About Merly

My background has been predominately in helping people navigate life’s big transitions in their careers after sustaining an injury, psychological, physical or both. I’ve also supported migrants, refugees and people with disabilities to be contributing members of society.

I’m ex-recruitment and work and have been contracting as an Employment Specialist and Labour Market Investigator for various occupational rehabilitation providers.

As someone who has lived experience dealing with anxiety and panic attacks in my early 20s as well as sustaining a workplace injury, I understand the importance of mental health in the workplace. I transitioned from being a full-time employee into self-employment whilst 6 months pregnant with my first child and so I also understand the challenges of what it’s like to rediscover and reinvent yourself after having a baby and being an entrepreneur. Outside of my corporate health coaching role, I’ve been privileged to support working mums in this journey with my 1:1 private coaching with healing from chronic stress and burnout.

As a corporate health coach and employment specialist, my passion is helping companies prevent staff burnout and reduce worker’s compensation claims throughout wh 1:1 health coaching & employee health education.

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!”
