I discovered Sophrology in my 20’s, at a time when I was lacking direction and confidence. I had been exploring the relationship between body and mind for a while through the practice of dance, physical theatre and jazz singing improvisation but Sophrology took this exploration a step further, or should I say a step deeper! Inside there was a whole world and resources in hand for a more anchored and balanced self, easily reachable with Sophrology!
In my 30’s the births of my three sons were a really empowering experience where I remembered the power of listening in, but even more so, the power of connecting to your body and your intuition. In that time again, 10 years later, all the techniques of Sophrology, yoga and singing kicked in.
Also, raising three boys close in age made me experiment my limits. In that time, I did things the wrong way: rarely listening or taking care of my own needs. As I reached breaking point, the phrase of Ghandi came to my mind “be the change you want to see in the world”. I had to start with me to care for my family and others better. I had to start within. So I looked for somewhere to go back to my Sophorlogy practice and as I looked for a group, I came across the Sophrology Academy in Ashford:… that was it! Sophrology was not only the next obvious step for me but also to my career. So, after a career as a Project/service manager in Arts, Education and lastly Health, I decided to train as a Sophrologist: teach people how to recentre in mind, body and spirit, define their value and goals and connect to their inner resources to increase their wellbeing and create the successful life they dream of.
I see adults, children, adolescents and families for one to one sessions or in a group in North London (Muswell Hill, Highgate area) and corporate people in groups and workshops in Central London. I also work in schools with pupils and teachers.
