Addictions Counselling / Treatment can clear any contributing factors that has caused or supports the addiction. When an individual is on the journey of recovery and finally free of the addiction, there is no transferring from one addiction to another addictive pattern. The central nervous system is able to let go of any contributing factors such as old traumas, loss, grief, pain, fear, anger, old conditioning and programming from an earlier time so there is no reason to numb with an addiction. The central nervous system is no longer in fight-flight-freeze-or collapse and the Deep Limbic System, Basal Ganglia, Prefrontal Cortex, Cingulate System, the Temporal Lobes are reset for balance.

While most treatment approaches to addiction include 12 step programs, rehabs, and now sober living houses, Grey Matters International, Inc. provides a wildly successful alternative to traditional models of addiction treatment----that keeps the brain in mind. That is, talking to the conscious brain while the primal brain is deciding things even before you are consciously aware? Well, that is the problem to solve in addiction. We have the solution utilizing a new cutting edge neuroscience-centered brain rebalancing system. Contact kevin@kevinflemingphd.com or call 877-606-6161.

Addictions are stressful, frustrating, and anxiety provoking. They lead you to behave in ways that, even as you are doing it, you know are not ultimately going to benefit you. So, if you don't want to be doing it but still do it, what's going on? Well, addictions are a confused, and often harmful, way of coping with a stressful, frustrating, or painful situation. The only problem is, aside from temporarily numbing and soothing you, they don't really solve anything, and they often create problems of their own, making life more stressful and thus increasing your need for the coping strategy all over again. Our program will teach you to simply step free of the struggle completely.

I worked for many years for a retreat centre and I have seen and worked with many addicts. I think that it is essential that someone suffering from an addiction is wanting help and change for themselves. I help the person with an addiction look at what negative core beliefs created the addiction in the first place.There are many types of addictions and although some take the form of alcohol or drugs, the most insidious are the emotional addictions. Understanding the "pay off" for the addiction is an important component for wanting change. It can also be helpful to work with then family members of an addict to help them understand what they can do to help their family member.

I work with most areas of addiction although in cases of serious drug or alcohol addiction I will usually recommend or refer to a specialist or treatment centre to help you deal with that. There are many kinds of addiction from internet addiction to shopping addiction, sexual addiction and hoarding to name a few. Dealing with these issues is a multi faceted. Our upbringing and childhood play a role as does mental health issues and chronic stress and anxiety. Understanding what is behind the need to self medicate and learning to substitute healthier options can be very beneficial in dealing with and overcoming addiction.

Do you wake up in the morning with a feeling of regret and remorse over how many glasses of wine you had, again? Are you struggling with a habit that you thought was temporary and now you find you can't walk away from. The realization that you may be struggling with an addiction may gradually unfold or a loved one may bring it to your attention. Often addiction arises from a need to 'take oneself away' from the rough spots on life or it may be a habit out of control. Whatever the background, together we will look at what has contributed to your desire for you habit, what is reinforcing it and get you back in the drivers seat of your life.

In V3W 0N4 - Nearby to Anmore.

The word addiction can be a very scary word for many of us. I believe most of us struggle with some kind of need to self soothe or what is called having an addiction or distraction. We will look at the roots of these needs to distract or self soothe and move past them. At the root of an addiction need are only a few issues. These are often shame, guilt, or fear of abandonment. It is hard to put your finger on which one of these is at the root of an addictive need but I believe all of us struggle to some degree with one of these issues.

Addiction to pornography creates challenges for the person suffering from this concern; it also negatively affects and is debilitating for a person's romantic (and other) relationships. You may need help if you - spend excessive time searching for pornographic imagery. - cannot stop yourself from looking at pornographic material. - experience negative consequences related to your compulsive use of pornography. - feel anxiety over your partner complaining that you would rather fantasize over other images than spend time sexually with him/her. I can help you overcome these challenges so that you can have a nurturing life with yourself and your partner.

Registered Clinical Counsellor (Cand.)

In V3A 4G4 - Nearby to Anmore.

Addiction is a symptom and often a way of coping with trauma, developmental trauma or other metal health issues. I use a compassionate inquiry lens to help you understand why your addictive behaviour makes sense. I use motivational interviewing, and draw on the wisdom of 12 step models and SMART and REFUGE recovery. I will work with you to help you understand the consequences of your addiction and help you build a life of meaning and purpose where the compulsive need to use disappears. It is not as simple as just stopping the substance or the behaviour. I will help you find healthy ways of coping and dealing with the shame and secrecy of addiction and help you carve a path towards freedom.

Erica Collyer Beauchamp, MEd RCC

Registered Clinical Counsellor

In V6Z 2R4 - Nearby to Anmore.

I've worked in Addiction for many years at treatment centres and in corrections. I'm well versed in the 12-steps approach and will apply this approach only when a client is interested and open to this. The 12-steps approach is not for everyone and so I also provide alternative ways to overcome or reduce one's addiction. Treatment of addiction starts with identifying one's triggers and then goes into alternative coping strategies that are proven to be effective. Time is also spent on examining the source of one's addiction so that change can happen more deeply. I view addiction as a symptom of a larger problem and believe if we mend the larger problem, the addiction will decrease.

Have you ever had fresh baking in the house that were saving for Christmas or some other celebration? You had to stop yourself from eating it. How it called your name while you were watching TV, or sent visions of sugar plums dancing in your head while you were hungry cooking dinner? Well that is a small snap shot of the feeling of addiction. Having such a strong compelling desire to experience the rewarding outcome, regardless of how short-lived it might be. Well not all compulsions ( or addictions) are only as dangerous and life changing as a 5 lb weight gain encountered by January 2. Some addictions can own us to the point that there is nothing left of who we really are, or were.

Canadian Certified Counsellor

In V3H 4G7 - Nearby to Anmore.

There are many forms of addiction (ie., drug, alcohol, work, food, gambling, exercise, work). Many people find self help groups that follow the 12 step program helpful. Other people like to take a more personal form of support around their addiction issues. In that case, individual counselling can be helpful. The counselling I provide for clients with addiction issues is to help them set specific reachable goals. Coming to regular counselling appointments seem to help clients set up a personal accountability tool for themselves. Reaching goals can be celebrated and setbacks examined to determine how to move forward again with success.

There is no magic bullet to treating addictions. Many addictions stem from a trifecta of circumstances: (1) a biological / chemical dependance (eg. alcohol leads to chemical changes how our brain and body's nervous system functions and communicates) , (2) a cognitive dependance (I deserve a drink at the end of the day, it helps me relax), and (3) a behavioural (eg. having a drink at a social event is normal, or helps me loosen up). Often addiction is a (not so) perfect storm of these three issues. The good news is that the Cognitive and Behavioural components are quite easy to begin to address; and, in turn, the biological / chemical component is also adjusted.
