our team

International therapists who understand expats

Our therapists are psychology-trained, or equivalent, in their home countries, fluent English speakers, and, like you, have relocated at least once. They “get” you.

The key to successful therapy is the relationship

Life can be full of challenges and difficulties.

Facing them on your own may feel overwhelming

Yet seeking help is tough because it takes a great deal of courage to reach out in a challenging time

We know. 

That’s why we offer a brave, non-judgmental space where you are welcome just as you are.

Where caring professionals will help you explore and overcome issues and enhance your strengths.

At Therapy in Barcelona, we are committed to being no less than the therapists we would want to work with.
