My ultimate goal is to help women off of the time-wasting, soul-sucking hamster wheel that is diet culture. To teach women how to make peace with food and feel free (and radiant!) in their own bodies....and to have FUN doing it. The antidote to ALL of this body-hating nonsense is fun, and play, and pleasure, and LIVING LIFE - instead of waiting until we lose weight to get started.

I’m Jillian Murphy and I work with diverse, smart, health-conscious, women who are DONE WITH DIETING, looking to get out of their heads (that are, quite frankly driving them CRAZY!) and re-connect with their body. I use cutting edge eating psychology, in-the-know insight & guidance around diet culture, health, and weight to teach women WHY they stay stuck in negative patterns around food and constant body dissatisfaction.
 
I teach online courses, work with women 1:1, and facilitate The Food Freedom/Body Love Collective - with the end goal always being - JOYFUL women who feel peaceful around food, comfortable in their own skin, and able to make flexible, healthy choices for themselves without angst.
