Sand Therapy

Sand Therapy, also referred to as sandplay, is a tangible medium that permits people to express themselves without words. The sandplay acts as a mirror that provides a glimpse into the inner world. Subconscious feelings emerge as they become represented by figurines, structures, dioramas, and patterns. Through gentle encouragement and guidance, the sandplay therapist helps the client interpret their creations and gain insight about the issues and conflicts that are most difficult to articulate. Traditionally, Sand Therapy is used with children. However, in some circumstances, Sand Therapy is particularly helpful for adolescents, adults, and even couples.
