Hello. I'm Lara Kasza (pronounced kash-a!)
I'm an accredited Creative Arts Therapist and a Registered Sandplay Therapist. I'm also a Senior Clinical Supervisor and have been a University Lecturer teaching Creative Therapy at Master's Level.
I have a beautiful and spacious private practice in North West London (Stanmore) where I offer:
SandStory Therapy® to adults (including trainee and qualified therapists) both individually and in groups.
Clinical Supervision to trainee and qualified Play Therapists
I have created an online training for Play Therapists wanting to be Ready, Set up and Grow a successful Play Therapy private practice in the UK.
SandStory Therapy® training to all therapists and counsellors interested in incorporating sand-based creative therapy into their clinical work.
I also offer creative SandSymbol making days for therapists wanting to experience some self-care time whilst growing their collection of symbols. These are often called 'miniatures' or 'objects' but I have coined the term 'SandSymbol' to capture how these work on a symbolic level when we say to our clients that"these can be any thing you want it to be."
I am a member of BACP (the British Association Of Counselling and Psychotherapy] and am on the BACP Register of Counsellors and Psychotherapists [registration number 174056] accredited by the Professional Standards Authority [PSA] for Health and Social Care, an independent body accountable to Government.
The BACP Register of Counsellors & Psychotherapists is a public record of therapists who have met BACP's standards for registration. These standards cover training, supervision, continuing professional development and a commitment to BACP's Ethical Framework.
I am also a member of PTUK (Play Therapy UK) as a Senior Clinical Supervisor and on their PSA Register.
Along with other professionals also on the PSA Register, I was invited to be in their film which explains in a clear and succinct way what the Register means - please take a look by clicking:
I hold a current DBS and indemnity insurance; I am clinically supervised by an experienced and qualified Supervisor and undergo annual CPD training to deepen my knowledge and ensure the safety and effectiveness of my practice.
I would love to hear from you so please do contact me - whether you are considering personal, creative therapy for yourself; if you are looking for a clinical supervisor; or are interested in the trainings I offer.
