Madeleine strives to provide Psychological services to individuals who may be suffering, and accompany them in their journey to developing and achieving their full potential.
Madeleine is a private practice in Psychology and Psychotherapy, founded on the values of respect, diversity, and compassion. Madeleine utilizes an integrative approach, based on the theoretical orientation of Psychodynamic, Cognitive-Behavioural, and Humanistic Psychotherapy.
Inspired by the novel titled ‘In Search of lost time’ by author Marcel Proust, the name Madeleine stems from the expression of the ‘’Madeleine de Proust’’. The narrator of the story is transported back into memories of his childhood while savouring a little tea cake in the shape of a seashell, also known as the madeleine. In the spirit of the imagery evoked by the novel, Madeleine Psychology and Psychotherapy works in collaboration with the person to begin to uncover and reshape deep-rooted and at times painful memories in a safe and non-judgemental environment.
Madeleine offers services in both official languages (French and English), and incorporates a multicultural approach which aims at enriching the understanding of the subtelties of culture within Psychotherapy.
Lastly, Madeleine aims to work in collaboration with other health professionals involved in the patient’s care, in an effort to ensure the best quality services and an effective treatment plan.
