Theme for this SELF CARE for PROFESSIONALS Workshop:

'Treasures In The Sand' - 

Recognised professional development by the ACA, this 'Taster' introduction to Sandplay therapy workshop, facilitated by Kerryn Knight - Sandplay Therapy Master Practitioner, allows you to witness and experience the power of sandplay and gain insight for yourself and learn how it can benefit your clients.

Sandplay is a wholistic approach to counselling and psychotherapy and goes hand-in-hand with Art Therapy.

Sandplay is for all ages. Children love it and adults are amazed by its profound ability to get to the core and make meaning.

By using miniature objects that symbolically represent all aspects of life, you can display your inner world so it can be looked at from all angles revealing what underlies the current situation and gain a deeper understanding of issues and find solutions. Sandplay gets to the heart of the issue quickly and easily through bypassing the analytical mind and instead focussing on the 'felt sense' response to an issue.
