Hello and a very warm welcome to my page, I’m Monique Pangari, MEd (she/her). I am blessed to live on the beautiful Sunshine Coast in South East QLD, Australia and I’d like to acknowledge the Gubbi Gubbi people who are the traditional custodians of this land that I live, work and play on.
I have the privilege of working with amazing counsellors and psychotherapists who seek a safe space to learn and grow both personally and professionally. I’m a trained and experienced Psychotherapist, specialising in Somatic Sand Therapy® (SST®) and Somatic Attachment Focused Expressive Therapy (SAFE-T®).
I am dedicated to supporting beginning and experienced therapists’ own process of personal growth and healing, increasing states of loving awareness, enhancing compassion and creating deeper states of connection with self, others and our natural living world through professional training and supervision.
I have founded ‘The School of Integrative Somatic Psychotherapy’ in order to provide creative, healing, embodied and loving processes that support the human experience. I value both the personal and professional journey of the therapist and believe that the quality of support given to the interplay between the two is what creates leading therapy providers.
