Once you’ve learned the basics of Sophrology, in Level One, you can move on to taking this Level Two training. In this eight lesson course, you work with developing your powers of concentration and observation, with stimulating your memory and imagination, and with deepening the work of ‘enhanced mindfulness’ that sophrology offers.
In addition, you work with the ability of your consciousness to travel in both time and space, and you learn a powerful method of contemplation.
This Level Two training is complete in itself, so you don’t need to finish the further two levels to benefit from what you have learned. But if you wish, you can progress to the other levels at any time in the future.
This training course is interactive and mentored, so you can share experiences and ask questions, and is offered in conjunction with
"This course is life changing! I am more confident, less anxious, calmer, and I sleep better. Through this course, I have worked to overcome a fear of dogs and a debilitating fear of standing up and speaking in front of a group. I feel comfortable in my own skin and able to plan for an optimistic future. Sophrology Level Two continues on from Level One working with body awareness, the muscles and tendons and perception – focussing on the five senses, and even the space around the body along with meditation techniques. All these exercises have helped me significantly."

"When I commenced Level Two I was at a very low point in my life. I had really hit bottom, being physically and mentally exhausted and lacking the motivation to function on any level. This was frightening as I have always been on top of my game. I persevered with the Level Two exercises, which focussed on the senses, and channels began to open between mind and body. I was reminded of my potential and began to tap into deeper inner levels which provided me with the tools and ability to turn my health around. Sophrology gives direction when none seems evident."

"Sophrology has provided me with a unique combination of tools for relaxing quickly and for staying relaxed and aware in challenging situations. Philip's instruction is clear and detailed without being overwhelming. I appreciated the Level Two course as it built on the Level One skill of releasing stress by adding new techniques for not becoming stressed in the first place."

"Having begun practicing sophrology two years ago, the results of doing so have really shown themselves in the last few months, which coincided with my working on and completing Level Two, where on two occasions the Futurisation exercises helped me to both calm down, then eliminate a hiatus hernia attack within a period of weeks, and to gain the confidence to chair my first meeting in 23 years. Sophrology really has changed my life, but whereas Level One set up the regular practice, it was in Level Two that I felt immediately comfortable and inspired. Thank you so much."
- Steve Gladwin, Meifod, Powys, UK
"I am grateful I journeyed to Level Two which developed body awareness and introduced fun visualisation and contemplation practices that sparked my imagination. The course empowered me to courageously approach challenging situations. I am more hopeful about positive outcomes, rather than allowing fear and negativity to stop me achieving my goals. I am curious and excited where Level Three will take me next."
