Jungian Sandplay Therapy
Lend A Hand offers Sandplay Therapy in conjunction with Talk Therapy. Sandplay Therapy is valuable for clients at both ends of the spectrum: those who tend to rationalise too much and those who don’t like talking at all. Sandplay Therapy is particularly useful for those who haven’t been heard, individuals with learning difficulties and is useful for both adults and children alike.
“The aim of Sandplay is to activate healing energies at the deepest level of the psyche through the use of miniatures and the sand tray to reflect the client’s inner world.” C. G. Jung Institute
