JUNGIAN SANDPLAY THERAPY
People are just as wonderful as sunsets if I can let them be...When I look at a sunset I don't find myself saying, "soften the orange a bit on the right hand corner"...I don't try to control a sunset. I watch with awe as it unfolds

JUNGIAN SANDPLAY THERAPY
Sandplay is hands on psychological work. It is a powerful therapeutic technique that facilitates the psyche’s natural capacity for healing. In a “free and protected” space provided by the counsellor, a client creates a concrete manifestation of his or her imaginal world using sand, water, and miniature objects. In this way, Sandplay helps honor and illuminate the your internal world and provides a place for its expression within a safe container, the tray filled with sand. Sandplay is done in conjunction with talk therapy and is very effective in all age groups.
Jungian Sandplay, which involves spontaneous imaginative play in small trays of wet or dry sand with miniature figurines and objects, is a useful approach when working with children. This unique approach encourages healing in children facing grief, loss, trauma and attachment related concerns. By playing in the sand, children can express their feelings and experiences with or without the use of words. Play therapy allows children the space to manage difficult feelings and memories, which would normally be too challenging for them to talk about directly. By approaching feelings and memories through the medium of sandplay, they become less intense
