Biography

Photo of Nicky Wiper BA (HONS) PG Diploma

I am an Accredited Play Therapist, member of the British Association of Counselling  and Psychotherapy (BACP) and the Association of Sand Play Therapy.

I undertook my Sand Play training and process in the UK with Eunice Stagg and  am a Registered Sand Play Therapist.

I initially studied Health and Social Care , completing my  degree  and then training as a lecturer .This culminated in  lecturing in both Health and Social Care and Early Years on University of Essex, University of Suffolk and Anglia Ruskin  University Courses.

During my  time in  teaching  I began to recognise from both my personal and professional  experiences, the impact of societal pressures and  the personal and familial traumas that  affected children and adolescents  educational experiences .This  provided the motivation to change  careers and train in Play Therapy at Canterbury Christchurch University.

Whilst undertaking this training I experienced Sand Play  and felt strongly drawn to this powerful medium.

I now work with adolescents in a specialist school for adolescents with Behavioural, Emotional, and Social difficulties, where I am privileged to   regularly experience and observe the profound and amazing changes in clients initiated by this powerful modality. I feel honoured to be able to be part of holding my clients sand play process.

I have a deep interest in using Sand play   with children and adolescents  who  acutely struggle with the social and emotional aspects of the Education System.

I also have a private Sand Play Therapy practice where I work with children, adolescent and adult clients .
