What’s with the bubbles?
La Bulle de Repos means The Bubble of Rest.
People have told me that just hearing the name makes them feel better! I am delighted to hear it but the name is just a start! Wait till you try our programmes!
So yes, I am a bit “bubble-mad”, have you noticed? It all started years ago, when I created a Sophrology exercise with bubbles. Basically, it is about imagining that each time you breathe out, you breathe out dark bubbles. And each time you breathe in, you imagine you are breathing in golden bubbles. A little bit of body spring cleaning, fun-style! It has become my signature exercise.
A bubble is also a place where you can get away from the world for a while and feel safe and in peace and quiet. A space of freedom and rest. In French “to bulle” even means to do nothing and rest.
So I felt this illustrated very well what we are trying to do here: a bit more light, lightness, comfort and peace….
How was it created?
I created La Bulle de Repos in 2017 after many years of work and experience.
Since I started working as a sophrologist, I have worked with many people suffering from burnout, extreme fatigue, hyperstress, suffering deeply one way or the other, people who, like me when I was in burnout, have had to put their lives on hold and in perspective and rebuild themselves from the ground up.
I soon realised that using sophrology with them was essential (after all, it is what helped me out of my own burnout) but that it was also essential to use other therapies to have an even more durable and profound impact.
I therefore started to work very early on with other specialists: naturopaths, psychotherapists, coaches, homeopaths, acupuncturists, massage therapists…
My clients were also asking for a space of calm and disconnect to renew more fully. That’s when I understood that retreats, programmes in particularly calm and revitalising places were a must to rebuild themselves.
The calm and serenity of the Creuse countryside, where my family has its roots, has always been my own source of inspiration and regeneration. It felt natural to try and share this serenity.
I also have a passion for teaching, sharing my experience and expertise so that more Sophrologists around the world can help people with this amazing technique wherever they are. I first created The Sophrology Academy in England so that sophrology could spread in English, which had not happened before, and then opening a school in the Bulle in France was an obvious move.
I also train sophrologists on the particular subject of burnout so that this syndrome may better known and fully recognised. Many have decided to follow me in the Bulle adventure by becoming partner-sophroloigists and offering the Bulle programmes in their area.
