Hi, I’m Emma Murphy, the Founder and Clinical Director of Eating Freely.
Eating Freely is a comprehensive program that I have developed over 10 years of working with women and men who struggle with food, weight and their body image.
So many of my clients were caught in a cycle of Diet / Crash / Binge / Guilt / Diet – which never achieved the permanent results they so desperately wanted – to feel comfortable in their own skin.
For 10 years I worked in private practice with clients on all parts of the disordered eating spectrum – from a 5.5 stone client with anorexia who refused to go to inpatient treatment to a morbidly obese client who had two-thirds of her stomach removed before she came to counselling, and everything in between.
Out of this experience I developed Eating Freely, a program specifically for emotional and binge eating - which is by far the most common form of disordered eating. Did you know that up to 30% of adults seeking weight loss solutions are actually struggling with Binge Eating Disorder? to fully resolve a long standing struggle with food and weight, you need to get to the heart of the problem and that is not food, it is feelings.
When you don't know what you don't know, or your training has told you to avoid the past and only focus on the present/future, you cannot and will not resolve binge eating disorder in your clients seeking weight loss support. You may not even realise that binge eating disorder IS the problem!
I do not believe in a firm line between therapy and coaching - therapists can always benefit from having coaching skills in their tool box, and coaches will see far better outcomes with therapy-led skills blended into their programs.
I am also passionate about delivering real value and a measurable return on investment in any training. Like you, I've spend thousands of dollars on my personal and professional development, with very mixed results! Our mission is to become a world leader in delivering the highest standards of advanced training for coaches and therapists, in a practical applicable way, so you are confident you will see the return on your investment in new clients and higher fees.
