Sandtray Therapy and the Creative Arts

Sandtray Therapy and Creative Arts for practicing Therapists and others on a path of growth

Based on over twenty years experience as trainer. 

Imagine yourself surrounded by mixed media:  paints, clay, collage materials, writing in a warm cosy room,  dabbling, expressing your free self in colour, form and being.

Learn how the Creative Arts can transform your life or those of your clients. For over 30 years I have been inspired by the power of our creativity to enable lasting growth and fulfilment, and heal some deep wounds. I love to share this passion with you.

Come be inspired, free your inner child, and discover how to play again.

My days and retreats are for all who wish to release your full creative expression in your life now.

Sandtray days are primarily for those already offering therapy or counselling to clients, or those in training

  • This training is primarily for those who are already trained as counsellors or therapists – contact me if you are interested and do not have this training.

I bring all the equipment and tools you need.  You simply  show up, open and ready to discover the power of sandtray minatures in a sandbox – the quality of this therapy defies belief and incorporates mind, body and spirit.

‘The use of miniatures within a sand tray enables you to explore life’s journey through symbols and sharing. The world of the sandtray becomes our training ground for life, and can lead to profound growth and fulfilment.’

I have been using sandtray therapy for over thirty years and continue to be amazed by the depth and breadth of what can be covered – it is a therapy which incorporates mind, body psyche and soul.  I love to share the power of this therapy  and its potential with others.

Creative arts events – “It is not often we get an opportunity to get in touch with our creative energy and find ingenious ways to connect with ourselves and our process too. Anna offers a wonderful space to do this, throughout the day Anna guided and encouraged a deep and playful exploration, supporting our process individually and as a group. We had an opportunity to experiment with variety of creative mediums. I was in my element and came away with an understanding of how this would be applied in a therapeutic context and I am inspired to learn more.”
Sophie Gazia

Anna was a superb facilitator who held the group safely and compassionately.  The day was beautifully constructed…

It was supportive, inclusive and just wonderful’


“Truly worthwhile experience, providing personal and professional exploration and reflection. An insight into the powerful containment and therapeutic benefits of using sandtray in counselling. A holding, warm and attentive trainer, with a vast supply of sandtray equipment provided for effective engagement in the process.”


Anna’s enthusiasm and experience is inspiring and informative. The introduction workshop gives a very practical way into integrating sandtray work into existing therapy practice. I am inspired to use this method and to learn more.
