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 to find out what level of support will suit you best now….


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.

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 stupid or 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.

Regardless of where you are, or what you are ready for now, I can help.

WHERE: The Beacon Hotel, Sandyford, D18 – just off Exit 13 on the M50
DURATION: 10am-4pm
FEE: €125
Having worked almost exclusively with disordered eating clients for nearly 10 years now, I’ve developed several effective, informative and practical levels of group support. This practical workshop will combine CBT (Cognitive Behaviour Therapy), Neuroscience and Mindfulness to give you a great toolbox of resources you can begin using straight away, and continue to build on after our day together.

CBT Tools and Resources give you concrete, usable tools that help you significantly reduce bingeing, emotional eating and overeating episodes;

Neuroscience education will teach you how your brain works, why it can be your worst enemy when trying to change or break bad, unhealthy and unhelpful habits, and how you CAN break free of both your old behaviours, AND dial down that negative, critical voice in your head;

Mindfulness brings you back into the present moment, where you can choose to behave differently, challenge your unhelpful thoughts and learn how to calm yourself and reduce anxiety.

Starts October 2017

If you are finding that this year is slipping by, and real change is still not happening;
If you really want to turn things around before the end of 2017;
If you want to fully enjoy the Festive Season this year for the first time in YEARS – saying yes to events, feeling good in your clothes and most of all feeling GUILT FREE around food….

Then you should sign up for my Group Program – Eating Freely!

I can guarantee that if you take on board what you learn over the course of this group program, you will finish this time Feeling Better, Looking Better, Sleeping Better, with LOADS more energy, and you will have found the TRUE solution to Eating Freely and still losing weight, if there is weight to be lost. It will be slow, the changes you make are lifestyle choices (ie forever, not a quick fix, and not a diet in sight), and any weight loss will be at the rate of no more than 1-1.5lbs per week. The difference is, it will STAY off as long as you keep doing what you learn to do on the program.


Every Monday, you will receive an email containing a recorded lesson, with written exercises to do and downloadable resources to begin using straight away;

During the week you will also have a weekly LIVE group session with me to allow a ‘deep dive’ into the material in the recorded session, and to have generous Q&A time. You can attend a group physically in Dublin, or remotely online. Participants will be split into small groups of max 10 – 2 morning groups and 2 evening groups, so everybody gets to ask their questions and have the full benefit of the live sessions in a smaller group, at a time that suits them best;

You can also access recordings of your own Live Group Sessions so if you miss a session, you can still get the benefit. And if you know you have to miss a session, you can still submit any questions you have to be included in the Q&A.

Throughout the program you will also participate in a Secret Facebook Group exclusively for program participants, where you will get additional support both from other program participants and myself. I’ll be posting extra resources, tips and suggestions, and hosting Facebook Lives throughout the 8 weeks for any impromptu Q&A required by the group.

This truly is a unique opportunity to finally break free from the cycle of restricted/diet led eating, and bingeing/overeating, and FINALLY learn how to eat well, with no deprivation, in a way that truly supports health, wellbeing AND weight loss in a very healthy, SUSTAINABLE way.

Here’s what some of my past clients have to say about working with me:

There were many eye-openers throughout my counselling work with Emma. Not only during the sessions themselves, but also at home when applying the tools Emma introduced to me over the course of the counselling. Particularly interesting to me were tools such as the “Lapse-Relapse-Collapse” charts and the 20-Minutes-Delay method. These are tools which I still apply today. During my sessions, I particularly appreciated the way Emma managed to get me out of my “tear attacks” through her calm, understanding, supportive, yet directive way of questioning and explaining. I really appreciated the counselling sessions and would recommend Emma Murphy to anyone looking for a really good, very professional, very understanding and witty counsellor in the field of eating disorders.” (Binge Eating Disorder)

My thought processes surrounding food and exercise were completely turned around during the time I spent with Emma. It’s amazing to think back to that difficult, regimented period of time in my life and compare it to how I deal with the same everyday situations I encounter now. A mere four months after I first walked into the cosy consultation room I cycled from Croatia to Athens with my boyfriend – a spectacular experience that I wouldn’t have been able to complete without the support and guidance I obtained at Counselling Care Cork. Thank you ever so much” (Overexercising and Restrictive Eating)

I’ve tried many therapists who I feel wait to listen for a trigger and jump on it like a grenade. Emma really listened to me. No frilly soft speaking therapist talk. Like having a chat with a good friend and working through a few problems. I just want to thank you Emma, I saw you before my final year in college, following our sessions I had an amazing trip to Italy where I connected with my mom after spending years resenting her for being upset with my unhealthy coping mechanisms. I’ve since finished college and moved to Los Angeles and have an amazing job where I feel confident and happy. PLUS my mom is on her way out for a holiday soon and I can’t wait to see my best friend! I have you to thank for a lot! You’ve taught me to be happy in my own skin and break the cycle of eating and being upset with myself and then eating again! You’ve thought me that a lapse is just that. A temporary thing and now I can draw a line under a bad day or a bad few weeks and get back on track! My weight and food and self-confidence was ruining my life and now I feel like I can take on anything and be happy and successful. You’re amazing and I would recommend you to anybody who’s going through a tough time! Thanks Emma.” (Binge Eating Disorder)
