Nick Totton

Nick Totton

Nick Totton is a psychotherapist, trainer and supervisor with 35 years’ experience. He originally trained as a neo-Reichian body psychotherapist, since when his approach has become broad based and open to the spontaneous and unexpected. He has spoken, taught and published widely on body psychotherapy, psychotherapy and politics, and ecopsychology. He established a training in his own synthesis, Embodied-Relational Therapy, which has been thriving for around 20 years; and more recently set up the related but distinct practice of Wild Therapy.

Both of these now continue without his hands-on involvement. His book Wild Therapy (one of 11 so far) is published by PCCS Books, Embodied Relating: The Ground of Psychotherapy by Karnac and Body Psychotherapy for the 21st Century by Confer Books. He has a grown-up daughter, lives in Cornwall with his partner and grows vegetables.
