Jill’s sand tray courses have improved my work with children and adults enormously. I have 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 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 – to therefore bring together the magic of play with the solid theories and research which make it so effective for many clients.

  • You can become a Certified Sandplay Therapist
  • Our sandplay, art, trauma and supervision courses can be used for BACP/UKCP Continuing Professional Development
  • These courses are great if you work with children, adolescents and/or adults.
  • They will help your work as a counsellor, psychotherapist, clinical psychologist, play therapist, wellbeing or mental health practitioner.
  • The training will 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 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.

The Jungian Archetypes behind the Myth of Saint George

It’s Saint George’s Day.  Which of course is most associated with football, patriotism and of course (sorry) Brexit.   George is England’s Patron Saint, but also that of other countries.
