Hello, and thank you for visiting my website. My name is Kevin McCormack, and I am a professional Mental Health Peer Coach. An early school leaver of the 1980’s, I returned to education in my forties, graduating in 2015 from University College Cork with a Higher Diploma in Coaching & Coaching Psychology; and I furthered my education by completing the Level 8 Certificate Programme in Peer Support Practice at Atlantic Technological University (formerly GMIT). I am a certified New-code NLP Practitioner and Mindfulness & Meditation Teacher. I am also an ‘Expert by Experience’ when it comes to recovery from ill mental health, having lived experience of Bipolar II as well as anxiety and depression – which in my case stemmed from childhood trauma. I also spent several years as a service user within the HSE’s mental health services.
My purpose in life, (my ‘mission’, if you will), is to use my experience, insight and training to encourage, support and inspire everyone I work with – whether it be in person, online, over coffee or across the universe.
