WHAT IS SOPHROLOGY ?

Sophrology aims to find harmony between the mental and physical. Based on breathing, muscular relaxation and positive visualization, this method allows to mobilize one’s own capacities in order to help to better use one’s potential.

Sophrological accompaniment always aims at a precise and temporal objective defined during the first session. It generally requires 8 to 12 sessions spread over 2 to 3 months.

Pourquoi la sophrologie

WHY TO PRACTICE ?

Sophrology is particularly recommended for :

increasing self-confidence during an important event: job interview, sports competition, exam, hospitalization…,
prepare for childbirth (in addition to the medical assistance offered by midwives),
dealing with all stress-related problems: tension, insomnia, anxiety,
improving sleep disorders,
accepting a health problem and facing it with distance,
helping to cope with a change in situation (bereavement, divorce, moving house…)

Au fur et à mesure que je modifie mes pensées, le monde autour de moi se transforme...

Louise L. Hay

HOW DOES A SESSION WORK?

Each session is part of the accompaniment protocol defined beforehand together, and responds to a precise intention.

After a time of discussion, the session follows dynamic relaxation exercises combining movement and breathing, followed by positive visualization exercises.

Individual work is necessary between sessions in order to repeat the exercises and to anchor the progressive awareness.

Point of vigilance – limits of sophrology: in no case, sophrology replaces a medicinal treatment in the event of disease.  A sophrologist does not carry out a diagnosis and does not make a prescription. Do not hesitate to consult your doctor in case of doubt.

SOPHROLOGY FOR CHILDREN

Sophrology, which aims to improve daily well-being, can be a precious help for children who suffer from anxiety, behavioural problems (hyperactivity, aggressiveness, school phobias, etc.) or relational difficulties (shyness, withdrawal). 

Playful exercises will allow the child to listen to his or her body sensations and to draw on his or her own resources by remembering moments of joy and confidence, but also by projecting success.

Sophrology sessions can start as early as 5 or 6 years old, as soon as the child can express his or her body sensations.
