MBSR COURSE HIGHLY RECOMMENDED

“I would highly recommend the 8 week MBSR course with Una Keeley. The simple strategies help to train the mind to focus and concentrate by bringing oneself back to the present moment resulting in a calm response to situations as opposed to an habitual reaction.  Una gently and kindly encouraged us to make mindfulness a daily habit.  The gradual build up of practice which involved mindful movement and body awareness has equipped me with tools to reduce stress and anxiety and increase concentration , awareness and mental clarity by being more present. This moment-to-moment awareness and daily practice has helped me to observe my thoughts and feelings in a non judgmental way. The practice of self compassion and compassion for others has enhanced my capacity for overall well-being.”

Sandy Power (Secondary School Teacher)

ABSOLUTELY INVALUABLE !!!

I found the 8 week mindfulness & meditation course with Una a fantastic and essential course for anyone who needs time out from a life of chaos or who just need to slow down. With the pressures of daily life at the moment we don’t look after ourselves at all and this course made me realise things about myself that I was doing automatically without thinking about them. I have learned to pause take stock of what I need from life. It’s been invaluable to me in learning how to manage stressful moments and change old habits. I am forever in your debt Una. Thank you so much and I will continue to practice. X

Gillian Haslam (Beauty Therapist)

HIGHEST PROFESSIONAL STANDARD BY AN EXCELLENT FACILITATOR !!!

I have recently completed the Mindfulness-Based stress reduction course with Una. I would highly recommend this course for everyone in all walks of like. This MBSR course is delivered to the highest professional standard by an excellent facilitator. It has given me an insight and awareness of my sense of self and sense of being in the present moment. It has equipped me with strategies and tools that will stay with me forever in the challenges of life today and tomorrow. Thank you Una.

Carmel Smyth (Palliative Care Nurse)

DEFINITELY RECOMMEND !!!

“I recently participated on Una Keeley’s 8 weeks mindfulness course through work. I didn’t know when I started the course if I’d like it and I have to say I really enjoyed the experience. I thought I understood what mindfulness meant but this gave me an even deeper sense of it and how to transfer that knowledge to my client base. I really am very grateful for the experience and would definitely recommend the course to anyone out there who wants to know more about it and how to live it in your life!! A very worthwhile experiential course!!”

Zoe Dixon ( Social Care worker / Family Therapist) 

HIGHLY RECOMMEND !!!

“I have just finished an 8wk course in Mindful Based Stress Reduction. (MBSR) with Una and seven other participants. This has been an enormous help to me dealing with Anxiety and low mood. Una is an inspirational facilitator and I would highly recommend this 8 week course. What you practice and learn will stay with you and help you in your day to day life.”

Mitzie Murphy (Psychotherapist )

HIGHLY RECOMMEND !!!

I thoroughly enjoyed the 8 week MBSR reduction course. I found it gave a great introduction to using mindfulness in your everyday life. The course was really well structured and great resources were provided. I would highly recommend this course to anyone trying to be more present and mindful in their day to day lives.

Jennifer Allen ( Secondary School Teacher )

FANTASTIC INSTRUCTOR, ETERNALLY GRATEFUL !!!

In short, Una’s MBSR course has changed the meaning of my life indefinitely. Una has been a fantastic instructor and has allowed me to go on a deep internal exploration of my mind, my emotions, my senses, my body and my soul. I cannot recommend this course highly enough because it has opened up a new world of applying mindfulness to every possible moment and living in full awareness. Without mindfulness, we are not living at all. And now after this course ? I am fully alive and stronger than ever. Thank you Una for transforming my quality of life. I will be eternally grateful.

Olive Power (Engineer)

HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS COURSE TO EVERYONE !!!

The MBSR course I have just completed with Una was wonderful. I attended in the hope that I would learn to manage stress a little better than I had. I am now doing this successfully and more. This course has had such a knock on effect in all areas of my life from over eating to other unhealthy coping strategies I was using to manage stress. I have implemented the meditation practice into my everyday life and will continue to do so. I highly recommend this course to everyone not just those struggling to deal with stress but anyone who wishes to live a more present, content life.

Erin Murphy ( SNA Secondary School Assistant)

 

THOROUGHLY RECOMMEND THIS COURSE WITH  UNA !!!

I thoroughly recommend the MBSR course and in particular, I would recommend the course with Una. She is a wonderfully experienced and intuitive facilitator and embodies the attributes that mindfulness espouses. The course is so well put together, and brings participants from the theory of why and how, to developing a daily practice. 

Claire O Donnell ( Primary School Teacher)

I HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS COURSE  !!!

I totally enjoyed the MBSR course with Una and our small intimate group. I would highly recommend this course to anyone, who is looking for positive changes within themselves and their relationships. For me, I discovered I was projecting my pain onto my partner, and that I hadn’t actually dealt with my past (which I genuinely thought I had). I learned I was being the victim, and through that I have learned to accept all my past experiences and become present to my emotions and thoughts, by becoming the observer of them, and by knowing I am not them. I love the body scan now ( I struggled with it for 4 weeks) but now I am catching myself when I start judging myself. The concept is so simple, but not easy to allow whatever is there to be there without judgement. Feeling into the sensations in the body, with a child like sense of curiosity, is transformational and I am so grateful for this method. Last but not least, there’s such ease in knowing with confidence, that our thoughts are part of our mindfulness meditation ‘practice’; becoming aware of them and then bringing our attention back to the breath or body part is, well it just is … Thank you Una
