Corinne Urry MBACP
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;
- grief & bereavement
- career or lifestyle change
- Pregnancy difficulties
- 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 comfortable room with easy access by car in Desborough, Northamptonshire. Free parking is available and the room can have wheelchair access during daytime hours. Desborough is a small market town and within easy distance from Market Harborough, Kettering and Northampton.
Training, qualifications & experience
- Advanced Diploma Level 4 in Humanistic Counselling and completed training in CBT and Play therapy & CPCAB Diploma Level 5 in Psychotherapeutic counselling
- Postgraduate certificate qualification in Supervision endorsed by the BACP
- Advanced DBS check for working with children and vulnerable adults
- Bacp competencies and core skills working with children and young people.
I've been counselling for over 12 years and worked in various education settings, in agency and in private practice in Leicestershire and Northants. I have attended specialist training on trauma and attachment with Family Futures and the Child Mental Health Institute and continue to attend workshops around working with young people.
I also teach & facilitate CPCAB counselling and listening courses at a local college in Northants.
My most recent accredited training has been with the Foundation for Infant Loss and I have experience working in this field and recognise this is a sensitive issue for many to open up and speak about.
Early or late miscarriages and stillbirth can be distressing & devastating and you might find yourself experiencing all kinds of emotion that you didn't expect and it can be difficult to reach out and seek help. These experiences can have a knock on effect and change relationships with your partner, and extended family.
Future pregnancies can also be impacted and it can be very difficult to enjoy this time before the birth and afterwards as well. I have also worked with postnatal depression and trauma and talking about these feelings can help to know you do not have to go through this alone.

Other areas of counselling I deal with
I also work 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 or a chronic condition and those without a medical diagnosis.
You might want to enquire on behalf of your child and I am happy to meet with you to see if how I work will fit with what your looking for.
Depending on the age of the child or issue being discussed we can decide beforehand if they would like a parent present in the inital meeting or if they feel more comfortable attending one to one. After the first session I usually work with people one to one to help maintain confidentiality for the process. I have a waiting area available.
Please feel free to contact me to discuss the services I can offer and any queries or thoughts that you might have around seeking support or counselling. I can be contacted by mobile or emailed and I will do my best to return your call or email as soon as possible. I do have spaces available for those on lower incomes.
