Marian Spurgeon is a top-rated hypnosis provider in the Davenport, Iowa region. She is the owner of Quad Cities Hypnosis, where she offers an interactive, client-centric style of hypnosis to help her clients overcome physical and emotional health issues such as losing weight, stop smoking, and reduce stress, anxiety, grief, fears, and phobias. Marian is an ICBCH Certified Hypnosis Instructor and received her certified hypnosis license from the National Guild of Hypnotists.

Marian and Stephanie join me today to discuss the value of learning intuitive hypnosis. We discuss how they share their own unique styles of hypnosis and how we can help new hypnotists become better prepared to start serving clients. We discuss why they believe scripts are beneficial for new hypnotists, but should be viewed as ‘training wheels’ into the industry. We discuss what inspired Stephanie and Marian to teach hypnosis as a collaborative team and how they use their unique perspective on hypnosis to inspire confidence in their students. We also discuss Stephanie’s Profound Somnambulism Protocol (PSP) and how working in an interactive style enhances the client’s hypnotic experience.
