Culturally Sensitive

As expats and immigrants, we understand your journey. You deserve a therapist who gets the challenges of living abroad.


Founded by an Australian immigrant in Barcelona, anchored to Spain by her Catalan family, Therapy in Barcelona has been here since 2011 and will continue to be here for years to come. 

Life can be messy.

Add expat problems and it can get even messier.

Everyone has their own way of dealing with emotions, thoughts, and issues. 

But at times they are overwhelming or you can get lost in them.


Relocating has turned sour?

Your life has become a frustrating grind or you’re struggling to fill your days. You’re homesick and feel lonely. Expat life is challenging. It’s culture shock. It’s ‘relocation depression.’

Moving to Barcelona has put a strain on your relationships?

You are drifting apart from your partner, your adolescent child feels “you’ve ruined their life” or your little one is having a hard time at school. 

You feel stuck in life?

You feel you’ve strayed from your path and lost direction, and you could use some help to get back on track. Or you’re finding it hard to pluck up the courage to change your job or your life.

An old trauma has bubbled up?

At the time, you might not have processed it or you buried it and now it has crept back up on you.  Anger, sadness or another strong emotion has resurfaced and you want to get rid of it.

Maybe there's something else making you unhappy...

Whatever the reason,
if you’re looking for counselling near you and would like to find an English-speaking therapist, or a couples therapy therapist, Therapy in Barcelona is your answer.

Our international team of psychology-trained therapists understand you because they’ve experienced life abroad. They know expats are often accomplished and unconventional with many strengths to celebrate and build on in therapy.

At Therapy in Barcelona, you will be able to face your feelings in a brave and comfortable space to journey towards healing, self-acceptance and empowerment.

We offer Cognitive Behavioural Therapy CBT, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy ACT, Internal Family Systems IFS, sex therapy, couples therapy, and many other types of English therapy tailored to your needs and goals.

At Therapy in Barcelona

all therapists are expats

They will understand you and help you navigate life’s challenges by offering sensitivity, time for self-exploration, and skills to build well-being.

Are you at a challenging moment in your life when filling in a form feels too much or too impersonal?

The key to the success of therapy is discovering the right match.

To find it, we need to be aware of your concerns, your goals, your language preferences and the type of therapy you may be looking for.

The intake form gathers this information and, based on it, we choose the best fit for you; a psychotherapist in Barcelona with the right speciality who may speak your preferred language.

To increase your chance of finding the right match and building a fruitful relationship, we offer you our free and no-obligation discovery call. 

Our Intake Coordinator will listen and understand your concerns and do her best to match you with the English speaking therapist who suits your needs.

When I got in touch with Therapy in Barcelona, I quickly received answers on my emails. I already picked a therapist I would like to work with from the various and detailed profiles on the website. I was advised on how well I would fit with this therapist and within a couple of days I had my first appointment... it was even possible to have them online. I really appreciated this option!
I think the recommended therapist is very on point for me. I can feel that we can relate in certain aspects and it does make it easier for me to share my feelings. It's my first time going to a therapy so I was a bit nervous but I felt good after the first session. The appointment process is smooth.
After only a couple of sessions I feel much better and happier. I want to become more self-confident and stable in my life. Already now, I see a lot of progress and a clear aim that both me and my therapist work towards to. Overall, I'm very happy and cannot say that I would like to change anything. I look forward to have more sessions just like the ones I had before. Thank you, guys!
Deciding to take therapy is a really personal, difficult decision and it's also a very good and welcoming first step towards becoming a better version of yourself. Therapy in Barcelona is highly recommended as they make sure you match with a therapist most suitable to work with you. The intake process is also really smooth :)

Not sure?

Do you feel therapy won’t help or is not for you? Or maybe you feel ashamed to ask for help?

We know it’s hard, but we believe help-seeking is a strength and we take pride in creating a brave space where you can explore anything you need to confidentially and without judgment.
