About Madeleine

Madeleine takes a broad-minded approach to meeting clients where they are, focusing on their experiences, goals and the circumstances which shape them.

Madeleine has a particular interest in working with women, parents, couples, and military personnel.

She is dedicated to maintaining evidence-based practice, including promoting weight neutral and body neutral principles. Madeleine has worked closely with individuals, families and the wider community in many capacities, and recognises the complex tapestry which underlies an individual’s goals, health and development.

She also utilises Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Motivational Interviewing (MI) and Solutions Focused Therapy.  Above all, Madeleine is dedicated to creating a safe, neutral, supportive environment in which individuals create progress.
