Ronna Brier holds a Masters Degree in Psychology. The focus of her graduate studies was on neuropsychology, studying the biological basis of the brain and how changes in brain functioning affect our behavior.
Her early career focused on counseling, working with inmates in a drug and alcohol counseling program and then with women of sexual and domestic violence. These experiences only fascinated her more with human behavior. She wanted to better understand decisions that people make in their lives and how people can find themselves in the same situations repeating habits and remaining stuck in negative cycles or patterns. She began to realize the power in our thoughts and belief systems. If we believed our life to be our current destiny, so it would be. If we believed we deserved more or could make change, that too could be the course of our future.
On her quest to broaden her learning beyond the traditional knowledge of behavior, she embarked on a search for a more positively focused, naturalistic understanding of human behavior by studying Shamanistic Healing and Usui Reiki, receiving her masters level certification.
Beyond her naturalistic studies of creating healthier, positive attitudes, she also became interested in learning more about the subconscious mind and how it governs us. How these positive thoughts or suggestions given to the subconscious mind can influence some of our body’s physical responses. How our imagination or visualization of an experience can produce a physical response or a change in our behavior, thus creating change in our habits and improving our life.
The desire to help people to create positive change in their habits, behavior and ultimately their lives led her to pursue studies in hypnosis. She received her certification as a Consulting Hypnotist through the National Guild of Hypnotists and also received certification from Brian Weiss, M.D. in past-life regression. She went on to receive further certifications in Hypnosis for Infertility, Birthing, Cancer Support and Medical Hypnotherapy.
Ronna uses hypnosis to help others with smoking cessation, weight loss and healthy eating, stress reduction, fears, self-esteem, confidence, pain management, relationship building, improved memory, learning enhancement, athletic performance, infertility and past life regression. Hypnosis can also be combined with Reiki for healing of the Chakra’s, Aura cleansing or dealing with physical manifestations in the body.
