Sophrology, which aims to restore harmony between our emotions, our mind and our entire body, has multiple benefits, and this at different levels.

How many sessions are needed?
The number of sophrology sessions to perform depends on your mental health, how you feel, your state of stress. However, it is best to attend at least five classes to learn how to target your vulnerabilities, weaknesses ... which is common in the face of stress.
Sophrology courses last about one hour each.

For an individual session of sophrology, the rates can go from 50 to 80 euros. and 60/40 and 60 euros for an hour. It is advisable to count a surplus if the person wishes to do his homework.
A group session is less expensive. It amounts to about 20 euros. Often, flat rates (by trimester, semester, ...) are proposed and can be interesting if one wishes to practice sophrologieu on a regular basis.
Sophrology sessions are not reimbursed by the Health Insurance. However, some mutuelles or complementary private insurances support sophrology sessions.
