PhD; AHPRA Div 1 RN & member ACMHN
Belinda Mackie is a psychoanalyst in private practice based in Melbourne and the Macedon Ranges north of Melbourne.
Psychoanalysis is known as a talking therapy and can be thought of as a response to suffering thats part of the human condition. Therefore it is applicable to almost anyone who wishes to undertake the work with some modification in certain cases depending on the individual. Belinda’s clinical practice is based on a comprehensive post-graduate training that consists of the personal experience of psychoanalysis, supervised clinical experience and rigorous studies in psychoanalytic theory and practice. The foundations of her practice as a psychoanalyst are found in theory derived from the works of Sigmund Freud, Jacques Lacan and others.
Belinda is registered as a practicing psychoanalyst with the Australian Centre for Psychoanalysis (ACP) and has worked in both private and public mental health settings for thirty years. She is also registered with the Australian Health Practitioner Regulation Agency
(AHPRA). She frequently presents lectures, papers and seminars on clinical and theoretical issues at the ACP and elsewhere and has published various articles on psychoanalytic themes. Her first book on psychoanalysis in institutional settings was based on her PhD thesis and published by Karnac (Routledge) in 2016 and as an ebook by Taylor & Francis. Her recent book The Good NO is available online at the Inspiring Book Shop or make contact for details.

The rule proposed to the patient in analysis allows him to advance in an intentionality that is blind to any other purpose than that of freeing him from suffering or ignorance of whose very limits he is unaware.
