Sand Play & Expressive Therapies

“Often the hands know how to solve a riddle with which the intellect has wrestled in vain“ – Carl Jung

Expressive Therapies (ET) and Sand Play Therapy is an approach to counselling that uses the body and emotions for healing. These approaches must be provided by qualified expressive or sand play therapists as these therapy tools are not just playing in the sand or interpreting objects. The aim of ET is to reconnect the mind, body and feelings through emotional integration. Often intense emotions from traumatic experiences can become stored or imprinted in the body. ET safely supports the child / young person / adult to become aware of these ‘memories’ by gently identifying and slowly releasing the underlying emotion, which may be causing current life challenges. These therapies are a holistic way of working with people. They provide the opportunity for long term change through identifying ‘something that is not quite right’ in the body.
