ABOUT

I
am a sand-play therapist based in Yafo, who has experience working
with children, teenagers and adults and I am bi-lingual. I am currently working as a
sand-play therapist with school age children who have behavioural
problems, especially in articulating themselves. In the session I
invite the child to choose any of the numerous figures laid out and
place them in the sand tray this is an inviting, safe environment for
the children to express themselves, without needing to verbalise
their problems. Here they can explore their relationships with their
families, their place in the world and how their behaviour impacts
themselves and others.


Everyone
regardless of age is drawn to the figures,
they
represent
all
aspects
of our lives in miniature. Choosing from them is an expression of a
person's individuality, as we are drawn to figures that spea
k
only

to us. Clients are then asked to place the figures in the sand tray,
where
they construct a narrative with the figures standing in for people
and situations
.
The sand tray provides a safe place for the client to express herself
non-verbally and working with the sand tray and figures enhances this
safe expression of clients' emotions and feelings.





Prior to my experience
working with children in after-school care, I worked with adults in
an NHS mental health unit in a hospital in South London. This unique
experience provided me with the opportunity to work with troubled
adults who required a special and patient approach. I also worked for
a year in a high school, with troubled teenagers. The sand tray
allowed them to express themselves, providing insight into their
personal trauma. This gave them the opportunity to manage and contain
their feelings, and live more complete lives.





My aim in working with the
sand tray and figures is driven by my desire to give clients the
freedom to explore and resolve their problems in a safe and playful
environment.
