This is our most popular sandplay training course, leading to certification as a sandplay therapist. It is suitable for counsellors, psychotherapists and play therapists, as well as other people working/volunteering in education and mental health settings. Our groups are always small, with never more than 10 students on a course. This gives you lots of one-to-one support and encouragement on 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, so personal and group sandplay process is an important and healing part of all our training. Exploring our own material supports us and helps us in our professional practice (and in life). We recommend that you are in personal therapy. In addition, there is ongoing support from the teaching staff and supervisors throughout the course, all of whom are BACP and/or UKCP therapists and supervisors.
