About me

portait of Alexandra Dobbs

Today, as a certified Sophrologist, professional Sophrology trainer and Hypnosis Practitioner, I support those who feel stuck and don’t manage to change by mere willpower an emotional or mental state, or behavior

I combine Sophrology and Hypnosis because it allows me to take into account my client as a whole person (body, mind and emotions); I offer tailored short-term therapies, geared towards a precisely defined goal which we define together.

Choose your destination and regain control; I will be your co-pilot and pave the way.

Previously, for 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.


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.

Supporting expatriates

I specialize in supporting people who are experiencing difficulties with expatriation.

four clocks from around the world

For example

  • I help those who "followed" a spouse who had a professional transfer and who need to transform expatriation into a personal experience, those who don't want to "just be the spouse who followed" and who is waiting for it to pass
  • I help those who have left their country of origin for economic or political reasons and need to heal the trauma of forced exile
  • I help those who find themselves abroad and need to find their bearings and feel good despite the distance, the isolation

I am Franco-American and I have lived in France, in the United States, in England and in Belgium. I have changed schools eight times, I have traveled to more than thirty countries. My current family is tri-national and tri-lingual.

So I am familiar with these issues about having touble defining one's identity when in a different country, adaptating to a new culture, overcoming the feeling of being isolated...

"A gentle and concrete approach"

By A2line

Mrs. Dobbs proved to be very gentle and a very good listener all the way through. She took time during the first appointment to define with me my expectations in order to guide the sessions in the right direction, and to collect my feelings at each new session. This made it possible to target and work on the right topics for me. I also appreciated the fact of having concrete tools to practice sophrology exercises at home and thus be able to prolong the benefits. She also used Hypnosis at times which was also a first for me, like an "icing on the cake" and a nice surprise thank you!

"Very nice initiation at the Western Library of Vincennes"

By Delphine and Denise

Thank you Alexandra Dobbs for this introduction to sophrology at the Western Library of Vincennes! All the participants greatly appreciated the discovery of this practice. Relaxation is guaranteed!

"Now my daughter goes to sleep on her own!"

By Delphine

My daughter had problems falling asleep on her own and she used to wake up at night for years. She immediately felt at ease and felt confident to talk during the sessions. After only two sessions the result were there: quieter nights and general reassurance. The whole family enjoys it! :)
