Gabriele - Sandplay Therapy
Sandplay therapy is amongst one of the many great passions, and especially in relation to children (and adults as well). After experience the changes it can make in children I personally feel that sand play is amongst one of the most useful and most effective ways to assist children who may be currently experiencing:
- Unexplained anxiety and fears
- Panic attacks
- Lack of motivation, poor school performance when the child is capable
- Sibling rivalry
- Nail biting
- Behaviour that is angry and aggressive behaviour
- Scary dreams or nightmares
- Frequent crying
- Child being bullied at school
Why is Sandplay so effective for children?
Sandplay therapy is effective as a healing modality as it establishes a protected and safe space, where the complexities and difficulties of the inner world are explored and integrated into the psyche for emotional healing. Those undergoing sand play therapy will place miniature figurines in a small sandbox to express inner experiences and confusing feelings. This develops a visual representation of the contents of the mind and thus will reveal unconscious concerns that are inaccessible any other way.
