Meet Jael Ribeiro – Binge eating counsellor

Jael Ribeiro

Jael is a registered counsellor who has worked in her private practice for the last 10 years. In the last couple of years she has taken an interest in working with people who struggle with their relationship with food. Her passion for helping people comes from having herself experienced so many diets and realising the impact that they can have on both physical and emotional well-being. For example, we know that dieting can trigger the onset of a disordered relationship with food.

After years of research, she found that the body provides invaluable information and when you listen and connect to it your relationship with food can improve significantly. This is a journey and you don’t need to feel alone. Jael can work with you to reduce the anxiety, guilt, shame, chaos and obsession that are often associated with a troublesome relationship with food.

Counselling is a talking therapy where you can start to make sense of your emotions and feelings around food. Jael can help you to listen and connect to your body’s wisdom and begin your unique journey into making peace with food.

This is a process and when people have complex emotional attachments and beliefs around food it requires further exploration. This is where her training and experience can help. However you are always in charge of your own journey. She will facilitate the therapeutic process by offering acceptance, non-judgment and empathy. She has 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 what best suits you in moving forward. She will help you find tools to manage your emotions as well as create new ways of relating to food that are truer to who you are both emotionally and biologically.

Please note, you need to be a resident in the UK or Europe to work with Jael.
