We do this by training qualified health professionals to use our Eating Freely™ program through our CE Approved, online training program and supporting them as Licensed Eating Freely™ Practitioners to easily grow their practice and reputation as a specialist in an underserved and high demand area – Emotional Eating & Binge Eating Disorder.
LET ME ASK YOU:
What’s Your "Big Why?”
Why did you train to become a Health & Nutrition Coach?
Why did you walk away from a salaried job to do this work?
Why did you spend time away from your family whilst you studied, and learned, and spent time online missing out on family fun?
Because you are passionate about making a difference to people’s lives, through better health and life balance.
BUT it is not easy to build a practice, is it?
Did you realise all the ‘other stuff’ you would need to learn about – marketing, accounts, cashflow?
Did you underestimate how much time (and money!) you would spend trying to find clients to start with? Then a regular enough flow of clients to pay you?
And here’s the big one – did you realise that your initial training in health coaching was only the very start of your learning journey? That ongoing learning about many different health issues would be key to fully supporting a range of clients?
Foundation training in any health discipline is only the start. Doctors go on to specialise in heart, brain, orthopedic. Therapists specialise in anxiety, depression, trauma. Health & Nutrition Coaches are no different, it takes time, money and dedication to continue growing and learning what you are truly passionate about – often through trial and error with clients!

Our Practitioners say...
“Honestly, I’m delighted I’ve done this training. I thoroughly enjoyed it. I very quickly started working with two eating freely clients in my private practice straight after the training.
I notice in myself I really look forward to the sessions, I really love delivering the program. It’s wonderful to see clients ‘ah ha’ moments and their progressions.
I’d say it’s the best piece of post graduate training I’ve completed. It’s not a training that you complete and it’s over. You actively use the content afterwards and get maximum benefit from your investment.”
Aisling Piercy, Psychotherapist, Ireland
“I’m the founder of the mind•body•food•pain center, where we focus on the relationships between mental health, nutrition, gut health, and chronic pain, to develop and apply tools that empower you to take care of your own health, from all aspects. The Eating Freely program fits very well within this paradigm, and that is why I was happy to become a Licensed Eating Freely Practitioner.
Dr. Elaine Barretto, NBC-HWC, Singapore
As a Health & Nutrition Coach...
you can choose to grow your practice in one of two ways:
Doing ‘the grind’ – spending precious time on social media, posting and sharing content, buying other people’s content and coaching templates and hoping you get enough engagement to win clients.
In other words, play the numbers game, among all the online noise of others doing exactly the same thing.
Or you can be smart, like Aisling & Elaine by becoming a Licensed Eating Freely Practitioner and growing your practice and income with our full support!
I've done all the hard work, so you don't have to!
Hi, I’m Emma Murphy
I’m a Psychotherapist specialising in disordered eating since 2009.
I’ve spent the past 12 years developing the Eating Freely Program by working with hundreds of clients – in person, online, 1-1 and in groups. I know what they need and I know what works for them.
The Eating Freely Program is now being clinically validated by Trinity College Dublin – there is no higher validation than clinical research.
I’ve spent the past five years training therapists and health coaches just like you. Our training is CE / CPD approved internationally by coaching, therapy and nutritional therapy member organisations.
Out of this experience and with the help of my small, dedicated team we’ve developed the most comprehensive, Done For You framework you can imagine:
CE / CPD approved specialist training in effectively resolving emotional eating & binge eating disorder.
A Done For You specialist program you can offer clients as a package from 3-6 months duration, depending on their needs.
Significant value add for your Eating Freely clients – lifetime access to an online program, a Mindful Eating Journal and custom recorded meditations for changing their relationship from food at the deepest unconscious level.
Marketing materials including a free 1 hour webinar, a paid 1 day workshop, listing on our practitioner directory, downloadable templates and assets for website, print and social.
Ongoing professional and peer support in our vibrant international community!
It’s really simple. You can choose to re-invent the wheel by learning it all yourself over 8-10 years, or you can join my community of passionate professionals who are doing it the smart way – leveraging MY 12 years of grind to easily grow their practices as a Licensed Eating Freely Practitioner!
Why join Us?
I’m so glad you are here.
The Eating Freely™ Program evolved out of my 12 years experience of working as a Psychotherapist in private practice, specialising in Disordered Eating.
There has always been high demand for this specialist support, and when I began to get overwhelmed and burned out from the amount of clients seeking my specialist support, I knew it was time to train other professionals to also do what I was doing – initially to give myself some referral options when my waiting list grew too long!
However, once I began training others, the word spread and more professionals wanted to do the training – there is a significant lack of professional training in all areas of disordered eating for professionals!
I have since delivered workshops and training to many hundreds of practitioners both here in Ireland and internationally, and presented at conferences from here to Australia on the specialist topic of disordered eating.
My team and I are dedicated to ensuring we deliver the highest quality, accredited, evidence-based training to Coaches and Therapists, AND that you can then take that training and apply it immediately to your client work – getting that all important tangible return on your investment.
HEAR FROM SOME OF OUR NETWORK MEMBERS
Emma has used her vast knowledge and experience of working with clients to produce a well tested and systematic approach to tackling emotional eating and binge eating disorder.
When the client first enters the program there are a range of easy to use and well thought out practical and cognitive tools to help get their eating behaviours back on track. Each of the early sessions has a particular area to focus on, which I have found really helps me as the therapist to address the client's relationship with food in a very logical and orderly way.
Explanatory and educational videos are presented online for the client to back up all the information given by the practitioner in the sessions, and they have lifetime access to this online material so they are supported both between sessions and once you finish working with them.
The clients that I have worked with so far have all reported finding the tools simple to use but also extremely helpful and effective. Once the client has begun to stabilise their eating patterns then the practitioner can begin to explore more of the deeper underlying issues in more detail... Addressing trauma, family dynamics, unmet needs, inner child work, and so on. There is a strong focus within the program on self-love, self-care, and on building self-esteem, and the program also supplies guided meditations to the practitioner to assist with this.
Clients are constantly encouraged throughout the program to focus on finding healthier ways to meet the emotional needs that their binge eating previously served to conceal.
I would highly recommend the Eating Freely training to any practitioner looking for a tried and tested approach to working with clients with emotional eating, and I am very happy to be part of the Eating Freely team.“ Louise George, Psychotherapist & Yoga Instructor, Cork
Before I found Eating Freely, I could see that many of the physical symptoms people were experiencing were due to some form of inner conflict, but they were focusing on controlling what they were eating in an attempt to fix or even avoid all this discomfort.
The Eating Freely program allows you to work with your clients to build a solid and safe relationship with what they eat. Even that one step creates a huge shift in behaviour for my clients now. However this program is so expertly created that it then moves into a phase of drawing awareness to the behaviours that stem from the past but impact hugely on the current day binging or emotional eating behaviours, and those inner conflicts that are sabotaging all efforts to be fit, slim or healthy.
As a Practitioner this is where we see our work come to life. As people begin to realise that they have a choice to shape their future going forward, their motivation and commitment to the real work they need to do just grows and grows.
The final part of the program really builds your client towards self-responsibility for their actions so that they never have to look at a diet plan again. It is with complete pride that I see clients grow their tools and resources for life so they don’t fall prey to another false promise of the weight loss industry.
On a personal level, the support I have received has been immense. The team are always at the other end of the phone to answer any questions I have. Private practice can be lonely to work in, but the Eating Freely network 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 program, 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. Denise Wogan, Nutritional Therapist & Coach
