Hi! I’m Leigh, a 42 year old Australian Psychologist, an expat/immigrant in Barcelona since 2011, mama to a Third Culture Kid, and partner in an intercultural marriage.

I am the founder of  Therapy in Barcelona, and director of the Therapy in Barcelona space where an international team of collaborating therapists support Barcelona’s expat community. I also founded and created the Therapist in Barcelona online directory.

I’ve worked with many expats and immigrants from all over the world in the past 8 years in Barcelona, so I come to you with a deep knowledge, and first hand experience, of the challenges and rewards of expat life. 

My passion is helping Barcelona’s international community to learn the skills and strategies to cope with adversity and transitions, to find meaning, and to develop resilience and well being.

The breadth of my personal and professional experience enables me to work in a supportive and sensitive, yet professional and thorough manner with a diversity of clients presenting with a wide range of issues.

I look forward to collaborating with you to help you meet the challenges you face and on maximising your wellness.

Leigh Matthews
