Burnout and mental anxiety are increasingly common in the workplace. Too much stress can lead to reduced performance, decreased focus and lack of creativity.
Sophrology offers you a range of techniques to use on-the-go to relax your body and quieten your mind so that you can access your inner resources to reframe negative thoughts, manage unhelpful emotions, build mental stamina and increase your self-confidence to perform at your best.
"Fundamentally, what everyone needs is mental strength and confidence, to manage the mind, just as we manage the outside world" - Mata Amritanandamayi
Where does it come from?
Also known as 'Dynamic Relaxation', Sophrology was created in Spain by neurologist and psychiatrist Professor Alfonso Caycedo in 1960.
For over 60 years, it has been widely used across Europe in diverse settings including corporate environments, elite sport and healthcare and has been advocated by high flying CEO's and Olympic athletes.
It is officially recognised by the French Government and in Switzerland, it is reimbursed by the Swiss National Insurance as it has been proven to reduce medication by 30% after regular practice.
