Mark Wright Psychotherapy in Totnes, Devon


Welcome to my website. As a visitor, you may be giving serious thought to working with a therapist or counsellor, perhaps for the first time.

It's important to find someone who is a good match for you and for your particular concerns. It is also important to find a therapeutic approach that meets your needs.

For these reasons, I offer a free first meeting to help you decide about working with me and to learn more about my approach to psychotherapy.

How can psychotherapy help?

Working with a psychotherapist gives you a private and confidential space where you can explore all that is going on for you.

You can begin to explore your experience in an unpressured way, free from judgement, and begin to know yourself more deeply and more honestly.

Most fundamentally, this kind of creative inner work can provide a profound support for your journey through life, and for your development, growth and maturation as a person.

It is a way you can begin to bring all of yourself - heart and mind, body and soul - back together into a more harmonious whole. You can start to listen to the wisdom that is within you, however buried it may seem.

As a result, many people have found that working with a psychotherapist is a rich and life-changing experience, a journey that can sometimes be challenging and painful, but is often rewarding, and sometimes even magical.

"We delight in the beauty of the butterfly, but rarely admit the changes it has gone through to achieve that beauty."

About Mark Wright

I have been living in Devon since 2006, and have worked as a psychotherapist for the NHS, in private practice, and also, for four years, as a counsellor in a voluntary sector counselling service.

I now work as a therapist in private practice at the Nautilus Rooms in Totnes, in the heart of the South Hams.

I am accredited by the UKCP and hold a Masters degree in Core Process Psychotherapy, a body-centred psycho-spiritual psychotherapy.

I work with people interested in making the inner journey, both those starting out and those already committed to the work of inner change and personal development.

I have been exploring the world of depth psychotherapy for more than thirty years. I have an equally long-term commitment to spiritual practice and enquiry, and my approach to psychotherapy is informed by this. You can learn more about my background and training here.

What brings people to psychotherapy?

Some people want help from a therapist with their personal, relationship or work difficulties, including with common concerns such as irritability and anger, anxiety and panic, low mood and depression, or because they feel unhappy or overwhelmed without understanding why.

Others may have been through overwhelming or traumatic shocks and events, from any stage of life, which they need to address and heal.

People also come because they find themselves in periods of significant, demanding or unexpected change in their life, and they want help to navigate the changes.

Most fundamentally, people come to psychotherapy because of their need or wish to make their own personal inner journey towards greater self-awareness and maturity.

Whatever is bringing you, all that is needed to make good use of this work is some commitment to your own well-being, and some openness.

My approach, as a body-centred psycho-spiritual psychotherapist, will help you to slow down and to bring a more open curiosity and awareness to yourself and the inner felt sense of your experience.

Few people are used to doing this, but bringing attention to our inner experience (sometimes called mindfulness) is profoundly healing. All the evidence confirms this.

A Poem for the Winter

Ten thousand flowers in spring, the moon in autumn,
a cool breeze in summer, snow in winter.
If your mind isn't crowded with ten thousand things,
this is the best season of your life.
- Wu Men Hui-k'ai

"You do not belong to you. You belong to the universe".
- Buckminster Fuller

"Earth is where we all live. Earth sustains us. Earth allows us to be here temporarily. Like a good guest, we respect our host and all the beauty and bounty we are lucky to experience. We do no harm. And then we leave".
- From a post in a web discussion, quoted by Susan Murphy in her article The Koan Of The Earth, published in Spiritual Ecology.
