As a Sophrologist and Hypnosis Practicioner, I support children (age 6+), adolescents, adults, through short-term counseling, in either individual or group settings, led in either French or English.
In a few words
Sophrology and Hypnosis are personal development practices which take into account your body, mind and emotions. They help initiate a momentum to allow you to bypass an emotional state or modify a behavior which no longer suits you, or to move on to a new stage in life. They develop well-being and a better understanding of one-self, and enable you to activate your full potential.
- Sophrology is based on a combination of breathing and relaxation exercises, as well as the visualization of mental images.
- Hypnosis is a term used both to describe a technique and the modified state of consciousness it is based on. Putting oneself in the state of hypnosis or doing it with a practitioner is thus intentionally reproducing this state of consciousness to serve the objective of the counseling.

I support children (age 6+) , adolescents, adults, seniors during individual sessions in my practice or within their home, or collective sessions within associations, companies, schools, medical structures etc.
During individual sessions the overall therapeutic program, the intention and exercises of each individual session are tailored to your needs and to the precise objective you set out for yourself during the initial session.
During collective sessions more general themes are proposed and adapted according to the group dynamic and context in which these sessions are organized. The exercises are led in a more generic manner.
During individual sessions the overall therapeutic program and each session is tailored to your needs and to the precise objective you set out for yourself during the initial session.
Each session is unique and focusses on a specific step which will enable you to move forward on your transformational journey.
First of all, thank you Alexandra for your support when I needed it. Sometimes it is wise to reach out for help and find someone caring to help us move forward. That is what you will find in Alexandra's sessions, with no judgment and a lot of empathy.Read more...
I initially chose Alexandra because I wanted a bilingual English-French person. I live in the US so everything was done online because of the remoteness. After only 3 sessions, the phobia subsided enormously, which allowed a difficult dental intervention to be done in much better conditions and with much more confidence, despite heavy past trauma. A big thanks for these sessions! I highly recommend Alexandra Dobbs whether online or in person. It should also be mentioned that your collaboration in the treatment is necessary.Read more...
"Well-being and serenity! "
I had several sessions with Ms Dobbs for sleeping disorders and anxiety following a dog attack. Her help was more than precious to me: I feeling good again and serene in my daily life. After each session, I received the detailed breathing exercises to do at home! Thank you for your kindness and the quality of your work.Read more...
"At last I dared"
Why did I wait so long to make an appointment with you?!! What a pity not to have come sooner! Deliverance, serenity, calm, light as air, A huge THANK YOU Alexandra! Everything worked out so well. From the first session, the problem I came for (eating disorder, night-time snacking) was resolved and, above all, I immediately had a feeling of well-being. So then, I wanted to continue with one more session to alleviate a recurring feeling of anxiety, a lack of self-confidence. Again, the session was beneficial. Our 3rd meeting consolidated the work carried out in the two previous sessions. Today, I am ready and eager to continue learning the basics of self-hypnosis. Thank you again, Alexandra, for the way you welcomed me, your professionalism and your kindness.Read more...
"A huge step forward"
I am a practioner in Chinese energetic and acupuncture and a Pilates instructor. I take care of my students, my patients, but I sometimes forget to take care of myself... I had already tried sophrology sessions but I hadn't been convinced. Ms Dobbs is a very good listener and is very constructive. Her great voice, light and melodious helps you reach your objective, guiding you into a personal and intimate journey with concrete exercises. These exercises became my personal tools and they really helped me. Ms Dobbs' support was precious. Thanks to her, my appreciation of sophrology has changed and I greatly thank her. I made huge progress!Read more...
"I am through with cigarettes"
I had 3 hypnosis sessions with Alexandra; my goal was to stop smoking. Eventhough you have decided to stop and that you know it's bad for your health... quitting isn't that easy. I had already tried and failed before this experience. Alexandra found the right words, pulled the right strings,drove me into this state of semi-consciousness and helped me, at last, get rid of this addiction. Thanks to these sessions I have finally said farewell to my old friend, the cigarette! Thanks a lot Alexandra!Read more...
"Taking a step back"
I neede to take a step back from my partner's illness and a few members of my family. Thanks to Alexandra and her Sophrology method I managed to channel my fears, anxiety and anguish and above all accept daily life with the illness and evrything which was preventing me from living in the present moment. I still practice the exercises, some more than others and it helps me take a step back from events which used to impact me too much and I can visualize places where I can withdraw to and take a deep breath. Thanks Alexandra for your ear, benevolence and your voice which , as soon as I hear it, relaxes me. The workshop was a breath of fresh air for me and I will sign up for a new adventure soon. Don't hesiatate to seek Alexandra's support if you need to regain serenity and be tuned to yourself with no judgement.Read more...
"An ocean of serenity"
I was looking for a way to channel my emotions which overwhelm me sometimes and prevent me from being serene. I wanted to try sophrology and it turned out to be a wonderful encounter. A. DOBBS welcomed me great kindness and a willing ear. I very quickly felt a difference, thanks to the exercises she proposed (breathing, being aware of my mental and physical state, letting go, and with movements and images suggesting to get rid of or progressively putting at a distance these negative and toxic thoughts ). Led by A. DOBBS' calm and reassuring voice, I had a feeling of security and well-being from the very firts session and that built up all along. I've totally integrated the exercises and feel pacified and better equipped to manage my emotions and my fears.Read more...
"I feel more confident now"
Alexandra is a solid and excellent professional, with great empathy. It has a wide range of tools, which uses wonderfully. Hypnosis works very well. The work with Alexandra allows to gradually integrate all exercises easily to the daily post-therapy routine. I'm grateful for the opportunity of working my fears with Alexandra.Read more...
"Tools for my anxiety"
Alexandra provided a really accepting place for me to explore some of my anxiety and give me tools to deal with it. I found the combination with hypnosis really helpful. This lead me to a deep relaxation that let me release old tension built over years and has had a lasting effect. It is great that she is also fluent in English which helped a lot with some the cultural differences I experience being an expat. I would highly recommend her to anyone.Read more...
