Made soup last night using root vegetables and chicken stock. Bunged in some pearl barley, brought to boil and turned it off as it was getting late and I thought I would just finish cooking this morning .... getting a bit anxious that this might not be safe.

Can anyone enlighten me please?

It's fine. I often do similar at night but not cook at all, and then turn on the slow cooker the next morning.
