Sand Tray Therapy

Sand play therapy is a powerful expressive therapy using figurines to create a ‘world’ or ‘image’ in a tray of sand. The figurines that an individual is attracted to have meaning in the symbolic language of the unconscious. Children are naturally drawn to this medium as it allows for creativity without error.

It is art that is movable. It is story telling in three dimensions. Sand play therapy is equally as powerful for adults. The ‘thinking brain’ is put aside to see what the emotions and the true self want to share. Sand play goes beyond thought and can be particularly helpful in situations that feel stuck.
