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

Professional training courses designed to encourage and support creativity in counselling, education and mental health environments. The courses are written and taught by Jill Carter who has 15 years experience teaching creativity in this field.

There are no more than 10 students in each group, which gives a good grounding in theory, practical advice and a chance to try out sandplay or art with lots of one to one attention and encouragement.

Why do the courses with Jill?

Jill has been teaching sandplay and art for fifteen years.  All of her teaching is based on the most recent and relevant research and case studies as well as her clinical work as a UKCP and BACP accredited child, adolescent, family and adult psychotherapist & supervisor. Hundreds of students have already done our courses and these are the key reasons why they choose us:

  • Expert, friendly, supportive training
  • Small groups so you have plenty of one-to-one attention
  • Practical research-based advice
  • Affordable (monthly payment plans available)
  • Courses take place in London and Essex
Jill Carter

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

Is it for me?

If you are reading this, you are probably already drawn to the idea of using creativity in your work – to bring together the magic of play with the solid theories and research which make it so effective for many clients.

  • These courses are great if you work with children, adolescents and/or adults.
  • You are a counsellor, psychotherapist, clinical psychologist, play therapist, wellbeing or mental health practitioner.
  • You are a professional, student or volunteer in an educational /mental health setting, e.g. school, nursery, SEN or CAMHS.
  • You want to go beyond the limits of talking therapy
  • What this means is you will meet a mix of people with similar interests and 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
  • All courses are certified and can be used for BACP/UKCP Continuing Personal Development

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. I have a deeper, more connected relationship with my clients. I am confident that what I am now reflecting back to my clients is their own experience, not mine.

The Present of Presence

I have been away on a meditation retreat for the last few days, so today the world feels very loud. It’s a funny thing stepping out of the day-to-day world.  When I first arrived at the retreat, my mind was buzzing with the hundreds of things I could/should/ would be doing if I wasn’t there.…
