Happy children in the sun. Together enjoying life. Finding their playfulness through group play therapy

The Playful Therapist....


Bringing 

Playfulness

into your world

Here at The Playful Therapist, we love making symbols, resources and tools for use in Play and Creative Arts Therapy. 


The act of creation is mesmeric, therapeutic and just great fun, and we want to share that experience with as many people as possible 

Sand Symbol Making Day

  

Have you ever had Sand Symbol envy when looking at other therapists’ amazing collections and wished you had some lovely symbols too … but couldn’t seem to find or afford the items you want? 


Why not create your own?

 

A SandSymbol Making Day may be just right for you!

During this 5-hour interactive workshop, you will create a treasure chest of symbols that you can integrate into your toolkit.


What are 'Sand Symbols'? They are all the miniatures, objects, figurines and items that are used in sandtrays as part of a client's process. These range from cars to unicorns to shells - and everything in-between! 


What does the workshop include? 


On the day you will have the opportunity to: 

  • Use polymer clay to make your own element symbols, and learn why the 4 elements (earth, air, fire & water) are essential for a Therapist’s toolkit
  • Create hand-painted mandala domes
  • Design your own inspirational stones and story rocks
  • Decorate glass jewels and gems 
  • Decoupage a treasure chest to hold all your newly created symbols
