I’m Marian Spurgeon,  Certified Professional Hypnotist, member and Certified Hypnosis Instructor through the International Certification Board of Clinical Hypnotherapists (ICBCH).

I help people create change and feel better by working with the subconscious mind.

Quick Navigation: Smoking CessationFeel Better, Personal Development and Spirituality.

I hold sessions in Davenport, IA, and Galesburg, IL, and Online.

My guiding principle is that you are your own best expert — and I will guide you to recognize, access, and utilize the full power of your inner resources. My sessions are designed to utilize the material you bring to the table and I work without scripts.


I was recently featured on the Worksmart Hypnosis Podcast with Jason Linett

I’m in  a totally different place. I feel so good about my ability to do life in a way that I haven’t since I gave birth. It just feels really good to take care of myself and have that kind of assistance in recognizing specifics [of what I need to be doing to take care of myself] and actually taking action on them.

Stop Smoking

Even 20 minutes after you quit smoking, your body begins to heal.  Ready to quit now? Call me to see if my Quit protocol is right for you. Otherwise, sign up for my free series of craving busters and mindset coaching that you can begin to use immediately. CLICK HERE

Feel Better

Hypnosis can alleviate or eliminate pain, restore sleep patterns, clear brain fog, regulate digestive function, and address emotional components of Fibromyalgia, Crohns, IBS, CFS, and more. Additionally, I’ve worked with mobility, tinnitus, allergies, fear of swallowing, incontinence, shy bowel, and ticklishness.   If you think your problem might be “weird,”  it’s probably not.  Give me a call at 309-509-1036. 

Personal Development and Spirituality

Let’s harness your beliefs, and use any tools, resources, metaphors, and helpful paradigms you have in order to get you to where you need to go.   I also can incorporate sound healing and reiki into hypnosis sessions. Call for a free consultation at 309-509-1036, or click below to learn more about spiritual hypnosis. 

Remote Sessions

Have a session over video conference. If you have a smartphone or computer, you have all we need to have a good session. Call to see if this is a good fit for you at 309-509-1036.
