TONI, 43 YEARS OLD

I moved back to Finland last fall after a couple of years abroad and I found myself in a situation where lot of changes were going on in my life. As the days started getting shorter, I noticed a decline in my energy levels and my moods started getting alarmingly low. There were days I didn’t have the strength to leave the house. That’s when I happened to bump into Meru Health and decided to give it a go. It really paid off. I got invaluable support from my personal therapist, which helped me to get back on track. The program also gave me a framework for working towards a better mental well-being on my own. The practices that I learned during the program were so valuable that I still find myself doing them even though the actual treatment ended months ago.

“Meru Health program turned out to be a very valuable tool for me. It supported me in challenging life situations as well as in everyday life. The program taught me to switch off from autopilot and let go of negative thinking traps that have contributed to my depression and anxiety. I also found a kinder and more compassionate attitude towards myself and others, and I’ve learned to make decisions based on my values. These things were particularly important for me. The Meru Health program offers a flexible way to do practices on my own but also to contact my therapist whenever more support and help is needed.”
