Psychotherapy ~ Redruth, Truro, Falmouth & Helston.


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

People enter therapy with me for help with a life crisis or important life transition. I work with individuals who experience anxiety, trauma, depression, low self-esteem, attachment difficulties or stress related conditions.

Psychotherapy will bear witness to harm done to the individual’s Psyche through injustice and/or discrimination. Psychotherapy provides a confidential and safe place to explore and heal where harm has been done. Healing occurs in psychotherapy through the change in the individual’s psychological attitude. The individual who engages in psychotherapy will develop new and reflective ways of understanding, approaching and moving through their life.

I undertook my post graduate trainings in psychotherapy at Regents College and the CCPE in London.  The psychotherapy trainings focussed on Psychodynamic, Analytical (Jungian) and Transpersonal approaches to psychotherapy.

My post qualification studies are 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 significantly involved in my approach to psychotherapy treatment.

I do not offer cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) or ‘person-centered’ counselling. Counsellors and CBT therapists can be found on the counselling directory.

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. I have also worked as a musician playing the guitar and mandolin.
