Can you relate?
"I eat too much too late at night. I know I shouldn’t and still do it. Over and over again. My whole life, since I can remember."
"I feel like most of the time I'm scared that I'm not good enough. I'm literally obsessed with others opinions of me. For me it's because I have control issues."
"I can't stop snacking day and night, especially night. I'm just tired of being alone all the time."
"Every time I binge it makes me feel like a failure and I end up self-sabotaging my weight loss journey."
"I have gone so far the other way. I don't reach out to other people, because I get tired of the scenarios that I make up in my head. Can't be hurt if I don't engage with others."
" I struggle with feeling my feelings, especially overwhelm and anxiety about things in my life I can’t change and find it easier to numb with food. I’m caught in a vicious cycle."
Emotional or Binge Eating is about far more than food, it's about feelings.
It is often linked back to an old trauma or difficult experience - when you learned to eat as a way of self-soothing. It became your friend, your go-to.
But now, that experience is long past, and yet you are still eating in response to your feelings.
It affects your mood, your sleep, your energy levels.
It affects your relationships.
It affects your work, your family, and how you feel about yourself.
This is why another diet or weight loss program will never work. It's starting from the wrong place.
Know what else doesn't work? Willpower. Because it's not you, it's actually your brain that's the problem!
Know what one of the biggest challenges is? Your personality! Yup - being an 'all or nothing' thinker. Being a 'People Pleaser'. Listening to that constant negative voice in your head. Being rubbish at self-care.
Woman. Man. Bigger body. 'Normal' body. Had a trauma. Didn't have a trauma. It doesn't matter.
We get binge eating disorder. We know it inside out and upside down. And we can help you.

I'm Emma Murphy.
I’m Emma, and I have worked with many hundreds of clients for over 12 years as a Psychotherapist specialist in disordered eating.
Over this time I developed a structured, evidence based way of working with clients that really does offer them true freedom around food – forever.
It is my mission to ensure anyone, anywhere can get the specialist support they need to finally overcome their long standing battle with food, their weight and their body image.
The Eating Freely Program is available as an online program, or working 1:1 with one of our qualified Health Professionals who have taken further specialist training with us to become a Licensed Eating Freely Practitioner.
So you can get the help you need no matter where you are, no matter how long you’ve been struggling, and with NO judgment, no dieting, and no shame.
We’ll give you specialist support with kindness, no judgement and true compassion.
The Eating Freely™ Program
combines four pillars of support:
CBT or Cognitive Behaviour Therapy – tools to help reduce binge eating episodes immediately;
Nutrition and Gut Rehabilitation – over time, binge eating impacts your gut, which impacts your hormones, your sleep, your energy and your physical health. We need to reverse this!
Neuroscience – because a lot of what happens is in ‘Autopilot’ and triggered at an unconscious level. Your brain is only trying to keep you safe, but the Automatic Habits it has on file are working against you, not for you!
Mindfulness and Self-Compassion – because how helpful is that Inner Critical Voice, really?
The Eating Freely™ Program is unique. We separate food from feelings, and the past from the present, supporting clients to finally find true freedom around food, forever.
You can choose to work through an online program at your own pace, with additional personalised support.
We have Licensed Eating Freely™ Practitioners all around the world, most of whom also work online. You can choose the practitioner you want to work with from our directory.
HEAR FROM SOME OF OUR specialist practitioners
- and their clients!
Although I knew there were issues from my past that I needed to deal with but had been avoiding, I did not understand or connect how deeply they were connected to my relationship with food and my own self-care.
My therapist Sue and the nutritionist Linn have been so amazing to work with. Despite the distance – I live in South Africa and worked entirely online with them - I have always felt supported and cared for. They were on the journey with me and they celebrated with me and reminded me to self-care when I couldn't remember this for myself.
Notes for someone considering this programme: If you find yourself in a similar place of really no way out, above all, this program offers hope for both you and I. We need to put in the work – it is not a free ride, and it’s tough and you will cry …sometimes, but it is so worth it in the end. Friends – if I can help just one person with this testimonial – then it will have been worth it. Learning to care for myself has been ridiculously difficult but every day I am 1% better than the day before. Sending kindness and courage your way! Melanie xx
Clients love the structure of the program, they can track their progress on a weekly basis by doing their homework and exercises and reviewing them in session with me. Usually, by week five, clients have a clear idea of the reasons why they binge and no longer feel powerless, they know they are building the necessary skills to tackle their issues.
It is very rewarding for me to witness clients creating a healthier relationship with food and with themselves by the end of the program. In terms of the fee I paid for the training, I considered it an investment in my professional growth and it paid itself back by working with my first two clients. I would not have the knowledge and the skills to help clients struggling with emotional eating without the skills that this training provided me with and I would certainly refer those clients if I did not have the appropriate training.
I now understand how much of this area I did not know about or truly understand—it IS a specialist area, and a very rewarding area to work in."
This program allows you to work on the food, to build a solid and safe relationship for someone with what they eat. Even that one step creates a huge shift in behavior for my clients now. However, this program is so expertly created that it then moves into a phase of drawing awareness to the behaviors that stem from the past but impact hugely on the current day bingeing or emotional eating behaviors, those inner conflicts that are sabotaging all efforts to be fit, slim or healthy.
On a personal level, the support I have received has been immense. The Eating Freely team are always at the other end of the phone to answer any questions I have. Coaching/NT are all industries that can be lonely to work in, but this group not only offers professional advice but mentoring and connection with like minded people.
I was only reflecting to Emma the other day that in joining this programme, I now get to do more of what I love doing. In fact I would say that my business is now 5 years ahead of where I thought it would be, which is only testament to the quality of this Program. It works. And for anyone thinking about their next step in the Wellness field then look no further, here it is.
I'm not sure I have the words to describe the turnround in my attitude to food, my body, self-compassion. The program has had consequences on my whole outlook that I never could have imagined. I have ended (won!) a decades long battle with weight and food, and I am so much more content with life in general.
All the best, and thanks again for the work you and your team are doing — you're making a remarkable, lasting difference to people's lives."
