Sara Thompson FdSc MBACP Counsellor Wokingham & Finchampstead
The Grange Centre
24 Barkham Ride
Wokingham Therapy Clinic
49 Denmark Street
I am a fully qualified therapist and member of the British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists (BACP). With a colleague, I have set up Coach House Counselling using private therapy rooms in Wokingham and Barkham Ride, Finchampstead, offering one-to-one counselling and am available for both day and evening appointments. I cover a wide area including Camberley, Bracknell, Crowthorne, Wokingham and Reading.
I have experience working with teenagers and adults of all ages with a wide range of issues including anxiety, depression, relationship breakdowns, low self-esteem and many more.
My personal philosophy is that everyone is a unique, dynamic human being. In times of difficulty or stress, we tend to find coping strategies that become stuck in a unhealthy pattern. From the therapeutic relationship that is non-judgmental and empathetic, emerges a self-awareness and inner resourcefulness that brings growth and change. This in turn, allows us to reach our potential and lead a meaningful and fulfilling life.
As a qualified professional, I adhere to the BACP Ethical framework and it's values and principles.
