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.

I know from personal experience how terrifying it is to overcome an addiction, but I truly believe that everyone is capable of change. If you're feeling unsure about taking this step, we can move slowly and work toward the changes you're thinking about making. We will work together to build an individualized treatment plan, and you won't be forced to do anything you don't want to do. There are many different models of recovery, and I don't believe that there's a one size fits all approach. If you're stuck in an addiction and you feel scared and hopeless, I understand how you feel and I can offer you a safe and confidential space to start moving toward recovery.

Whether you are struggling with an addiction such as alcohol or drug abuse, video gaming addiction, shopping addiction, gambling, ecc, most likely life is an emotional roller coaster for you AND the person who loves you. Addiction recovery is not about willpower but about identifying the underlying causes of your addiction OR your enabling behaviour and finding appropriate coping mechanisms to deal with stress and emotional overwhelm in healthy ways. As a certified Addiction Counsellor I specialize in working with LOVED ONES of addicts as well as the individual struggling with addiction using a blend of somatic and cognitive psychotherapy which has proven to be extremely effective.

It's probably safe to say that we all know addiction in some shape or form. Whether food, alcohol, cigarettes, work, money, sex or day-time-television - we all share certain factors that make each of us vulnerable to some form of addiction. Some aspect of ourselves seems to be seeking the fulfillment of some important need. Perhaps a need to - relax, be noticed, connect, wake-up or feel alive. The list can get very interesting. Sadly, we come to learn that the satisfaction of our addictive behaviors is short lived (at least) and harmful (at it's worst) and may actually get in the way of what we truly seek. When we reach this point of realisation, therapeutic support an be greatly beneficial

In V7M 1A4 - Nearby to Lions Bay.

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.

In V6J 1Y9 - Nearby to Lions Bay.

My approach to addiction is multi-faceted and individually focused. Exploring personal history and trauma and grieving losses are often elements, as is reconnecting with the body and its wisdom. In many cases, developing one's spirituality is central to healing. I provide a safe environment for exploring and listening to the range of feelings that have been avoided through the addiction so that reconnection with self is restored and one's deepest longings can be satisfied.

Canadian Certified Counsellor

In V3H 4G7 - Nearby to Lions Bay.

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.
