Fear

Fear is an ugly 4 letter word that causes so much upset in our lives. There are different kinds of fear.

fear of public speakingProbably the number one fear is fear of public speaking. If you are a business professional, and need to be able to stand up in front of people and talk, whether it be at a networking event or giving a talk for some colleagues at work, this fear can hold you back in your career. It can keep you from the professional recognition that you deserve.

Performance anxiety is related to fear of public speaking. If you sing or play an instrument and are afraid of performing in front of people, I can relate. I am an amateur pianist and organist and use to sweat bullets at the mere thought of playing for someone, let alone a group. No more.

social anxietySocial anxiety is another form of fear. It is felt if you are uncomfortable talking with people you don’t know that well, or you are not comfortable in small groups. Basically, it is fear of being social. This fear can keep you from having the happiness and contact with others that you desire.

Phobias are another kind of fear. Examples of phobias are fear of snakes, creepy crawly things, fear of flying, fear of heights, of elevators, fear of just about anything. This kind of fear can ruin your life.

getting over fearI can help you get over fear with the aid of hypnosis. Sometimes it is just a matter of going into trance and imagine feeling comfortable and confident in the situation that produces the fear in you. Sometimes the work can involve age regression, going back to the time when the fear first started. With some clients, I give them tasks to do between sessions. The tasks are designed to have the client get over their fear in small baby steps.

I treat each client individually and create a program of hypnosis sessions custom designed for each individual client. I do not use a cookie cutter approach.

living happy lifeThere is a way out of fear into a life of happiness and career advancement. Please do give me a call at 415-261-8848. I offer a free strategy session to you to see if hypnosis is the right thing for your situation and you get to ask me anything at all. No high pressure sales tactics. Just solid information that you can use to decide if hypnosis is right for you.

And this from someone who in his teen and college years had such low self esteem I feared talking to anyone and kept my head and eyes down to the pavement. I would not ask for directions or interact with people in any way.

Again, please reach out and see if hypnosis is right for you. 415-261-8848.

    I’m a person whose living depends on the ability to make cold calls. I’ve always avoided this dreaded task and consequently my income has sufferred as a result. I saw Greg Turner for only three hypnosis sessions. Since that time, my attitude towards cold calling has completely changed. I now enjoy making the calls, and as a result, my income is taking off. If you think hypnosis can help you, definitely give Greg a call

    Thanks Greg for helping me with my smoking. As you know I was not sure hypnosis would work for me. In fact, I was pretty uptight about it at first. Your presence and voice are so calm and soothing that after the first session I was able to relax and let you guide me into communicating with those parts of my inner mind responsible for my smoking. Thanks for helping me deal with my deamons because now I no longer have the desire to smoke.

    Thanks Greg for helping me to quit smoking. I couldn’t have done it without the great insights into myself that you helped me see, and the hypnotic suggestions you gave me seem to still be working great!

    Greg Turner, while shaking my hand and talking to me in a strange way, quickly and easily put me into a deep trance. I was really impressed, he has the most compelling hypnotic eyes and is an extremely powerful hypnotherapist and yet has a very safe and reassuring presence. I found Greg always to be completely professional and he has a tremendous knowledge and passion for hypnotherapy and how it can help people. I would recommend him to anyone who wants to explore any health issue or personal issue within their life.

    I attended a hypnosis session with Greg Turner. I wanted some extra help to keep one of my resolutions. I was concerned about having someone hypnotize me, but Greg answered all my questions and had me relaxed in a minute or two. Since our session, I’ve been moving ahead with my goal and feel great about it. I would highly recommend Greg to anyone wanting help to kick a habit or create a new one.

    Greg Turner is a wise person as well as being a great hypnotherapist.He knows how to guide you to your own insights and connections. He lets you set the pace of each session and understands the wisdom of silence. He assisted me with a jump I wanted to make in my life and I am on to my next phase. I highly recommend Greg as a hypnotherapist.

    Greg Turner has been a blessing in helping me to cope with stress and the compulsions that stress generates. Even though my permanent home is a far thousand and more miles from Greg the CD Greg gave me has been a long-distance reinforcement for me. I shall be forever grateful.

    I came to Greg’s office and he explained the whole process very clearly and was genuinely interested in what I had to say. He also posed some interesting questions. I felt like I was finally confronting some real issues. I experienced trance, and came to find myself having thoughts and taking actions that were conducive to what I had laid out as my specific goals. My time with Greg has definitely brought about some changes in me and this is reflecting positively in both my personal and professional life.

    Greg, I just got a raise and in part its due to my hypnosis sessions with you. As you know I dreaded the thought of having to get up and do presentations for senior members of my firm. My sessions with you taught me how to focus on the important parts of my speech and to forget about what they might be thinking of me. I now actually enjoy speaking in front of others and apparently my boss enjoys my presentations, as well. My raise more than covers the money I spent with you. Thanks

    Thanks Greg for helping with my eating habits. I am now eating much more slowly. Not only that, I now take home leftovers from a restaurant,and do not sit at my desk thinking about the chocolate that is around the office. You are a great hypnotist and I love my new life free of the control of food!!

    All my life I had been plagued with a phobia: I would gag nearly every time I tried to swallow a pill. Over the course of 3 sessions, I grew to trust Greg. Today I am calm and unafraid of taking pills.
