Learn simple ways to program positively for sleep
Re-wire the brain and free your mind of repetitive and anxious thoughts
Based on Dominique Antiglio’s 20 years of experience with her clients to tackle the root cause of stress and sleep issues in a simple and natural way, this course allows your mind and body to completely reset to a relaxed and balanced state, taking you on a progressive journey which addresses each aspect of your life.
Sophrology has helped me acknowledge the role of breath in both myself and my clients and the power of releasing tension & overcoming stress. Sophrology is so practical and something that I can weave effortlessly into my day. It is so helpful to know there is a toolkit available that can be of support during these tumultuous times.
Samantha Clarke - Happiness Consultant, CEO, Author
I never expected to find Sophrology so effective. Its deeply empowering and immediate. After just one session I felt lighter, more awake and less stressed. Stress comes with my job and this is the best way I’ve found to manage it, and take back control. I now use the skills I’ve learned before big presentations and meetings, or just when I feel overwhelmed. It’s been a real game-changer in my everyday life.
Sophrology is similar to meditation in many ways but for me, was easier to stick to. I did a first sessions with Dominique, during which I instantly felt different: lighter, and as if I understood what was going on in my brain and body, much better.
Louise Roe - Author, Journalist, TV presenter
“Just spending 20 mins/day on myself has made a difference to how I feel, both in terms of sleep, but also during the day. I also feel like I have techniques now to help manage stress better and hope to incorporate some of the practices earlier in the day to see if it helps with work stress.”
These Sophrology sessions were like slowly stripping the layers of an onion. The practice and the ‘tools’ started coming together as we continued with you. You have an amazingly gentle hypnotic voice which is very calming and helped in relaxing and gaining the most from the practices.
« I wanted to thank you for opening the door to my sleep control room. It has changed my life!
I sleep so much better, so much deeper I don’t hear my husband snore now.
I am the master of my sleep and my tool box is my treasure trove! »
“It was a wonderful journey. Purely life-changing! I saw how sleep difficulties are not just about sleep. They touch so many contexts of our lives. I am very happy I can sleep better now, it gives me joy and confidence. Thank you so much.”
« This course has helped me with falling asleep more easily, feeling less stressed and calmer throughout the day, and a better relationship with sleep overall. I have learned to accept my worries and emotions, and how to relieve my stress. I am a little more connected with myself, my body, and emotions. »
« I’ve noticed that the daily practice of Sophrology is bearing fruit. I am calmer during the day, and mentally feel more present and positive. As far as my sleep is concerned the results are a little slower but when I wake up during the night, I’m not anxious or stressed anymore. »
« Dominique has attention for every student. She’s open and without judgment. She gave me energy. Her way of making people more aware is motivating. She leaves you free in how you let Sophrology be part of your life. But who she is as a person? She breathes love! »

The pace and course is structured in this way so that we keep a rhythm and to motivate participants to practice that week before the next part of the method is released. This is our way to make sure everyone is going through the process within the timing that allows the best chance for transformation of sleep as otherwise, it will be difficult to see changes taking place.

Sophrology is a complementary therapy not a substitution for medical treatment so you should never stop taking medications without clear approval from your GP.
Yes, you can pay with PayPal, or with a Debit/Credit Card.
All students get access to a private Facebook Group where you can ask Dominique and the BeSophro Team any questions you may have and share your experience with like-minded students.
Being able to relax is an important part of the practice; therefore it’s helpful if you aren’t hungry or thirsty. Equally, it’s advisable not to eat or drink too much just before.
Sophrology does not involve active exercise although you are likely to do simple breathing exercises and gentle movements, whilst standing or sitting. There is no need for special clothes we recommend wearing something you are comfortable in.
Then Sophrology is perfect for you and anyone who struggles with meditative practices! Sophrology offers an easy way to develop focus notably making it accessible through more active standing exercises, which quieten the mind and ground you in your body. For more on this subject see our blog ‘Mindfulness for people who think they can’t meditate”.
Sophrology is fairly new to the UK and US. It is very well established in many European countries and is now growing in popularity in English speaking countries. If you look in our press section, you will discover it has attracted a lot of attention recently, notably thanks to Dominique’s book, which is the first widely published Sophrology book in the English language.
Sophrology is a self-development method based on a practice for body and mind. Sophrology can bring many benefits to feel calmer, empowered and in control. Sophrology is fully compatible with, and complementary to other approaches but does not replace medical or psychotherapeutic treatment.
Do I need to know about meditation or yoga to be able to do the course?
No, the course suits everyone; it is simple and short so people can use the basic tools of Sophrology to manage stress as well as discovering the first step of this unique method.
How does Sophrology compare with other approaches such as yoga, etc.?
All approaches offer different benefits and it is for the individual to decide which might suit them best. The power of Sophrology lies in its combined approach – working on body and mind together to reach another level of awareness and wellbeing. Being in a state of dynamic relaxation makes it easier to focus the mind, enabling you to examine your physical and mental being at a profound level. You learn to take responsibility for your own life and health and how to deal with a range of issues and symptoms. Sophrology not only helps people to positively live the present moment but its practice includes techniques to help prepare for the future (including specific events), or overcome tensions from the past. It is an easy to learn method, something you can learn for a lifetime and apply in many situations.
