"My own journey through Jungian Sandplay Therapy has been painful, challenging and very rewarding.
It has brought me to some of the darkest corners of my unconscious as well as some of the brightest.
It has helped me grow, taught me humility, encouraged me to learn more and enabled me to celebrate my achievements.
Most importantly, it has made me a better therapist."
So writes Jean O’Kelly in a detailed article published recently in Droichead — the official journal of the Supervisors Association of Ireland. It’s a lengthy piece but well worth reading for its practical examples of how Jungian Sand Therapy can be used both with clients and in supervision.
