Sandplay Therapy


Heather Lesley-SwanHeather Lesley-Swan, Analytic Psychotherapist, Sandplay Therapist and international consultant has a breadth of professional and clinical experience rarely available. Initially trained in Law, Heather holds a Masters in Psychotherapy, Post-Graduate qualifications in Counselling and Communications Management and cites certification as an Ethics Educator among her qualifications.

Heather’s active involvement with Sandplay Therapy commenced around thirty years ago, with an Australian-based student of Dora Kalff. Her full-time private practice as a Psychotherapist and Sandplay Therapist builds on broad professional experience, giving her keen insight into a wide range of worklife/family and individual concerns. Heather has presented programs and professional papers in Australia,  Europe, UK, USA and Asia. Heather works mainly with adults, and has a particular interest in neuroscience and those living with Aspergers and their families.


Judith MorrisJudith Morris Psychiatric Social Worker and Psychotherapist, has additional training in Sandplay Therapy. Judith has more than three decades of experience, and she is a member of the STANZA working group. She works in private practice and consults in Auckland, where her work is almost exclusively with children and adolescents with a history of neglect, abuse or other trauma in their early years. Most of these children no longer live in their family of origin but have been permanently placed in alternate care.

The theoretical framework of Attachment Theory is embedded in Judith's work, which is informed also by recent research discoveries from neuroscience and trauma impact. Much of Judith’s therapeutic work is based on Sandplay Therapy, augmented by work with other media, such as play, story-telling, music and developmental sensory activities.
