"I've attended dozens of mindfulness for kids’ workshops over the past few decades, and the time I spent with Louise was quite possibly the most practical and most inspiring trainings I've participated in. I learned so much and walked away with so many ideas in the few hours we spent together and can’t wait to learn more from her!"

"Louise is amazing and inspiring. The whole world is lucky to have her teaching mindfulness and meditation to children"

The 'Kindfully Me' series makes me feel all warm inside as I sense calm and compassion radiating from each and every page. Louise has a unique way of nurturing important qualities in children, such as practicing kindness towards others and towards ourselves, becoming aware of and accepting our colourful rainbow of emotions, and feeling thankful for what we have, all of which sow the seeds for emotionally healthy adults. The illustrations beautifully bring these qualities to life, and the practical activities are the perfect accompaniment to help children apply these qualities in their own lives. My little girls are delighted to have found a sequel to their treasured 'Mindfully Me' series which they feel from the top of their heads to the tips of their toes! Thank you Louise and Úna for this little piece of magic, which is sure to help children all over the world feel a sense of self-worth and belonging x

"This training is amazing. Louise is such an authentic teacher who encompasses everything that mindfulness is about. I cannot recommend this enough. Every piece of information you will need is readily available to you and the support is second to none to help you to start or reinforce your personal practice. If you are dithering about booking on to this - don't - it will be life changing for you and the children you will share it with.

"This training is so wholesome and Louise provides such a nourishing space. It is worth doing as a gift to yourself even if you have no immediate plans to work with kids. It is a wonderful support offering new ways of being. It can enhance your relationship with everyone and everything, and most importantly through the self compassion, help build a better relationship with yourself!

"I can't honestly recommend this course enough, the easy layout of the course to understand and follow to the constant support that Louise gives is amazing. The time and passion Louise gives is clearly visable to see throughout. I'm not quiet finished yet but to me it's like when you get into a good book your unsure if you actually want to finish it is that good. Anyone thinking about it just do it you won't be sorry. X"

"I cannot say enough good things about this course. I thoroughly enjoyed it. I found myself really excited to see what would come next in each video. Louise is a fantastic mentor who has such a warm and caring presence and was so helpful. I learned so much about myself on the course which I did not expect. The course content is amazingly put together. The weekly webinars are fantastic too. Everything you could expect to learn and more. Thank you so much Louise"
Emma Brummel
"I have loved completing this course. The modules were clearly laid out, enjoyable, hugely informative and easy to work through around my children. I have found the personal practice part of the training to be invaluable, especially the weekly webinars which helped me set a little time aside each week just for me. Louise is a wonderful teacher and I am looking forward to taking more training with her in the future."

"I highly recommend this course! Louise is an outstanding teacher. She is so unbelievably knowledgeable, kind and compassionate. She is, without a doubt, the best within this field. I have been blessed to have had both in-person and online training facilitated by Louise. Louise has such a beautiful presence regardless of whether it be in-person or online. She is so supportive and inspiring. Her webinars and courses are just fantastic. I initially embarked upon the Creative Mindfulness training as I felt (as a mammy of 5 young kids) that it would be hughly beneficial to both myself and my family. Little did I realise that I would put myself 'outside my "stay-at-home mammy box'" & bring this amazing gift to other children, which I have absolutely loved. I felt so supported and encouraged by Louise at all times. I have also been brought on a very personal journey of self-discovery and self-compassion which has been transformative. Mindfulness and mindful living is now a way of life for me. It has become engrained in my being. I am indebted to Louise for all of this. I am also so grateful to Louise, Thomas Masselis & John Shanagher who have all had a role to play in the creation of the online courses. I am so happy that Louise's Creative Kids Method is rippling out to other countries, this is just fantastic! Without a shadow of a doubt, I highly recommend this course."

"To say this course exceeded my expectations would be an understatement. It was very apparent as I worked my way through each module that you have put your heart and soul in to making this course as helpful and beneficial as possible. A huge wealth of information, expertise and resources was shared throughout. A stand out thread for me, was the level of integrity, value and understanding of the importance of mindfulness and positive mental health and well-being for all throughout our whole lives.
On a personal level, the emphasis, support and guidance given for my own practice was superb. Through your webinars and your 1:1 support my own practice has really grown and is now embedded in my everyday life.
I feel honored to now be part of the "Creative Mindfulness for Kids" community and am looking forward to continuing this fabulous journey together.

"I just want to tell you how much I'm enjoying the online course. I was just thinking this morning as I was listening to it that I must send you a message to say how brilliantly presented the course is and I have the utmost respect for you and all the time and dedication you have put into getting the course all recorded.
I am loving doing the course online. If all online courses were as well presented and as professional as yours it would make online learning so much more enjoyable.
I feel you are just in the room with me teaching and guiding me through the modules. The course is one that's so close to my heart so that makes it even more enjoyable and interesting to me.
I hope you had as much enjoyment planning, producing and recording the course as I am getting along my journey of learning and personal growth.
Not only will I finish the course with a wonderful belief , ability and confidence to teach children mindfulness but I am also being given thought the course a chance to go on a personal journey for myself.
Thank you Louise for putting so much of your time, dedication and your heart into producing this course for me and all those that availed of it."

"I honestly started this course for my son who was suffering a bit of anxiety little did I realise it was me that needed it more. I have grown so much on this journey as a woman and mother. Its almost like I have come home to myself like I have just met myself as a person. It is all thanks to Louise and her absolutely beautiful course and constant reassurance and support. It is the best thing I've ever done if even only for myself"

"Mind blown by this compassion add on, it just makes so much sense and makes everything gentle and manageable!! I am just adoring the course and I am really shocked by how much it has impacted my personal practice so thank you so much for this."

"The amount of resources you have and variety of ways they can be used is fabulous. I love your approach and I love how creative you are. I also like that fact that you are always encouraging the kids to be creative and affording them time to discover their own creativity and to identify their feelings and emotions!"

"I have just completed the creative mindfulness course with Louise. I honestly don't think I can fully put into words the effect the course has had on me. I am so glad I did it and would highly recommend it to anyone thinking of doing it.
The course by far superceded all my expectations. I have done so many courses in the past and thought this would be a similar format to most of them I was expecting to watch some videos and learn a few new techniques , I hadn't expected to begin such a personal journey.
All the course content is top class, Louise has out so much effort into every video and it feels like Louise is their in the room with you.
There is amazing support from the weekly webinars with Louise, the WhatsApp group of other students and the training Facebook page. And if you ever need support Louise is just an email away and will always get back to you.
I would highly recommend this course and I personally cannot wait to continue to train in the future with Louise's add-ons."

"I wanted to touch base with you to thank you for the fantastic way that you have changed my life!
I sent off another assignment this morning, all I do after sending off an assignment is check emails for results. Not to see my grade but to see whether or not I can move onto the next module. The course is so powerful! It's like a book that you can't put down....
If ever you feel exhausted or overwhelmed, please think of the amount of people, parents, teachers, caregivers and children that your course has helped and is going to help in the future.
Sending you love and appreciation."

"I am totally loving everything so far and am watching the videos going yes - I love it!! You are an angel spreading out a beautiful message thank you for everything so far. I have to say I feel that the support that you offer is fantastic. I know other providers who do not do the half of it. The webinars, personal practice even advice regarding suitability of activities for age group and timings really are brilliant. Trainees will go out feeling entirely prepared to support children."
