Our students say it best:

Sophie Mc GrathAlthough it can be quite scary to start a new chapter and start training, it didn’t take me long to get confirmation I had made the right decision. The academy is a model of professionalism with high standards and Florence is an amazing teacher, with a great network, but also one of the kindest human being I’ve ever encountered. As a bonus I made a number of fantastic friends and feel very supported in my new life as a Sophrologist. Sophie


Laurie CastetsAfter different experiences through my travelling and the birth of my children, I needed to find something for myself. I saw a video about Florence and I was amazed by the energy and the happiness she was spreading. I just wanted to be the same. It is simply amazing being able to work on ourselves and sharing with people around us. Laurie


Jenny ScottI was expecting a lot from my Sophrology diploma course and I have not been disappointed: attending the Sophrology academy in Canterbury has indeed been life changing.  The teaching received is shared amongst specialists in their own field; the students on the course are very supportive of one another; and the personal development I gained – accessible to all who attend and practice the teaching – has resulted for me in a much more balanced and harmonious lifestyle.
