BACP Accredited Counsellor, EFT Practitioner & Life Coach

About me

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.

Member organisations

Registered / Accredited

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)

BACP is one of the UK’s leading professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy with around 60,000 members. The Association has several different categories of membership, including Student Member, Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP, Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Accred) and Senior Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Snr Acccred).

Registered and accredited members are listed on the BACP Register, which shows that they have demonstrated BACP’s recommended standards for training, proficiency and ethical practice. The BACP Register was the first register of psychological therapists to be accredited by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

Accredited and senior accredited membership are voluntary categories for members who choose to undertake a rigorous application and assessment process to demonstrate additional standards around practice, training and supervision.

Individual members will have completed an appropriate counselling or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but they won’t appear on the BACP Register until they've demonstrated that they meet the standards for registration. Student members are still in the process of completing their training.

All members are bound by the BACP Ethical Framework and a Professional Conduct Procedure.
