SOPHROLOGY

What is Sophrology?

“There’s a new relaxation technique in town and it’s here to stay. Sophrology may not sound familiar to you, yet: as a complementary health technique it’s been around for over fifty years in Continental Europe… with great reviews from those who have tried it, Sophrology is the new frontier in stress management.” The Huffington Post

Do you know that practising relaxation and Sophrology is paramount to resetting your body and brain chemistry? 

By practising regularly, you will enhance your well-being, regulate your stress and anxiety, and find a more balanced, serene life to achieve your goals.

 

By slowing down the brain waves, you rejuvenate your brain chemistry, foster a calmer state of mind,

and release tensions building up in your body. Practising just 20 minutes of deep relaxation is actually equivalent to 2-3 hours of sleep!

 

The person-centered method I offer is a blend of Western science (hypnotherapy, relaxation techniques, cognitive-behavioural & positive psychologies, neurosciences, coaching, PNL) and Eastern traditions (yoga, zen, breathing, mindfulness, meditation, visualisation).

 

Indicated in a wide range of areas, relaxation and Sophrology therapy can help you with:

 

  • pregnancy and birth preparation

  • stress and anxiety management

  • sleep issues

  • event/exam preparation

  • sport competition

  • pain management

  • interpersonal communication

  • concentration

  • burn-out prevention and recovery

  • fears and phobia

  • weight management

  • addictions

  • and as a complementary therapy to medical treatments (e.g. chemotherapy, depression, surgery preparation and recovery).

 

This therapeutic method has been widely used in continental Europe for decades in care homes, hospitals, birth centres, pain management centres, schools, businesses, and in sport competition.

 

What to expect during a Relaxation and Sophrology session:

 

Breathing techniques

Mindfulness

Gentle intentional movements called dynamic relaxations

Body and mind relaxation techniques

Visualisation

Self-conditioning techniques

During the first session (1h 30m), we meet and discuss your background and your needs, and then we usually schedule 6 to 12 sessions (-/+ 1hour) to help you achieve your objective.

 

Testimonies:

 

"Amazing!! Laetitia is amazing! I got pregnant at the beginning of the pandemic and Laetitia offered to do one-to-one sessions (online) throughout my pregnancy. It helped me so much to keep my anxiety as low as possible! I could not recommend it enough! Best self-care you could gift yourself during your pregnancy!"

Charlotte - Membership Manager

 

"I confess that for unknown reasons I had not been sleeping that well for a while, so yes I tried Sophrology yesterday... I went to one session with Laetitia and believe it or not I slept like a baby last night! As therapists, we always look after other people n forget about how to treat ourselves. Anybody can suffer from stress n tension in the body n everybody thinks they know how to relax till u tried Sophrology... I think Sophrology teaches you how to relax n how to concentrate, which is very helpful for people working under pressure or who have been building up stress for a long time... If you also suffer from similar symptoms, or just for general well-being, give Sophrology a try. It may help! Thumbs up for Sophro by Nature"

Karen - Therapist

 

”I very much enjoyed the session yesterday. For the first time in a month I have no contracted neck, jaws, shoulders. I slept quickly at night (it takes me about 2h to relax to sleep once in bed, this time it took me 30 mins!). The bubble image was appropriate and useful, I still can picture it in my head in spite of not having gone through the exercise quite completely. Also the forest, and the bubbles coming... The tone was soft, the rhythm slow, I even totally disconnected at points. This hardly ever happens to me, I remember spending mindfulness classes wishing for it to finish :D”

Maria - Lecturer

 

"This was my first experience of Sophrology and I knew that it was focussing on relaxation methods but I wasn't prepared for just how relaxing it could be! Laetitia held space for our small group and talked us through 3 stages of relaxation: breathing techniques, dynamic movement and a guided meditation. I have never fallen asleep sitting up without a significant back to my chair, but I almost did numerous times. This is definitely testament to how relaxing the combination of techniques were and how calming and soothing Laetitia's voice and overall nature is. I would definitely recommend Sophrology to people who may be put off by their immediate reaction to meditation. These sessions with combined methods of relaxation are very effective."
