Sandplay Therapy is a hands-on, expressive counselling and psychotherapy modality that has been in use for over eighty years. Sandplay forms a bridge between verbal therapy and the expressive therapies, combining elements of each. Sandplay allows the deeper aspects of the psyche to be worked with naturally and in safety. With an extensive research and literature base, Sandplay is a powerful therapeutic method for use by established professionals. It has been shown to be effective with children, adolescents and adults, in schools, hospitals, welfare agencies and private therapy practices.
