Sand Tray Therapy

Sandtray therapy is an effective and immediate form of play therapy. The core of therapy using a sandtray is non-verbal and symbolic. Provided the therapist creates a safe and trusted space, children and adults play with sand, water, and a variety of figures over a period of time, constructing symbols of their  inner world. When the inner world is revealed, witnessed  and understood in an honouring and healthy way, healing can happen at an unconscious level.
