Sand Tray Therapy

 

Sandtray therapy is an expressive and dynamic play process that is used by children, adolescents, individual adults, couples, families and groups in the presence of a trained sandtray therapist.  The therapeutic relationship aids the client in the opportunity to focus on the here and now.

With an extensive collection of miniature objects and a sand tray the client is able to work through some of the difficult issues.  The client is invited to create a world in the tray by placing objects into the tray in any arrangements that feel right to them.  The whole process gives the client the opportunity to bring internal issues to the surface instead of keeping them in the subconscious.  This can relieve many of the client’s symptoms as well as give them a better understanding of their struggles.
