Felicity de Blic


Felicity completed her physiotherapy degree at the University of Sydney, and went on to complete a Graduate Diploma of Psychological Studies at the University of Queensland. She has a special interest in how stress and psychological health impact physical health, and equally how exercise and relaxation practices can improve mental and emotional wellbeing.Felicity offers mindful movement, breath, mindfulness and deep relaxation practices to compliment physio treatment for clients wishing to explore more directly the role stress and tension may be playing in their symptoms, as well as clients with primary mental health concerns interested in a body-based approach. She is experienced in working with clients with complex pain, pelvic pain, depression, anxiety, eating disorders, insomnia and chronic fatigue syndrome, and practices in a trauma-sensitive framework to help each patient feel safe and empowered throughout their treatment journey.

Johanna Lynch


Johanna Lynch is a GP psychotherapist in Brisbane working with adults who have survived childhood trauma and neglect. This clinical work and its rich transdisciplinary literature has led her to question the current framing of mental health as separate from the body and life story. She can no longer see the objective body as separate from subjective experience. Using generalist pattern recognition that integrates biomedical and social science knowledge, she has devoted her clinical and research work to defining and practicing whole person care.Johanna teaches medical students, GPs and mental health clinicians and consults on domestic violence in primary care. She is President of the Australian Society for Psychological Medicine. As daughter of a physiotherapist and mother to a physio student Johanna sees physios as fellow generalists who care for both body and mind! She was recently awarded her PhD through University of Queensland developing the concept of ‘sense of safety' as a whole person approach to distress. These ideas have been described by transdisciplinary stakeholders as ‘common sense', ‘paradigm changing', and ‘sorely needed' and have been distilled into a book: A Whole Person Approach to Wellbeing: Building Sense of Safety.
