Post Hypnotic Suggestion
A woman phoned a Hypnotherapist a few days after her depressed husband had seen him.
"Excuse me phoning, but I am very worried about my husband. He can't remember anything about his session with you. What did you do to him?"
"I am sure there is nothing to worry about," replied the hypnotherapist suavely, "It is quite normal to have amnesia for the hypnotic experience. Your husband was suffering from a mild endogneous depression and so I simply repeated to him in a trance that he would be `Better and Better Every Day, Better and Better in Every Way.' It is an excellent technique. I can't see that anything can go wrong. What exactly are you worried about?"
"I see. Did you know he was a little deaf?"
"Yes, but that has nothing to do with his depression."
"But I think it may have a lot to do with the new problem. Since you saw him he has lost a fortune BETTING: every day and in every way!"
