Sadly, addiction is more than a surface issue. It’s any habit that controls you - your own healthy perspective or behaviour compromised. It can be: smoking, drinking, drugs, gambling, gaming, shopping, fetishes, cutting, porn, unsafe sex, unhealthy eating, self negating, bulimia, compulsive message checking, even too much time online. Elimination or control of such a habit is only a partial answer. There’s more going on. What led you to develop the addiction in the first place? In therapy a key issue I will help you look into is what you can do instead. You can realize why you came to lean on an unhealthy behaviour, then learn to Mindfully notice other options you have in the moment.

In M5S 2C3 - Nearby to Ajax.

Addiction can be a real challenge to beat - and most often my patients have tried everything from cold turkey to AA. There's a new way of thinking about addiction that can inform your treatment with powerful outcomes. Recent research out of Simon Fraser University in Vancouver BC Canada has us approaching treatment and sobriety in a more comprehensive way that is well beyond just AA or those white knuckle approaches. Let's sit down and talk. If you are sick and tired of being sick and tired, it is time for change - and let's work together to see if this new approach can finally make the difference for you. 1-800-699-3396

We can get adicted to anything that makes us feel good! Especially living in an "addictively oriented" society, it is easy for anyone to become addicted to a variety of things, like substances, relationships, processes, etc. I help people understand the process of addictions, and together we can work to overcome both the addiction itself, as well as learning to deal with the usually very human desires which are feeding it. The goal is to be able to life with, or through, the good and the bad without getting stuck in unhelpful ways of coping with life's challenges.

Addictions are a form of self-medication or self-soothing. When we are stressed or upset about something, we just want to 'feel good.' Addictions are the result of relying for too long on some substance or behavior that 'feels good' - and then turns into a pattern of behavior, or an addiction. The process of therapy for addictions, whether substances, internet porn or other problem behavior that has become an addiction, involves becoming aware of of the 'dis-ease' that resulted in the development of the addiction, and addressing that through your counseling.

In M4K 3K8 - Nearby to Ajax.

I work with people with addictions. Most of us are addicted to something. It's natural to want to feel good. Most addictions start from a place of pain -- an uncomfortable feeling, such as shame, or not feeling good about who we are. While whatever we're addicted to provides some relief, it doesn't last long, and we are once again back into a cycle of shame, relief, denial, etc. We have a well-developed pattern around our addictions. Together we will explore breaking your patterns as a necessary step in breaking the addiction, and look at how your core beliefs are impacting your view of yourself, and your relationship with others.

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.

Addiction is extremely complicated, painful and overpowering. You're a great person! One who wishes to have a 'normal life'. But it's not happen. You're trapped, unable to break the chains.

Psychotherapist

In M4C 1T3 - Nearby to Ajax.

I have had extensive experience working in front-line settings such as Vancouver’s Downtown East Side in the addictions field and have become highly familiar working with both abstinence-based and harm-reduction approaches to addiction and concurrent mental health concerns. It’s important to me that my approach is client-centred, meaning that I work from the individual client’s goals and degree of readiness. My therapeutic approach integrates mindfulness, CBT, the Stages of Change Model, and trauma counselling. I also help clients explore the underlying factors contributing to the addictive behaviours and teach alternative coping strategies in order to promote lasting change.
