I am a warm and empathic NLP therapist who is fascinated by the uniqueness and experiences of individuals. I believe one size doesn’t fit all which is why I use an integrated approach which is flexible to the uniqueness of your story. 

My integrative approach draws on Neuro Linguistic Programming and Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy, facilitated with person-centred principles. This approach is very beneficial to those who have an urge to explore themselves and their feelings, and for those who want to address specific psychological habits, unhelpful patterns of thinking, or are looking for healthier ways of coping both personally and professionally.

Integrative Therapy with Merly

  • The focus of NLP is to encourage change in perception of self and develop choices in response to the way we communicate and deal with the situation’s life presents, in the current day and in the future.
  • Mindfulness- based cognitive therapy (MBCT) involves a combination of cognitive therapy, meditation, and the cultivation of a present-oriented, non-judgmental attitude which encompasses ‘mindfulness’. 
  • The person-centred approach focuses on facilitating personal growth and the relationship with self by allowing a client to explore past experiences, whilst utilising their own strengths and personal identity.

I would not dictate how many sessions you may need, some people need a few, others will want to come more regularly, but I will checking-in along the way to ensure that the work we are doing together feels right and beneficial to you. 

Prior to private practice and during training, I had a career as chef for 10 years and I have been in hospitality for a span of 15 years, therefore I have a lot of clients who are hospitality professionals who find mind my hospitality background useful to their therapeutic process. I also run stress reduction and mental health awareness workshops specifically for the hospitality industry.
