A network of qualified expat therapists who will support you on your journey in a foreign culture

Expats

Life and people are messy.

Add expat challenges 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.

Maybe...

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.

Relocating has turned sour?

Your life has become a frustrating grind or you are struggling to fill your days. You are homesick and feel lonely. It’s culture shock.

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 are 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.

Whatever the reason,
if you’re looking for help and would like to find an English-speaking 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 safe and comfortable space to journey towards healing, self-acceptance and empowerment.

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 therapist 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 (psychology-trained in her home country) will listen and understand your concerns and do her best to match you with the therapist who suits your needs.

Take a look at what clients say after seeing one of our therapists

I wanted to say thanks again for all your help this year. I started counselling not really expecting much, thinking that I wasn’t really ‘fixable’ but if I could just get a few coping strategies, that would be ok. You’ve given me plenty of these, and it’s helped more than I could have realised. So thank you!!

My time with this therapist has changed my life. It sounds like one of those statements that someone might make up to look good on a website or blog but this really is the case. I was literally saved from darkness and despair that was slowly consuming my soul, and I can't thank you enough for your patience and understanding and for giving me the tools to face my demons and what life throws at me every day. It's a work in progress and there is still much to do on my part, but myself and my family are grateful for all you do.

The past few months have been so wonderful…more than I could have hoped for. When I get the urge to be a “rescuer” I pause and reflect on the repercussions. I have become a great “helper” and occasionally DO say no. Even my husband commented today that things were now better than he could have possibly imagined. I now have my daughter back…. Life is wonderful! I have come to terms with my shortcomings and those closest to me still think I am okay despite the few “rough edges”. I cannot thank you enough for saving me from what could have been a disastrous path.

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.

Environment was non-judgmental. Assistance was practical and able to be implemented immediately. Gentle but firm. A life saver – literally. I really didn’t know what I wanted, I just knew I needed help. I had spent years [seeking help] with little real improvement. My therapist could see what I couldn’t and has helped me to find out what I needed and what I needed to do to achieve it. I have become a new person and I actually like that person. Others have noticed and are also happy.

Considering I would never have previously organised to speak with someone, the rapport and connecting I had with my therapist was better than I expected which made it easier for me to come back after the first session, and keep coming back. [I achieved] many changes, too many to list.

It's very good to know that she's there and is able to listen and understand my problems.

Working with my therapist has been amazing. She understands me and her methods are surprisingly good and fitting my personality.

Therapy with you has transformed my life and I am so grateful! I really valued our sessions. Thank you for always practicing non-judgment and reminding me to practice self-care. Truly, my relationships with others and myself have improved tenfold. I feel like I draw more meaning from experiences that would have irritated me, or gone unnoticed before. I look at situations that challenge me as opportunities for growth now, and I feel like I take more accountability for my actions.

Just by talking things over has already been a great help. Preparing for the sessions by reflecting on things and noting them down also helped. I also like the additional things you have offered, especially the positive psychology course and the links to watch videos about mindfulness. 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.

My therapist is great. She is professional, knowledgable and not afraid to ask the difficult questions that lead to meaningful progress.

Only had one session but feel like I already have a clear plan for tackling issues going forward with my therapist's help.

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 safe space where you can explore both shadow and light.
