MERRIMENT (Life) Coach
to do good
Taking ‘one step at a time’ only works if you understand what step to take.
So tell me everything on your plate and I will tell you the order to start in. Hand the overwhelm over to me.
Plus, I’ll tell you how to make it fun while you do it.
About Mary England
Mary “Uncustomary” England is a published author, life coach, event speaker, podcaster, and team building facilitator. She has two degrees in Psychology and has run her own business since 2013, where she created her own job title: Merriment Maker.
Previously, she worked at a psychiatric rehabilitation center and has a total of 15 years of education and experience in psychology. She actively studies psychology, positivity, and the science of fun.
Mary has one dozen mental illnesses of my own which she has learned to effectively manage for over two decades. She has a sincere desire of wanting to be happy, even though she is not naturally being happy. She knows if she can have an eating disorder, self-harm every day for years, try to kill herself, abuse drugs, and experience sexual assault and still create a fun and successful life, she can help you have one, too.
Her methods are founded in psychology and science, and she balances the cerebral and somatic (mind and body). Mary has taught adults how to read and love themselves. Perhaps most importantly, Mary is here to get you to take action, not just to theoretically understand something. She believes tangibility will always win over theory.

Together We Will
Do you feel disconnected, frustrated, or exhausted?
Do you want to be able to make a difference in this world, but you can’t seem to catch your breathe to get to the next level?
Do you just know there’s more for you in this life?
Most of us have been thrown into adulthood without adequate preparation or communication for what it entails. Our precious joy, wonder, and excitement have been combed out of us through the necessity of survival.
I believe we are here to not just experience joy but to create it for others. You will not be able to create joy for others at the expense of your own comfort, let alone on a mass level, if you don’t create systems for success different from what hasn’t been working.
Part of what hasn’t been working is treating yourself as an exclusively intellectual being, and being disconnected from your body. Another part is only thinking about doing and not starting.
I help adults find their unique joys, weird pleasures, and authentic self-brands. My coaching method relies on merging the cerebral and somatic, the theory and tangible.
You’ll never leave a session with me without a clear idea of what you’re supposed to do next. I provide you with actionable activities and assignments to set you up for success.

You were amazing yesterday.
I told my friend you read me like a book. Which I loved!
I’m so happy to be coaching with you.
“I’m so grateful for the work that Mary did with me on my business branding, personal image, website, and products and services. We just finished a 60-day project that significantly re-wired my socials and brands. She helped me to clarify my vision for my business, and she gave me the tools, resources, and accountability I needed to make it a reality.
Mary is a highly skilled and experienced coach. She is also a great listener and a wonderful collaborator. She helped me to identify my strengths and weaknesses, and she worked with me to develop a plan to improve my business.
I would highly recommend Mary to anyone who is looking for a business or personal coach. I told her she’d be the first member of the Board of Directors when my business scales up. She’s an asset to any business.”

“Thank you for being so generous! I had a delightful time working with you!
You inspire me by how you share your uniqueness and your incredible skills and confidence!
I am so glad I met you. I am honored to share how much I appreciate you and the services you offer!
You are the best! Thank you Mary for what you do in the world.”
“I have been an Uncustomary subscriber for over a year now. I appreciate the inspiration, blog posts, and the opportunity for the free e-courses. This time, Mary offered the opportunity for a 1:1 call and I made sure to take her up on it. Our discussion focused on Body Image as I’m working through some weight gain. She was very encouraging and informative and provided great resources in a follow up email.”
“Mary is super knowledgeable about various subjects and gives very practical advice.
The recap email is a great bonus and she provides so many resources to learn more about the issues you are experiencing.
Sometimes it’s great to just talk with a nuetral third party that has a listening ear and compassion to share and Mary is an excellent person to talk to. I’m excited about getting started on my homework.”

Why Choose Me
I’m here to give you tangible lessons that aren’t just “turn on music, feel yourself, and take a bath”.
I find that shit condescending.
I believe your circumstances and trauma are incredibly important and I won’t ignore them. I also won’t coddle you and let you stay inside in victim mode.
My methods are based and founded in psychology and scientific research and mixed with magic and optimism. I’m also hilarious.
My multi-passionateness creates a unique approach with different modalities you might not expect or be used to for an integrated approach.
