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.

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.

We view addictions compassionately, as a symptom of unresolved emotional pain or trauma, and offer an alternative to traditional AA/12-step models. Our therapists can support you in the journey towards processing and healing the underlying hurts that are resulting in addictions as a coping strategy. Together, we can build the emotional regulation, distress tolerance and impulse management skills on the inside that can reduce the reliance on addictions on the outside, so that pain isn't so overwhelming. We are trauma-focused and can help you navigate the complex interplay of shame, triggers, anxiety, secrecy, codependency, body sensations, relationship dynamics and relapse patterns.

If we do something repeatedly, that we would rather not do, then we have an addiction. The problem with addictions is that people get hurt. The addicted person may not recognize the seriousness of their situation, but eventually both the addict and their loved ones suffer tremendously in a state of helplessness. Many families have been destroyed from addictive behaviour such as substance addiction (drugs/alcohol), gambling, sexual addictions, gaming/internet addictions. A counsellor can help. Workshops, groups, individual or family counselling can assist in breaking the devastating cycle of addiction. Coping skills and emotional awareness to negotiate compelling urges and compulsive in

Registered Psychotherapist & Canadian Certified Counsellor

Elora, Ontario N0B 1S0 | 519-766-3978

I am able to help with substance, alcohol & process addictions such as shopping, gambling, sex, porn and so on. The benefit to working with me is that I am a recovering addict of 10 years, so I understand how hard it is to ask for help and to try and change. I also understand the complex layers of addiction and the battle to stay clear of it. And I most definitely understand the guilt and shame associated when we are engaged in our addiction and what it does to the people that love us the most. I have years of experience with addictions and mental health issues. I believe in both abstinence and harm reduction as an approach to addictions. Call for a FREE 30 minute consultation today.
