Psychotherapy – Helston, Truro, Falmouth, Penzance

My name is Howard Tresidder Tonkin. I work as a psychotherapist and I am accredited with the United Kingdom Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP), I have worked as a psychotherapist for over fourteen years. I work in the consulting room, outdoors in nature (eco-psychology) and online (via Skype or Zoom) .

I can be contacted at

I work with adults in the areas of anxiety, trauma, depression, bereavement, stress related conditions and low self-esteem.

A lot of the work I do is with people who have experienced a significant break in their childhood attachment relationship to parent/guardian, this can include bereavement, abandonment, childhood abuse and/or a childhood lived in boarding school. I work a lot  with ‘high functioning’ individuals and also in the area of spiritual and religious trauma.

Psychotherapy can be extremely helpful if you:

  • can reflect on your life experiences
  • are able to look at yourself through self examination
  • recognise that you are now at least partly responsible for the problems in your life
  • have a serious motivation for change in your life

My post-graduate psychotherapy trainings focussed on psychodynamic, analytical (Jungian) and transpersonal approaches to psychotherapy.  I have trained in the study of dreams and their relationship and importance to psychological and spiritual health for over fourteen years. My post qualification professional studies (CPD) are in three main areas: colonial/post-colonial psychology, individual & cultural transgenerational trauma and the relationship of spirituality and mental health. 

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 leadership behaviour and organisational complexity from a psychodynamic perspective, I spent a period of time studying on the Doctorate programme in Business Studies (DBA) before transitioning my studies to psychotherapy.

I am also an active musician predominantly playing the Irish Bouzouki and have also worked as a guitarist for many years. I have done a lot of psychotherapy work with musicians and artists.
