Sophrology

Sophrology will enable you to regain a feeling of well-being and activate your full potential. It will also enable you to get to know yourself better and face the daily challenges of life with serenity.

Sophrology in a nutshell

Sophrology is a practice that can help you create a greater sense of well-being in your everyday life. It can activate your potential through a combination of breathing and relaxation exercises, mental suggestions and positive visualization methods, which can collectively address your emotions, mind and body. Sophrology empowers you with a greater understanding of yourself and the world around you; it helps you to face daily challenges, with serenity, and anchor yourself in the present moment.

Sophrology acts altogether on your body, your mind and your emotions with a combination of breathing and relaxation exercises, as well as the visualization of mental images.

There are two types of exercises:

  • dynamic relaxation exercises based on smooth movements in association with breathing exercises
  • sophronizations which are visualizations exercises guided by the voice of the Sophrologist.

Sophrology was created in the 1960s by Alfredo Caycedo, a neuropsychiatrist.

It brings together the best of Western and Eastern techniques such as: hypnosis, relaxation methods, positive suggestion technique, meditation, yoga, zazen…

The term Sophrology was inspired by ancient Greek and means the study of the harmonization of consciousness (sôs: harmonious; phren: spirit; logos: science).

"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)
