What They’re Saying

 

I found the time that I worked with Merly truly transformational. As a working mom with a corporate career and my own businesses, pausing for myself can be challenging. Merly has helped me make space for my own thoughts and feeling. She has helped me build skills and recommended tools to remain consistent. I learned more about balancing masculine and feminine energies. And understanding you truly need both. Our time together was a jump start to help me find me. And I truly appreciate her for being amazing.

Abbey Dyer-Amonette, Operations Director of Cigna (Executive Coaching)

I had the pleasure to work with Merly as she delivered several workshops for our store. From the very beginning, I loved how organised and proactive she was to ensure the events were well organised which was particularly useful as someone is a busy  Business Owner. Merly is a genuine and knowledgeable presenter who is passionate about families living a healthier life and was happy to tailor the wellness workshops to our needs. She is a warming and caring person to work with and I can not recommend Merly's services highly enough. She is amazing and certainly a blessing to any individual or company who is fortunate enough to work with her.


Magda King, The Source Bulkfoods (Workshops)

Before I started working with Merly, although my period is regular, I was experiencing headaches, abdominal and gum pain as well as extreme mood swings and feeling ultra-sensitive emotionally. My sleep was deep but short and abrupt. I would often wake up at 3 am or 5.30 am because I was stressed and exercising very little if at all. I was also craving a lot of sugar. I'm halfway through my coaching program and I'm feeling less stressed and more capable of achieving my goals. During this time, I have noticed I enjoy having structure and routine which in the past I would have avoided. I identified areas of my life that were a huge source of stress and by my second session, I had made a firm decision on the direction I wanted to go. By my third session, we had instigated the steps to move forward. Making this decision, I noticed my stress levels decreased significantly, I’m feeling happier, more cheeky and freer to live my convictions. I also noticed by my third session, I was no longer experiencing migraines or PMS symptoms. My sleep is restful and regular and I’m dreaming now which I wasn’t before. I’m creatively cooking and more conscious of my food and what I put into my body. I can not stress how important it is to have someone of Merly’s calibre to support you and coach you each impactful step of the way. Sure you can try to do it by yourself, but her intrinsic knowledge of what will work for you specifically is of high value to me. She is more than a personal cheerleader and kickass fountain of information, she is someone who understands with compassion and generosity.






Ashley Young, Business Owner (Coaching)

Before working with Merly I had allowed the voices of others to hold me back from believing that I was capable of making the changes I wanted to make, to experience my best possible life. Since working with Merly, I have been so grateful to find a sounding board for my thoughts and feelings. The biggest change has been learning to trust my intuition and building the confidence to make the big changes I wanted to make. I've moved careers and stood proudly representing my community on issues relating to health that are important to myself and others. Merly is an approachable, realistic and enthusiastic coach. I would recommend Merly to anyone as their coach!! Having someone in your corner to encourage you is a valuable tool for every single person. I have loved working with you Merly! Thank you!






Alissa, Pattrick Health Administrator (Coaching)

Merly helped me to understand how hormones play a significant role which turned out to be the bases of all my health issues. What doctors failed to do and hundreds of products and money spent later, Merly helped to fix the underlying problem and not just deal with the symptoms. I highly recommend Merly for her caring nature and insight into a woman’s health. Thank you Merly!

Liza, Rehabilitation Consultant (Coaching)

Merly’s guidance has been invaluable during my motherhood experience; from pre-conception to post-partum recovery. My journey with Merly started 12 months before we decided to start a family. In preparation, I took myself off the pill, which I’d been using for the past 15 years. After 3 months of being pill free, I still had not menstruated. Obviously, my body was pretty confused. Within 3 months I experienced the return of my period and the consistent recurrence of menstruation/ovulation cycle, every 28 days, no pain, 9 months of a consistent, regular, pain-free cycle, I literally fell pregnant in our first practice. The second time around. Same story. Again I literally fell pregnant again, first go. There’s no doubt in my mind that the Merly’s coaching and advice were the changing force to make this happen.




Azaria, Occupational Therapist (Coaching)

So when I met Merly I had been on the pill since I was 17 for bad periods! I had to take an anti-inflammatory prescription for a week out of the month as they were so bad! After 12 years on them, I developed a very bad stomach ulcer and was told I could never take another one again. I was frequently bedridden and it was very heavy lasting 7 days! I went on a program with Merly and also went to my GP who referred me for an ultrasound. It came back that I had endometriosis attaching my bowel to my uterus. I was referred to a gynecologist with the aim of getting a laparoscopy. Following 3 months on the program, my periods felt non-existent! Down to 3 days not heavy and no pain so much so that I would forget to bring tampons with me and I have never even taken a Panadol since! When it was time to start a family, I had no problem conceiving my first child – pregnant on the first try and continued with Merly’s advice post-birth because in my family there is a history of postnatal depression in my family and I was fine! When my son was 14 months old and I was still breastfeeding I wanted to get my cycle back and with Merly’s support, I got my period back within 2 months and had a regular cycle straight away. I conceived 3 months after that on our first proper attempt at ovulation with our second child. She’s amazing and has changed my life. Merly helped me conceive and got rid of my endometriosis symptoms. Yay to happy hormones and yay to Merly! Thanks so much love you lots and lots of luck with your journey to anyone who is reading this.







Laura, Occupational Therapist (Coaching)

Before I started working with Merly, I was feeling overwhelmed, tired, sluggish, stressed and felt like I was living out of alignment. After just 6 weeks with Merly, she helped me get back to the basics and tracking my menstrual cycle helped me feel more empowered and let go of some tension that I didn’t realise I was holding onto around my cycle. I now have more energy overall and am taking a more holistic approach to balancing my hormones. I have little steps in place that will act as the foundational building blocks to create changes in habits, along with a renewed sense of accountability around prioritising overall health and well-being. Along with Realistic, SMART goals to ensure I can maintain the proactive momentum gained from these coaching sessions. Through the sessions, Merly helped me identify areas of my life where I can create more space for and envision a future living a life of purpose and meaning. If it wasn’t for Merly’s wealth of knowledge, support and guidance I would not have gotten to this point. Thank you so much for all your help.
