“Christina Merkley is a most trusted guide in the arena of Visual Process Work. She helped me understand and explore the “4 Animals” of Working Visually and apply within my own educational context and beyond.
I discovered my own visual voice! So empowering when my signature presence became visible through text, shapes, and colors in support of process work with individuals and groups. Creativity, while oftentimes a major block in adults’ minds, became a partner as I learned to transcend my own resistance and tap my strength and intrinsic value as a creator.
Christina punched a hole through the wall of my own limiting beliefs. Her awareness of creative blocks and her direct and pointed feedback challenged me to address blind spots and grow exponentially. As visual work is hands-on by nature, I learned through direct application the value and power of holding space for meaningful and powerful conversations, marker in hand up at the wall or on my digital tablet during a virtual session.
Thanks to her adage that “the only way out is through”, I learned to be accountable for the container I create for my clients. Humbled to capture defining moments that shape a certain form of thinking and being for my clients. Not only was I trusted to listen deeply and fully, but also to watch transformation occur in my clients via her SHIFT-IT System and my own visual and energetic tools.
I came out of Visual Coach Certification a more understanding, empathetic, aware, and connected human being in service of helping people reach their own vision of what they desire most. I am so grateful for that!”
