Course reviews

⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️
I joined this course two years ago in the hope it would help me introduce positive behavioural techniques in my preschool. This course has given me so so much more. It has touched my life in so many ways. My relationships are richer. I am kinder to myself and people around me, I am connecting with my children on levels I never thought I would be able too. I will be forever grateful for stumbling across this course and would highly recommend it just as much for personal growth as for teaching. This course has taught me to take the good with the bad. It has taught me that I am allowed to feel whatever way I feel and have the choice to allow unhelpful thought processes to fade away whilst also acknowledging my feelings and to heal and deal with difficult situations and unhelpful thoughts in ways I never knew were possible Louise Shanagher is a very experienced teacher and wonderful mentor. Honestly it is the best course I have ever signed up for! Highly recommended.

We are working closely with

"Louise has a lovely approach and style to her training. The pre-recorded videos are so helpful in that they provide a mix of self-practice and practical tips and resources. Having access to these recordings is hugely beneficial for when staff are delivering a mindfulness programme. Our staff see Louise an expert in the field of mindfulness and loved the interesting ways she explained the course content. Although some staff were worried about virtual/online training, concerns were quickly removed as Louise managed it brilliantly. Louise and the team are a pleasure to work with, the setting up and booking of courses is easy and the completion of their programmes is intuitive. We would be happy to endorse their Mindfulness training"

Our students have
a few nice things to say about us

"I have just completed the Creative Mindfulness for Kids Training, and also the Teen add on training, and have to say that these courses are nothing short of amazing. Louise Shanagher is so full of knowledge, the content of the course is the best and she and her team give outstanding support and guidance always. So much so that I am now doing full teacher training with Louise. I highly recommend this course for anyone wanting to work with children and young people and are interested in mental health. So glad that I did this course... and here's to more 😀Thank you Louise"
"I have just finished Creative Mindfulness Kids Training, and this course is nothing short of phenomenal. It has changed my life and my families lives for the better! I have a son with Asperger's and another son with a closed mindset and using techniques I learned on this course, I have been able to influence the way my boys look at their minds and their feelings and the world around them. I was thinking I would learn how to teach mindfulness to children, what I got was an inspiration to go out there and make a difference in children’s lives using mindfulness.
Fabulous, fabulous, fabulous course!"
"I have just completed my creative mindfulness training and I have to say it is the best and most beautiful course I have ever done. I enjoyed every moment of it and  it has changed my life for the absolute better.The course is amazing and so thorough covering absolutely every aspect needed to deliver creative mindfulness to children. It is so clear that Louise has put so much love and thought into the training and delivering this important message of loving kindness and compassion . I felt very supported throughout every step. I found the personal practice sessions so beneficial.. Everything you need to deliver this course is provided and more. I cannot recommend this course enough. If you are thinking of doing it please do. It will transform your own life for the better along with passing on really important messages and practices to children that will support them throughout their lives."
