Brendan McCourt, Mental Skills Coach

Brendan McCourt Performance CoachBrendan McCourt is our mental skills coach and is a Master Practitioner in Neuro Linguistics, Hypnosis and Time Line Therapy. Brendan firmly believes in the mind body link and that where the mind goes the body follows, and furthermore that we all possess the resources we need to be the change we want to be. There is, however, a difference between ‘knowing what to do’ and ‘doing what you know’ which is where Brendan’s skills come in.

Success! Ticked every box!

Mourne Mountain Marathon… 19th out of 64 teams and 4th in the Vets category. Hit every control with good navigation on both days. Was calm and focused. No panic and was positive in everything I did. In the past there would have been more self doubt, I just stayed confident knowing that my training and skills would see me through.

I used Brendan’s NLP techniques throughout. Really pleased and thanks so much for your help and inspiration. It’s been a really good summer in terms of goals achieved. At last I can have a rest!
