‘It is a joy to be hidden, but a disaster not to be found.’ D.W. Winnicott

Jungian Sandplay Therapy can be used as a stand-alone therapy or effectively as a useful adjunct to more traditional ‘talking therapy’.

Presenting problems can range from low self-esteem, anxiety and depression to more complex trauma. (Often early trauma can be reflected in maladaptive, destructive behaviours, which can easily be overlooked when focusing solely on the behaviour).

Through the medium of sand and symbols, Sandplay Therapy works at the symbolic and sensory level, encouraging communication and integration between the different functions and parts of the brain. Often clients with complex trauma respond to a more flexible, fluid approach which Sandplay Therapy provides.

 

The ‘free and protected space’ which is at the heart of Sandplay Therapy, enables the client to work at their own pace, with their own resources, negating the possibility of re-traumatising or overwhelming the client.

Sandplay Therapy, grounded in Jungian Psychology, has an appeal to all ages, young and old. This creative therapy encourages the use of the client’s own resources to enable change, healing and growth.
