'Eating Freely’ 12 Week Program for
Emotional Eating and Binge Eating In Dublin
HOW DOES EATING FREELY WORK?
Eating Freely is a structured, time limited program with all the support you need to help you get on track, and STAY on track – physically, mentally and emotionally.
Once you have been linked with your Therapist to work with, you will attend your first four sessions WEEKLY.
After each session you attend, you will receive an email containing a video which will remind you of the theme of your session, and a downloadable version of whatever exercise or tool your Therapist gave you that week.
Between weeks 2 and 3, you will also have a 90 minute consultation with an Eating Freely Nutritional Therapist - either in person or online. This comprehensive session will give you both guidance on rehabilitating your gut (because all our clients' guts need a bit of help to get back on track!), AND put together your nutritionally dense, personalised Eating Plan for Life - which will take into consideration any other health issues you may have from IBS or leaky gut, to fibromyalgia or an underactive thyroid, and anything else that needs to be addressed.
After four weekly sessions with your Eating Freely Therapist, you will move to fortnightly sessions, giving you more time between sessions to put your learning into practice.
You’ll also have access to our Private Members Forum and Closed Facebook Group for additional support from other program participants, and Eating Freely Therapists to answer questions, give feedback etc.
YOUR 'NO MORE DIETS' RESOLUTION THAT YOU CAN MAKE ANY TIME IN 2019!
What a gift to give yourself this year, the gift of true FREEDOM around food, FOREVER!
The problem has never been that you just cannot stick to a diet, or you just haven't found the right diet, the problem IS dieting.
Dieting sets you up for a 'deprivation' mindset, the feeling of 'I can't have...' or even 'I don't deserve...';
Dieting tells you every single hour of every day that you are "not good enough" the way you are;
Dieting reduces your entire self-worth to a number - on a scale, or a label;
Dieting TRIGGERS bingeing and overeating. FACT.
Dieting never works long term. If it did, you wouldn't have to keep going on a diet!
WHAT WILL THE PROGRAM COVER?
"Eating Freely" is a combination of CBT (Cognitive Behaviour Therapy), Nutritional Rehabilitation, Neuroscience and Mindfulness, interwoven over the course of your program to give you a great toolbox of resources you can begin using straight away, and continue to build on after you finish working with your Therapist.
- CBT Tools and Resources give you concrete, usable tools that help you significantly reduce bingeing, emotional eating and overeating episodes - straight away;
- Nutritional Rehabilitation – When your gut has been abused the way our clients’ guts have been abused, it contributes HUGELY to the ‘brain fog’, lack of motivation, low mood and completely skewed hunger/not hungry cues. Your individual 90 minute consultation with an Eating Freely Nutritional Therapist is a critical component of the program as it will significantly support your better physical and mental health;
- 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 & Self-compassion brings you back into the present moment, where you can choose to behave differently, challenge your unhelpful thoughts, learn how to calm yourself and reduce anxiety - which in turn reduces your episodes of emotional eating and binge eating. Self-compassion is also key - our clients are very hard on themselves, and that inner critical voice does NOT motivate you to change, in fact it usually triggers you to eat! So learning how to replace that critical voice with kindness and compassion is very much part of the work we do. When you treat yourself better, you are more likely to EAT better - FACT.
'Eating Freely' 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.
Rosaria Chiappone Dublin 18 (Fluent Italian Speaker)
Hi, I’m Rosaria Chiappone, I am a qualified, accredited Integrative Counsellor and Psychotherapist and I work I work from Sandyford Wellness Centre in Sandyford, opposite the Luas Green Line 'Sandyford' Stop.
I believe in people’s innate ability to heal, grow and overcome blocks and issues from the past, which may be holding them back and I strongly value the power of the therapeutic relationship as a vital component in growth and healing. I have worked with a range of clients of different ages, ethnicities and genders who have experienced difficulties such as bullying, life-stage changes, stress, relationship issues, low self-esteem, anxiety, depression, bereavement and loss.
I decided to train as an Eating Freely Therapist as I have met different clients who have a very difficult relationship with food; and who have struggled all their lives to embrace themselves the way they are. I am very passionate about helping my clients not only overcome their struggles with food and body image; but also, to empower them to discover their unique strengths and qualities. By learning how to be more loving and compassionate towards themselves they can achieve a meaningful and fulfilling way of life.
I am a native Italian and can therefore work with Italian speaking clients too.

Karen Fitzsimons, Dublin 2
Hello my name is Karen Fitzsimons and I am a certified Eating Freely Therapist in private practice, in Dublin 2. I was drawn to the area of disordered/distressed eating out of my 16 years clinical experience with a wide range of clients presenting with these issues, and because of my belief that it is possible for us all to have the healthy relationship with food/body image that we desire.
I believe that psychotherapy offers individuals an opportunity within a safe and contained space to find true wellbeing. I support clients to move through and beyond the psychological, emotional, and physical experiences that impact on their day to day living. My therapeutic approach is integrative and adapted to personally respond to my clients’ needs.
My training includes a post-graduate Diploma in Gestalt Therapy, Integrative Bodywork, Embodied Psychotherapy Practice, Counselling and Supervision and Addiction Studies. I also trained as a couples therapist with Accord.
I am delighted to be able to support you in moving to a new place of peace with food, weight and your own self-image.
I work from a practice in Wicklow Street in Dublin's city centre.
