Welcome to the 2020 Cor-kinetic mentorship. The events of this year have shown us that the face of therapy is changing and we must change with it or get left behind! We need new skills to for our the ‘new normal’ we are faced with. In today’s environment of excessive and many times overly complex information it can be hard to know what to trust and who to listen to.

Many people are worried about falling behind or being sucked in to the massive amount of pseudoscience that bombards us daily. So much of what we learned has been questioned and it is tough to know what is the right thing to do.

The Cor-Kinetic mentorship aims to give YOU the skills to navigate all this conflict, confusion and opinion as well as the application to the uncertain world of clinical practice. Learn to trust yourself rather than have to rely on someone else’s opinion.

The mentorship is much more than a weekend course that give a few things to do on Monday morning. It aims to help you understand many of the new concepts that we discuss in rehab but are never actually taught. We aim to equip you not just with knowledge but also how to apply these concepts to your patients with practical and educational strategies.

By improving your critical thinking and skills to understand research you can cut through the noise and be much more comfortable with the uncertainty that is presented daily in clinic. Combine this with a better understanding of modern biological, psychological and social concepts alongside communication skills and the latest knowledge and treatment for specific pathologies and you can start your journey to becoming a more complete modern clinician!

The best thing is you can do this alongside other clinicians who want and think in similar ways to yourself. The mentorship also connects people and harnesses knowledge from all over the world and there is always space and time to ask questions and bounce ideas around in a safe space. This is all presented in a way that aims to translate the often overly complex research into a simpler, more practical and accessible understanding. An advantage is you can do this in a structured way, at your own pace and time and from home, so no need to travel or spend money on accommodation.

  • Research methods
  • Modern Pain science concepts

The Cor-kinetic online mentorship is NOT a HOW TO guide to treat people in a special technique, neither is it a magic system or recipe guaranteed to get results. Its aim is to get you to flex your biggest muscle – YOUR BRAIN!

All of the components within the mentorship are, in our opinion, vital to successful treatment, rehab and training. Sometimes though they are NOT seen as the sexy side of it all. So our aim is to make the LESS SEXY STUFF, MORE SEXY.

We will deliver a diverse range of information, perhaps not always covered in depth on other courses, in a simple, fun and applicable way. This course is about navigating the evidence base we have associated with these subjects and having multiple ways of helping your patients and clients.

This is not about slick marketing or a fancy online platform. It is an opportunity, in a clinically relevant way, to explore key subjects relating to ALL therapists and indeed anyone who deals with the human body.

All the key educational resources supplied. There is no need to trawl through loads of papers as they are already at the click of a button.

New information will be available weekly on the Monday 12pm UK time.

  • Lecture format
  • Case study
  • Supplied reading & access to a huge library of research papers
  • Multi media tasks to consolidate learning
  • Crowd sharing case studies and exercise ideas
  • Each online lecture is between 5 and 30 minutes. This is designed to minimise boredom!!!!

You will get out what you put in! This will be an active process rather than just a passive one. Once completed you will receive a certificate to say you completed the program.

Here is what some 2018 students had to say about the mentorship:

"I have been on numerous weekend courses but I can honestly say the Online Mentorship Program is without doubt the best money I have spent on any course, in terms of how much I have learnt and how much it has influenced my practice. As a full-time physiotherapist, I find it a struggle keeping on top of the latest research, so having Ben point me in the right direction and guide me through the most relevant research has been invaluable. The presentations, given in Ben's inimitable style, are concise, very informative and easy to follow. The exercise ideas have also been fantastic and given me a vast array of tools to work with throughout the different stages of a patient's rehab. Overall, I would have no hesitation in recommending this course to anyone who considers themselves a modern, forward-thinking, evidence-based practitioner"

Matt Parselle Physio

"The Cor-kinetic Mentorship is by far the course with the most up to date content, in regards to rehabilitation and exercise within a BPS paradigm, I've ever had the pleasure to participate in. The information covered would be nothing short of overwhelming, if it wasn't so neatly structured and clearly presented. Ben Cormack tackles the vast and daunting task of digesting the most up-to-date, relevant research and lays it out very clearly. All while noting the possible pitfalls and caveats inherent to most research. I would love to have access to this information for nothing short of a year, to keep soaking in it and fortunately, Ben gives plenty of articles and reading that is covered in the presentations he gives.
Not only am I learning about the content that is covered, but also on how to present it so that it remains clear, well structured and a reference of value that will keep me coming back for more."

