Sandtray is a powerful technique in counseling. It accesses information from the emotional and creative center of the brain by having the client place miniatures (small items of various types) in a tray of sand. Then, teen and adult clients use the rational and logical part of the brain to describe what the miniatures mean to them (or what they might represent). I wrote a blog post about one of my personal Sandtrays that might be helpful for you to understand a bit more. Check that out here.
I completed a certification process with Southern Sandtray Institute in October of 2017. Completing that process certifies me as a Registered Integrative Sandtray Therapist. In essence, this certification means that I have received advanced training in various Sandtray techniques, engage in Sandtray for my personal growth, and am genuinely enthusiastic about incorporating Sandtray into my clients' therapy sessions.
If you have any questions or would like to explore how Sandtray can be integrated into your counseling journey, please don't hesitate to reach out to me.
