Some therapist and school counselors have to travel around to do therapy. This can be a bit of a hassel unless you have a creative tool tool box.
You can see how I handle traveling around while doing therapy. It is also great for the school counselor who has to go from school to school to counsel students.
My Traveling Creative Counseling Tools:
I often travel to serve the needs of clients. Below are the tools that I take with me when I am traveling to meet a client.
1. One large traveling crate
2. Bags of miniatures: I love the tubes of animals such as jungle, reptiles, farm, ocean, and circus miniatures.
3. Art supplies (glue, glitter, popsicle sticks, markers, crayons, paper, confetti, sequins, fake gems, ribbons)
4. Puppet Supplies (Paper towel holders, construction paper, small moveable eyes, pipe cleaners)
5. Paper Plates & Card Stock
6. Play Dough
7. Affirmation Jar
8. Small Slinkys
9. Bubble Bottle
11. Copies of activities in the Creative Counseling 101 Ebook (have an idea of what you will use but bring extra activities in case the client needs something else.)
12. Small Empty Boxes
13. Pre-selected books based on the client's needs
14. Small dolls and stuffed animals
15. Magazine’s that relate to a client’s personality (for making clip art).
16. Traveling Sand Tray for sand tray therapy
17. Clip art Cutouts (Computer with access to printer and clip art sites.)
The Creative Counselor is ready to travel with the creative counseling tools based on the client's needs.
This is also a great way to "start" your play therapy, sand tray therapy, art therapy, or creative counseling room.

"Beyond Art Therapy" is the concept from Dr. Stangline that combines all creative fields in therapy. It is not the traditional "art therapy" but goes beyond to include sand tray therapy, play therapy, mindfulness, meditation, color therapy, cognitive behavioral therapy, and a vast majority of other therapies.
For any other type of mental health emergency call your local 911 / Police Number immediately.
