Psychotherapy is a form of Psychological treatment wherein the patient and clinician can have open discussions regarding the patient’s preoccupations. This process can help patients gain a better understanding of their difficulties, while being supported in their personal development.
At the heart of the therapeutic process is the therapeutic alliance between clinician and patient, for which Madeleine believes is of utmost importance. Accordingly, emphasis is placed on collaboration between clinician and patient, so that the patient is placed as the expert of his or her life, while the clinician serves as a guide.
Madeleine is proud to offer bilingual Psychology and Psychotherapy services to children, adolescents and adults.

Psychotherapy is an important and significant process, allowing patients to express and understand their thoughts and emotions in a safe and non-judgmental environment. This process is expected to provoke awareness within patients. This awareness is necessary for the subsequent change of perceptions, cognitions, and behaviours that follow, and which can help reduce the suffering of the individual and improve his or her quality of life.
