It is often not the Play Therapist that introduces the idea of Play Therapy to the child before the sessions begin. This can be quite difficult for the parent/carer to do. Previously, I have been asked what they should say to their child about what Play Therapy is. I wanted to make this easier for the parent/carer and beneficial for both them and the child.
I have used sand within my practice for some time and it is very popular with the clients that I work with. Although I felt confident using my Play Therapy skills whilst using the sand, I felt something was missing. I came across SandStory Therapy and just loved the sound of it. After speaking to the trainer, Lara Kasza, who shared my passion for the sand and the clients she works with, I was keen to learn more so signed up instantly.
