"Hi, I'm Emma"

Welcome to Eating Disorder Recovery

 

Hi there, and welcome to our website.  You are here because there’s a problem between you and food, or you and your weight, or you and your body image – or you and all of them!

It is incredibly difficult to find the right path to contentment with your body and freedom from guilt when it comes to food.  There is SO MUCH information out there! Eat this, don’t eat that, take this supplement, follow this regime, download this app….. it is no wonder you are overwhelmed and stuck in the same place of “Today I’m going to eat healthily and stick to it until I’ve lost ‘the weight’ “, which quickly moves to “ah crap – I’ve eaten a muffin….. I’ll start again tomorrow...” and then the wheels fall off the bus as we say here.

If this is a snapshot of your average Monday, then you are in the right place.  Whatever you are ready for in terms of help and support, we have it here.

SO, if you are truly tired of the merry-go-round you’ve been on and know in your heart of hearts that what you keep doing, over and over again, is NOT WORKING;

If you want 2017 to be the year you can really get your life back on track – because of course it has been on hold, hasn’t it? Waiting “until…..”  - I lose weight/get healthy/feel better about myself;

If you are Ready, Willing and Able to make REAL changes in how you think about food, how you eat, and how you nourish yourself – physically and emotionally;

Then read on.

I’m Emma Murphy, and for the past eight years I’ve worked almost exclusively with adults who struggle with Food, Body Image and/or Disordered Eating.  This is my area of speciality, and I am absolutely passionate about helping people like YOU to rediscover their mojo, and let go all of the guilt and frustration you feel when it comes to food and your body shape/size.  I’ve developed several online programs too – for people who cannot come to see me here in Ireland, and I work remotely online too – my motto is ‘Start from where YOU are’ – and I try to facilitate that with my range of supports.

Professionally I’m an Accredited, experienced Psychotherapist with advanced specialist training in Eating Disorders, and I’ve won an award for my online programs - so you can be confident that you are in a safe, professional pair of hands.  But more importantly, I don’t care how embarrassing you think your story or your behaviour is, I’ve heard it all dozens of times over and I’m really only interested in helping you let go of all that, and freeing yourself up to get on with ENJOYING your life again.

NOT READY TO TALK?

If you want help but you are not yet sure you could really open up to a Therapist or even participate in an online group, then you can choose from two self-directed online programs on our Online Programs page.  You work through them at your own pace in the comfort of your own home, but I am always available by email to provide additional support if you get stuck or have questions.

Mindfulness for Emotional Eating 4 Session Program

CBT for Binge Eating and Bulimia 12 Session Program

READY TO JOIN A LIVE GROUP PROGRAM?

In October 2017 I start two 8 Week Group Programs - Eating Freely.  As well as weekly live online group sessions with me, you’ll be in our private facebook group which is only open to participants on my live programs – this is where you’ll get the additional support from me and others between our weekly sessions.

I do not believe that change takes years, I believe that if you are Ready, Willing and Able to commit to making different choices and challenge all your old, unhelpful beliefs and behaviours, this program will absolutely be a turning point for you.  It simply cannot fail to move you 360° in your thinking, behaviours and feelings about food and your body. What you DO with the information you’ll learn is of course down to you.

Hi Emma, I hope you are keeping well. I just wanted to drop you a quick line as I'm currently in sunny Spain, in a bikini, at 27 weeks pregnant...and couldn't be happier. Much of that happiness I owe to you. I love being pregnant and watching my tummy grow. I can't wait to be a mum ! Thanks for being such a big part of my journey thus far, I am very grateful for you turning on the light.
Yours in happiness.
