* In the spring of 2014, a survey was sent out to about 60 recent sand tray clients.

* Over 40 people completed the survey and here are some of their responses to the question,                              "What do you think makes Sand Tray Therapy different from other forms of therapy?"

* Note the survey was distribued anonymously and thus so are the responses.

"It allows for action rather than words and was visual and tactile"

"I have tried a number of types of therapy, and for me I found this process to be the most rewarding"

 

"It's gentle!"

"I got to "play" for the first time in a long time and what was buried inside was able to come out and show itself to me"

"It gets you out of your head and just go with what feels right"

"The effects were lasting because I have really worked through things and let go of the things that I needed to"

"It is a way toward resolving anger, frustration and obtaining peace in a far easier fashion than verbally"

"There was no pressure and the results were enlightening"

"It allows the individual to experience themselves as the expert on their life"

 

"The difference for me was with Sand Tray I walked away feeling 100% happy with the work I had done and more importantly a sense of absolute clarity around what I needed to keep working on"

"It creates self understanding and wisdom"

"There is no power imbalance!"

"It feels intuitive and brings out the little child inside"

"It is a nonthreatening way of connectiong to what is going on in your head and in your life"

"It empowered me to do my work"

"Other forms of therapy did not provide the clarity and deep sense of understanding that I was seeking"
