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 making them BANANAS!) 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 work with women, children, and health professionals - 1:1, via my self study program, live workshops, and speaking engagements, with the end goal always being: JOYFUL women & families who feel peaceful around food, comfortable in their own skin, and able to make flexible, healthy choices for themselves without angst.
