Madeline Anderson
Registered Psychologist
                

Client Groups: Adolescents 12+, Young Adults and Adults  

        

 

Madeline completed the Master of Clinical Psychology at The University of Tasmania. She  has experience working with children through to older adults across a variety of settings, including: community mental health, psychiatric hospitals, schools, and youth services.

 

She has special interest in the assessment and treatment of emotional dysregulation, perinatal difficulties, sleep concerns, and in working with adolescents and their parents.

 

She uses a person-centred and warm approach, helping clients to feel safe and supported.

 

Madeline adheres to an evidence-based model of practice. That is:

“The psychologist is an expert on the research, and the client is an expert on themselves.
Therapy is the space where these two meet.”

 

With this approach, Madeline works collaboratively, often using creativity to tailor interventions. Her overall aim is to help clients alleviate distress and improve their overall quality of life.
