ETHICAL CHARTER : Your sophrologist's commitment

A sophrologist is like a musician who tunes his musical instrument before playing. His attitude  is essential. It is a question of ethics and humility to thus facilitate a meeting space where the client can be himself and feel safe.

A sophrological work is a commitment of two people (the sophrologist and the client) in an alliance relationship based on trust, respect, non-judgment and professional secrecy.

Sophrology opens up a space for oneself, conducive to a personal refocusing to learn how to better meet your physical and psychological needs, drawing on your own resources.

The regular practice of the Caycedian Sophrology with a professional and then autonomously allows everyone to optimize their capabilities and efficiency on a daily basis.

 As its founder, Alfonso Caycedo, definition, Sophrology is a “pedagogy of happiness”!

Who is it for?

To anyone facing a life event related to physical and emotional disorders: the arrival of a child, a move, an exam, a performance, the occurrence of an illness, the loss of a loved one.

It is also aimed at professionals who wish to develop well-being in their business, for themselves and in their internal human relations with the aim, in particular, of promoting  the quality of relationships and the well-being of members, as a factor for the growth and success of the company.

Among the common questions:

How do I choose a sophrologist?

In order for the mission to be fullfilled, it is essential that a relationship of trust exists between the sophrologist and the client. The feeling is personal. Talking to a Caycedian-trained Sophrologist is a guarantee of seriousness in this area.

Is sophrology personal development?

Yes in the sense that this method allows to take a step back on its own existence, to re-define its abilities and values,  to re-give  meaning to one’s life.

Is sophrology relaxation?

Relaxation is a means and not a goal in sophrology.

Is sophrology hypnosis?

The Caycedian sophrology founded by his Professor Alfonso  Caycedo, is the result of 40 years of research. Neuro-psychiatrist, Professor Caycedo was initially interested in hypnosis because the basis and specificity of his work is the study of human consciousness, one of the 4 major structures in  Caycedian Sophrology. The consciousness he defines as “an energy of integration.”

One of the common aspects with hypnosis is the fact that work in sophrology is done in a deep level of consciousness. The great nuance is the fact that the person is accompanied but is active and autonomous in his practice. In addition, the sophrologist lives the session at the same time as the client.

Is sophrology positive thinking?

Sophrology is a pedagogy of happiness! Its practice reinforces the positive structures of being.

But in sophrology, these structures are not limited to thought. We both mobilize the mind and the body. It is from the feeling and perception of one’s body that the positive aspects of our being, from the feeling and perception of one’s body, will integrate into us, thanks to the energy of consciousness: abilities, values, in the past,  present and a future perspective.

So we’re talking about positive. But this integration is done by living and strengthening the presence of our body.

Is sophrology psychology?

The big difference is that the sophrologist is a pedagogue. His work is oriented on the person to whom he offers specific support. But he is not focused on the “why” of his story but in the “how” to activate and live the most positive aspects of his life. There is no analytical approach to sophrology.

Moreover, the work continues to be done independently by the client, once he has practiced sufficiently with the sophrologist. Sophrology then takes on an existential dimension.

The methodology is rigorous in sophrology. It includes regular exercise.

Is sophrology yoga?

His research and questioning of consciousness led Professor Caycedo  to work for several years in the East, between Japan, Tibet and India where he followed the teachings of Master Yogis. One ofs the fundamental elements between sophrology and yoga is the awareness that one carries to oneself. Breathing is one of the gateways to the practice, promoting the opening of consciousness towards its interiority.

In yoga, breathing allows you to “fix the mind,” to anchor one’s consciousness in the present. In sophrology, the orientation of consciousness will be different depending on the objective.

How to practice sophrology? As a group, as an individual?

It may be beneficial to discover sophrology in a group of people. Through this method, some people want to work individually dealing with specific difficulties.

In the field of prevention, a sophrologist works in conjunction with other professionals to whom he will not hesitate to direct the person according to his needs: doctors, therapists etc.
