Sandplay Training: Certificate in Integrative Sandplay

Now booking for course starting 3rd October 2020 in Colchester, Essex with Emma Steadman

 

This is our most popular sandplay training course, leading to becoming a sandplay therapist. It is suitable for qualified counsellors, psychotherapists and play therapists. Other  people who are working/volunteering in education and mental health settings are also welcome to apply. Our groups are always small, with never more than 8 students on a course. So, this gives you lots of one-to-one support and encouragement. You will learn the key Jungian sandplay theories of Dora Kalff from the teacher Emma Steadman.

 

The focus is on experiential creative learning, so you will learn our evidence-based sandplay therapeutic method, with lots of practical advice and a chance to try sandplay. We will also use other creative arts therapies such as music, mindfulness and meditations to nurture ourselves in a free, protected space.

 

Accessible and affordable skills for working with children, adolescents and adults.

 

Sand tray is powerful as a way of accessing unconscious memories and feelings. Therefore, personal and group sandplay process is an important part of all our training.  Exploring our own material supports us and helps us in our professional practice (and in life). We may recommend that you are in personal therapy. In addition, there is ongoing support from the teaching staff and supervisors, all of whom are BACP and/or UKCP therapists and supervisors.

I was impressed and inspired by Jill’s professionalism, her excellent handouts, her encyclopedic knowledge but most of all the personal qualities that she brings, such generosity of spirit and warmth of heart. The pace is gentle yet firm, her holding of the space exceptional and after experiencing Psychotherapy training in other institutions I would rate Jill’s approach as masterful and highly competent. The handouts are eloquent and erudite, the symbol collection second to none and the opportunity to learn experiential as well as via lectures deeply effective and in my case, life changing.
