Approach to Therapy:
Madeline knows that attending therapy can be a nerve-wracking experience. Therefore, her first priority is to create a comfortable and welcoming environment in which her client feels safe to express their concerns. Madeline provides a counselling approach that is warm, non-judgemental, evidenced-based and tailored to suit the individual’s needs. She works collaboratively with her clients and values their input, ideas and feedback throughout the therapeutic process. Madeline also recognises the interconnectedness between mental, emotional, physical and social parts of the self and believes it is important to consider all of these factors when supporting her clients to improve their wellbeing.
Madeline delivers therapy from a Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT) framework, however she draws on other therapeutic frameworks to suit each client’s individual needs and goals. Some of these frameworks include Compassion Focused Therapy, Positive Psychology, Solution Focused Therapy and Mindfulness-Based Therapy.
Main Areas of Interest:
Madeline’s special interest areas include depression, anxiety, low self-esteem and self-worth, anger and stress management and adjustment difficulties. Madeline enjoys supporting her clients to develop self-care and self-compassion as well as to heal and to grow.
