Working with a sophrologist

A typical sophrology session starts alone or in a group, with a sophrologist guiding you through a series of breathing, physical and mental exercises that will help you grow in awareness of your body, how it responds to stress and the outside world, as well as how it experiences calmness.

Depending on your reason for the session, a series of short exercises and techniques can be provided for working on your own, based on the time you have available.

I really enjoyed my sophrology sessions, the breathing exercises I learnt, helped me with my temper.
