Maarit Rivers’  therapy helps you to put the joy back in your life.

Do you want to become more connected, empowered, energised, resilient, calmer and joyful?

Do you want to master uncertainty? Do you want clarity to sort things out when you feel uncertain? May it be in your personal relationships, work or health.

I am working with the belief that people have the capacity to change and heal.

Sandplay Therapy

In sandplay therapy the client creates a physical version of his or her imagined world using sandtray and miniature objects. In a sandtray, a client’s inner feeling becomes visible. Healing follows. read more

Art Therapy

In art therapy the client creates art drawing, painting, and sculpture. The emphasis is on the creating process rather than result. Art therapy aids the client to have a supervised release. read more

Play Therapy

In play therapy the child’s experiences, knowledge and anxieties are made known to the therapist through play. This uses musical instruments, balls, puppets, and outdoor and indoor areas. read more

Verbal Therapy

In verbal therapy the client is encouraged to tell stories about their art, sandplay and play. This puts the  whole brain to work, and helps them to make sense of their world and concerns. Or simply just talk about the issues.
