SELF CARE for PROFESSIONALS – “Treasures In The Sand” Workshop

This creative therapeutic and experiential workshop provides you with self-care whilst also learning techniques you can share with your clients.

Recognised professional development by the ACA, this ‘Taster’ introduction to Sandplay therapy workshop, facilitated by Kerryn Knight – Sandplay Therapy Master Practitioner, allows you to witness and experience the power of sandplay and gain insight for yourself and learn how it can benefit your clients.

Sandplay is a wholistic approach to counselling and psychotherapy.

Sandplay is for all ages. Children love it and adults are amazed by its profound ability to get to the core and make meaning.

By using miniature objects that symbolically represent all aspects of life, you can display your inner world so it can be looked at from all angles revealing what underlies the current situation and gain a deeper understanding of issues and find solutions. Sandplay gets to the heart of the issue quickly and easily through bypassing the analytical mind and instead focussing on the ‘felt sense’ response to an issue.


Who Should Attend? These workshops are open for those who are seeking self-care, personal and professional development.  If you are a student or professional Art Therapist, Counsellor, Social Worker or Mental Health Worker these 4 hour SELF CARE for PROFESSIONALS workshops are perfect to provide you with essential self-care, learn techniques to use with your clients and network with other professionals in a small group setting.

Contact Kerryn for terms of agreement details for the option for Group Supervision within this workshop.

Recognised by the Australian Counselling Association (ACA), when attending this workshop you receive Professional Development points towards your annual opd requirements.
