Hi, I am Mark Newey, an expert in practical neuro-science. For 17 years, I have been helping clients eliminate stress, anxiety and depression. I know I can help you because I have been where you are now.
Learning to beat my own debilitating stress, anxiety and depression has given me the inspiration for my life’s work. You see I thought I had it all…and then the bubble burst. I almost lost EVERYTHING!
If you had been with me 36 years ago, you would have seen a successful student with good academic results, getting my A Levels, graduating with a 2:1 degree in International Studies and receiving 6 great corporate job offers before even graduating. Within a further 2 years I was awarded an M.B.A. I also excelled on the sports field, including playing rugby for a club side at senior level and on the ski slopes. I had the perfect life.
And by the way, I am not telling you this to impress you. I am telling you because I thought I had it all, I thought it was the perfect life, I thought it would bring me happiness. Over the next 10 years, you would see me climbing the corporate ladder of household name organisations – the top of range BMW company car, the unlimited expense account, constantly travelling across the world.
The problem was, probably like you, I was doing what was expected of me… by my teachers, by my parents by my boss, by society itself. I had it all, or at least I thought I had…until I realised that I was rarely at home, missing essential quality time with my family; worse still, I was not around for a lot of my 3 daughters’ lives.
I didn’t know it at the time, but I was suffering from stress, anxiety and depression. To cope I ate unhealthily and irregularly, drank way too much coffee to keep myself awake and then numbed myself with alcohol at the end of the day. I wasn’t sleeping or exercising. Does this sound familiar? I was telling myself: ”Mark, you have to cope, You can cope, you must to cope.” The truth is, I was not coping at all. I started to burn out.
Then the bombshell: I was made redundant in a way that would be constructive dismissal today. I then set up my own business, which took off like a rocket, going from 2 employees to 19 in just 14 months. One morning, I came into the office to a fax that terminated a major contract, without any of the obligatory notice period.
My business crashed within 3 months…and so did I. I literally crashed and burned with the business. The burnout turned into a breakdown. I knew I could go and see the doctor and be put on medication. But somehow even then, I knew that wasn’t the solution.
I wanted to know how I was creating this mess, because I knew that the problem wasn’t out there, it was in here (point to mind). So, I started to read books and scientific papers on the brain and the more I read, the more I realised I could find my own solution and take control of my life. So, I went on to train in the neuro-sciences and self-development acquiring top level qualifications. While doing so, I quickly learned something even greater. I could empower others to do the same. And so began my life’s purpose.
I set up my own psychotherapy practice and since then I’ve helped nearly 3000 people beat stress anxiety and depression, as well as coping mechanisms like eating disorders, fears and phobias and addictions. I educate people to understand their problems and gain the awareness and self-empowerment to go out and make the necessary changes in their lives.
And here’s something really important, 97% of my clients are referrals or recommendations from past clients. They are telling me that what I do really works and so clients want me to help people they care about. For the last 2 years, more and more of my clients have been saying: “Mark, your work is life-changing: you’ve got to get this teaching out to a wider audience”.
I developed the Mark Newey Method to spread the message via workshops, seminars and conferences, talks in schools and within companies too. Since then my message has been refined and now that mental health is at last rising up the social agenda, I want to take it to another level. I want to get this genuinely life-changing learning out as far and wide as possible and empower millions of people to beat stress, anxiety and depression, because I fundamentally believe these modern epidemics can be wiped out in a generation.
