What are our clients saying?

Thanks for this service! Very glad I have found it.

I have found my therapy to be an incredibly positive experience. It has given me the space to work out lots of things in my life and I have felt very listened to and understood. I have methods to deal with problems in a way that I didn’t before.

I’m very happy with my therapy sessions with Anna. I would recommend anyone going through a rough time to seek out someone to speak to.

Great place and great therapists.

I really felt that the therapist was very very well prepared for all appointments and made extra effort with materials, follow up emails etc

I’m very happy to have found Therapy in Barcelona, and very satisfied with the overall offer and with my therapist. I have already recommended it to other people and would certainly do it again.

Mia was very professional and caring. She helped a great deal with my issues. I never felt judged and she was very understanding and sympathetic. Very pleased all round.

My time with Leigh has helped me a lot! Every time I came from a session I had such a big smile and felt really powerful and strong!

The therapy I’ve received has been excellent and much needed. A great find and a great relief to have someone like Leigh available to me in Barcelona.

Therapy has given me] better coping strategies, helped to explore triggers of anxiety/stress etc and helped me become more resilient. A source of non-judgemental support in difficult moments.

Loved your work. thank you for everything.

I would like to thank Leigh for everything. I don’t think I would have been able to accomplish this much without her help and guidance. From the very beginning, I felt very comfortable during our conversations. She has helped me so much, provided me so much new insights and I’m very grateful for it.

Leigh was someone I could talk to and felt completely safe with when I didn’t have anybody else to turn to. She is caring, intuitive, and steers you in the directions you need to go even if you don’t want to.

I feel the therapy is really helping me, I particularly like that with Daphne we are approaching the problem from many angles and also that we have done lots of exercises asides from just talking which is really beneficial.

Good service, very friendly and professional.

I will never forget my first session, how sad and hopeless I felt, and all the doubts I had, that therapy is not a bad or shameful thing to do. Each session was a relief and you taught me and shared so many things that I know I will always remember and will help me to face any difficulties. Thank you for listening and all your help.

Therapy in Barcelona has been invaluable. I’ve dipped into therapy in the past but this was the first time it’s really ‘clicked’ – I feel i’ve gained a better understanding of myself and developed some really useful strategies to cope with anxiety and depression along the way, and found it much more practical and immediate than other traditional talking therapy and CBT I tried in moments of crisis. I started seeing Leigh while living in Barcelona but have continued meeting over Skype since I moved abroad. Building a relationship and working on things over a longer period has been really beneficial, and absolutely worth every penny.

Anna is really helpful and it feels like we’ve spent the right amount of time on everything, eg. Mapping out reason for therapy, addressing different problems… I feel a lot more confident since I’ve started and I think this is down to the sessions.

Loved your work. Thank you for everything.

I recommend Therapy in Barcelona to everyone!

Thank you. I achieved the goals I set out to achieve with Leigh Matthews. She is easy to talk to, practical, gentle but firm and goes the extra mile. Most importantly, I am heaps better for having used this service. I now have lots of strategies to help me through challenging times.

"A person immersed in their familiar home culture is like a fish swimming in the sea-all is natural, predictable, and exactly as it should be. Only when the fish is taken from the water, or the person from their home culture, does it become clear that everything that was familiar and predictable and safe is gone, and all learning must begin again anew."
- Bill Drake Cultural Dimensions of Expatriate Life
