Ainara Leunda MBACP Individual and Couple Counsellor
Due to the current COVID-19 situation, during these uncertain times, I am offering sessions via telephone, Zoom, Skype & other online platforms. Low cost sessions are available for those in need. Please reach out if you need support.
Hello and welcome. My name is Ainara and I am a passionate and compassionate integrative therapist that loves supporting people overcome their struggles in life.
Are you feeling anxious, overwhelmed, stressed or lost in some way? Does the idea of living a peaceful and happy life seem out of reach? Are there specific issues troubling you? Perhaps your relationship is in trouble, maybe your job is making you miserable or you might be struggling with past trauma, feelings of failure or not feeling good enough.
The fact that you are reading this right now shows that you are ready for healing and change. The idea of embarking in therapy can be scary but I can assure you that I have supported many individuals and couples in their journeys of creating happier lives.
I am trained and qualified in a variety of therapeutic approaches, such us Person Centred Counselling, Emotional Freedom Techniques (EFT), Conscious Relationships, Coaching, Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP) and Psychosensory techniques (Psy-Tap). Over the years I have built the knowledge and skills to support and help you in overcoming whatever may be troubling you.
A first step taken by many is either a quick chat over the phone or an email to book an initial introductory session where you can decide if I am the right therapist for you to work with.
I know that reaching out to a professional can be daunting but I can 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.
I look forward to assisting you on your journey.

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.
Accredited register membership

The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).
