"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 cant wait to learn more from her!"

"Louise is an amazing teacher and I am grateful for her guidance on my journey for teaching mindfulness and self-compassion to other people. Not only did I learn teaching skills in mindfulness but it enhanced my own journey by embracing mindfulness with self-compassion. If found the course I took with Louise so valuable. Her genuine passion for mindfulness and self-compassion and her extensive knowledge in the area provided tremendous support to me throughout my learning journey. I would recommend any course Louise is involved in."
"I studied for a Certificate in Mindfulness in Athlone Institute of Technology from Sept 2018 - April 2019, which was delivered by Louise Shanagher. I cannot speak highly enough of Louise and I see her as one of the pioneers in the area of mindfulness teaching in Ireland. Her dedication and passion for teaching students about mindfulness is second to none. It was clear from the very first class how strongly she believed in the benefits of mindfulness and how much she enjoyed teaching others about this subject. I myself have learned so much from Louise and my own mental, emotional and physical health have improved because of her teaching. I have always felt that any subject can be informative and enjoyable if it is delivered properly. Louise did this consistently and I would highly recommend her. She is one of a kind.”
"I can offer only the highest recommendation for Louise Shanagher and her courses. It has been an absolute joy and honour learning from Louise who I believe to be the best within this field. Louise is an outstanding teacher, mentor and role model. She epitomises mindfulness and mindful living. Her passion is contagious. Her calm personality, enthusiasm and kind and caring nature is infectious. Louise delivers her courses to an exceptionally high standard while at the same time supporting, nurturing and encouraging a strong personal practice with frequent self-reflection. "

"I spent last weekend in Tipperary training with Louise which was amazing to say the least. Louise's delivery, outlook on life and passion is awe inspiring. I could not wish for a better tutor/teacher or mentor. She definitely inspires me to be a better person and to spread the word on this mindful journey that we are on. So YES I would highly recommend Creative Mindfulness Kids Training.... There is alot to learn but the learning is beyond enjoyable...and I must say it is not a stressful course...I have 1 more day of training to complete which I'm sincerely looking forward to. Thank you for everything Louise & Thomas. And keep up the good work.. 💖x"

"I never in my 25 years of life met a girl like Louise , she is so passionate and kind and is a true inspiration. As a young girl I look up to everything she does and am so grateful to have came across her training. I would encourage anyone who has any bit of interest in this field to look into the training that Louise gives. It really was 6 days well spent and I hope some day I can follow her footprints. Thanks from the bottom of my heart I have finally found some piece in my own mind and can’t wait to give the children the tools to do the same. All the best in everything you do, I hope we pass paths again in this life some time soon."

"Louise is an amazing trainer! Her knowledge & insight into mindfulness for children is truly inspiring. Training with Louise has been literally life changing for me both professionally in how I teach mindfulness to my preschool class & personally in my own mindful practice. I can't thank Louise enough for all I have learned so far & I look forward to continuing to train with her in the coming months. Louise is not only a fantastic trainer but also a genuinely lovely person who is trying to make life a little easier for children in this chaotic world! I highly recommend her training to anyone with an interest in mindfulness for children."

"Louise is a brilliant teacher. Not only have I learnt how to teach children creatively about mindfulness and being kind to themselves and others, I have also learnt the importance of my own mindfulness practice and self compassion. Louise is a kind, patient and very knowledgeable teacher. She models what she teaches and I have learnt so much from being in her presence. I believe that Louise is changing the world with the work she is doing and that she is making the world a better place for us now and for future generations. Training with Louise is both an honour and a privilege."
