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 ten years.  I am fully qualified and 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 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 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 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.

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 of counselling and psychotherapy.

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.

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 and group behaviour and spent a period of time studying on the Doctorate programme in Business Studies.
