SandPlay Therapy: A non-verbal technique

“Sand Play therapy is a non-verbal technique for children & adults.​”

Eureka Centre offers a specialised form of play therapy called Sand Play. Sand Play therapy is an alternative non-verbal form of psycho-therapy through which the subconscious mind can be accessed & underlying problems can be solved.

It is essentially a non-verbal technique. Clients “tell” their story by using small figures to build a picture in a sand tray.

Sand Play creates a bridge between the conscious and the sub-conscious making it possible to access and come to terms with disturbing life experiences which often defy verbal expression.

It offers an alternative to hypnotherapy and EMDR for children & adults and is useful for a wide range of psychological disorders, such as:

  • Anger
  • Anxiety
  • Behaviour problems
  • Depression
  • Relationship Issues

Some life experiences defy verbal expression. Sand Play therapy is a non-verbal technique for children & adults.

We at Eureka Centre have many satisfied clients. Below are some of their inspiring stories:

Sandplay Therapy

My daughter, 14 years old, was very rebellious after my divorce. She refused to accept her stepmother. She withdrew from the family, refusing to talk to anyone. I took her for sandplay at Eureka Centre. She was able to work through her emotions without having to talk about it. I am very satisfied with the outcome.

We can't thank you enough!

My 16 year old daughter experienced a traumatic event which happened 2 years earlier at school and after keeping it to herself for so long began to have serious panic attacks at school. The result was she left her school and withdrew from normal life totally, feeling depressed and suicidal at times. Thank God we then discovered The Eureka Centre.

After quite intense therapy with Jeanette using EMDR and hypnotherapy, I can report that she has returned back to normal schooling and is totally positive about life again – it is like a miracle! I don’t know how we would have overcome this long dark episode in our lives had it not been for Jeanette at The Eureka Centre. We can’t thank you enough!
