Welcome to Quad Cities Hypnosis. I’m Marian Spurgeon,  National Guild of Hypnotists Certified Consulting Hypnotist, and member of the International Certification Board of Clinical Hypnotherapists. I am also an instructor of the Profound Somnambulism Protocol.

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

Quick Navigation: Smoking Cessation, Weight Loss, Feel Better, Kids, Personal Development and Spirituality.

I hold private and group sessions in Davenport, IA, and Galesburg, IL, and Remotely (during office hours). All local appointments come with a Zoom link in the confirmation message so that you can hold the session remotely if you prefer. 

My guiding principle is that we all have internal resources that are vast, available, and largely untapped. You are your own best expert — and I am an expert at guiding you to recognize, access, and utilize the full power of those resources.  My sessions are completely individualized, and I work without scripts. 


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

Lose Weight

Hypnosis is not a diet! It’s a way to facilitate healing and habit change around food, exercise, and your relationship with your body. I’ve compiled a resource that explains what works, and have included strategies that you can begin to use today. Learn how the hypnotic approach is better than diets, pills, and surgery, by calling 309-509-1036 for a free consult, or click the link below. 

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. We all have a body!  Give me a call at 309-509-1036. Or click below to learn more about hypnosis for somatic relief.


I work with kids and teens from 5 and up to provide gentle resolution for fears and anxiety, bedwetting, nail biting, and other emotional and behavioral concerns. Additionally, I train parents and caretakers in methods to work with at home. My approach with kids is very interactive and playful. I join your kids in their world, and I do not expect them to sit still.  Call with  questions or for a free consult 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.
