Sandplay is a wholistic approach to counselling. By using miniature objects that represent all aspects of life, the client will clearly display their inner world. It is a deep process which shows the client what underlies the current situation that they are presenting. Sandplay allows a movement within the client that is profound. It identifies unspoken issues and brings solutions. Sandplay is for everyone. Children love it and adults marvel at it.
Sandplay is a journey which both the facilitator and the client walk together. It is an exciting journey not to be missed. For the practitioner it is a privilege to be part of the enfolding of the client’s psyche and for the client it is a true revelation of their inner core. It encompasses everything both past present and future. It can sometimes reveal something so buried that the client has forgotten the original event.
Sandplay is a RAPID method that gets to the heart of the issue quickly and easily. It bypasses the mind. Clients get to see the original decision that was made which creates the response to the behaviour that they are displaying when they come in for therapy.
There is always a solution to be found. Either the client has already put it in the tray or when you have worked with what the issue you can ask the client to choose a piece that would help with the solution. In other words they will always come up with what is needed for change. It takes it out of your hands and empowers the client.
