Addiction can come in many forms, from substance abuse, to food addiction, gambling, sexual addiction, internet addiction, spending addictions, workaholism, and many others. The root cause of all addictions is a lack of connection to all aspects of self and others. I can support you to resolve underlying issues that create addiction and to put in place strategies to take back control over your life and wellbeing.

In L4N 5J4 - Nearby to Penetanguishene.

In working with those with addiction difficulties, I want to help the client through the process of accepting the misuse, overuse or indulgence in problem behaviours, and begin a mutual recovery program from where they need to begin. Coping strategies, identifying triggers and high risk situations, and planning for relapse with specific skills training help the client through the stages of change and into long term recovery. Underlying issues that cause mood disregulation, poor coping abilities, and stress are explored. Promoting sense of self, worthiness, and addressing lifestyle changes produce positive results.

James Hollis wrote, "There are no Hells more hellish than addiction, for nothing seems more conclusively our own fault." Yet, addictions tend to serve a purpose- they help us feel free, strong, connected. As distress or discomfort mounts, we indulge in behaviour that is meant to alleviate. Too late we realize that these behaviours are insatiable and come with consequences. The thing that once solved a problem, has now created one. If you are living in that Hell of addiction, there are proven ways to get out. Scientific merit combined with attentive clinical care, I will work beside you, to repair the wounds that addiction has created and that addiction sprouted from.

I view addiction as a biological, psychological and social issue. To address the addiction, we must address the historical pain that caused you to turn to substances or other addictive activities to soothe yourself. Often these include traumatic experiences, poor family relationships, lack of attachment relationships, or even trying to cope with stress. We will develop a safe therapeutic relationship to allow you to explore the challenges you have faced in your life and to allow you to discover your path towards better health on many different levels.

Did you think how to reward and gratify yourself for your efforts, how to disconnect from negative emotions, how to "celebrate good and bad events" in life? Is alcohol. drug, food, or sex your way of pleasing yourself? Addiction is a compulsive engagement as an outcome of obsessive thinking regardless of negative consequences. Addictive behavior is rewarding and reinforcing that is why is causing repetition of action that you believe is "good for you" so you don't have to think clearly. Let's see if we can find the way to feel "high on life"through self-improvements.

Registered Psychotherapist

In L4N 6S7 - Nearby to Penetanguishene.

Addiction can be a difficult and demanding part of a person's life. Client's can feel like there is no escape from this personal affliction, and that their substance of choice is overwhelming their everyday life. Clients who work with me will experience a safe, judgment free environment where the goal will be to focus on your individual strengths outside of the substance abuse, and further work to eliminate the substance from the client's life entirely, one session at a time. Utilizing coping strategies and pinpointing the root causes of the need to use, I will help to get you clean and ensure you are able to stay that way.

We have the solution utilizing a new cutting edge neuroscience-centered brain rebalancing system. Contact kevin@kevinflemingphd.com or call 877-606-6161.

I believe that everyone in our society suffers from addictions of one kind or another. Behind most addictions is a yearning for transcendent experience, something that takes us beyond the pain and chaos of our lives. I think the treatment of addiction involves finding alternative ways of expressing that yearning. It also requires learning strategies for managing addictions. Some people can give up an addiction altogether with some help. Other people, often for reasons beyond their control, really cannot. With addiction therapy, they can learn to accept themselves as they are and they can learn strategies for containing their addictions so they don't destroy their lives.

Sexual addiction can be devastating, shaming and destructive to healthy relationships. Sex addiction counselling can help you to better understand the addiction and to find ways to free yourself from the addiction cycle. We start by exploring how the brain works and how people become addicted. Then we work to provide the support required and the steps needed for change to happen at physical, emotional and behavioural and physiological levels.
