What is sophrology?

Sophrology is a fantastic blend of Eastern and Western techniques. Inspired by yoga and progressive relaxation, hypnosis and mindfulness, it was developed as a unique and structured method by neuropsychiatrist Professor Alfonso Caycedo.

It is a very established technique on the continent, especially in France. Sophrology is used in many different fields: hospitals, schools, corporate world, sports and performance just to name a few.

It is based on gentle body movements, breathing exercises, concentration and visualisation
techniques.

Sophrology suits everyone because the exercises are very simple to do and are very adaptable.No matter your health condition, physical or emotional state, sophrology is a simple yet effective method which can be tailored to your specific needs.

Sophrology is a structured method to help you face daily challenges, improve your quality of life and restore harmony between body and mind. It is an empowering technique that will allow you to feel in charge of your own emotional and physical wellbeing.

However, sophrology is not a cure and will never replace a medical treatment. Also it is not a magic wand. It is a discipline which requires commitment and practice. You usually get out as much as you put in.

If wellbeing is a priority for you right now and you feel committed to give sophrology a real try and practice regularly, then take your first step into wellbeing right now.

What do clients say?
“After a few sophrology sessions I was able to become more mindful and able to relax at times when I was very stressed. I also managed to calm down my symptoms of IBD which were normally made worse with stress. The calming techniques worked really well and I became more conscious
of what my body was telling me. Now I use some exercises on a daily basis.” S. Tariq “I suffered from anxiety, depression and insomnia. Practicing sophrology enhanced my ability to relax. I had a better perspective on my problems and thoughts. I was able to reconnect with my
body and be more present instead of feeling stressed about the future.” J. Armitage “I felt more energetic, less tired, less overwhelmed, more able to focus and to balance my work and non-work activities. I was able to sleep better at night and I was generally happier.” A. Hornsey
