Biography for Rian O'Meara

Rian O'Meara

I graduated from the University of Arizona with a B.A. in Psychology and naturally gravitated to the helping professions. I eventually became a Case Manager at a group home for juvenile delinquent boys in Chicago. In this position, I integrated myself as a surrogate parent, role model, and liaison for these young men to bridge better lives.

The experience gave me leadership responsibilities and I learned essential lessons about healing; most importantly, that no matter how hard one works on the behalf of another person, only that person can choose a better life for himself (or herself). My involvement as a social worker seeded a more thoughtful consideration of how best to assist others.

With my furthering education, I have become a Certified Hypnotherapist through the Hypnosis Motivation Institute (HMI), a Nationally Accredited College. I have begun a private practice in Woodland Hills. I am also on staff at HMI as a hypnotherapy tutor.

The hypnotherapy life is one I have chosen to pursue as a career, so I can attempt to serve others in a way that is thoughtful and giving. My only goal as your hypnotherapist is to positively assist you. In my practice, I blend a unique therapeutic mix of how to balance body, mind and will. For example, as a client, you know what you want: peace of mind, prosperity, self-respect, confidence, the list goes on. I show my clients easy to use everyday tools to achieve their goals and reinforce their ability to use these tools quickly, easily and simply with hypnosis. It is a technique of self-empowerment.
