I have years of experience working with those suffering from addictions. Addictions can be very challenging to overcome and relapse can be common. Learning to identify the underlying patterns and reasons why one may be experiencing this can help to transform the individual and stop the pattern. I approach each person as an individual--unique and whole, deserving to be treated as more than just a condition.

We used to think of addictions as restricted to alcohol, or drugs. We now know that addictions are far more expansive including overeating, stealing, and sex. Many have lived with their addictions for a long time and only seek help when their addictive behavior begins to impact their personal life, their relationships, their health or their work. Anyone battling with addictions works their way round an imaginary clock, from denial, through to acceptance, and toward beginning to explore options for addressing their addiction. Accessing help is about 6’oclock, half way round the clock; and the journey carries on up the other side of the clock toward health and wholeness. Where ever you are on the clock I would be happy to talk and walk with you on your journey toward recovery.

Addictive behaviours may feel like comfort to the vacuum left by aloneness or detachment. The feeling of aloneness can start early. Children require a lot of emotional interaction to develop trust that their needs for support and caring will be met. If they don’t experience positive attachments, they may turn their needs for love and caring into physical cravings, which are easier to fill, and develop relationships with their addictions because they're more in control of them than those they look to for love and attention. I create a therapeutic environment in which individuals can deepen their understanding of their feelings and learn to trust their inner resources to connect with others.

Addictions stem from early experiences. Let's examine what happened in your life that has led you to the place you are. I practice psychotherapy which can help with uncovering the hidden motives behind your addictions and behaviours. From that place of understanding you can move forward to being free of the addiction and live the life you want to live without the burdens you have been carrying.

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.

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.

A person may choose to cope with life issues by engaging in certain behaviours or by using substances. Once they start abusing a substance or repeatedly engaging in certain negative behaviours, this is known as addiction. Addiction is a disease that negatively impacts the individual suffering as well as their family and friends. Therefore, to minimize the damage and to increase the probability of efficiently overcoming the disease comes with early intervention. Using a task-centered approach will help individuals face the reality and causes of their addiction.
