Who is a Sandplay Therapist?

A trained professional who has completed specialist theoretical Sandplay Therapy training, who is also
working towards or has achieved International Accreditation with ISST (International Society for Sandplay Therapy)

Sandplay Therapy was devised in the late 1930's by Dora Kalff who in turn also established ISST in 1985

Sandplay Therapy is an effective therapeutic process for a myriad of concerns.
Taking us back to the beginning, before words and their complexities hindered our capacity to understand and heal ourselves.

"From the first touch of the sand,
  there is often a palpable release of tension
   as the body begins to find its natural rhythm again."                                       Bonnie Badenoch
