“Often the hands will solve a mystery that the intellect has struggled with in vain.”
C. G. Jung
Clients place miniature figurines in a small sandbox to express confusing feelings and inner experiences. This creates a visual representation, revealing unconscious concerns that are inaccessible any other way. Non-verbal therapies like sandplay are the most effective ways to access and release these “unconscious” feelings and experiences and bring them into consciousness, where they can be healed. Sandplays are created in a free and protected space, where the therapist does not interpret, interfere with, or direct the client’s symbolic expression.
