ready to go safely and deeply into your unconscious state and to gently allow a full expression to emerge?
curious about creative therapy and open to being drawn to using sand as well as art and clay?
are comfortable with the 'unknowing' (that is, the non-conscious, cognitive understanding) of your inner process?
are ready for some transformational shifts that occur naturally and organically?
Then Sandplay Therapy may be a wonderful fit for you. Sandplay therapy is a is a form of creative therapy based on Jungian theory and developed by Dora Kalff.
Jung was convinced that we had within each one of us not only a drive to wholeness but a rich resource within us which constitutes our unique and authentic Selves.
Encountering and living from that true Self - what I call 'presence' - would bring a sense of security, of peace, true insight, clarity and a wisdom that would evolve to guide us through our interactions and relationships with others and with ourselves.
There are times when words - beautiful containers that they are - simply are not enough and are unequal to the task of expressing what goes beyond (or before) them. Sandplay Therapy offers a gentle, non-verbal, safe and supportive 'way in' - a different, although natural, way of communicating.
Whilst talking therapy works mainly in the domain of the conscious mind, Sandplay Therapy works primarily with the unconscious mind. It is often described as a 'waking dream' and flows and fits easily with talking-through when that is needed
