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 is to demystify sandtray therapy, give basic groundrules and enable you to safely and respectfully begin to incorporate this into your consulting room. The use of sandtray for supervision is simply just another use of this magic therapy which is deep, profound and has many layers to it. Those who have already undergone some training in psychotherapy, counselling and related professions are welcome to explore how it may fit into your practice.

Sandtray therapy is a playful and magical form of growth-work. It touches on soul, body, psyche and spirit.
It is the use of miniatures within a sand tray to explore our life’s journey through symbols and sharing. The world of the sandtray becomes our training ground for life, and can lead to profound growth and fulfilment.
‘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. Many aspects explored in therapy, including family issues, inner child explorations,hidden traumas and explorations of growth can be helped. Most adults come to love the sandtray process.
What happens during the sandtray therapy process?
According to the Canadian Association For Sandplay Therapy:
“Through spontaneous imaginative play in small trays of wet or dry sand, clients sculpt sand and position miniature figurines and objects to create three dimensional scenes. In the ‘free and protected space’ of the therapeutic environment, these sand pictures express and mediate between the client’s inner and outer worlds, and promote healing and wholeness.
Touching dry sand often connects people to soothing, calming mother earth energy and early memories. Working with wet sand may be associated with creation and uncovering things long buried. Water also helps the healing process. Over time new insights and inner resources are found as the true self and psyche speak, confidence increases and a new ability is formed to be and create in the world with more empowerment.”
- Anna has been offering sandtray therapy for over twenty five years, having trained in integrative arts therapy which incorporated sandtray therapy.
- Both adults and children have experienced the transformational effects of using small symbols in sand.
- This therapy is normally one loved by adults once experienced as it incorporates a child-like use of small objects, a tactile feel of the sand, and a creative use of play and drama which defies description.
- Symbols of all kinds come to life, and the presence of a therapist simply enables a process to evolve, which can be spiritual, meaningful and life changing.
A minimum number of ten sessions is recommended to gain the most of this therapy. An introductory meeting will be offered to decide what form of therapy is best for you. Contact Anna for more information.
