What will happen?
Your child will spend one hour in each session, working with me in a caring, gentle and fun environment. Instead of having to talk about what is going on, your child will use miniature figures and their imagination to explore their inner world, share it and process what is going on for them. All the while, I stay nearby to help if and when needed.
We’ll explore the meanings of the symbols placed in the sand tray and they’ll gain self-awareness and insight which stimulates growth and healing. This is what brings about changes to the patterns often begun in childhood that end up directing our lives. Every session provides opportunity for positive changes to your child's perspective, self-esteem and behaviour.
As they play and use their imagination to process what is going on for them, they’ll also learn about risk, their likes, skills and their own strengths. This is what will help prepare them to handle things more easily in the future.
They will build their resilience and work towards developing into happy, well-adjusted adults, have emotional intelligence and feel successful in what they do.
And we can achieve all of this without the need for them to talk about their issues directly.
As a qualified Counsellor and a Master Practitioner in Sandplay Therapy together we can create a plan of action which will be most effective in dealing with the issues causing your child unhappiness.
