SandStory Therapy® is a gentle and safe way of working creatively with sand and symbols.
It provides children with the opportunity to tell their story in the sand. It is a great approach for children who may find it difficult to find the words to talk about the difficulties they may have experienced.
In SandStory Therapy® the child selects from a range of toys and other symbols and creates their 3D story world in a sand tray. The story world they create helps them express and explore their feelings about whatever they have made in the sand. In the safe hands of a qualified therapist they are then able to experiment with new ways of thinking which enables the child to feel better about themselves and their situation.
SandStory Therapy® has been developed in a way that compliments Play and the Creative Arts Therapy and can be used for a wide range of referrals. This approach fits well with children form the age of 8+
