Kenny took us through his childhood, early boxing career leading up to and culminating in his olympic silver medal in Bejing in 2008. However, post Bejing loneliness, isolation and anxiety took hold as he found himself ill equipped to deal with his exalted status, turning to alcohol to ease this transition.
Two years of alcohol abuse and mental health issues ensued and it was a visit to the graveyard with his mother that became the trigger to seek help with his addiction. This led Kenny down the road of education, sobriety and ultimately redemption to the point that he is now a practicing counseller in the areas of Abuse/Addiction, mental health and resilience to name but a few.
Tonights talk was incredibly candid (as only a boxer can be) and thought provoking. Several themes ran through most notably the pivotal influence of his mum at key times in his life, how elite sportspeople are more vulnerable to issues relating to anxiety, mental health and addiciton than most and above all how we are losing the art of good conversation as a form of therapy.
I know Kenny does a number of public speaking events. If you get a chance to catch him in your locality it is well worth it.
