A series of sandplay images portrayed in the sand tray create an ongoing dialogue between the conscious and the unconscious aspects of the client’s psyche, which activates a healing process and the development of the personality. 

Art Therapy For Children

At Box Tree Clinic in Harley Street, Central London, we also provide art therapy for children. Art therapy allows children to visually express their emotions, thoughts, and experiences in a non-verbal way. For children, who may not be able to articulate thoughts, sensations, and emotions it is a way of expressing themselves. It is a sensory-based approach that allows a child to experience and communicate on multiple levels–visual, tactile, and more. Art therapy is also very useful for growth and development, cognition and sensory integration, self-regulation, and meaning-making. It is suitable for children who have experienced abuse, death, and other extreme difficulties as well as children with developmental disabilities such as Autism Spectrum Disorder.
