How is 10-minutes day of Sophrology effective?
Consistency and repetition are key in Sophrology and when practised just 10-minutes a day each day, your brain is being trained to focus on what’s most important to you and gradually, your mind-body connection is strengthened and you become more aware of your body and emotions. This awareness helps you to tune into your feelings and through Sophrology, you can learn how to control them and be more open up to new perspectives and adapt to challenging situations.
Studies suggest that practising exercises for 10 minutes a day, such as mindfulness, visualisation and introspection, promotes positive neuroplasticity which, after consistent practice, can be used to rewire and restructure your brain in cognitive and emotional processing.
Neuroplasticity refers to your brain’s ability to rewire itself when it recognises the need to change most, which can have profound impacts on your mental wellbeing. When we become aware of our senses and how we feel during our daily practice, we are able to use this self-awareness to successfully navigate through any stressful situations that arise throughout the day.
With regular practice, Sophrology helps you to become more mindful of your needs, limits, strengths and capabilities so that you can create more happiness in your life.

What is the Facebook online course community about?

Is Sophrology a therapy?
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.
Sophrology is not a substitution for medical treatment so you should never stop taking medications without clear approval from your GP.
Can I eat/drink before practicing?
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.
Can I pay with Paypal?
Yes, you can pay with PayPal, or with a Debit/Credit Card.
What if I can't stay focused?
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”.
What do I need to wear?
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.
Why haven't I heard of Sophrology before?
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.
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 include techniques to helps 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.

Am I too ill/ old/ overweight to do Sophrology?
Sophrology is not strenuous and readily suits most people.
Does Sophrology belong to a particular religion or belief?
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.
What is the Foundation practice of Sophrology?
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.
Who can benefit from Sophrology?
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!
What is Caycedian Sophrology?
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.
