GET OUT OF THE BOX! LANDPLAY TRAINING FOR PLAY THERAPISTS AND CHILD COUNSELLORS

The 2 days of LandPlay training will
Give you an opportunity to explore how it feels to step out of the box and work outside with your clients.

Being outdoors enables the client to grow stronger neural pathways in the 'foundation' brain.

Sensory play comes naturally when we are in an outdoor environment.
