Welcome to Uralba Clinic

Helping you understand your life.

Building psychoanalytic capacity in the Northern Rivers

We feel strongly about the efficacy of psychoanalytic psychotherapy to help to assist the understanding of mental life.

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.


"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."


​This process of self discovery comes alive when we put our minds together. Emotional attunement allows for a deeper understanding of ourselves. As a consequence of this work we discover truth, peace and freedom.


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.

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.
