What is Trance?
You probably experience trance several times a day on your own. Do you ever become entranced by a good movie, or watching a TV show? Perhaps you have a favorite hobby or some activity that entrances you. All these experiences take your attention away from the every day world and you become focused on just one thing. Usually it makes time seem to go by very quickly.
What is Hypnosis?
Hypnosis is just the process I use to guide you into trance. I practice Ericksonian Hypnosis, named after the late Milton Erickson, M.D. Using his methods, I can guide virtually anyone into trance.
Why would I want to go into trance?
There are two parts to your mind. You have the conscious part, the part you are aware of all the time. And you have the subconscious part that you are not usually aware of. The subconscious part is running the show when it comes to unwanted habits like smoking, over-eating, phobias, or pain. Going into a trance makes it very easy to talk with the subconscious mind and suggest to him or her that she change the unwanted behavior.
Is it safe?
It is completely safe and natural. In fact, hypnosis and trance were approved by the American Medical Association in 1958. Clients typically report that when the trance is over, their experience is as if they've come back from a pleasant dream.
Will I be under your control while in trance?
Absolutely not. If I could control people while in a trance, I would go around to all the banks and hypnotize the bank tellers to hand over the money. Obviously, that is impossible and does not happen. You are always in control.
Where is your office?
My office is conveniently located in Novato, a short distance from 101 in the Bell Marin Keys area.
What are your hours?
I typically see people anytime between 1:00pm and 8:00pm, Monday through Thursday. There are sometimes exceptions, of course. So call for an appointment.

    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.
