May be I need help to meet my objectives

SD is a busy woman. Family and 3 kids, and a PhD on its way…
She has been studying hard to reach that level, several years. Today she needs a « booster » to finish her PHD work. I coach her using different sophrology exercises that she tapes during the session.
This way, she can practice at home by herself, as she listens to the session again.
Here is what she says : « Many thanks Béa, what a crucial support you gave me to complete my PhD!!!!!
After a quick review of sophrology during pregnancy, I was interested in improving the practice for wider applications …
It exceeded my expectations! From the second session I could already feel my concentration was getting better, my work more efficient and my feelings untroubled.
The sessions of deep relaxation Beatrice proposed me were of great help to keep right timing, meet objectives and get more confident.
It is like a magic tool, I can recall anytime, anywhere with ease … to bring the delightful feeling of being in the right path …  »

Just a little booster to reduce stress and increase comfort and satisfaction…

Claire, english speaking client

Mars 2008. Claire, english speaking client. She lives in Canada and we worked by phone and e-mails. What she says about it : « I worked with Beatrice during an exciting time of transition in my life. I appreciated Beatrice’s professionalism and her commitment to serving her client to the best of her abilities, as well as her energy and genuine interest in my agenda. I found Beatrice to be a coach who was always encouraging me to play a bigger game, and raise the bar higher in terms of what I could achieve. She is also very insightful in terms of giving feedback about what she notices about a client. I was impressed with Beatrice’s ability to coach in English, and believe that she has a valuable contribution to make to clients’ lives, whatever the language of the coaching conversation. » Mars 2008
