Gold Coast's Pinniger Clinic
Where cutting-edge neuroscience meets depth psychotherapy.
Frequently Asked Question: Why is the Clinic named 'Pinniger'?
The clinic is named in memory of
Margaret Pinniger, who cultivated during her lifetime a deep interest
in Jungian Psychology and Buddhist meditation. She lived in the Blue Mountains west of Sydney, spending time with her beloved friend and garden designer Edna Walling, and her bequest was provided
to further psychotherapy in Australia.
All practitioners at the Pinniger Clinic share a recognition of the importance of spiritual dimensions, interpersonal relationships, mindfulness and inclusion of creative arts in therapy and the value of complementary medicine in comprehensive treatment of complex and borderline presentations.
