Sand tray therapy is a nonverbal, non rational form of therapy. Sand tray therapy reaches a profound preverbal level of the psyche. Sand tray is a unique, dramatic, muti-dimensional form of individualized creativity. Its purpose is to provide access to the innate healing and growth functions that are present in the human psyche.
Sand tray therapy provides a bridge between an individual’s unique intropsychic reality and the reality of the outer world. It provides a bridge between the unconscious and the conscious aspects of the psyche, a bridge into the world of feelings, creating, and centering the self on a journey to the inner world.
