Beach Art Play and Therapy
The word Synchronicity comes to mind when drawing in the sand at Polzeath. How could it be that Carl Jung was also here and what influence did the summer visit of 1923 have upon him?
The Jungian Sandplay method of therapy was developed by Doria Maria Kalff. Her fascinating story contains synchronicity with Jung's and there is much to gain from drawing on the beach and/or going to see a professional Sandplay therapist.
Although I studied Psychology at Durham University I have no qualifications or expertise in Sandplay therapy. I have accidentally leapt out of the Sandplay therapy box, so to speak, and can just offer you a guiding hand to a larger canvass and some basic drawing tools. I can also help you frame, explore and record your art... but then the rest is up to you.
Carl Jung knew that, "Images and Symbols are the language of the unconscious" and all about the "healing power of play". Both make a visit to the beach for some beach art play and therapy a worthwhile pursuit that I am more than happy to help you discover. BOOK NOW!
