All of us find ways to "take the edge off" of difficult feelings. Loneliness, anxiety, and stress can make us feel scared and out of control. We all search for comfort in these painful times. From infancy, being cared for and cared about has often meant being fed. Ideally, we are not only fed with food, but emotionally attended to as well. But for some of us, food has always been paired with feeling soothed and comforted. It makes sense that we would turn to food to calm ourselves even now. But it doesn't have to be this way. Together we can get to the heart of what hurts, and learn other ways to feel safe and comforted. It is possible to feel full, even when your stomach is empty.

Anorexia bulimia or obesity depicts the spectrum of problems associated with food and body image. Anxiety and depression can be at the root of the problem, but obsessive-compulsive disorder and an impulse to control ones environment can also play a part. In other words, an eating disorder is often a symptom of a much deeper issue and often involves an enabler. Eating disorders can be fatal as the person with the problem slowly becomes malnourished or dehydrated. This makes getting counseling essential in order to save a life.

My approach to eating disorders is multidimensional. Eating disorder issues vary depending on the individual but all have common threads such as control issues and addictive symptomology. I work with each client and appropriate professionals to support the elimination of disordered eating. There is a great deal of literature on eating disorders and I have found no two clients suffering from eating disorders the same in terms of history and family dynamics. There are certainly commonalities but each client deserves an individualized plan.

A safe place to talk about intense emotions for those diagnosed with an eating disorder can be of benefit as an individual uncovers the root motivations which might be linked with eating disorders. Several unresolved emotions and issues often are found at the core of eating problems, often beginning in early adolesence. Learning how to express feelings such as anger, sadness, guilt, and fear can be a freeing experience with a professional therapist.

Eating disorders is a very complicated and serious issue which mainly occurs with woman but a growing number of men are also confronting this. We are still learning as much as we can about eating disorders and the opportunities to effectively treat and overcome this challenge. Caring psychotherapy and counseling along with behavior and cognitive therapies are currently the effective approach to reversing and managing eating disorders. It has been discovered that personal body imaging and family as well as social group messages around food, body size and body image have made for pivotal influences in the emotional trauma around food and eating. Transformation is successful with counseling.

Eating disorders are most often a reaction to other life events. Often clients feel like life is so chaotic that eating habits are the only aspect of life that they can control. Eating disorders are also often linked to anxiety and low self-esteem. In order to treat eating disorders, I would help clients to build a more positive body image, create and implement a healthy eating plan, and build support in the family system.

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.

I have a history of working with compulsive dieters and compulsive overeaters. I work with clients to understand the underlying needs for the food and/or for the weight, while supporting clients' abilities to take care of themselves in profound ways, whether physically, spiritually, emotionally, or mentally. Clients find ways to create more nourishing and harmonious relationships with themselves as well as with food.
