Couple Therapy in Barcelona and online

To get out of the loop and of stuckness, to overcome the of crisis or  to clarify the doubts


I consulted you because I felt that my relationship was walking on thin ice and I wanted to struggle in order to put my trust in ourselves again. To be honest, I believed that most likely after the sessions we would split but friendly. The point was breaking up or renewing many of the habits we had installed and which we did not talk about from the bottom of our hearts. I have been able to appreciate the effort we make both of us to keep being together. I learned how to put in the person I love’s shoes. I recommend it with no doubts.

I like your way of approaching the things which unbalance the couple. Your ability of playing down everything in order to solve it. Your way of listening and of smiling, even of getting moved with our domestic problems. Ah! The emails you send are also very helpful.

You believed that, letting the time go by, things could go back to normal but you see that your relationship is at a standstill and it is even getting worse.


Your sexual life is not satisfactory and it seems like it’s not going to change.


The relationship with your in-laws is not good at all and this fact is unpleasant for your partner, it’s impossible for you both to find an agreement.


You are sure about what your sons/daughters need but your partner has a different opinion, in the meantime your kids are not fine and you don’t know what you can do.

We came because of we felt stuck in our couple’s crisis. I hoped that my husband would understand that in relationships not everything is black and white and that everyone is responsible for their actions. That what happened inside and outside the marriage depended on us and not on destiny. That the solution was not going to come on its own without making a decision. I have managed to make him see that it is he who has to take charge of his life and that he has to take action and make a commitment. We have also put on the table the couple’s problems that we had not detected and that in the short or long run could cause us problems. We are trying to correct them.


How do I know if we need Marriage Counseling?

In order to know when it’s about time to require professional help, you can orient yourself by the situations in you daily life when you turn to someone from outside for support. There are three assumptions when I suggest you to start a couple therapy in Barcelona or online:


When you have problems in your couple relationship even though you have been trying to fix it in different ways, but you are not able to make it yourselves. It’s clear for you that you want to keep staying together but you feel obstructed, in a dead-end street. This is a good moment to ask for help.


If you are not sure if you want to keep staying together or you want to split up, the marriage counseling can help you to analyze calmly your situation. The intervention of a professional can help you to talk about all the matters you can’t face at home, and to evaluate if you are truly willing to make changes and bet on your relationship.


Lastly, the couples therapy can also help you to get separated if you are not able to make the decision even though it’s evident for you that you are in a relationship with no future and that is hurting you.

This is what I offer you if you work with the maguet method

1 You will find a cozy place where you can express what happens to you, how you feel and what you need with no fear of being judged, criticized or attacked.
2 You will start to realize that there are different ways to approach what is happening to you which will shed light on your difficulties, and which will help you find out where you can find the exit.
3 Very soon you will notice little changes which will provide the home’s atmosphere with calmness and serenity and which will allow you to make decisions more peacefully and quietly.

This is the right time

to start your couple therapy in Barcelona or online.

Remember that 80% of people who start this kind of marriage therapy improve comparing to those who don’t ask for help.

I sought therapy to try to clarify my doubts regarding my marriage and a third person. When we came I had no expectations, I had never tried this before. We have been able to detect individual and couple mistakes and honestly I have been satisfied.


MAGUET method of Marriage Counseling is different

The therapy for couples usually restricted itself to the in-person sessions with the psychologist. I know that you need to change things as soon as possible because staying in a limiting situation makes you feel bad and it doesn’t let you enjoying your life. I also know that between a session and the next one you can make progress if I orient you and I offer you the material and the information you need. This is the reason why I created created my own method solution-oriented Marriage Couseling, that will help you to stop suffering, facing the problems you have, from different sides.

With me the Therapy has a beginning and an end and from the start we will establish the sessions’ planning so you can get organized in a better way.

The sessions are two week-long and both of you two will take part to the visits, that last one hour and a half. So you will not have the feeling that you could not go forward.

The therapy is intensive and shorter than it is in other places. The results come so fast because I know you need changing things as soon as possible and I don’t want your pain lasts more than necessary.

Maguet Method will help you find the tools you need to get away of the critical situation, stuckness and tension in your relationship

If you are considering couple therapy in Barcelona or online, Maybe you are asking yourself some of these questions…

What is couple therapy?

