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, self esteem or stress. People also come to therapy with me for help in creating a more meaningful and soulful life.

I have been trained both as a counsellor and a psychotherapist. 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.

My practice is based in a wood cabin surrounded by nature, woodland and fields. The location is less than 20 minutes drive from Helston, Falmouth, Redruth and Truro and is not accessible by public transport.

I have a post graduate diploma in Counselling and Psychotherapy and a Masters Degree (MBA) specialising in group and organisational behaviour.

My post qualification professional studies have been primarily in the areas of Analytical (Jungian) depth psychology and the study and research of cultural and transgenerational trauma. I am currently undertaking a PhD research degree through the Institute of Cornish Studies, researching the effects of historical trauma for present day Cornish identity, culture and social and economic conditions.
