Sandtray Therapy  Training Schedule – Autumn 2018 – 2019

Welcome to the next series of Sandtray therapy trainings – I hope you will find something of interest here for you whether you are an experienced sandtray person or new to this wonderful work.  Bookings now being taken. Do keep checking the site for updates on new courses.

Sandplay therapy’ was first developed with Dora Kalff in the 1950’s, based on the  theories of Carl Jung.  It incorporates the collective unconscious, the use of universal symbols and dream language. Sandtray Therapy has since become more widespread within humanistic therapies, focusing on growth and therapy for potential. Sandtray therapy is a deep and profound tool for those seeking to heal aspects of their psyche, and reach for their full creative potential in life.

Sandtray therapy is such a wonderful tool in the practice of being a therapist – it is no longer just the territory of Jungian analysts.  My role in these trainings is to demystify sandtray therapy, give basic groundrules and enable you to safely and respectfully begin to incorporate this into your consulting room.  Those who have already undergone some training in psychotherapy,counselling and related professions are welcome to explore how it may fit into your practice.
