Ainara Leunda MBACP
Friends Meeting House
Fed up of feeling stressed, overwhelmed or lost in some way?
Want to feel good about yourself and your life?
A combination of Counselling and EFT (Emotional Freedom Techniques) can help you find a sense of balance and wellbeing.
Hi, my name is Ainara and I am a passionate and compassionate therapist who believes in the unlimited potential in humans for growth and happiness.
Sometimes, our days are clouded by stress, anxiety, depression and other emotions that prevent us from feeling fulfilled and happy. It could be that you are going through a specific life event, such as a relationship breakdown, a bereavement or a conflict at work or it may be that you have an overall feeling of dissatisfaction, confusion and or struggle.
I offer a non-judgemental and confidential space where you can process and make sense of whatever is going on in your life, externally and internally. I offer short and long term therapy that is tailored to your specific needs. By using a combination of talking therapy and EFT (tapping acupressure points with your fingertips) you will be able to release and let go of whatever is no longer serving you, emotionally or physically, and make space for positive change and wellbeing.
Please contact me by telephone or email to arrange an initial assessment session where we will discuss your specific needs, what brought you to therapy and if working together is the appropriate step forward.
