I teach the latest holistic therapy in the UK - sophrology - which is a fantastic blend of Western and Eastern techniques. Sophrology is well established where I come from, France.
How did I come to sophrology?
Sophrology was recommended to me by a neurologist at the time I started treatment for MS, a condition I was diagnosed with during my PhD. At that time I was not into complementary therapies at all. However since it was the neurologist’s advice, I decided to give it a try.
Oh my…it absolutely transformed my life. It helped me cope with the side effects of the treatment but it made me feel hopeful and positive again about life and stop worrying about the future.
What I particularly liked about sophrology was the fact that it was so empowering. Among the chaos that the diagnosis had brought, here was something I could do for myself, on my own, anytime, anywhere. I came to realise that I had all the resources within myself to improve my wellbeing and live a happy life.
This experience was so transformational that I decided to become a sophrologist myself to share this wonderful method and help as many people as possible.
Why work with me?
I have been practicing sophrology for more than 10 years. I have been through the upheavals and emotional rollercoaster of being diagnosed with a chronic condition and all of this happened while I was doing my PhD, so believe me, I know a thing or two about stress and overwhelm as well!
Sophrology was a great support for me and I believe it could be for you too.
Can I help you?
I help people who have been diagnosed with a chronic condition and are looking to come to term with the diagnosis or want to manage their condition more positively on a daily basis.
I also work with busy professionals and mums who are highly stressed and want to restore their balance and harmony in their lives and avoid burn out. Finally I work with people who are in burn out already.
If that’s you, then the answer is YES, I can help you but here is the catch:
- Sophrology is not a cure, it is a complementary therapy and will never replace a medical treatment.
- Sophrology is not a magic wand. You usually get out how much as you put in. I see sophrology as a discipline. It’s something you need to practice regularly to feel the benefits. If you wanted to get fit you wouldn’t go down the gym only once a month, would you?
I think sophrology wouldn’t be as widespread as it is in France if it wasn’t working, however I can offer no guarantee of results. The work will depend on you.
