In episode 4 of the Joyful Nourishment Podcast I speak with Emma Murphy about understanding binge eating and emotional eating.

Emma Murphy is a Psychotherapist specialising in disordered eating. She worked in private practice as an Eating Disorders Specialist for over 11 years, and has extensive experience of working with both individuals and groups on all parts of the disordered eating spectrum. 

Emma is a recognised expert in disordered eating and regularly speaks internationally on this topic at  conferences and summits. She is an accredited trainer and all her trainings are approved continuing education programs

Credentials: BA(Hons) Psychology, PGDip Counselling and Psychotherapy, FETAC Trainer, HSE approved Group Facilitator, Eating Disorder Specialist Psychotherapist (NCFED UK).

In this podcast episode we discuss:

  • A dive deep into the different aspects of binge eating and emotional eating
  • The typical personality type (which might make you more vulnerable to developing disordered eating), trauma and dieting.
  • How understanding that binge eating is not really about food

You will learn what the risk factors are, when people typically tend to seek help, what help to look for if you are struggling and what the benefits of seeking out professional support are.

It is a jam-packed episode with so many gems from Emma’s years of experience in this field.

Hey there, I´m Linn

This is my little corner of the internet where I share things related to our complex relationship with food, eating and our bodies.

I believe that eating ought to be nourishing and joyful instead of filled with fear, guilt and shame.

Your body, and all of you, is worthy of care and  food or eating should never need to be earned or justified.
