Brenda Cox - Colchester Hypnotherapist

How Can I Help You?
I’ve been a full-time Cognitive Hypnotherapist since 2009 and over the years have helped many people let go of anxiety, panic attacks, fears and depression. In the past I’ve also suffered in these areas myself – so I know that Cognitive Hypnotherapy really works.
However, Cognitive Hypnotherapy can work successfully with any problem that stems from the way that you think or feel. So I can also help you stop smoking, let go of emotional eating, 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 an initial free consultation. This allows you to find out more about the way that I work, and ask any questions you may have. We can then agree if my approach is right for you. This conversation is available via phone, Skype or at my office.
As I said, in the past I suffered from anxiety and depression, which then led to panic attacks. At one stage I didn’t leave the house for a year. I thoughI had dealt with these issues following traditional therapy, but I obviously hadn’t as they kep reappearing.
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 was finally able to 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.
After qualifying as a Cognitive Hypnotherapist and working full-time for several years I decided I wanted to do more. So I also trained as a hypnotherapy supervisor. This means that I help to support other less experienced therapists to ensure they are running safe and ethical practices.
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 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.

Everyone is an individual, so it is impossible for me to put a 'one size fits all' price on my website. During our free initial conversation you can tell me a bit about yourself, your problem and your goals and we can then agree the right package of sessions and support for you.
But, I hate websites that don't list prices so here are some guidelines.
Packages provide full support whilst we are working together, and include MP3 recordings, handouts, email, Skype, phone and text support if appropriate for your problem. Prices start from £280, and breakthrough sessions start at £210.
We can have your free initial conversation by phone or Skype or in person at my office.
