Now booking for courses starting September 2020.
This is our most popular sandplay training course, leading to certification as a sandplay therapist. It is suitable for counsellors, psychotherapists and play therapists. Other people who are working/volunteering in education and mental health settings are also welcome. Our groups are always small, with never more than 10 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 Jill Carter.
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.
