Mark Newey: Media Profile
Over the last 17 years, Mark Newey has developed a genuinely transformational knowledge base that virtually nobody is aware of, but virtually everybody needs. He has used this knowledge over that period to empower nearly 3000 1-2-1 clients not only to beat Stress, Anxiety, Depression, Eating Disorders and Addictions, but to develop genuine Self Awareness and Self Esteem in order to live a more inspirational and fulfilling life. Mark learned by successfully beating his own mental breakdown without medication, training in the neurosciences and from each of his 3000 clients. His first book The Naked I. Authenticity: Be you, Be Happy released in November 2013 is already on it’s second print run. He is in the process of writing two further books: The Stress Manifesto, in which he fundamentally challenges the current thinking on Stress and provides genuine solutions, rather than the normal “Stress Management Techniques”. He is writing the third book Music Matters with Maxi Jazz, the front man of Faithless, the multi-million album selling Dance Band. Maxi’s Buddhist lyrics are completely inspirational and Mark is taking twelve of the band’s biggest tracks, extracting the Buddhist messages and putting them into a Self Development context.

91% of our mind is unconscious; therefore 91% of the way we create our reality, second by second, is unconscious. It is therefore essential that we understand how our Unconscious works. Many people don’t even know they have an unconscious mind and many others are afraid of it because they don’t understand it. However people are universally intrigued and quickly become curious. Mark has taken the complex workings of the Unconscious and simplified it through the development of two simple models: The Happiness Hierarchy © and The Mind Matrix ©. These models allow us to understand how the Unconscious works and what unconscious programmes each of us is running to create our reality. This information is completely empowering and genuinely gives people the opportunity to transform their lives. Mark is running seminars and workshops to spread this knowledge much wider; please see www.marknewey.com/workshops/. He is also aiming at two marketplaces, Businesses and Schools, which can make a real difference in the world with this knowledge and has developed inspirational initiatives aimed at each.
The Mark Newey Organisation (MNO) is a network of high street mental health clinics, staffed by therapists trained and accredited in The Mark Newey Method (MNM) ® and focussing on helping people beat stress, anxiety and depression. After his own breakdown in 1999, Mark Newey trained in NLP (Neuro-linguistic Programming), Coaching and Hypnotherapy and since 2000 has helped thousands of people beat stress, anxiety and depression. Thanks to his former corporate career, Mark is a powerfully motivational speaker and writer. He inspires instant trust, rapport and confidence.
With the help of Jane Douglas, a Master Trainer and developer of the first degree in NLP, Mark has created a dynamic training programme to train a very carefully selected group of therapists in his psychotherapy method.
Whilst we all know people in our lives who are struggling, the real mental health statistics are frightening, most of all for the younger generation, where self harm and suicide are rising sharply. As a result, mental health has at last risen up the agenda and is actually being talked about. Initiatives by Princes William and Harry and the Duchess of Kent, as well as increasing numbers of sports people and celebrities and speeches by Theresa May have brought mental health into the mainstream; the stigma associated with these problems is at last dropping.
The problem is that the medical establishment does not have a solution for these common mental health issues. The focus of the MNM is to beat stress, anxiety and depression, rather than managing or medicating them, which is the very limited standard medical approach.
The vision of the MNO is therefore nothing less than to revolutionise mental health provision. This vision is born of Mark’s personal experience, the experience of thousands of clients and continuous research over 17 years and has resulted in a 5 session programme which educates, nurtures, inspires and empowers the client to regain control of their life and take it in the direction they have identified will be more fulfilling and rewarding.
If your most important business asset was a machine, would you neglect it? Or would you maintain it and upgrade it whenever possible? Competitive Advantage is no longer in systems efficiency or even in information; it’s in People. Every single business process involves People; making decisions and taking action. People are an Organisations’ most important asset. But this very asset is as stressed, anxious, depressed and therefore as unproductive, as it’s ever been. In fact, 70% of UK workers find work life stressful (OPP Survey 2013) and 21% are thinking of quitting their job (OPP Survey 2013). The mental health issues from modern work- and life-styles result in huge costs to the Organisation in terms of Absenteeism, Presenteeism, Turnover and Recruitment Costs and to the Employee in terms of reduced Psychological Wellbeing (PWB). How does Work Revolution guarantee Employee Personal Development? Work Revolution’s work is grounded in the neurosciences and is applied in an individual personal context and in an organizational context. It is based on 14 years of clinical experience and research. The work is based around the 2 unique and proprietary Psychological Models. Please see www.workrevolution.co.uk for more details.
Many youngsters today feel they are walking into a moral and purposeless vacuum, where the relative security and established role models of previous generations have disappeared. The evidence of the need for change is in the currently unacceptable levels of teenage Suicide, Stress, Anxiety, Depression, Self Harm and Eating Disorders. Since the dawn of the formal education system hundreds of years ago, school has focussed solely on academic knowledge, leaving an essential gap in the curriculum and teachers with little time to teach children about life! Indeed, this has traditionally been seen as the role of the parents, who today, if we are honest, are struggling themselves!In today’s world a more holistic education is essential; our kids need to be empowered to analyse their world to understand how we think, how we create our reality, how we motivate ourselves, how to surround ourselves with healthy relationships, how to feel good about ourselves and how to take care of our mental and physical wellbeing. Life School is a social enterprise whose role is to collaborate with and enhance the current education system by providing a more holistic set of skills aimed at the children’s understanding of their personality, behaviour, wellbeing, of their real potential and what they stand for as individuals. Life’ School’s curriculum includes Authenticity, Wellbeing (dealing with Stress, Anxiety, Depression), Emotional Intelligence, Healthy Relationships, Purpose and Leadership. Life School will also explore critical issues within society such as drugs, self-harm, abuse at home and at work, equality, diversity, community. The programmes are delivered in schools through short lessons, extra curricular days and holiday boot camps. In addition Life School will be developing a Diploma and a Degree in Twenty First Century Leadership aimed at those who have left school and/or university but have yet to find a job. Leadership Academy would hope to attract guest speakers like Richard Branson, Jamie Oliver, Digby Jones, David Beckham and Andy Murray. Maxi Jazz of Faithless has already agreed to take part. The holistic skills taught by Life School will enhance an individual’s ability to integrate into society and business more easily. Life School graduates will be to equipped to get ahead in the world and act as role models and beacons of excellence to others around them at the same time, leading to essential society-wide change.
