Meet Colleen Kennedy

Colleen grew up in Westport, Co. Mayo, where her love of nature was nurtured by beautiful beaches and a wonderful landscape.

She travelled to many countries to gain experience in different healing modalities. It was in India and Nepal where she felt a great calling to work with people on a deeper level, and trained with several teachers in massage therapy.
When she returned to Ireland, she studied Herbal Medicine and Naturopathy with College of Naturopathic Medicine for 5 years.

Colleen now runs her practice from the Body and Mind Health Centre, Westport. She holds short courses in Herbal medicine and Naturopathic Health, and lectures part time with CNM in Galway.