Debbie Farrell, Dublin 18
Hi I am Debbie Farrell, and am a fully qualified and accredited Psychotherapist with the IACP.
I work with individuals on a one to one basis in private practice, dealing with clients who suffer with Anxiety, Stress, Bereavement & Loss, Panic Attacks, Trauma, Relational Issues, and Eating Issues. I also have experience with clients suffering with suicidal thoughts and self-harm. My work is all within a psychodynamic framework, bringing in elements of CBT and Mindfulness.
For my clients who present with eating issues, the main focus for them has been on their food, dieting and weight. I wanted to train as an Eating Freely therapist because of the structured approach to changing the mindset around food. By combining Neuroscience,
Mindfulness and CBT we can understand the thoughts and behaviours as to why we do what we do when it comes to eating. Nurturing the self and understanding our thoughts, feelings and behaviours allows for healthy and adaptive change.
I work from Sandyford Wellness Centre in Sandyford, opposite the Luas Green Line 'Sandyford' Stop.
Jennifer Good, Dublin 18
Hello, I’m Jennifer Good and I hold a B.A Counselling & Psychotherapy and I’m IACP accredited.
I am a fully qualified, accredited Psychotherapist, with over 8 years’ experience working with clients, tackling issues across a broad spectrum. I enjoy working with clients to create a supportive and caring environment, free from judgment, allowing them to grow and live their best possible life.
Becoming an Eating Freely therapist appealed to me because I really believe in the four pillars set out by the program; CBT tools and resources, Nutritional Rehabilitation, Neuroscience and finally Mindfulness and Self Compassion. Using these 4 pillars in a constructive and prescriptive way can really set people free from the vicious cycle they can find themselves in regarding their relationship with food and themselves.
I look forward to bringing this program to clients, sharing the tools and helping them break free from emotional and binge eating.

Deirdre Nolan, Dublin 18
Hi, I'm Deirdre and I am a qualified Counsellor & Psychotherapist.
I work in a integrative and person-centered way, creating a supportive and non-judgmental space where clients can explore their emotions and experiences. This safe space encourages clients to discover their internal strengths and resources.
Having completed my clinical placement training in Sandyford Wellness Centre, I was very drawn to working with Emma and her Eating Freely program, as I encountered food and body image distress regularly with my own clients. Often a client who comes to a therapist is initially seeking support for anxiety or low mood, but may then share their distress around their relationship with food and their weight/body image. I feel passionate about helping clients let go of not only their unhelpful behaviours around food, but the shame they experience as a result.
I am also a Speech and Drama Teacher for over 20 years and I bring that experience into my counselling; particularly around building self-confidence and better communication skills.
Roseleen Flaherty, Dublin 2/4
Hello, I’m Roseleen, I am a fully qualified, accredited Psychotherapist, and registered nurse, specialising in oncology.
My primary area of work has been in supporting clients and family members going through or recovering from cancer treatment.
I was drawn to the Eating Freely training because of my work with so many women over the years, who experience negative body image and use food as a coping or 'self-soothing' strategy when times are tough.
So much of what I have learned about health and illness over the years comes back to lifestyle choices. But when you are trapped in an emotional eating cycle, or punish yourself with food without truly understanding why - making superficial lifestyle changes will never resolve the underlying isses.
I work in an empathic, caring way with clients to support them fully into a loving, self-caring relationship with themselves. I believe that when we treat ourselves better, we can 'eat ourselves better' - from a physical, emotional and psychological perspective.
I have my practice in Herbert Place, Dublin 2.
Hello, I’m Caitriona, I am a fully qualified, accredited Psychotherapist, with over 13 years experience, working both with individuals and couples.
My primary area of work has been in couples and relationships, supporting one or both partners in crisis or on the verge of breakdown, as well as those who have recently separated and are grieving this loss.
I have also worked extensively with couples who have intimacy issues of all kinds and with couples who are not managing the level of conflict in their relationship, including those stuck in abusive relationships.
I was drawn to the Eating Freely training because disordered eating, binge eating, emotional eating and bulimia are coping strategies I am seeing more and more within my couples and relationships work, but I did not have the specialist skills to support my clients.
Since completing the training I have been delighted to help my existing clients in a new way, and I look forward to welcoming new clients who need this vital support to resolve their relationship with food. I believe that when I can empower you to let go of food as your 'friend', and support you in rediscovering your Mojo and a happier relationship with yourself, every other relationship in your life will also improve.
Hi there, I’m Blanaid Ring and I am a fully trained psychotherapist with a practice based in the beautiful fishing village of Howth, Dublin 13.
Having suffered from adult acne and stomach issues in the past I educated myself about food, made it fun and changed my mindset, I have learnt to use food to nurture myself and my family, no more sugar overload or next day deprivation.
Many clients come to me suffering from low self-esteem and poor body image, they struggle to know what their body really needs.
By tuning in and meeting their own needs and by understanding how to be kind and caring towards themselves it is certainly possible for anyone of any size to adopt healthier behaviours for life with the right inner voice and tool set.
Working with the Eating Freely programme allows me to help you change your relationship with food forever.
Eating Freely is a fully supportive programme that offers to empower you by providing the tools and therapeutic space to help you overcome your personal food and weight struggles for lasting recovery.
We also have a fluent German speaking Therapist based in Rathgar, and Therapists who work Online via secure and encrypted video link.
