My name is Leigh Matthews (1977), I am a registered Psychologist with almost 10 years experience as a Psychologist and Supervisor of psychologists-in-training.

I provide adult, English speaking individuals with a range of strategies that aim to reduce distress and to enhance and promote emotional wellbeing. I use a short term, practical and collaborative approach. I combine brief, solution-focused, cognitive-behavioural and mindfulness approaches. I specialize in:

  • Depression
  • Anxiety
  • Stress Management
  • Relationship and Communication Issues
  • Adjustment to major life changes including unemployment, parenting, retirement, diagnosis with chronic or terminal illness and grief and loss and offer counselling and support for family members who have been affected.

I hold a first class honours in Psychology from the University of Sydney School of Psychology in Australia, a Postgraduate Certificate in Psychological Practice from the Australian College of Applied Psychology (ACAP), full registration with the Australian Health Practitioner Regulation Agency (AHPRA) and full membership with the Australian Psychological Society.

I am a Psychologist but am taking the title of Psychotherapist in Barcelona until I complete the long process of recognition of my Australian Psychology qualifications in Spain.

“The breadth of my 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. My passion is helping adults find ways to cope with adversity and to live, communicate, act and think in ways that promote wellbeing. I look forward to collaborating with you on meeting the challenges you face and on maximising your wellbeing.”
