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

People come to psychotherapy with me for varied reasons. People come 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, family problems, addictions and stress related conditions.

Psychotherapy bears witness to harm done to the Psyche through injustice and discrimination to individuals, couples, families and groups; psychotherapy provides a confidential and safe place to explore and heal harm done; healing occurs in psychotherapy through a change in the individual’s psychological attitude, achieved with the help of the psychotherapist.

The individual who engages in psychotherapy will develop new and reflective ways of understanding, approaching and moving through their problems.

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.

My post qualification studies have been in three main areas: colonial/post-colonial psychology, cultural and transgenerational trauma and the intersection of spirituality and psychology, these are areas that I care deeply about and are all significant in my approach to psychotherapy treatment.

Prior to working as a psychotherapist, I worked in ‘the business world’ in management and consultancy roles. During this time, I completed a Masters degree (MBA) specialising in 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 psychotherapist in 2004.
