Shirley Hicks is a somatic psychotherapist in private practice. She supports clients to safely reconnect with their body and their world through an intersubjective integration of body and story. Drawing from a range of somatic approaches, Shirley invites curiosity and exploration of an embodied, intersubjective relationship between client and therapist. She contributes to the Wellbeing Magazine and BUPA Healthy E-Newsletter. She is the co-founder of Trauma Sensitive Yoga Australia, an organisation which promotes the benefits of incorporating the body when working with trauma survivors. She also lectures at ACAP.
