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.

Traditional eating disorder treatments place the problem within the person. Using a Feminist and Narrative approach, I believe in unpacking people's experiences and stories. When a full picture of the problem is created, we can then understand the conditions of how the eating disorder came to be. Through a non-judgemental and non-blaming approach, it is my job to create an environment where clients can make sense of their struggles. Goals and treatment are negotiated with clients and are collaborative.

As an experienced therapist in the area of eating disorders, I have found that often the greatest healing occurs through re-connectiong with the body, developing a trusting and loving relationship with it, and discovering its wisdom. When one begins to trust that that far from being one's enemy, the body is one's constant friend and guide, one's whole experience of self can be transformed. One lives from one's own core rather than focusing on food, body image, and others' evaluations, and therefore one becomes more confident and life becomes richer and freer.

Eating disorders are an unhealthy pattern, used by a healthy individual, to deal with an issue. Together we explore what the issue is about. We don't talk about food a lot, but about what lies beneath. In most cases the person has difficulties of emotional regulation, which are then transferred on the corporal level. Once the client becomes aware of that, we slowly unwrap the issue and the feelings involved.

I work with clients dealing with disordered eating by helping them first identify their individual triggers, habits, thought patterns, flawed coping strategies, body image issues, and belief systems. Most people who have an eating disorder developed this as a means to cope with bigger issues in their lives such as poor self-esteem, trauma, depression, anxiety, or other significantly painful events. I work with clients to help them gain insight into the source of their disordered eating, to develop awareness around their thoughts, and to create change through teaching healthy coping strategies and processing of the source of their pain.

If you struggle with binge eating I can assist you to develop a healthier relationship with food. I view binge eating as an addiction to food and can help you learn how to identify your triggers, deal with cravings, and manage distressing feelings that you may be supressing with food. I can also teach you ways of soothing and coping with the emotions or situations that may be stimulating your binge eating.

Eating disorders are a serious illness that cause destruction to a person’s food intake behaviors. They are characterized by emaciation, restricted eating, unhealthy body weight, fear of weight gain, and distorted body image. They may be defined as food addiction, anorexia, binge eating or bulimia. At Valiant Recovery, we recognize that eating disorders and addiction can occur simultaneously. We address eating disorders by providing adequate nutrition, promoting a healthy lifestyle, offering group and individual psychotherapy, and connecting clients to medical care and nutritional counseling.

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.

Eating disorders can be life-threatening, or they can become so chronic over time that it feels as though yours will be with you for the rest of your life. Worse, is the shame you're likely experiencing about your eating disorder. I believe the shame aspect of this disease is the worst part because it causes the individual to feel horrible about who they are. All they are. Sufferers literally see themselves as an eating disorder, and not much else. What do you do? Come speak with me. I know all about them. I had one myself, and I've had years of experience working with clients who've suffered from them, too. Let's look at the behavior but, more importantly, at what it's aiming to solve.

I have worked with many clients who have eating disorders. My clients have been helped a great deal by understanding what food represents for them. Often it is the form that they have chosen to express their unconscious self hatred and loathing. I help clients uncover the purpose for their eating disorder. It is usually not about the food. It is about how they feel when they have used food in a punitive manner. My clients learn to view food from a different perspective that is more practical and not self punishing. As my clients gain appreciation and understanding for themselves, the need to do self harm diminishes.

Eating disorders are multifaceted and complex. Although food plays a central role in eating disorders, eating disorders are rarely about the food. For many people struggling with disordered eating, the effects are pervasive and devastating. The disordered eating may result in personal isolation, embarrassment, shame, disgust and most of all a sense of apprehension about the ability to regain one’s health. I will collaborate with you or your loved one to set in motion a plan that will begin rebuilding the road to recovery. Building on a desire, motivation or readiness to change are key elements in disordered eating psychotherapy. Recovery is possible!
