Psychologist Cynthia Hickman has worked as a counsellor and psychotherapist with individuals and couples for over twenty years in both private practice and community settings. She brings an holistic focus to her counselling practice, working with the body, mind, emotions and soul. This integrated approach to therapy allows people to unfold their issues in a way that fosters wisdom and depth while still being grounded and practical.

Working as a psychologist Cynthia Hickman has also run regular relationship seminars, personal growth workshops and women’s seminars. She is an experienced freelance writer contributing to mainstream magazines and newspapers.

A well-respected public speaker Cynthia presents on issues related to wellbeing and relationships as well as contributing to radio and television interviews on these topics.

Cynthia also brings her breadth of experience to writing and presenting for counseling students and supervising other psychologists.

Cynthia begins her work from the premise that love is the foundation for wellbeing in life. She therefore assists people to connect with the true source of love within their own inner being so they can begin to access their own wisdom and can develop compassion for themselves and others. In this way individual work becomes community work as people become truly able to participate in and contribute fully to the wellbeing of society as a whole.

Her first book Return to the Soul is now available online and at Readings Bookstores in Melbourne.
