What is Sophrology 

Sophrology is an alternative medical technique created by Professor Alfonso Caycedo, a psychiatrist, in the 1960s in Spain.  

 

It's a complete, rigorous and structured method that combines the benefits of breathing, grounding through the body and positive visualisation. It will help to calm the mind, so that you can be more present in yourself and your environment.

Over the course of our sessions and your training, you will rediscover a sense of calm and a relaxing presence within yourself. Sitting or standing, with the help of my voice, you will reach a level of awareness somewhere between wakefulness and sleep, in which you leave more room for your body and the possibility for your mind to take a break, and become more aware of the positive aspects of your life. 

Tou will soon find a calming and relaxing presence within yourself.

 

As the sessions progress, you'll become autonomous in your practice, and leave with your own well-being toolbox, which you will be able to use all your life.
