Sometimes situations in our lives might make us wonder how we might do things differently. That might be within a relationship, with colleagues at work or within a family setting. It can be helpful to create the situation in the therapy room, using sandtray and objects, puppets, cushions or empty chairs. Putting a situation in the sandtray is a way of enabling yourself to 'step away' from it, to look at it from different angles and perspectives, and sometimes 'rehearse' what alternative ways might be possible. Available for use in the space are:
Using drama as a means of self expression, taking roles, especially ones which you would not normally take in your life, for example 'the confident one', or 'the strong one' can have the benefit of rehearsing the possible. The therapy room becomes a stage on which you can practice being different versions of yourself, and each of those versions can dialogue with each other in order to create a sense of integration and cohesion in your self identity.
