Hello and welcome! My name is Ainara and I am a compassionate BACP Accredited Counsellor, Emotional Freedom Techniques (EFT) Practitioner and a Life Coach offering sessions in English, Spanish and Basque.
If you are reading this, you might be feeling low, anxious, confused, having relationship difficulties or going through some struggles in life. I can help you. I have been supporting people in their journeys of self discovery and healing for many years. I went through some tough times in life, felt unworthy and lost but through the safety of therapy I was able to heal my past and empower myself to make different choices. I know that you can feel better too and I am here to support you in your journey.
I work with individuals who want to feel better but don't know how. I offer a professional, warm, safe and non- judgmental therapeutic space where you can be yourself fully. Call me for a quick chat over the phone or send me an email to book an initial introductory session where you can decide if I am the right therapist for you.
I know that seeking help can feel daunting but let me reassure you that I am a friendly professional that is here to support you in processing, understanding and releasing whatever is troubling you so that you can feel empowered to create positive change in your life. I offer long and short term therapy with sessions weekly, fortnightly or ad hock.

Registered / Accredited
Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.
British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy
BACP is one of the UK’s largest professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy. Therapists registered with the Association fall into a number of different membership categories such as Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP and Registered Member MBACP (Accred), each standing for different levels of training and experience. MBACP (Accred) and MBACP (Snr Accred) members have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by the Association.
Registered members can be found on the BACP Register, which was the first register to achieve Accredited Voluntary Register status issued by the Professional Standards Authority. Individual Members will have completed an appropriate counselling and/or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but will not appear on the BACP Register until they've progressed to Registered Member MBACP status.
All members are bound by a Code of Ethics & Practice and a Complaints Procedure. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.
