Biography for Peter Bedard, MA, CHt, RScP

Peter Bedard, Certified Hypnotherapist

After a near-death experience, Peter Bedard was faced with the greatest challenge of all: Living a life in severe physical, emotional, and spiritual pain.

The former dancer soon discovered that the anger and frustration he felt because of his injuries were not only keeping him in pain, but were waiting to teach him the greatest gifts of his life.

Now, a celebrated author, consultant, international speaker, and healer, Peter helps thousands of people globally to live a life of full potential while integrating the lessons of pain into balanced living.
