Hi I'm Corinne, Counselling in a calm and comfortable space so you can talk openly and freely about the issues that matter. I am a qualified Person centred BACP registered therapist. I work alongside you in a way that is confidential, respectful, caring, empathic and professional.
I hope you find my approach warm, relaxed and open so you feel safe enough to share the feelings and concerns that you want to explore.
Person centred counselling allows you the chance to lead the process, and talk through your concerns. I appreciate that it can be difficult to approach a counsellor and make that contact, and talk about intimate or conflicting feelings. I offer face to face counselling sessions, but welcome communication by phone or email prior to the first session to help lessen any feelings of anxiety.
In our first session I believe it is important that we can talk about how to work together and how the sessions can move forward at your pace. I often ask what you hope to gain from counselling.
I offer time and space to work with you through particular issues or to talk through an aspect of your life to gain further insight on your situation and choices.
I have worked with a wide range of issues including;
- career or lifestyle change
- relationship issues
- traumatic experiences
- cross cultural issues
- feeling your life or relationship is at a crossroads
- Feeling you would like to talk with someone
From experience many people have several areas they would like to look at in counselling and the Person centred approach can help with this as you can talk about whatever you feel is relevant.
I have worked with individuals of all ages and diversity, adults, children and young people.
I'm currently in private practice and work from a spacious and comfortable room with easy access by car or from the town centre of Market Harborough, Leicestershire and Desborough, Northamptonshire. The room in Desborough can have wheelchair access during daytime hours.

Other areas of counselling I deal with
I also have worked with children and young people, using play therapy or CBT (Cognitive Behaviour Therapy) exercises or techniques to help engage them to talk about their feelings or worries. Using play or activities sometimes helps to lessen the anxiety or pressure to talk directly about a challenging issue and this approach can help to rethink responses.
I have experience of working with families, individuals and siblings affected by a disability and/or Autism, rare genetic disorders and those without a medical diagnosis.
