Our habits are like the nuns' garb from which their name derives—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 to see clinical hypnotherapist Elizabeth Cessna, MS. For $45, you get an introductory session at Cessna's Everyday Hypnotherapy, a $100 value.
Cessna, a sought-after lecturer and a member of the National Board for Certified Clinical Hypnotherapists, practices Ericksonian hypnotherapy, an informal conversational approach that eschews dangled pocket watches and pin-wheeling spirals. Hers is a gentle, permissive treatment that reconnects patients with their unconscious selves, healing schisms caused by modern maladies such as turducken-guilt and Jersey Shore. Hypnotherapy can help patients overcome unhealthy habits such as smoking, intimacy problems, stress, and yelling at the TV. Using communicative techniques that stay focused on the future instead of the past, Cessna quickly gets to the bottom of drunk-dialing and Facebook-stalking habits, allowing her patients to blossom and regain control over their destinies.
Patients typically partake in at least three sessions, each of which can last anywhere from 45 to 90 minutes. Patients remain in complete control and awareness during the experience. Every session is a journey of psychiatric 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.
- Cessna uses Ericksonian hypnosis, a self-motivated technique that guides patients through a process that identifies and redirects unwanted memories and actions with reinforced positive-oriented thoughts. – Amanda King, North Campus Voice
- Potato chips used to call my name anytime I felt stress, I could down a huge bag and would consider opening a second one...and sometimes I did. After clinical hypnotherapy, the overwhelming desire for those chips has been neutralized and now they are just like any other food in my kitchen. – Heather B., Testimonial
- I was in an accident and experienced residual pain. After receiving clinical hypnotherapy, my pain has been significantly reduced and Elizabeth also taught me self-hypnosis so that I can continue to manage my pain on my own. – Richard C., Testimonial
