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.

I hold sessions in my office in Davenport, IA, and remotely via Zoom.  To schedule a call to see if we are a good fit to work together, click here.

I will guide you to recognize, access, and utilize the full power of your inner resources and help you get out of your own way.

I offer smoking cessation, anxiety relief, release of fears and phobias, weight loss, and general behavior change. I also help people reduce or eliminate symptoms of IBS, fibromyalgia, Crohn’s, and more.  (Symptoms like brain fog, sleep disturbance, migraines, gut motility, pain, and even immune function are all responsive to hypnosis!)  The body and mind are not separate from each other, and you will be amazed what you can do when you know how to do it.

Many people are curious about the number of sessions to resolve any given issue, and while the answer is “it varies,” I can say that hypnosis is a different modality (and serves a different role) than psychotherapy, and in comparison, brief. Things like phobias and allergies and smoking cessation are often resolved in one session, and things like IBS and weight loss require sustained attention over time whether you decide to use self-hypnosis or buy a package of sessions. Still, in such cases, it is still a great value for the result as compared to other options.

I just wanted to say thanks for our sessions a while back. I feel like since then I'm way more capable of handling stressful situations.


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.


I recommend Marian to everyone I believe is ready to do some searching within themself. Someone like me with PTSD, high daily anxiety and depression I was skeptical it would help. I was nervous to go the 1st time. She made me feel safe and comfortable. I was able to access feelings I had suppressed without the emotional reaction. I felt the weight lift. No it's not a magic bullet. I still have anxiety, I still struggle but I have a new hunger for life. A drive to overcome and a calmness I can access at any time. She's a gem and has helped me tremendously.
