An accessible weekend’s online Introduction to Sandplay Therapy with children, adolescents and adults. Sandplay is a widely used and proven form of counselling, in which the healing process happens in a gentle, non-verbal way. Sand play and trauma therapy are therefore effective helping children express feelings, process traumatic memories and therefore improve their behaviour. Sandplay is also very useful with teenagers and adults who may prefer play therapy to talking, e.g. people with autism.
This course is suitable for anyone interested in the sandplay process, especially psychotherapists, play therapists and counsellors in schools, other counselling environments and in private practice. Other mental health, NHS and education professionals/volunteers and students are also welcome. Sand tray therapy and trauma counselling work well together.
As it is a small supportive group (no more than 10 people), you will learn the key Jungian sandplay theories of Dora Kalff in a free and protected space. Kalff developed sandplay therapy after a request from her teacher Carl Jung to find a way to do Jungian analysis with children. We will also give you advice on what equipment you need for sandplay therapy or Gestalt sand tray. In addition, you will get lots of practical help and one-to-one support from one of the UK’s top sandplay therapists.
This introductory weekend will give you a good idea of how sandplay works. Students often continue onto the Certificate course, which gives you a sandplay therapy training. So, why not come and start your journey towards becoming a Certified Sandplay Therapist.

Check this general overview on sandplay therapy and why its effective
Emma Steadman is an experienced play therapist (MA, BACP), supervisor and trainer. She has worked in CAMHS, charities and schools over the last seventeen years. She is therefore a very experienced teacher and supervisor of creative arts and sandplay therapy. Emma creates a playful creative space to open hearts and minds. She therefore encourages students to tune into clients, see different perspectives and develop confidence.
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.
