I am Franco-American and I have lived in France, in the United States, in England and in Belgium.
Over 25 years, first as a Design Consultant then as Internal Communication deputy Director in various business sectors (leisure and media, automobile, non-profit organizations, pharmaceutical), I was committed to listening to individual needs and was eager to contribute to people’s well-being by giving sense and meaning to their work and living environment. Despite the often tense economic and social contexts, I was particularly drawn to actions which favored exchanges among individuals, fostered human diversity among teams, offered individual and collective development opportunities and gave way to didactic information about internal policies.
Today, as a certified Sophrologist and Hypnosis Practicioner, I am eager to pursue the mission to help people which I set out for myself. I was drawn to Sophrology and Hypnosis because it takes into account the person as a whole (body, mind and emotions); it offers tailored short-term therapies, geared towards a precisely defined goal. It helps you develop ressources to find the emotional state or behavior which you need and is right for you today.
I am a member of several local associations and eager to take part in developing a society more respectful of mankind and of our environment. I also follow up on thoughts and studies about child education because children are tomorrow's citizens of this world.

"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.
"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.
"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.
