About Madeleine

Please note Madeleine is a Provisional Psychologist and sessions with her do not attract Medicare or Private Health Fund rebates.

In both her personal and professional lives, Madeleine has had a wide range of experiences with individuals from diverse backgrounds. As a result, she takes a broad-minded approach, focusing on the experiences and goals of individuals, while reflecting on the circumstances and settings which shape them. 

In her life before psychology, Madeleine lived and worked internationally, managed tech start-up marketing teams, and worked with a children’s education charity. Additionally, having grown up in a military family, Madeleine’s background has provided her diverse perspectives. The insights she gained from such experiences furthered her passion for psychology and Madeleine ultimately recognised the impact individual support can have on families and communities. She is dedicated to working with clients as they develop toward their personal, and mental health goals. 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. As a result, she takes a broad, client directed approach to her role as Provisional Psychologist. 

How Madeleine might support you

Madeleine works with individuals, relationships and families at all ages and stages. She is passionate about working with women, families, couples, defence personnel and their families. Her interests also lie in supporting individuals with anxiety, depression, and other mood disorders, or those facing transitional life stages. She is dedicated to maintaining a weight neutrality in her practice, promoting and seeking resources around HAES (Health at Every Size) principles. 

Madeleine completed her Honours Thesis on the positive contributions of Australian minority groups, research which changed her perspective on support for individuals from diverse backgrounds. She works primarily with the Cognitive Behavioural approach, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, Mindfulness, Strengths Based strategies and other evidence-based therapies as appropriate for the individual. Above all, Madeleine is dedicated to creating a safe, neutral, supportive environment in which individuals create progress.
