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...

"No more spider phobia"


I wasn't convinced that anyone could help me with my spider phobia, and yet! Alexandre Dobbs managed to change my mind. By listening and understanding in order to find the right approach. I'm not going to become a spider lover, I'm afraid of them, but the sessions helped me to play down the sight and thought of the bug. A phobia is an irrational reaction. Mine has now been transformed into a more comfortable fear. Before, I couldn't look at a photo, even from a distance... now I look at a real spider up close. Go ahead, because this phobia puts up so many constraints... so give yourself a chance. (Google review)

"a great help"

By Lara

Ms Dobbs has been a great help. She is very calm and empathetic. It was easy to build up trust to her. In only four sessions she allowed me the progress I have been working on since months. The communication in English was good, even though I am not a native speker she always understood what I was trying to say. I will definitely come back (Google review)
