Transition Coaching for Men Portland

Transition Coaching for Men Portland

Lost in transition?

Transitions are tough. 

Even when the transition is your own creation — an intentional change of role, gender or address, for example — transitions are unexplored territory, fraught with conflict and uncertainty.

This is especially true when the transition falls into your lap, unwanted. For example, you’ve been served divorce papers; or layoffs at work are imminent; or someone in your family is experiencing ill health or even death. In these and a thousand other scenarios, you suddenly feel out of control.

Naturally, you’re distracted.

Whether you’ve created the transition yourself or it’s come unexpectedly, your brain is overwhelmed. Your central nervous system goes into overdrive to protect you. But even when you try to stay focused, your anxiety kicks in, and you’re distracted by the humiliation you’ll feel if you fail. 

We suffer more in imagination than in reality. ~ Seneca

And you have failed in the past, of course. We all have. But the transition becomes even more overwhelming when you dwell on past failures. Why? Because when you dwell there, you’re not fully present here and now, which is the only place where you can actually win the game.

You must be present to win! ~ Alex Rodriquez

Get your head in the game!

You’re tempted to fake it. But you’re in unfamiliar territory, and it’s almost impossible to keep your head in the game on your own. Unless you get help soon, you will continue to hang back and avoid conflict, which will only put you further off balance. 

Get the skills and perspective you need to navigate this transition! There is no shame in asking for help. In fact, it’s a wise move. Get the intentional, skilled focus it takes to stay in the game right now, regardless of what happened yesterday or what may happen tomorrow.

I am your trusted guide for transitions.

Overcoming Gravity Men's Life Coaching Portland

Hi. My name is Mark Newton. If you’re a man in transition, you’ll love working with me here in Portland, or from wherever you are.

How can I be so sure?

First, because I’ve been through so many of these transitions myself — and lived to tell about it! I’m familiar with the territory. And also because I have danced with the Phantom of Failure so many times myself.

Through these experiences, I have become the expert for men in transition, skilled at helping you face your own inner turmoil honestly and courageously to genuinely rise above it through the power of clear, intentional focus. No more pretending.

And finally, because:

I am the only men’s transition coach with a business background in both architecture and building construction who also has over a decade of proven success coaching men through a wide array of personal and professional transitions. I know how to help you draft up a workable plan to move through this transition with grace and balance.

Work with me.

I’ll show you the tricks of the trade.

We will:

  • move quickly from concept to buildable blueprint.
  • build the transition from your blueprint.
  • use the right tools for the job.
  • enjoy the pleasure of personal success.
  • build your confidence for future transitions.

You’ll gain the confidence to:

  • articulate your feelings.
  • address the personal and interpersonal conflict inherent in any transition.
  • navigate the slings and arrows of outrageous fortune.
  • change the habits which weaken you and develop habits which give you power and control.
  • follow through with renewed vigor, lightness and freedom!

We won’t just talk about your field of dreams. We’ll build it quickly and efficiently with:

  • specific projects.
  • real deadlines, including incentive and penalty clauses to motivate you.
  • an agile, creative process proven successful for over a decade.

“Mark Newton is a phenomenal life coach. I’ve worked with other counselors and business coaches and Mark is best of the best. He is a great listener, expert guide for difficult life decisions, and encourages useful action to make forward momentum towards life goals. I can’t recommend him highly enough!” ~ Geoff B., Portland 

Your best option.

Unlike other coaches, I don’t offer a free introductory session. Why? Because I hate wasting time.

So I offer you a much better option:

Instead of fiddling around with a fifteen or thirty minute free session, I am offering to dive right into the work with you, right away and for one full hour.

And I guarantee that if you’re not completely satisfied with that first session, you won’t pay a dime.

Why? Because I am very good at what I do, and I care about you moving through this current inner turmoil. Let’s get to it!

And because with this approach, we can get straight to the work with no up-front financial risk to you.

A great value.

Consider this: Most coaches will offer you a 15 or 30 minute free session. Okay. So think about the value of free. You get what you pay for! What you’ll likely get in that short, free session is either a hard sell or a coach who is not yet fully in engaged because they don’t know if you are going to buy what they are selling. 

In contrast, I offer you a complete workout as if you were already a paying customer. In other words, we get right into the work, and then you get to decide whether you want to engage fully and keep going. 

Let’s do a little fear setting around this. What’s the worst that could happen? You could get into my studio or onto a phone call with me and decide that my approach is not right for you. You might feel trapped.

I hate feeling trapped. I would never do that to you. So — When we get together, if you’re not feeling fully engaged with what we’re doing, you can simply say something like, “Hey, Mark. Thanks. I appreciate what you’re trying to do, but this isn’t for me.” And I will thank you for your time and we will go our separate ways. So the risk of feeling trapped or wasting your time is very minimal.

But if, on the other hand, you experience exactly what you’ve been looking for working with me, we’ve already launched, and are fully engaged with the work.

Don’t waste another day!

If what I’m offering sounds like what you’re looking for, don’t wait! Book a session right now. You’ll find more details when you click the button below, before making any further commitment.

And — if you have questions before you book, that’s perfectly fine, too. Feel free to contact me here with any and all questions. I’m available in person here in Portland, and also by phone from wherever you are.
