Sand Play World Play 

 

This is a therapeutic technique used with children, adults, families, couples and groups.  

Clients are asked to pick as few or as many of the many images (miniatures) as they want that the therapist has available.  

Clients are then asked to create or build their own world in the sand.  

There are deep trays and shallow trays of sand available to work in.  A therapist may have different coloured sands available for use, such as black sand, white sand, or clay coloured sand.

Sand tray therapy has a long tradition, dating back to the 1920's.  It is a profound way of working, whereby the client accesses their own psyche in the service of their own healing.
