        Creative & PlaTherapies with Anna

         ‘Life must be lived as play– attributed to Plato

Anna has been offering therapies and counselling for almost forty years – her main qualifications are in play therapy, creative arts counselling, sandtray therapy and therapeutic counselling.  See below for details.

See counselling page for more information –

Play Therapy 

Play therapy offers the use of play, toys, arts and drama to enable the child or child within to find freedom of expression, spontaneity, healing of traumas and movement towards fulfilment in life. Play is the child’s way of learning about the world and how to grow and thrive. When an adult experiences play therapy, their inner child can begin to heal and become whole again, particularly if there are traumas from the past.

Children learn about life and relationships through play, and within therapy can come to heal many of the traumas associated with issues such as abuse, trauma,bereavement and loss.   Adults can utilise play therapy in a similar way when childhood issues are limiting our ability to live a full and happy life.

Play is the source of all creativity, and a most wonderful tool within therapy or healing on the path towards our true potential.

I hold an M.A in Play Therapy from the University of York, together with a certificate in the use of arts for education and therapy from the Institute of Arts in Therapy and Education. I have offered play and creative arts in therapy for over twenty five years.

Art washes away from the soul the dust of everyday life.’ – Pablo Picasso 

Creative Arts Counselling 

The use of arts and drama to enable therapeutic growth – for both adults and children, the value of the creative self is in discovering hidden depths and spontaneity, often revealing where traumas lie, or where potential is limited.  The arts within therapy and counselling can enable us to discover who we truly are, without words, and in a rare form of discovery which can be astounding.

Art forms I offer include but are not limited to the use of collage, paint, clay, drawing, drama and writing.  This will depend on the venue I see you and your wishes.

Sandtray Therapy

‘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. The two terms have recently become almost indistinguisable, as the value of this therapy has become greater understood.  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, children and young people 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 almost thirty years, having trained in integrative arts therapy and play therapy which incorporate 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.
