Many individuals are unable to verbalize or talk about the trauma or abuse in their past. Sometimes there just aren’t words to express the frightening or painful experiences a person has endured. Sandplay is an effective non-verbal psychotherapeutic approach for both children and adults.
Sandplay therapy allows the individual to express secret pain, fear and anxiety by using of creativity and play. The sandplay process involves using sand and miniature objects to express real life experiences and inner world experiences in a safe and symbolic way. Sandplay therapy is an excellent alternative for individuals who feel overwhelmed by the idea of talk therapy. Many patients report significant relief after just one sandplay session.
