Sand Play Therapy is a hands on expressive therapy intervention. This powerful technique involves connecting insights to feelings through symbolism and play, reflecting our inner reality. This method gives children a voice and enables adults to address problematic patterns from their past. Sand play stimulates our natural ability to heal while simultaneously processing our trauma.
