Madeleine De Little


Dr. De Little is the recipient of the 2021 Canadian Counseling and Psychotherapy Counsellor Practitioner Award. She is a highly regarded psychotherapist who achieves extraordinary results. She has designed an approach that puts clients, without words, in touch with the deeply buried impact of past trauma through images created with figurines in the sand tray. Right brain to right brain psychotherapy and working in the metaphor bring about epigenetic change. Well-formulated process questions of the figurines based on the Satir Model give words to the newly emerging Self.

Dr. De Little teaches Neuroscience and the Satir Model in the Sand Tray (NSST)™ in Canada, China, Thailand, Singapore, Slovakia, the USA and the Czech Republic. She presents at international conferences and is a Senior Faculty Member of the Banmen Satir China Management Centre. She is a counsellor for the First Nations Health Authority and the Criminal Victims Assistance Program and a founding member of Playful Dyads, a group dedicated to bringing right brain to right brain practice to the forefront of modern psychotherapy.
