The Personal Sandplay Training Process

Sue is a Teaching member of BISS, The British & Irish Sandplay Society and ISST, The International Society of Sandplay Therapy.  She is qualified to take prospective sandplay students through their own personal sandplay process, a prerequisite for applying to join the central BISS training programme in order to qualify and use sandplay in their own clinical work.  Sue also provides supervision for sandplay trainees both at her practice in person and also online via Skype.

Introduction to Sandplay Training

Sue runs ‘Introductory Sandplay Training Workshops’ Taster Days and sessions for qaulified psychotherapists, psychologists, counsellors, doctors and other health professionals, teachers, students and anyone else interested in learning more about this kind of therapy.  (See Workshops, CPD & Events page)

Some use these sessions as a first step before doing an ISST recognised personal sandplay process and then applying to join the BISS & ISST sandplay training programme in London.  Others use the sessions for CPD, and some use them to integrate what they have learnt into MA and PhD projects.  

People travel to Sue’s practice in Harleston, Norfolk from as far away as Australia, Hong Kong, New Zealand, USA, Ireland, as well as from many parts of England.

Although most people would undertake sandplay therapy on a weekly or fortnightly basis, health professionals interested in training and who travel long distances can also work once a month for a day or maybe even for a few days at a time when they can fit it in.   Sues practice adjoins Chameleon House, a beautiful unique space www.chameleonhouse.co.uk  where Peter & Ginni offer spacious and comfortable Bed & Breakfast accommodation, and a self-catering holiday cottage which overlooks a large private garden.  These facilities which adjoin Sue's practice offer unique opportunities for people wishing to combine sandplay learning trips with time out for themselves or who want to make sandplay sessions part of a personal retreat or holiday in the country.  There are lots of small local shops and cafes  in Harleston as  well as country walks to enjoy the surrounding area.

Sandplay Training

After a person has completed their sandplay process work with Sue, they can apply to the BISS training committee to be accepted onto the BISS sandplay training course in London.  Although BISS advises ongoing sandplay sessions a minimum of 20 personal sandplays must be completed with an ISST & BISS qualified member before being eligible to apply to train with BISS.

The BISS sandplay training takes place in London.  For further details on this see www.sandplay.org.uk and for more information about The International Society of Sandplay Therapy see www.isst-society.com
