This is a case study of sandplay therapy with a six-year-old girl with anxiety. It concerns her journey of overcoming emotional wounds and experiencing growth. We conducted 20 sessions with the client over 10 months from September 2018 to July 2019. We found that her unconscious processed family problems that nobody expressed in language. The client expressed this through symbolic play in her sand trays. Through the sandplay process, she started to overcome her psychological difficulties. We noted the link between the healing power of the unconscious and her psychological transformation. Thus, our study shows that even if only one child has sandplay therapy, it is possible to deal with family problems or members through it.
