Counselling & Psychotherapy near Truro, Falmouth, Redruth & Helston


My name is Howard Tresidder Tonkin. I am a fully qualified and experienced counsellor and psychotherapist, accredited with the United Kingdom Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP).

People contact me for many and varied reasons. People come to therapy for help through a crisis or an important life transition. Some people want help with specific areas, such as, depression, personality difficulties, anxiety, trauma, low confidence, self esteem or stress. People also come to therapy to help develop meaning, purpose and a deeper sense of freedom within their life.

My trainings enable me to work with a number of different therapeutic modalities.  I am able to incorporate a variety of therapeutic technique, theory and process to my work, in order to ensure that the therapy is suited to each individual’s unique and specific needs.

I have a post graduate diploma in Counselling and Psychotherapy and a Masters Degree (MBA) specialising in group and organisational behaviour. My post qualification continuing professional development has predominantly been in the areas of analytical (Jungian) depth psychology, cultural history and the study of transgenerational trauma. I am currently undertaking a PhD research degree in the study of Cornish history and identity.

My consulting room is based in a rural location, within easy reach of Falmouth, Truro, Redruth and Helston.
