The World's Leading Network of Emotional Eating & Binge Eating Disorder Specialists


Emma is the CEO and Founder of Eating Freely, a specialist program for emotional eating and binge eating disorder.  Emma is on a mission  to develop the World’s leading network of Emotional Eating & Binge Eating Specialists, and impact 1 million lives in the next three years.

Having worked as a disordered eating specialist psychotherapist for over 12 years in private practice, Emma developed the Eating Freely Program through her support of many hundreds of adult clients during this time.

Emma is recognised as an expert and thought leader for her work in helping people to overcome long standing emotional eating or binge eating disorder – a serious mental health condition often underpinned by trauma that goes unrecognised, undiagnosed and not treated correctly by health professionals. Emotional eating is about feelings, not food – and no diet or weight loss program will resolve it.

30% of adults seeking weight loss support meet the criteria for binge eating disorder. In type 2 diabetes patients it is 38%, in bariatric surgery it’s 60%, yet few to no medical treatment protocols for these conditions includes specialist psychological support.

With very few specialists in this area to this day, Emma began training other professionals in 2016, and now has a growing international network of practitioners from Ireland, UK, USA and as far afield as South Africa and Singapore, through her Continuing Education approved training and licensing model.  Her program is now being licensed by healthcare organisations who recognise the gap in their services.

Emma is an international speaker and author of The Four Energies of Emotional Eating therapy card deck and book.
