Brenda Cox DipCHyp, HPD, MPNLP, MNCH (AccHypSup)
I am a Cognitive Hypnotherapist based in Colchester, Essex.
I specialise in helping you with anxiety, panic attacks, fears and depression. But I can also help you to stop smoking, lose weight, increase your confidence and cope better with menopause symptoms.
You are an individual and your problem is unique to you, so I don’t work from set treatment plans or scripts. I will spend time really listening to the way you experience your problem, plus your goals. I will then design a unique treatment plan and write powerful suggestion patterns especially for you.
I encourage you to start with a free initial consultation. This allows you to find out more about Cognitive Hypnotherapy and the way I work. We can then agree if my approach is right for you. Initial consultations are available via phone or Skype.
In the past I have suffered from anxiety and depression which led to panic attacks. At one stage I was unable to leave the house for a year. I thought I had dealt with these issues following therapy but I obviously hadn’t as they kept reappearing with bouts of IBS (irritable bowel syndrome), weight control issues and unexplained pains.
Luckily I discovered Cognitive Hypnotherapy and realised it doesn't have to be that way. I took control, learnt new ways to think and behave and let go of the constant voice of worry.
I understand the massive impact these issues can have on your life, and also how you can let go of old thought patterns and behaviours even after a lifetime.
Training, qualifications & experience
I qualified as a Cognitive Hypnotherapist and NLP Master Practitioner at the Quest Institute with Trevor Silvester the creator of Cognitive Hypnotherapy.
Since qualifying I have trained extensively in EFT (Emotional Freedom Technique), Working with Depression, EMI Plus (Eye Movement Integration – which is great for working with trauma and PTSD), Weight Loss (Gastric Band Hypnotherapy) and Confident Childbirth (hypno-birthing).
I am also a qualified Hypnotherapy Supervisor with the NCH supporting other hypnotherapists to build safe and ethical practices.
Professional Membership and Your Safety
I am an Accredited Member of the NCH (National Council for Hypnotherapy). I am also a member of the CNHC (Complementary and Natural Healthcare Council), which is the Department of Health approved organisation for complementary therapies in the UK.
As such I am bound by their Code of Ethics which includes your safety, confidentiality and a commitment to ongoing training – so you can always be sure that I am using the safest and most up to date techniques in our work together.
