Developing Thinking Skills 

We work together on thinking skills that allow us to be more objective, more serene, more lucid and more open in our daily lives. This work will be particularly useful to professionals in human relations, to parents who wish to have a deeper relationship with their children and to all those who want to develop their ability to better conduct their thinking.


Attitudes make it possible to move forward more confident in reality, more serene in the face of the ruptures in our world and with a spirit that favors astonishment and reflection rather than reaction, defense and withdrawal into oneself.


This practice is mainly derived from Socrates but also incorporates the methodological teachings of more than 2500 years of history of philosophy (for the details of the skills I refer you to my work "philosophical practice" (Eyrolles, 2014).


The goal is to support you in the development of the following skills by practicing exercises:

  • Intellectual and behavioral flexibility: to be agile and adapt

  • Logic and strength of the argument: to have a more objective speech

  • Critical sense and discernment: to identify and respond to problems

  • Analysis: to separate the problems

  • Synthesis: to communicate clearly and get to the point

  • Listening: to understand others

  • Questioning: to investigate oneself, others and the world

  • Conceptualization: to gain height in the face of the complexity of reality


.....and the adoption of new attitudes:


  • Confidence in oneself and in others: to facilitate initiative and commitment

  • Presence: to better perceive your environment and others

  • Authenticity: for more human and transparent relationships

  • Suspension of judgement: to think about a crisis before acting

  • Responsibility: to assume one's freedom

  • Positive confrontation: to build and deepen new ideas

Developing Thinking Skills 

If you want to understand more precisely what this practice consists of, you can make an appointment with me for an individual work session, the first half-hour being free, which will allow you to see the essence of this practice very quickly.


I also have videos available that I can send you.

Finally, you can also give me a call so that we can have a preliminary discussion.

How can we develop individual skills in a group?

Philosophical practice has several original characteristics:

  • it lends itself very well to group work because the others become our "sparing partners" as in a martial art where everyone can train with their neighbor and change partners at will. This does not prevent everyone from individually working on their skills under the guidance of the philosopher-practitioner.

  • she is not interested in intimacy which means that there is no embarrassment in expressing or acknowledging her problems in the face of thought, especially since we are all in the same boat.

  • The problems that philosophical practice deals with are universal:   lack of confidence, feeling of being worthless or not up to it, of being an impostor, compulsive speech, permanent confusion, _cc781905- 5cde-3194-bb3b-136bad5cf58d_ inability to construct an argument or to clearly express one's thoughts, fear of judgement...

  • the group serves as a "sounding board" or choir as in Greek tragedy, as a fully-fledged interlocutor of the dialogue. Thus the group both contains all the individuals and speaks to each individual.
