Bad habits are like children—awkward, hard to get rid of, and a deal-breaker on blind dates. Today's Groupon helps you shake your bad habits with an appointment at one of two A New Day Hypnosis locations. For $89, you get a two-hour introductory hypnotherapy session, a $197 value. Sessions are by appointment only, just like at the dusty old store with all the high-fiving skeletons in the window.
Partners in love and lasertag, certified hypnotherapists and neuro-linguistic programming practitioners Laura Ryan-Day and Simon Day practice an informal, conversational discipline that eschews dangled pocket watches and pin-wheeling spirals. Laura Ryan-Day is available at A New Day's central Austin location, while Simon Day works their south Austin abode.
A New Day's hypnotherapy is a gentle, permissive treatment that reconnects patients with their unconscious selves. Hypnotherapy can help patients overcome unhealthy habits such as smoking, intimacy problems, stress, fear, and reading and encourages a healthy lifestyle, better study skills, and sound sleep. Using communicative techniques that stay focused on the future instead of the past, A New Day quickly gets to the bottom of drunk-dialing and Facebook-stalking habits, allowing its patients to blossom and regain control over their destinies.
After discussing challenges and life concerns, patients take part in a hypnosis session while remaining fully aware and in complete control. At the end of their time, subjects receive a recording of their session to take home for reinforcement. Every session is a journey of psychological adventure, overturning brain rocks and peering into mind caves to reveal a magical world within. Get this Groupon for yourself to gain a formal introduction to your subconscious, or buy one for friends to passive-aggressively encourage them to shake their own bad habits.
The Wall Street Journal interviewed A New Day Hypnosis's Laura Ryan-Day in an article about financial angst, the Austinist interviewed her too, and the Austin Hypnosis Examiner examined the top three reasons to see a hypnotist in Austin:
- After Gary Manouelian was laid off last year as a customer-service representative, he was anxious about his ability to pay off his mortgage and credit-card debt. So he sought help through hypnosis. Thirty sessions and $1,500 later, Mr. Manouelian says he has since landed a government job and is working to pay off his debts. For this he thanks his hypnotist, Laura Ryan-Day in Austin, Texas. "It's definitely made me change my thinking," says Mr. Manouelian says, of Pflugerville, Texas. "I'm much more confident and less stressed." – Mary Pilon, Wall Street Journal
Check out testimonials from its website:
- I would recommend A New Day Hypnosis to anyone who wants to overcome a fixation with food because it's been extremely successful for me. This is a total inside and out makeover and because this process has been about my emotions and not just my body, I know that it is forever. – Meagan
- I would recommend A New Day Hypnosis because all of my other attempts at quitting smoking have been an anger nightmare, but this has been a really enjoyable experience. Laura is easy to talk to and very approachable, but she's not willing to let you off the hook. – Gail
A New Day Hypnosis
Laura Ryan—MFT-A and certified hypnotherapist with more than a decade of experience—helps her clients transform bad habits into beneficial behaviors by granting them access to their subconscious mind. Her sessions use elements of meditation and guided imagery to lull patients into deep states of relaxation that they experience while remaining awake and aware. This state allows them to focus on aspects of their lives that they want to modify, eventually overcoming the subconscious blockers that have prevented them from making these changes. Laura can help people conquer the psychological addiction of smoking, reduce their daily stress, or cease a variety of other unwanted behaviors, such as biting their nails or paying for groceries with exact change.
