SandPlay Therapy is one of the deepest healing processes someone could experience. A process of creating worlds in the sand connects one with a healing power within self.
A therapist is here to create a free and protected space where you or your child could feel seen, heard, and understood as who you essentially are as a unique whole person, and not just who you "supposed to be".
SandPlay Therapy have been offered by specially trained therapists for many years both in adult and child psychotherapy. It proved to be especially helpful in healing trauma or other issues, when talk therapy is not helpful.
