Key Worker Counselling

You can make peace with food ......... I help people improve their relationship with food to remove anxiety, guilt, chaos and obsession that are connected to unhealthy eating patterns. I work with emotional eating, loss of control eating, yo-yo dieting, body image, chaotic eating patterns.

• Do you feel guilty about eating certain foods and/or the amount of food you eat?
• Do you eat in secret to cope with your emotions?
• Have you started a new diet but are finding yourself more anxious and depressed?
• Are you afraid of loosing control around food ?

If you answered YES to any of these questions you are not alone. I hear you and help available. Get in touch.

People who have reached out for support experienced the following:
• decreased stress
• a sense of calm around food
• increased self-esteem,
• self-acceptance
• more energy
• better relationships.

HOW I WORK
I help people listen and connect to their body's wisdom and begin their journey into making peace with food. This is a process and when people have complex emotional attachments and beliefs around food this requires further exploration. This is where my training and experience can help. However you are in charge of your journey. I will facilitate the therapeutic journey by offering a listening ear, acceptance, non-judgement and empathy. I have witnessed first hand that when someone experiences these therapeutic conditions healing takes place. You will have a space to explore the dynamics of your relationship with food, identify your struggles and decide how you want to move forward. I will help you find tools to manage your emotions as well as create new ways of relating to food that are better more congruent to who you are both emotionally and biologically.

Don't struggle alone. Help is only one click away. Get in touch.

WHAT TO EXPECT IN A FIRST SESSION
The first session is an opportunity for you to tell me about you and for us both to decide how we are going to work together. It also involves filling in some paperwork in the first 5 minutes. The session lasts 50 minutes and I see clients weekly or fortnightly. I usually advise 6 sessions to start with but if you feel that you need less or more we can discuss what best suits you.

If you would like to book a no obligation 15 minute phone chat, get in touch.

Please note:
* If there is no immediate answer when you call it is possible I am in a session. Please leave me a message and I will return your call as soon as possible. If you prefer you can also email or text for further details or to arrange a call back time.

***PERFIL EM PORTUGUÊS (Portuguese Profile)***

O meu nome é Jael. Eu sou uma Counsellor (terapeuta) acreditada pela Associação Nacional de Counselling (NCS) e ofereço sessões de terapia em Inglês e Português. Eu tenho interesse particular em ajudar as pessoas a cuidar da sua saúde mental e emocional. A minha abordagem de trabalho é centrada na individualidade de cada pessoa e o meu foco está em não julgar mas usar de empatia. Eu acredito que quando a pessoa tem experiência directa das condições terapêuticas surge a oportunidade de processar emoções, curar certas mágoas e a capacidade de fazer mudanças que vão promover uma melhoria no seu bem estar. Nos últimos 2 anos tenho me especializado em trabalhar com pessoas que sofrem de compulsões alimentares mas também tenho experiência em trabalhar com ansiedade, luto e dificuldades nos relacionamentos.
Antes de me tornar uma terapeuta trabalhei 10 anos para o NHS como Auxiliar de Enfermagem e o último departamento em que trabalhei foi na Maternidade.

O que é Counselling?
Counselling é uma palavra de origem inglesa, que significa “aconselhamento”. Este tipo de terapia envolve um processo de interacção entre duas pessoas (o profissional e o cliente) com o objetivo de ajudar a pessoa a fazer escolhas, processar traumas, e descobrir novas técnicas para manejar as suas dificuldades e ter uma saúde mental melhor.
O counselling parte do princípio que cada pessoa tem dentro de si os recursos necessários para a resolução dos seus problemas e ajuda as pessoas a identificar esses recursos dentro de si. A terapia em si focaliza-se em primeiro lugar na pessoa em vez de no problema, havendo uma valorização do relacionamento humano.

Se estiver a contemplar trabalhar comigo sinta-se á vontade para me contactar. Eu ofereço uma breve consulta de 15 minutos grátis aonde posso responder a qualquer pergunta que tenha e determinar se este serviço é adequado para si.
