At the heart of Sandtray Play is the task of entering the child’s whole mind. This attachment-based method provides a safe space for children to explore issues. Sandtray miniatures (figurines) become the voice of the child, building worlds, telling internal stories as yet untold.
We are a Witness to the child’s world, their family and environment. Sandtray Play is a place for children to explore their entirety of Self including emotions, unexpressed anger, fear, rage or other negative emotions and to allow them to be released.
Preventative and curative through story telling children explore felt senses, whether only using the sand to push and pull, mound and bury, the sand acts to self-regulate.Witnessed by a significant other enables a co-regulative relationship.
