Sandplay Therapy

Sandplay therapy is a nonverbal therapeutic method based upon C.G. Jung’s theories of psychology and symbolism. This rich, deep technique boasts a long and distinguished history dating back to the 1930s. First developed by London pediatrician Margaret Lowenfeld, and further refined by Jungian analyst Dora Kalff, sandplay is practiced in a variety of settings – including therapy practices, hospitals, and schools – in 22 countries around the world. Dr. Thompson offers sandplay as a means to directly engage the emotional depths of the mind, and uses it in conjunction with talk therapy to help all aspects of the human psyche to heal.

What Dr. Thompson has to say about sandplay therapy:

“I am an associate of Sandplay Therapists of America (STA), and practice using the philosophies and techniques of this distinguished organization. The type of sandplay I offer is distinct from other types of play therapy offered in the Lubbock area. It relies on Jung’s principles of symbolic representation, the self-healing capacities of the human spirit, and a therapy environment that fosters unconditional acceptance and nonjudgment.”