Eric Oullet - Osteopath

"Ben's mentorship program is excellent. He brings together a wide range of topics in the MSK world and condenses them into evidence-based modules in a way that is easily transferable to the clinic and that you simply couldn't do over a weekend seminar. Everyone will benefit from this course in their own way, but personally it took my communication skills to the next level and significantly increased my comfort and ability in managing more complex cases. If you're motivated to add value to your care and are willing to have some biases challenged along the way then this course is definitely for you."

Cornelius van de Wall, Doctor of chiropractic


I can't thank Ben Cormack enough for all the time & effort he put in to putting the Cor-Kinetic mentorship together. I learnt more through this than probably 90% of all the other CPD courses I have done over the last 12 years combined. 
So many 'uh-huh' 💡 moments (and also some 'oh shit' 🤦‍♀️moments - but having your biases challenged with current evidence is essential if you want to continue to improve as a practitioner)
There is an absolute tonne of bullshit-free content that is invaluable to any health professional regardless of stage of your career.
Has 100% improved every aspect of my clinical practice 

Talyisha Reeve - Podiatrist

 I did the course last year! A great course with a shit ton of content with not only papers, but also video. 

It challenges biases ! 
It challenges your critical thinking skills ! 
It challenges your reasoning skills! 

This course is great for personal trainers that want to develop a more professional way of thinking about in or around injuries and rehab. 

This course will help your career in a major way, I ensure you that it’s awesome!

Christer Fonnes Personal trainer

"The course has been extremely useful throughout, but especially the exercise ideas. As someone from a massage background this will be an invaluable addition to my toolbox to get my clients moving better. There course is well structured and each module has a good level of content whilst not taking too much time to digest. Ben’s no nonsense delivery makes the subjects accessible but there is plenty of additional content if you want to go deeper into each topic. I would thoroughly recommend the course

Andy Morgan Massage therapist

Having been a fan of Ben’s work for many years I signed up to the online mentorship. I am a personal trainer with a passion for helping people with pain and injury. To say I got value from this mentorship would be an understatement. I loved the way we didn’t only look at the science and research but also at how we can help people in a person-centred way by asking the right questions and understanding them better.

If you work with people in pain, then this is a must do mentorship. It will change the way you think about rehabilitation and help you stand out as one of the best in your field.

James Shireby – personal trainer

"The Mentorship Program has the ability to comprehensively improve how you analyse, approach and treat your patients. However, this course requires serious effort and commitment on the participant's behalf. If you are willing to keep your mind open and engage with Ben on complex topics you will find the 16-week course very rewarding"

Jules sing Physio

"A great program if you like to develop your clinical work. The material, videos and papers, is huge and potential for growth on many levels. I very much appreciated the possibility to study and engage from my own personal reference"

Magnus ringberg physio

Mission statement

I have run a live mentorship in the UK since 2011 and over the last 7 years have been joined by physio’s, chiropractors, osteopaths, sports therapists, sports rehabilitators, podiatrists, strength coaches & personal trainers.

The idea was always to bridge the gap between a weekend course and more formal education such as Msc masters degree that now costs an eye watering £9000 in the UK. Although more formal university education does provide a qualification it does not always provide up to date information.

The magic here is not really in the teaching such as the online lectures but really in actually doing some reading and learning tasks. This gives a much better understanding than just some guy telling you his opinion. This is often what’s lost on a weekend course.

The longer format also gives an opportunity to explore topics that are probably easier to digest in the comfort of your own home rather than a classroom struggling to concentrate, and yes I do notice that! Especially when it is some HEAVY science. These are often the topics that are really important, and in my opinion make or break the exercises we use and their effectiveness.

Being able to break them into small lectures to watch at your convenience is very effective. You can also explore them in more depth and watch multiple times as you are not constrained by time.

What have previous students said about the course?

"I would highly recommend the Cor-Kinetic mentorship programme.  Ben challenges the biomechanical and biomedical models with current evidence, exploring pain science and the positive effect of movement based therapy.  the programme is well structured allowing time to reflect on learning and its application to practice.

The programme is a great mix of practical sessions, seminars and self directed study. Ben's teaching style ensures a great environment for learning and the effort he has put into delivering online resources to facilitate your learning is exemplary.

The skills I have learnt via the mentorship programme have enabled me to feel more confident when discussing the concept of pain with patients, enhanced my reasoning on a variety clinical presentations and has increased my effectiveness as a practitioner.