The therapy for couples is a kind of therapy that the specialist psychologist can practice, with the main aim of solving the difficulties you are facing in your couple relationship.

What is the therapy useful for?

The most ambitious objective of the couples therapy is helping you to hatch trust between one another. This trust you probably gave each other in other periods of the relationship. The trust that will make you feel that your relationship is strong, that you are friends again and that you can enjoy your sexual privacy.  This trust that allows you to know you rely on one another, that you have a mutual unconditional support. Definitely the point is being able to overcome the troubled phases to enjoy a healtier and happier relationship.

Esa confianza que os permite saber que contáis el uno con el otro, que tenéis un apoyo mutuo incondicional. En definitiva se trata de podáis superar las etapas turbulentas para disfrutar de una relación más saludable y más feliz.


When it’s necessary to seek couples therapy?

Anytime you feel blocked and you want to go forward, the support of a psychologist who is specialized in couples, can be key. Maybe you have a temporary problem or maybe you are facing a critical situation for a while. According to my experience, I know that as soon you start up as fast you can get rid of the hard times and take back your well-being.

What’s up if my partner doesn’t want to come?

It is something usual that one of the two is more convinced than the other one about the need of seeking professional support. I am aware that you build together your couple relationship and if both of you take part with common goals, it will be easier that you can make progress.

Anyway this doesn’t mean that only one is not able to trigger changes so, if your partner doesn’t want to come, don’t worry about that and start youself.

The most important point is do not letting go your concerns and start up to build the relationship you need.

Sin embargo esto no significa que uno solo no sea capaz de desencadenar cambios así que si tu pareja no quiere venir, no te preocupes y empieza tú. Lo importante es no dejar pasar tus inquietudes y ponerte en marcha para construir la relación que tú necesitas.

For whom is the couples therapy?

I work with heterosexual couples as well as with homosexual couples. I look after multicultural couples, couples with a big age gap, re-built couples who live or not with sons/daghter from former relationships, couples with long-distance relationships….  If what concerns you is your couple relationship and what you can do in order to make it stop being a source of pain, then you can work with me.


¿How many sessions are necessary?

According to my experience, I can tell you that we can deduce that if both of you are willing to turn little changes up, 12 sessions will be enough in order to produce relevant changes. Keeping in mind the fact that the sessions are biweekly,  this means a period which lasts about 6 months.

What do we do during the sessions?

For sure you have seen, more han once, some images of a psychological therapy in movies or in TV fiction. I don’t use a divan and my first goal is getting to know you more deeply.  This is why we will talk about what mostly makes you feel worried at this time and about how you have made the decision of searching for help. It will also be very important to find out what you have been trying so far in order to solve your differences with the aim of clarifying what did not work properly. With all this information we will be able to understand what is going on and we can start to seek new ways to face it.

Is the Marriage Counseling truly useful?

The several investigations we looked up, indicate to us that 80% of the couples who attend, are able to improve their level of satisfaction in their couple relationship, therefore the answer is yes.

Do you us to assess if couple therapy is for you?

When you book your first visit, you access a questionnaire that will allow us to prepare the first session. 

In this session you will be able to explain what is bothering you and the expectations you have about the therapy. 

IWith this information we will be able to evaluate if the Maguet Method can help you or not. If we see that it fits, we will give you more details of our proposal for your case.

If we see that it does not fit, we will explain why and we will also recommend the service or professional that we believe can help you the most in your situation. 

What will you achieve with the couples therapy?


Learn to communicate, listen and understand one another.


Leave the neverending stressing and little productive discussions behind.


Improve your empathy so you can put yourself in each other’s place.


Being able to bury the past for good and leave rencor and resentment behind.


Being able to solve the conflicts, negotiate and find agreements which are suitable for both of you.

Here’s a bit more about me…

Hi, I’m Patricia Maguet, clinical psychologist specializing on couples and family therapy.

I started studying psychology in 1987, motivated by the unhappiness caused by family problems. This is also why I decided to specialize professionally as a family and couples therapist.

30 years of professional experience that I have behind me, I have been able to see time and time again how healthy relationships and family relationships are synonymous with a life free of anguish, suffering, guilt…

The relationships you establish with those you care about most and of course with yourself are the key to feeling good. That’s why I think it’s worth helping you to enjoy your partner and family again.
