Sandtray therapy provides a way for an individual to communicate nonverbally in counseling through the use of sand and miniatures. The process is non-threatening, emotionally safe and free of rules.
Individuals take their time to explore the sand and the hundreds of miniature figures available to create a scene in the sand. As the scene unfolds in the sand, the therapist is present to the individual, providing a protected space and emotional support. Afterwards, the individual and the therapist may discuss the scene that was created in the tray.
