Counselling & Psychotherapy ~ Redruth, Truro, Falmouth & Helston.


My name is Howard Tresidder Tonkin. I work as a counsellor and psychotherapist and have worked in private practice for over twelve years.  I am fully qualified and accredited with the United Kingdom Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP). I can be contacted at

People contact me for 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 for help in creating more meaning and purpose in their life.

I undertook my post graduate trainings in Counselling and Psychotherapy in London at Regents College and the Centre for Counselling and Psychotherapy Education (CCPE).  My trainings focussed on Psychodynamic, Analytical (Jungian) and Transpersonal approaches to psychotherapy and counselling.  My post qualification professional studies have been in the study and research of cultural and transgenerational trauma and the intersection of spirituality and psychology.

I work from a comfortable and peaceful consulting room in Redruth, which is easily accessible by car, bus and train from Truro, Falmouth, St Ives and Helston areas. There is free parking directly outside.

Details about the cost of counselling and psychotherapy can be found by clicking here, including information about lower cost and reduced fees for those who are unable to afford the full price.

Prior to working as a counsellor and a psychotherapist, I worked in ‘the business world’ in management and consultancy roles. During this time, I completed a Masters degree (MBA) specialising in organisation/group and leadership behaviour and spent a period of time studying on the Doctorate programme in Business Studies (DBA) before beginning my training as a counsellor and psychotherapist.
