What People Say
Excellent - delivered through an online session to a large number of particpants, so much achieved in such a short time. The most useful part of the course was time to reflect and consider the content and then how i can use that to improve upon my own feelings and interpretation by others. The explanations of mindfulness and emotions were useful and the relaxation techniques which I know I'll find very useful when a stressful situation arises.
The facilitator was excellent. He remained calm throughout and was very knowledgeable about his subject area. The information given was very helpful and the session engaging. Tony is great - as always, very fair and inclusive. I hope that we will have more opportunities in the future to have similar training sessions,
I was unsure of what to expect when I started my sessions but working with Tony was a great experience. Tony reflects true professionalism, he is understanding, calm and patient. I did a few sessions online to start with followed by a few in-person sessions. Tony’s therapy room is tranquil, peaceful and a number of safety measures have been put in place to make it COVID-secure. Each session I had with Tony was specifically tailored for me with great attention to detail, care and thought. Tony was extremely supportive and encouraging during my sessions, he was always available to answer my questions and provide me with support when I needed it.
Tony is very thoughtful and personable. I found that he truly listened to the different problems I was struggling with and helped give me personalised advice and teachings. He genuinely cares about helping you, and enjoys seeing your successes. All the materials and exercises were easy to understand and follow. The meditations and hypnotherapy were personalised to certain teachings and different parts of the journey, they were all very relevant and very relaxing!
I decided to do the Mindful Eating Programme because I wanted to build a better relationship with food and movement. Ultimately, I wanted to lose weight, but I knew I had a few steps to get right before I could begin my journey. I picked the programme because I wanted it to be unique to me, and this programme offered me a blend of coaching, mindful practices and hypnotherapy. I'd practiced hypnotherapy before and knew this would be a good approach for me, but working with Tony gave me the experience unique to my specific goals.
I really wanted to lose weight. I stopped weighing myself a while ago because I had built a negative relationship with the number on the scales, and instead I've been keeping my measurements, and I definitely noticed that I lost weight through the programme. But more than that, I have a lot more mental resilience, I'm able to move my body and go outside without getting wrapped up in my own self-loathing. My mind feels less heavy and I'm able to focus easier on creative projects. I still want to continue losing weight, but I feel now that I have the tools to a better and healthier life.
I treated myself to five one-to-one monthly coaching/teaching sessions with Tony. I was experiencing one of the most challenging times of my life and wanted to develop my mindfulness practice, especially in regard to living with physical pain. Working with Tony has helped me to feel more grounded and given me more resources to hold onto my joy each day. I also feel far better equipped to use mindful practice in relation to pain. I feel very grateful.
I had a number of sessions of hypnotherapy with Tony. There were a lot of issues I needed help with, the biggest problem being terrible sleep for 12 years, waking up many times in the night. Tony was exceptional. He managed to help me process past worries and to see that I could take control to change my current patterns of thinking and action. I can't believe how much hypnotherapy has transformed my life. Thank you so much, Tony, for all your support and attention.
Before I came to do this course, I was rather desperate to find a way of managing my emotions, stress and anxiety issues. I found mindfulness to be the perfect tool for this. I am now beginning to feel a lot more together and find that Tony has enlightened me with an important knowledge that we are all entitled to. It’s now become a way of life for me . It can only get better from here. As a teacher of mindfulness, Tony is a natural. I can’t think of anyone who is more suited to it than he is.
I had the chance to have been treated by Tony for my spiders phobia. I have had this phobia since my childhood and it was very annoying in my everyday life. Everything I was doing, I was thinking first "will there be a spider?"... (Gardening, cleaning the house, going in the garage or in the loft)... After the first session with Tony everything changed instantly, the fear was gone! A couple more sessions helped me to be able to keep them alive and release them outdoor... I can't thank Tony enough for having changed my everyday life!!! Thank you for your amazing work and your kindness.
Excellent course by Mindful Me, it was led by Tony O’Shea-Poon with such skilfulness and knowledge – the benefits that Mindfulness can bring to any aspect of our daily lives. It has helped me to tap into the breath which is always there. I would highly recommend Tony as a Mindfulness Teacher, very knowledgeable and full of warmth and kindness.
Mindful Me ran a great session at our mental health event for young people. I was helping to host the event so felt very stressed under the pressure of the day but instantly, as soon as the session began, I felt all of my worries go away. I will be sure to use some of the calming techniques in the future. Thank you!
I attended the taster session last week and found it very helpful and enlightening , already I am using some of the techniques Tony showed us! I look forward to starting the Mindfullness course very soon!
The mindfulness course has empowered me to confidently sit with all my thoughts and be ok with them … for me, this is the beginning of the rest of my life ❤️🕊
Having tried a little meditation before this course, I felt I needed a little more explanation and encouragement to continue with mindfulness. This course did just that. Very well taught in a non judgemental way, I now have a greater understanding of mindfulness and meditation and have learnt so many useful skills to manage my anxiety and also met some lovely people along the way. Tony is a lovely person who taught this 4 week course beautifully.
I attended the four session mindfulness course which I found both interesting and very helpful in a practical way. Straightaway I felt I had some simple and effective ways to develop a calmer way to deal with life stresses. Tony is very accepting of everyone and leads the course and each practice with kindness, skill and humility. It is clear to see that Tony is passionate about mindfulness and about the benefits it can bring to everyone. The course organisation seemed effortless but as the information and reminders arrived in a timely way it is clear that everything is thoroughly planned to achieve maximum benefit. I would strongly recommend Tony’s training and mindfulness coaching.
I signed up for the course thinking it was going to be awkward and difficult, however, Tony made it so interesting, easy and since completing this course I find I have more meaning to life and make the most of every moment. I have awakened my senses. I have always been easily stressed and highly strung but since learning about Mindfulness I am learning to go right back to the moment and look for the good in that moment and learn what I am feeling. A very informative, helpful and enjoyable experience. The venue was absolutely perfect. Thank you
I found Tony to be an excellent teacher, calm, responsive and generally a good advert for the lived benefits of mindfulness! I found the meditation aspects of his course particularly beneficial, but I think there are lots of different practial elements he teaches that could help anybody in their everyday lives.
I recently attended Tony’s four week Mindfulness course and thoroughly enjoyed every minute of it. Tony’s delivery of the course was highly professional yet warm, friendly and open. I learnt a great deal and feel far better equipped to develop my meditation practice. In fact, the course was so inspiring I have enrolled on a Teacher’s Training course in order to become a Mindfulness Consultant. I highly recommend this course as it will give you invaluable tools for dealing with a busy life.
Tony is an excellent teacher. His delivery is both warm and clear. This and the pleasant venue, made it easy to take the tools and techniques on board. I have found the Course to have been of particular benefit with combatting seasonal low mood. However, I’m sure it will help anyone manage stress and understand their feelings better.
This course has enabled me to use mindfulness and meditation techniques when I need them the most. I now have a good knowledge of mindfulness and practical tips to help me to continue to apply these in my life. Tony offers a supportive and encouraging place to learn.
