Mark has a natural gift in supporting men to open up to a fuller expression of who they are, alongside an ability to model masculine vulnerability from a place of empowerment, often inspiring other men to follow suit. He is approachable and offers a profound depth of holding in his work whether in the workshop setting or in his one-to-one client sessions. He brings a light touch and warm humour to all that he does.
Mark describes himself as “a recovering computer software salesman” He is deeply committed to self-discovery and to helping others to be the best that they can be. Mark is a father of two, one of whom he raised as a solo parent while navigating a successful career in the corporate world. In his early 50s he had the classic mid-life crisis and left the world he knew with a deep sense of disillusionment and emptiness, even though he was financially and materially very successful.

Mark runs the program of workshops for Men at EarthHeart as well as co-facilitating the couples work and the Thresholds gateway workshops with Jewels. Together with Jewels he holds the masculine axis of the daily running of EarthHeart and is passionate about their shared vision.
One to one sessions with Mark
Sessions are tailored to each individual man’s needs. After an initial session a collaborative decision is made in how best to go forward and what might best support him. Men may choose to commit to a series of 6 weekly sessions, or to monthly sessions to support a profound shift.
They are suitable for any man who is interested in exploring his inner world as a vehicle for change and self empowerment in his life. Rather than therapy, Mark offers a unique blend of different approaches rooted in years of training and his own life experience. As an elder, he is passionate about mentoring young men.