Having now completed the mentorship programme, I continue to feel supported in my learning via the added bonus of the Mentorship community that Ben has created.

I would encourage any therapist or fitness professional to enrol on the mentorship programme" Chris Wilson -Physio

"As a Level 4 personal trainer I have a special interest in rehab and pain management. I’d followed Ben’s articles and attended the EMS course prior to enrolling on the Mentorship.

The programme has given me the knowledge and tools to create individual, evidence-based, fun and effective programmes for my clients to take them on a clear pathway from fearful and in pain (if required) to a more robust state of mind and body. Just as importantly the Mentorship has changed how I communicate with my clients. I can now help to reconceptualise my client’s painful experiences which builds confidence and increases adherence to their rehab programme leading to better results and a happy client.

Since attending the Mentorship programme I am a much more effective trainer and am becoming the go-to person in my club for helping with training and injury rehab and pain management among members and colleagues. I highly recommend the Mentorship programme for any trainer wishing to elevate their skills and knowledge above the average fitness professional" Norma Pearson - Personal trainer

"2016 mentorship for me was both enlightening and empowering. One of my favourite voltaire quotes - “Uncertainty is an uncomfortable condition, but certainty is a ridiculous one” - is very appropriate here. Be prepared to face the harsh truth of good science by someone truly leading in the field, if you can navigate the cognitive dissonance of unravelling the dogma relevant to you, you can only come out the other side a more rounded professional. There is something extremely endearing about someone talking with such clarity, such simplicity of a subject that is by nature very complicated - pain, movement & humans - I believe his cockney accent helps! :)

What has come out the other side of confusion for me is truly exciting, I have started an innovative bio-psycho-social preventative health company underpinned by a very solid evidence base significantly helped by my relationship here with Ben. 

Cor-Kinetic mentorship comes highly recommended for anyone interested in evidence-informed pain, movement & healthcare” Luke R. Davies - Chiropractor

"I cannot recommend the mentorship with Cor-Kinetic enough, it has been inspirational. Ben challenges current models and practices, he pushes boundaries of understanding and will expand your knowledge base exponentially. A blend of theory and practical sessions provide the learner with the knowledge to change their current practice in line with contemporary research. I now have the tools and methods to assess and screen my clients in a truly functional manner, as well as providing them with functional and progressive rehab exercises. This course is a must for all Therapists looking to stand out from the crowd" 

Karl – Sports therapist

"I work as a Strength and Conditioning Coach in the Surrey area and regularly look after the top junior 400m runners in the country as well as a host of junior golfers hoping to turn pro. My education prior to the Cor-kinetic Mentorship program was largely through my Sports Science degree and various other mentorship programs in America and Scandinavia. While I have certainly benefited from these mentorships I felt I still lacked an athlete-specific model for assessment and program design.

This is an area I know I have addressed and I am far more confident assessing and conditioning my athletes. Most specifically, the Cor-kinetic Mentorship Program has allowed me to be authentic in my movement preparation, and prehab program design for the individual between their explosive lifting patterns and/or strength complexes. I have realised that you can be so specific to the individual once you understand their movement patterns and the requirements of their sport. The Cor-kinetic Mentorship program has not only changed the direction I saw my self headed in initially it has changed my mindset and allowed me to become a more well rounded Strength and Conditioning Coach.

I think this program works for one very strong reason: Ben and his team are extremely focused on producing and equipping fellow practitioners with a very succinct skill set that they can use day to day during their sessions"

Neal Dinnan S & C Coach.

"I chose to do the mentorship after attending the introduction to functional assessment and training. I have a level 4 qualification in exercise for the management of back pain and felt that the two day course added a whole new dimension to my knowledge, as well as challenging my beliefs about the cause and management of back pain.

6 months on I am a completely different trainer. My knowledge and skill base has increased massively. I feel confident in assessing and working with clients with a wide range of postural, mobility and pain issues. Cor-Kinetic has taught me the importance of treating each client as an individual and never relying on a one-size-fits-all strategy. Most importantly I have been inspired to continue my learning.

Cor-Kinetic is unique as a training provider. While the mentorship is based around a clear and well defined structure, it also has an organic feel, developing and evolving to fit the needs of the students. Our questions and comments were always considered and often led to fascinating side discussions. Ben is also keen to discuss new information as he discovers it, proving that no mater how much you know there is always more to be learnt.

I highly recommend this mentorship to anyone who is serious about getting the most out of this industry"

Sarah Brown. Personal trainer.
