A creative, non-spoken therapy for people of all ages.
Sand tray pictures can represent many parts of life, such as people, ideas, situations, and feelings. Scenes in a sandbox can represent a person’s “inner world”. They can help someone express things that it is difficult to talk about out loud. This can be useful for better understanding the problems in our lives, or seeing thoughts we’re not aware of.
How can sand tray therapy help?
Sand tray therapy can be useful for people of any age. However, it can be particularly helpful for children with developmental difficulties, people who have difficulty relating to others, people whose first language isn’t English, or people who tend to feel defensive when they speak.
Sand tray therapy creates a safe environment, and can help you express emotions that are hard to put into words. For example, if you have experienced a traumatic event, it can be easier to show it through objects rather than talk about it out loud.
This type of therapy can help you be more aware of yourself, resolve conflicts, and challenge things that hold you back.
