The Sophrology Academy is the very first training centre in the UK teaching Sophrology: training fully qualified and recognised Sophrologists and offering its expertise to the general public.

The Sophrology Academy is a member of the prestigious FEPS (French Federation of Sophrology Professional Schools), recognised as a school of excellence in Sophrology.


Sophrology means “the science of the consciousness in harmony”. Created in Spain in 1960 by a neuro-psychiatrist, it is a life-balancing technique aiming at an alert mind in a relaxed body. At the crossroads between Western relaxation and Eastern meditation, it is simple and does not require complicated postures or large amounts of time each day. It is also very flexible and adapts to the person’s needs with tailor-made programmes.

Sophrology uses a very practical set of tools: relaxation, breathing, visualisation and simple movements.

Sophrology can help with: stress, anxiety, self-confidence, preparing for exams, speaking in public or interviews, pre and post-natal, sports mental preparation, stage performance, insomnia, burnout, chronic fatigue, pain, depression…

It has been used intensively in France, Switzerland, Belgium, Spain… for more than 55 years in hospitals, schools, companies, sports coaching…


For the first time in the history of Sophrology, two schools get together to offer a bilingual Sophrologist training!

CEAS Paris, which will celebrate this year its 40 year anniversary, and The Sophrology Academy, the first Sophrology school of England, opened in September 2015 their first bilingual training, a unique offer in the world of Sophrology.  They are both members of the prestigious FEPS (Federation for Professional Sophrology Schools) and they offer a 2-year training based on their usual top-quality training. The Advanced Diploma delivered at the end is officially registered in France with the Répertoire National de la Certification Professionnelle (RNCP) as equivalent to a 2-year undergraduate degree and fully recognised in the UK.   The classes are taken alternatively in Paris and Canterbury and will allow the emergence of a new generation of Sophrologists able to work in truly international situations.

Next course starts in September 2016 (full). Enquire about our September 2017 entry.
