Certified UK Sandplay Courses: Creative Trauma, Supervision & Art Trainings

Jill Carter is the UK’s leading creative trainer for certified sandplay therapy training courses.  All our trainings are particularly suitable for counsellors, psychotherapists, play therapists. Other professionals or volunteers in the mental health and education fields are also welcome. In addition, our sandplay, therapeutic art, trauma and supervision courses can be used as BACP or UKCP Continuing Professional Development.

 

Certified Sandplay Courses

 

Sandplay therapy is above all a proven way of working with children to help them express feelings and improve behaviour. In fact, it was developed by the Jungian analyst Dora Kalff. Our evidence-based integrative approach is also great for working with adolescents and adults. That is, to encourage clients who want to try something creative and different. Click here to learn more about how sandplay works.

 

Creative Supervision, Trauma and Art Trainings

 

Our creative training courses are specifically designed to give you the chance to express yourself. You will also get lots of one to one attention and advice. The courses can therefore be used as Continuing Professional Development (CPD).

 

In addition the courses:

  • Explain the theories and research behind creativity in counselling, education and mental health environments
  • Are written and taught by Jill Carter or Emma Steadman who have 15 years experience teaching in this field
  • Have no more than 10 students in each group, which gives both space to connect with others and to receive practical, individual advice
  • Click here for more details and to book onto our weekend Introduction to Sandplay course
  • Click here for more details of our weekend Introduction to Using Therapeutic Art Activities in Counselling.

Experience of sandplay therapy, play therapy or art therapy is useful. We will train you in working creatively in supervision sessions. Good rate of pay and regular work supporting students on our courses. For more details contact Jill Carter jill@jillcarter.co.uk.

Why do these training courses with Jill?

Jill has been teaching sandplay therapy training courses for fifteen years.  Our creative arts, supervision and trauma trainings are also based on the most recent and relevant research and case studies. In addition, she draws on her current clinical work as a UKCP and BACP accredited child, adolescent, family and adult psychotherapist & supervisor. She is also an EMDR therapist. In fact, hundreds of students have already done our courses. These are the key reasons why they choose us:

  • Expert, friendly, supportive training
  • Small groups, which give you plenty of one-to-one attention
  • Practical, research-based advice
  • Affordable (monthly payment plans available)
  • Courses take place regularly in London and Essex
Certified Sandplay Therapy Training Courses

Jill’s sand tray courses have improved my work with children and adults enormously. I have therefore gained a deeper understanding of the theories taught. Also, an even deeper understanding of myself through the experiential learning and reflective practice she has encouraged. I highly recommend these courses. Jill is indeed a supportive, knowledgeable and patient tutor.

If you are reading this, you are probably already drawn to the idea of using creativity in your work. So, we can teach you to bring together the magic of play with solid theories and research. This blend therefore makes an effective and enjoyable way of working with clients of all ages.

  • You can become a Certified Sandplay Therapist
  • Our sandplay, art, trauma and supervision courses can also be used for BACP/UKCP Continuing Professional Development
  • These courses are especially great if you work with children, adolescents and/or adults.
  • They will in particular help you as a counsellor, psychotherapist, clinical psychologist, play therapist, wellbeing or mental health practitioner.
  • The training will also support you as a professional, student or volunteer in an educational /mental health setting, e.g. school, nursery, SEN or CAMHS.
  • Our students come from different backgrounds, trainings and experience
  • Most people who come on the training courses form part of a growing supportive community
  • There is therefore ongoing support through private Facebook groups, webinars and connections made with other attendees

More than anything, this course taught me to “feel” and to trust my instincts personally and professionally. I am more attuned to my clients’ emotions and experiences because I have allowed myself to feel my own hurt and joy. As a result, I have a deeper, more connected relationship with my clients. So, I am confident that what I am now reflecting back to my clients is their own experience, not mine.
