For those people that have a specific need/goal or area to explore, sessions can be done on a individual basis.
You can expect a relaxing and comfortable environment to work in and a warm smile from me. On your first session, I will ask you a series of questions to get a picture of what you would like to work on or what your needs/goals are. I then create a specific programme to help you work on your goals/needs. We then do a series of sessions that involve some easy movement postures, breathing techniques and visualisations.
As a participant, you may be asked to either sit or stand for a short while with your eyes closed. I then guide you using my voice and you listening to my instructions, through a series of techniques. At the end of the session you share what you experienced during the session. You can do this either by talking, writing or drawing. This helps you to consolidate and remember and develop an awareness of yourself. The number of sessions will be dependent upon what has been agreed between you and me.

For those wanting to find out more about Sophrology in a more general way, you can attend a group session.
You can expect up to 10-12 people attending the session working in a comfortable, relaxed environment and a warm friendly smile from me as usual. As you will be part of a group, you are not expected to answer any questions for the first session. The sessions will run over a period of time, for example 6 sessions, once a week. All sessions will have a theme, for example, creating stillness, that we will be working on together. As with 1:1 sessions, they will involve some easy movement postures, breathing techniques and visualisations.
As a participant, you may be asked to either sit or stand for a short while with your eyes closed.
