"I was feeling low, didn't really like myself very much, yet I had lots going for me. A friend recommended Michael to me, I was a bit apprehensive but I Knew I had to do something. Michael is a very warm and welcoming professional and after a number of sessions I began to feel confident and content in myself. He gave me the tools or rather the tools I already had but didn't realise, and I will ensure I use them in my daily life. Thank you so much Michael". Signed; Teresa.

"I'm very impressed indeed ... thank you so much for your help"..enditalic Paul in Cavan.
"I found this to be a very positive experience with very positive results for me. The experience was un-intrusive and very much controlled by me. It was a relaxing experience allowing me to express myself at ease and that was non judgemental. I am now more in touch with my emotions and have a better ability to deal with them. I am much happier in my self and therefore able to view situations in a much more positive way. The skills I learned through this experience I can use on an ongoing basis. Michael Walsh himself was a warm gentle person who made me feel very comfortable. Many thanks."
"After attending a number of sessions with Michael I now view the world in a different way. I am now enjoying the loads of new and exciting opportunities which have been opened up to me. I would highly recommend this great professional service that Michael runs. Thank you Michael."
Signed; Colm, Cavan.
"Michael's approach was gentle but highly effective. EMDR allowed me to let go of past hurts in a way talk therapy had not offered me".
Signed; L. Patterson.
"I have enjoyed the experience finding it very calming and relaxing. I believe it has helped me put a lot of underlying issues from my past to bed and helped me move on with my life with confidence. My anxiety has all but disappeared since attending Michael".
"I would like to thank Michael and EMDR therapy for restoring peace and normality to my life. I experienced a traumatic event that left me with symptoms of PTSD and anxiety. Life was very difficult and fear took over. I could not focus and found I hand a dependency on alcohol. I tried cognitive behavioural therapy but it did not work. I really needed to get well as I have a family to look after. I did some research and found a BBC radio 4 programme describing EMDR. I decided to try it. I highly recommend Michael Walsh, he has a patient and calm demeanor. I found that within weeks of EMDR I saw a great improvement. I began to return to a calmer me, with none of the negative and fearful thoughts intruding on my life. The dependency on alcohol is completely gone and I no longer drink. EMDR works and has helped me enormously, I feel like I have my life back. I highly recommend Michael Walsh and EMDR".
"Even though I would have had reservations about hypnotherapy I decided to contact Michael. I am so glad I did - it was nothing like my vision of lying on a sofa and not being aware of what I was saying. I have benefited so much from working with Michael and I am very grateful for all his help".
Signed; Nikki Cavan.

Signed; "C" Cavan.
"I attended 8 sessions of hypnotherapy with Michael in 2016. I needed help dealing with anxiety, lack of confidence and putting some past issues from childhood and early adulthood to rest. It was truly a wonderful, calming, relaxing experience which allowed me to release my anxiety and let go of the deep rooted childhood and early adulthood issues. The most amazing thing was, through the hypnotherapy I was able to go back to my 4yr old self and give her a hug and tell her it was ok. This allowed me to let go of all of my fears and anxiety that have remained with me for such a long time. Don't underestimate what hypnotherapy can do for your mind, body and soul. I feel so much more happier, more confident and so much more positive and I can't recommend Michael highly enough. Amazing. Thank you".
Signed; M.C. Cavan.

Signed; S. Smith CMX.
"I sought help from Michael due to my reasonably extreme fear of flying. I come from a medical background and am usually quite sceptical of any form of alternative therapy. However I found Michael to be extremely professional and knowledgeable in his field. I immediately felt at ease with him and his lovely calm nature and felt from the outset that he would be of great assistance to me ... he has given me lifelong tools and techniques that could apply to any stressful or anxiety inducing situation. I couldn't recommend Michael highly enough."

Mindfulness & Meditation & Chakra Courses:
Mindfulness: I found the relaxation and mindfulness classes really great in day to day stress management..enditalic
Signed; John in Co Cavan.
Mindfulness: I was required to participate to take on a challenge to go within and see it all face to face. Unaware of the peace and quiet that was to come as the weeks progressed along. Meditation guided and thought me how to become more aware in my mind and the present moment now. I have gained great stillness within, peacefulness and comfort. I feel more energised, content, confident and at ease within myself. I have obtained more knowledge around decision making and Ive made more plans and set more goals to achieve and fulfil. The greatest gift of all was finding freedom within my soul and the powerful heart beat in the silence of it all.
Mindfulness: Very concise and easy to understand introduction to mindfulness and meditation. I would highly recommend Michael and this class to anyone wanting to find useful ways and practices to reduce stress in their lives and manage everyday life in a more present and pleasant way. Signed; Aoife McCabe.
Mindfulness: Make the time for yourself, invest this time in yourself to make a happier, less stressful environment for you and the people you love.
Signed; Claire Lynch.

From starting the classes I feel that I am able to manage stress in my life much better and as a result, I am feeling much more able to cope and my medication reduced as a result. I would highly recommend the classes with Michael.
Signed; Rachel Cavan.
Mindfulness: On the nights that I attended Michael's class I have slept so much better - More relaxed in myself.

Signed; Tom Fitz
Mindfulness; I have thoroughly enjoyed my mindfulness sessions and can not recommend Michael highly enough. I found my job very stressful at times and balancing it with caring for my toddler (often alone as my husband works shifts) over whelming at times. Now I've learnt to take a step back and to take the me time that I deserve. Learning to meditate on the breathe has really helped me to slow down my racing mind. I have learnt coping skills through this class and am as a result a calmer happier version of me.
Signed; Lydia McGovern
Mindfulness: "Michael has a calming nature with which he delivers an informative and invaluable class aimed at improving participants overall mental health and well being".
Mindfulness: I found the course very relaxing. It is time for oneself. Calmness and peaceful. I would recommend it.
Signed: Kathleen Conaty.
Mindfulness: Initially I will be honest I was a little hesitant on the starting of this course. After all isn't there so much talk on mindfulness, how much does it really help or how much could a 6 week course really offer. Was it going to be a necessity to continue into more courses. However after a very quick 6 weeks and with a sadness I write this. I have gained so much in the 6 weeks. I have equipped myself with sufficient knowledge and skill to help me in the ways I need to take time for my mind and myself. I would highly recommend the classes and the wide depth of material covered to all levels. 6 weeks is both sufficient and yet I would love a lot more.
Signed; Clodagh McArdle.
Mindfulness: The course is a great benefit to life in general, a lot of thought gone into it. The recordings supplied will be lasting benefits. Michael has a special talent in the mindfulness.

Signed: Kathleen Galligan.
Mindfulness; Michael has taught me skills and techniques that I can use daily to be more self aware. I would highly recommend this course. It really helped me to look inwards, to how I feel and to live in the present, not in the past or to worry about the future. I love my daily meditation and feel so much more relaxed and able to deal and respond to life's curve balls.
Signed; E. Smith.
Mindfulness; I found Michael's course to help me relax and take time for myself more, by doing some of the breathing exercises he introduced to us in the group I could take them home and use them in every day life. I am less stressed and cope a lot better in stressful situations now, where as before I would of let the situation get the better of me and lose my temper. Now a take a few moments and deep breaths and find my home calmer since starting the course. Signed; R. King

Signed; Maria Quinn.
