Discover the magic of sand tray-based therapy training, designed to help non-therapists connect with children who find it hard to talk about their feelings.

In our live webinar, you’ll learn gentle techniques to create a safe space where children can express themselves using sand and miniatures. It’s a wonderful intervention for children who struggle to verbalise how they feel, yet need a creative, comforting way to help them feel understood and supported.

Our training integrates the innovative Bounce Scale, ensuring that every emotion, from joy to sorrow, finds a voice to be heard. Through this holistic Polyvagal informed framework, you’ll gain gentle techniques to guide children through their emotional journeys, using the sand tray as a canvas for self-expression.
