I have become what I am thanks to my teachers. The first teachers who gave me an insight into the work of the psychotherapist were Anita Plūme and Māris Siliņš at the Latvian Family Centre in the 1990s. A very significant role in my professional career was played by my teachers Linde von Keyserlingh and Hartmut Kirste von Keyserlingh who taught me the professional skills of the family psychotherapy. Their especially refined ability filled with love to perceive the world and people, left a lasting impression on my capability to understand my clients.

We invite all those who are interested in the sandplay therapy method to apply. This is an opportunity to acquire it and use and incorporate it in their work.

The training of the sandplay therapy method is designed for those who work in social services and have a higher education degree in pedagogy, psychology, or social pedagogy. This method can also be integrated by psychotherapists of other trends into their therapeutic practices.

The training will be conducted by Vita Kārkliņa and Līga Rāviņa (licensed trainers and sandplay psychotherapists). Linde von Keyserlingh, a teacher of International and German sandplay and family psychotherapy and a therapist, is the training supervisor.

The training period is two years and three months, with the possibility of receiving certificates of approval.
