User experiences

 

DR. SUSAN CONNOLLY, PHYSICIAN
PALO ALTO MEDICAL FOUNDATION, M.D. HARVARD MEDICAL SCHOOL

"My experience with the Meru Health program was excellent. I enjoyed the idea of having a different theme each week, with videos and guided practices to support each theme. The therapist who did the videos and guided mindfulness practices was perfect---pleasant voice to listen to, with perfect attitude and tone. I appreciated the availability of the therapist, and also enjoyed the interactions with other people participating in the course at the same time. I have taken Mindfulness-based stress reduction (MBSR) courses in the past, and found Meru to be superior to the in-person classes, in part because I was able to do it at my own pace and at whatever time of day suited me. The daily reminders to do the practices were quite effective and I wound up following through almost 100% of the time--way better than when I've taken MBSR courses. I also really appreciate that I continue to have access to the guided practices now that I've finished the treatment program. I highly recommend the Meru Health program to everyone--whether dealing with depression and/or anxiety, or simply seeking a more positive and peaceful life experience."

"Meru has been such a healing experience for me. I didn’t know what to expect other than the hope that I’d come out the other side completely transformed and capable. And that’s exactly what happened. I went from feeling depressed, highly anxious, hopeless, and powerless to feeling happy-neutral, with a calm and centered mind, feeling accepting, capable, and empowered. No doubt the success came from me putting the work in myself and taking it seriously, but I couldn’t have done it without Meru’s unique program and encouraging therapists. Meru was the tool I needed to help me form sustained habits to wellness. Everyday I still continue to use their unique set of practices and I don’t plan to stop.”
