I’m Gary ‘Smiler’ Turner and I’m a Hypnotherapist, Personal Trainer for Fight Sports, and Performance Expert. My work is helping people be the people they want to be. With a background as being a 13x World Champion across three different sports I ‘walk the walk’ as well as ‘talk the talk’, demonstrating professional and personal congruence with my work.
I constantly study and develop applications to apply that knowledge. An experienced speaker to a variety of audiences I am well placed to deliver skills to attendees of my presentations. I work with individual clients, sports teams, both military and civilian services personnel, and businesses delivering corporate change. I’m particularly honoured to regularly work with The British Army, and elite sportspersons, including Olympians and World Champions.
