sandplay therapy

In addition to traditional talk therapy, Peace of Mind Counseling and Wellness Center utilizes the modality of Sandplay Therapy. Sandplay Therapy, originated by Carl Jung and Dora Kalff, is an effective and enjoyable counseling tool used with children, adolescents and adults. Sandplay consists of the client’s creation of a world with miniature figures in a tray of sand in the protective presence of a trained counselor. Using symbolism, the three-dimensional figures are used in a hands-on process in the sand tray. By way of a person’s own experiences and creation, sandplay can be used to successfully heal from trauma.

“Sandplay therapy can establish an inner peace which contains the potential for development of the total personality, including its intellectual and spiritual aspects.”


Dora Kalff
