My wife met Felix with my 16 year old son today. My son has had a fear of food after a bout of gastro enteritis at 18 months old. He had an extremely limited food intake, mainly beige foods with no food or vegetables. Before leaving Felix today my son had tried at least 11 or 12 new foods. By the end of the evening he’d tried 17 new foods. I cannot thank Felix enough for his time today. My son has a totally different outlook on food, and is already asking for foods to try and seeking them out himself. Such an amazing transformation, and one that my wife and I have found overwhelming and extremely emotional. I highly recommend Felix, and so does my son. It’s never too late to change.
thank you for taking the time to feedback and delighted to hear of your son's progress. Kind regards
Life changing, overwhelming in a good way, emotional.
My 10 yr old son had a session with Felix after learning he had struggled with ÄRFID for a number of years- and wasn't just a fussy eater. He plays a lot of sport and really wanted to improve his eating habits to improve his health and general quality of life. He did a zoom session as we are based in Australia, and after a 90 minute session was happy to try new foods without the fear he had previously had. This was remarkable and whilst only a week in, he has now tried around 10 new foods without any trouble. I would absolutely recommend Felix as if this continues to work, my sons life will be changed for the better in every way :)
thank you very much for this feedback and delighted to hear of your son's ongoing progress. Keep me posted! Best wishes
Felix is a very talented psychologist who cuts through the unnecessary, and resolves the issue at hand. He is sensitive but not pandering, the perfect balance for problem solving. If you are having doubts, give The Heath Therapies a try. It's unfortunate that, in my experience, there are a lot of people that provide NLP services that do not work. Felix is the real deal.
Thank you very much for your kind feedback. Best regards Felix
After one session, our 16 yr old son was trying new foods. He’d not done this for years. It is early days but he is open to trying things, and while he does not like everything, he is eating things he would have found impossible to try. He has ASD.
thank you so much for this review. Lovely meeting you both and glad to have helped. best wishes
I have been enduring the hardships of ARFID almost all my life, ever since I can remember, with earliest memories since I was three. Had a face to face therapy session with Felix last week. I was nervous with anxiety but also anxious with anticipation. The session was strangely positive, and I am still confused as to how I am able to see, pick and eat foodstuff I had an extreme fear of, or had never even eaten before - including a curry and rice. I also picked up a variety of fruits and ate them. They were good. I was not as anxious around food as I usually am. There were at least 8 varieties of edibles I tried that day and was very proud of myself. I have since gone food shopping that I would have otherwise avoided. I cannot more highly recommend Felix and his therapy to anyone who needs it. It has been extremely beneficial to me and I am very happy that I have taken the step in the 'Right' direction and to have made this change in my life. THANK YOU Felix! and we will be in touch with my progress... 17 items and going strong!!!
sorry just saw this. Thank you so much for taking the time to feedback and delighted to hear of your progress. Best wishes
My session for ARFID was completely life changing, for 19 years my diet has been extremely limited, and I was unable to try any new foods due to the anxiety that caused me. However now, because of my one session this has completely changed. It has been just over a week since my session took place and, in that time, I have tried twenty new foods and felt completely stress free whilst doing so. I even went to a new restaurant with friends and was able to order something I had never tried before, with no alterations to the dish - which was a first for me! I am amazed with the progress I am making everyday, as this was an outcome I could never have imagined for myself. I could not be where I am now without Felix’s help, and I cannot thank him enough!
Great work and thank you for taking the time to review. Keep up the excellent progress. Best wishes
Dr. Economakis is amazing. My daughter has had ARFID all of her 18 years. His approach is unique and successful. Significant changes happened for her on the first day immediately after the session. I highly recommend him.
Saw Felix regarding zoophobia (mostly dogs but other animals too) - during the session I wasn't sure if it would work. He asked me to go to a nearby park to try it out and I did pet a dog but thought that it might have been just a one off since it was a controlled environment. That was a month ago and now I've had time to notice that it did indeed work. I can't believe how much the quality of my life improved - I don't need to cross the street if a dog is heading in my direction anymore, I don't need to be aware of all of the animals around me at all times and most importantly I don't feel that physical fear in my stomach anymore every time a dog is close to me. I only wish I did this sooner.
thank you for your feedback and delighted to hear of your progress. Kind regards Felix
The ARFID therapy was really useful and I wish that I had known about it years ago.
Thank you very much. Most appreciated!
