Scholarships

Scholarships aim to broaden opportunities and make learning and growing a successful experience.  Lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, intersex, questioning and asexual (LGBTQIA+) practitioners, along with Australian First Nations practitioners, often face unique challenges in their personal lives, workplaces and academia; funding shouldn’t be one of them.

Scholarships aim to broaden opportunities and make learning and growing a successful experience.  Lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, intersex, questioning and asexual (LGBTQIA+) practitioners, along with Australian First Nations practitioners, often face unique challenges in their personal lives, workplaces and academia; funding shouldn’t be one of them.

It’s more important than ever for the LGBTQIA+ community and for the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander community, to be included in the world of welfare, psychology, counselling and psychotherapy.  By creating access to scholarships for LGBTQIA+ folk along with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander individuals, we can better shape cultural progress.

For this reason, I have made two partial scholarship’s available each year:  The Queer Leaders Scholarship and the Sovereign Leaders Scholarship.  Read below for details and to apply.

  • This training will not provide education on working with marginalised individuals, relationships or groups (Monique is not an expert in these areas and does not claim to be), but will look at applying her transformational Integrative Somatic Psychotherapy models to the unique people and kinship systems that the training participants bring with them in their minds, hearts and spirits.
  • It is Monique’s aim to create a space to learn in an inclusive way that will honour the experiences of those who are so easily disenfranchised in traditional therapy settings and training.
