“Merly has delivered her Be Kind To Mind class to our employees twice so far and we will definitely use her again! The class is so informative and interesting but also totally relaxed.

It's so great to see mental health, wellbeing and stress being discussed more and more in our industry and Merly's classes are a brilliant way to introduce more self awareness and self care to your teams. I can't recommend her highly enough."

“It was so refreshing to be able to talk openly about an issue which affects so many in the industry.

The Be Kind to Mind workshop boldly tackles a problem that is too often swept under the carpet in hospitality, written off as ‘part of the job’ thanks to high pressure services and long, unsociable hours. Merly is a wonderful guide through this process, inspiring new coping methods and allowing a platform of discussion that has the power to revolutionise the industry we call home.”

“Be Kind to Mind is a great training session that everyone in hospitality should experience. It will give you an understanding of how stress affects your mind and body, but most importantly it will give you tools to improve and support yourself in the best way.

If feeling stressed yourself or if you want to understand how to read the signals of stressed team members and you would like to offer support , this training is a great resource.

Merly is knowledgable and really understands the challenges of hospitality. Highly recommend it.”
