We propose a control mechanism for the stabilization of symmetry-broken modes in Bose-Einstein condensates and optical beams trapped in double-well potentials in the presence of symmetric or asymmetric noise. The control, based on periodic π shifts of the phase in one well, is demonstrated for solitons and in the two-mode approximation. The latter setting is considered in both the mean-field and quantum (Bose-Hubbard) regimes.
