Early life and education
Peer was born on the 12 of April 1957, in Newcastle, U.K. She studied in London to become a child psychologist. Peer completed her education from Melbourn Village College and Cambridge College of Arts of Technology.
At the age of 25, Peer moved to Los Angeles and became a personal trainer at Jane Fonda's fitness center. During that time, she completed an advanced degree in Hypnotherapy at the Hypnotism Training Institute of Los Angeles. It was also in Los Angeles that Peer studied hypnosis with Gil Boyne, a leader in the field, whose work would profoundly influence the trajectory of her career. She completed additional studies in hypno-healing, advanced hypnotherapy, medical hypnotherapy, and Gestalt Analysis and also spent time at the Pritikin Longevity Center — founded by health pioneer Nathan Pritikin — studying anti-aging, health, and long-term wellness techniques. After working in Los Angeles, Peer returned to London in 1986.
Soon after completing her studies, Peer started her career as a therapist. For over thirty years, Peer has worked with several people including, royalty, rock stars, actors, professional and Olympic athletes, CEOs, and media personalities. During this course, Peer wrote several self help books that became best-sellers.
After years of helping countless individuals change their lives for the better, Peer decided to create and teach a course that would allow other therapists to learn to use her methods. This method is called Rapid Transformational Therapy® (RTT®), a complete solution-based treatment that is informed by various methodologies including hypnotherapy, psychotherapy, neuro-linguistic programming, cognitive behavioral therapy, neuroscience, and neuroplasticity. Focused on delivering fast, effective, and long-lasting results to a client, RTT® and its training is designed to transform the way therapists approach their clients and give them the tools to create rapid and lasting change in just a few sessions.
