Sophrology – Your Toolkit for Modern Life

Sophrology is a real life solution and toolkit to true mental, physical and emotional well-being. Referred to as “the new mindfulness” by The Guardian, Sophrology has been around for 60 years when created by psychiatrist and neurologist, Dr Alfonso Caycedo.

Born in the medical world and practised across Continental Europe for decades in settings including schools, hospitals and corporate environments, Sophrology is championed by everyone from mums to Olympic athletes and high-flying CEOs.

In France and Switzerland, Sophrology is used alongside more traditional medical approaches and reimbursed by health insurances. The modalities used by Sophrology are backed up by science and Sophrology itself has a growing body of evidence in successfully helping anxiety, stress, asthma and tinnitus.
