Creative & Play Therapies 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 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.
‘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.

Transformational Soul Therapy /Soul Mentoring (incorporating Radical Embodiment)
‘ To meditate is to look deeply into the heart of things.’ Thich Nhat
‘Spirituality (is) based on the idea that all matter has consciousness and that accessing the spirit in all things is part of what keeps the world in balance and individuals healed and whole’ (unknown).
Soul work enables a new form of living: The deeper life experience of a true soul self – lived and embodied, with heart at its centre.
Transformation Soul Therapy – is based on shamanic practice, spiritual healing, therapeutic counselling, karmic cord release, and seership. It can involve past life therapy, embodiment release, energy clearing, guidance and more. It is based on love in action, and is at all times guided by higher forces.
I have been offering this therapy for almost thirty years, and continue to be amazed and honoured at the potential to reach and enable deep healing at all levels. A transformational journey, during which we may cover many different aspects of your life depending on your needs.
– As a healer, shamanic therapist, seer, awakening woman, dancer, ritualist, tantra practitioner and mystic, as well as a qualfied therapist and counsellor, I continue to travel the path of transformation and growth, with love at its centre. This informs how each session is shaped.
During soul sessions you may find:
- A mirror for you to find yourself, and a light so that you can find your way….
- Tools to become whole, joyful and alive in mind, body and spirit
- Soul and karmic healing to help clear the way for new life
- Cleansing and clearing tools, with guidance for transitions and change
- A form of psycho-spiritual therapy and healing which is transformational
- New energy flowing through your body enabling vibrancy and heightened senses
- Together we can travel the path of emergence into new life, and new growth,whatever point on the journey you are on.
- We can touch on your soul purpose, transitions, awakening, healing, ancestral cords, karmic cords, physical presence, psychological growth, sexual woundings as male or female, inner and outer balance, divine masculine, divine feminine and much more.
This work can be as effective via Skype as face to face – I am available to those all over the world.
One hour ……………….£60.00
Soul Mentoring/Coaching – During soul mentoring sessions, we touch on aspects of coaching using the soul as our starting point – we focus in and offer guidance, embodiment practices, support for you to grow into your soul purpose and techniques to enable you to be your true magnificent self. Soul mentoring can be useful at particular times of growth, change, transition and emergence into a full and flowing life. It is suitable for those who know they are ready to step up and be the leader or reach true fulfillment. Men or women, or non gender, all welcome.
Contact me for more information.
I have been to see Anna for over three years – beginning with a time when I was in distress, and continuing over a transition. Her work has been for me transformative, accurate, gentle and at times magical. It is an honour to know Anna as a healer and to experience her golden support. She knows just by sitting with you, what is right for you. and I always come out amazed at the guidance and my reactions. My life has changed immeasurably. Thankyou. ‘ GH
‘Anna is a therapist and soul healer/shamanic practitioner I trust and have referred others to her. She has a deep integrity and wisdom, combined with a sensitive style. Her spiritual insights are often breathtaking and she can reach aspects of ourself which we simply do not know are there. I would have no hesitation in recommending a visit to Anna for anyone on a path of growth.’ PD
‘As soon as Anna spoke I was completely at ease. Never before. would I have spoken about spiritual advancement or the accompanying psychic phenomena…with Anna I felt relaxed enough to say whatever I liked.
Before long, I had decided to take my eldest son. We now both look forward to seeing Anna, and are delighted every time we do. We travel a long way to do this.
We are very lucky to have Anna among us. It is amazing. It is like some kind of blessing.
Thank you for everything you do. ‘ GW
‘I have experienced past life and soul healing with Anna. She has enabled me to heal many aspects of my life which I thought would be completely impossible to touch, and has offered insights and guidance which are of vast help. I am so grateful.’ RW
