'Registered SandStory Skills® Practitioner Training'
Offered as a two day in-person training or as a 6 module online version, this course teaches the soft skills needed to work with sand trays safely for those who are not trained as therapists. The aim is to build the confidence to support children's emotional well being as they tell their personal stories in the sand.
At it's heart, the training aims to delineate a 'line in the sand' in terms of the SAFE REMIT for practitioners - so that they keep themselves safe (within the remit of their job description) AND the participants (whether these are the children, young people or adults) in their care.

For Parents and Carers
'Parent and Child Attachment Play' (PCAP)
PCAP is an innovative and playful 10 step approach to empower parents and carers as the change agents in their own families. The practitioner works with the parent only, sharing skills to increase confidence and promote attachment. The parent is then encouraged to transfer these skills to the home environment with the support of the practitioner. Fundamentally, PCAP enables parents and carers to strengthen the quality of relationship with their children.
PCAP practitioners can gently interrupt the known problems of attachment transmission evident in many families, in which relational difficulties appear to pass down generations.
Groups and individual sessions available.
