Why Sophrology Works for Sleep?

  • Sophrology’s unique combination of breathing, relaxation, movement and visualisation balances the nervous system when it’s agitated, supporting us to switch on the parasympathetic nervous system, helping us feel calm, recuperate, and settle into quality sleep.
  • Slow, deep breathing results in melatonin production, an essential sleep-inducing hormone which calms the nervous system and promotes relaxation.
  • Visualisation combined with relaxation promotes positive conditioning as sleep improves, reducing negative stress triggers and anxieties towards sleep.
  • Mindful movement helps focus our thoughts throughout the day, helping the mind settle into a state of calm before bed.

This course should be taken as part of a holistic lifestyle of well-being and is not a substitute for professional medical advice.

CBT is an analytical form of therapy that explores your thought patterns to help you process and think differently.

BeSophro believes that in order to truly overcome sleep problems, you have to tap into your mind in conjunction with your body. We not only use the mind-body connection to reset your beliefs and resistances but we also use it to directly influence your biology through breathing, relaxation, visualisation and movement.

Sophrology will provide you with a toolkit that will work for your personal needs. The program’s objective and exercises are designed to allow you to fall asleep, stay asleep and conquer the aspects that were previously hindering your sleep. Once you have mastered this practice, you will become your own sleep and awareness expert and will no longer have to depend on deep analysis, relaxation music or sleep restriction techniques.

Not at all. Sophrology will complement any type of alternative sleep problem-solving method such as medication, a different program or a sleep restriction technique. However, we advise you to talk to your GP/therapist before enrolling in our program if you are using another method, to ensure that it doesn’t go against their advice.

Sophrology is a complementary therapy not a substitution for medical treatment so you should never stop taking medications without clear approval from your GP.

Sophrology was originally developed by the medical world as a means to cure sleep issues. Nowadays, it is used as a form of treatment in sleep clinics across France and Switzerland.

Sophrology is a blend of Easten practices that use yoga and meditation, along with the sound of voice and other balancing methods, coupled with Western science such as relaxation, phenomenology, neurology and psychology. It has been designed to both balance and empower the mind, body, emotions and the way in which we respond to our surroundings. The unique combination of relaxation, movement, visualisation and breath work will help you to withstand the pressures of modern-day society in a simple yet effective way.

You may not see instantaneous results after your first session. Life changes take time, especially if you have been experiencing sleep issues for many years. This course will consist of daily 15 minute practices across a 7 week period, where you will begin to see changes in your sleep pattern.

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”.

Sleep issues are often a product of an extensive range of different factors. Our sleep course covers a 7 week period where you will be supported throughout.

The timeline of change is dependent on your individual circumstances. Some of our clients see an immediate difference, whilst for others it takes longer. The tools that are provided throughout our program are powerful and positively beneficial if practised daily.

Shifting sleep is often a long term journey, where the body and mind change when they are ready to do so. This program is about taking small steps to shift our overall consciousness. I have seen the positive effects of this practise too many times and I am confident that it will change the way in which you view sleep to some extent.

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.

Sophrology is not strenuous and readily suits most people.

No, Sophrology is not connected with any religious beliefs. It is a discipline independent of any dogma or doctrine, which was born out of the medical field in Spain. Sophrology supports people in finding more happiness, freedom and responsibility.

The Foundation practice of Sophrology is the starting point of the Sophrology programme. It includes simple exercises you will go through in some form or another at the start of whatever Sophrology level you practice. To know more about the 12 Levels of Sophrology, click here. It is the basis on which the whole method is built in its traditional form. You learn to connect with body and mind, relax, discover the 5 systems model (a simple way to map your body), let go of tensions and tune into your positive resources. It is in itself a powerful stress-management practice as well as a basis to practice the whole method. Practically you will learn a unique combination of movement and stillness, standing and sitting exercises, breathing, relaxation, and concentration so you learn to dive into a dynamic relaxation state and start to tune into your resilience, find more balance and happiness.

People of all ages, cultures, social levels and religions can benefit from practising Sophrology. Sophrology is a gentle but effective technique to help calm the mind, relax, sleep better, deal with anxiety and stress, prevent burn out or to prepare for important events. Sophrology has been widely practised across Continental Europe for decades in different settings including schools, hospitals and corporate environments and championed by everyone from Olympic athletes to high-flying CEOs!

Caycedian Sophrology refers to the practice of the method as laid out by its Founder Professor Alfonso Caycedo who founded Sophrology a new discipline and name meaning “study of consciousness in harmony”, in 1960. He was an Associate Professor of Psychiatry at the Medical School of Barcelona and a doctor, neurologist and psychiatrist at Barcelona Hospital Clinic. Born in Colombia, Professor Caycedo travelled the world in search for new answers to provide better mental health care; he wanted to find an alternative form of therapy for psychiatric patients to avoid traumatic interventions like electroshock therapy. Professor Caycedo spent his lifetime studying the human consciousness and how it can change its states and development.

In order to bring more harmony, Sophrology works on consciousness using a scientific approach to allow patients to have a better quality of life. Caycedo coined the term Sophrology in 1960 and created the first Sophrology clinic in Madrid in the same year. Consciousness, according to Caycedo, brings together all the elements that make life meaningful.
