Hi, I'm Andy McCormack and at ITS MY LIFE you will be working with me. I know that before trusting someone with the personal parts of your life then you need to know something about them...

I arrived in New Zealand in 2001 on my own, not knowing anyone and embarked on the most amazing journey of my life. Since arriving here I have been on a true voyage of discovery which has awakened my passion for life and people.

My Life

I have a blended family and have been with my partner for over 5 years. We have 5 children between us, which makes for a very busy household. Our children are of course all very different, we have one child who has high special needs - (Non verbal, low functioning Autism) and another who is Gender Fluid. These are 2 areas of interest for me and I am keen to support parents of children with similar challenges. To finish the family mix we have 3 cats and numerous tropical fish... we would also love a dog but not sure our busy household can accommodate that at the moment.  

My Work Experience

I have been in the Career Industry for over 25 years and been a counsellor for over 15 years.

I spent over 10 years working as a Recruitment/Executive Search Consultant and this has involved me recruiting for roles throughout the UK, Europe and more recently New Zealand. This has resulted in my viewing of many thousands of CV’s, interviewing hundreds of people and successfully placing a significant number of these people in their next job.

In 2003 I undertook a significant career change and am now focusing my energy into my  passion for life and people by establishing ITS MY LIFE . This has allowed me to make a positive impact on my clients lives through Counselling and Career Coaching. I am bound by the code of ethics as set out by the New Zealand Association of Counsellors (NZAC).
