My name is Merlin and I provide online coaching service that targets individuals who are looking to achieve positive changes in their body composition.  I have a background as an occupational therapist technician in a number of secure mental units and as worked as a junior therapist within community palliative settings. Due to my background, I put a lot of focus on identifying the biopsychosocial factors that could impede or enable a client’s progress. Therefore, my coaching is particularly suitable those for want to fundamentally change how they think and feel about nutrition.
