so beginning to talk about the eating disorder is the first step to finding recovery and to no longer hiding alone.
