We feel strongly about the efficacy of Psychoanalytic psychotherapy in the treatment of short and longer term mental health conditions.

Our focus is upon promoting the practice and teaching of psychoanalytic psychotherapy in the Northern Rivers region.

We provide therapeutic and supervisory services designed to assist in the building of a psychoanalytic capacity in the local community.

A link for more information about the Northern Rivers Psychoanalytic Study Group is being developed, please watch this space.

We provide one on one and group therapy, in addition to clinical supervision.

"Peace doesn't come from an external source or conquest,
but through our own courage.
The courage to cross our inner
thresholds, to become intimate with ourselves, our pain and fear."

Psychoanalysis provides a way of being helpful and interested in the intimate understanding of the self. Self knowledge is the only route to making life less disappointing, confusing and frightening. Psychoanalysis assists in the understanding of what causes our loneliness and pain which are not always obvious to us and can seem strange.

The analyst or therapist who employs Psychoanalysis and Psychoanalytic Psychotherapy is interested in people getting better. An analytic understanding can help to reduce the hold that obsessions and unproductive anxiety can have on our selves. We can become more capable of love and cooperation.
