Bonjour, I’m Marion Beauregard, and my passion is to help you reach harmony on a physical, emotional and mental level, help you feel whole again, full of vitality and confidence. Using a combination of Sophrology and Complementary therapies, I work with men and women who want to approach life’s events in a calm, positive and serene way.
I am originally from the South of France. I settled down in the United Kingdom in 2008. My interest in health and wellbeing and personal development developed 6 years ago when struggling through a period of self-doubt and unhappiness. I worked in an office environment, in sales or marketing. I felt completely out of place and disconnected from myself and my real aspirations. My mood deteriorated, I became irritable, I wasn’t good company to anyone and I isolated myself from others. I needed to change direction; I quit my job and left for a few months to volunteer in Peru teaching French and English in a deprived area of Nasca. I needed a break to try something else, clear my mind and open up my perspectives. I had already some volunteering for our family-run NGO Association Nepal building a school in Nuwakot, a small village in the Valley of Katmandu. Through these volunteering jobs, I discovered a passion in helping people and knew I needed to retrain in a profession that would enable me to just do that. By the end of my trip to Peru, I decided that I did not want to go back to work in the same field. I travelled back to the UK and worked with a life coach to help me identify the new direction I wanted to pursue. My interest in all things health and wellbeing became clearer session after session and I decided to retrain first as a massage therapist and reflexology.
Having come across and practised some Sophrology before in my home country, I decided to expand my skills and explore the discipline in more depth. I enrolled on the practitioner training course which was a real eye opener for me. Not only did it change my personal life but it also confirmed that my change of career was the right path for me. Amongst many other things, it has taught me how to relax both physically and mentally and how to use my positive resources to achieve my potential, live happily in the present moment but also positive and confident about my future. I practice on a daily basis and have never felt as empowered, alive and aligned with my values than I am today. I became a certified Sophrologist and I now feel that I am exactly where I need to be, helping people reconnect with their natural ability to feel calm, positive and full of vitality.
