About Dr. Barbara Cox

Motivational meditation programs to change your life.

Barbara started her career as a scientist, having earned a B.A. in Biology from the University of California, San Diego. She worked as an environmental scientist, most notably organizing environmental projects for the Department of Defense (DOD). During her time in this role, she coordinated permits, wrote environmental articles, coordinated with base media to spread the word on new environmental projects, and ran community focus groups.

From there, she branched out into working for environmental consulting firms. “I loved managing large-scale projects; however, I wanted to get involved in more ‘people’ work,” she says, “so I went on to receive a doctorate in clinical/health psychology from Alliant International University (AIU), with further training in hypnosis and peak performance coaching.” Eventually, Barbara ventured forth to study more esoteric subjects, such as Qi Gong and to look at the larger meaning of life, beyond left-brained science.

Barbara Cox, PhD, is a writer, psychologist and coach whose motivational meditation programs and self-help books have been featured in local and national publications, including MSN.com, NBC and Cosmopolitan. She specializes in helping innovative organizations through her classes, trainings, and personalized sessions that blend motivational meditation, intuition, coaching and peak performance tools.

Barbara uses a holistic, integrated approach that incorporates both traditional counseling and goal-setting techniques, as well as alternative techniques such as meditation, NLP, Qi Gong, and hypnosis to help people transform their lives.

She also writes self-help, fiction and non-fiction stories with the themes of individual empowerment, community-building, and personal awakening. She is the author of the self-help book, The Muse Process, published by McFarland Press. Her writings include motivational meditation scripts.
