How I Helped Someone to Remember to Remember

I was in my local subway today grabbing a sandwich and almost every time I go in there I chat to this 70 year old chap and each day the conversation is quite similar.

Cliff Richard circa 1960“I saw Cliff Richard and the Shadows at the Usher Hall in the early 60s. The Shadows opened the show with the boom boom sound of Apache” 

"Wow that song was Number 1 for 5 weeks back then. That must have been amazing seeing them live back in the day.” 

“Yeah and then Cliff came on with all the moves like Elvis and the girls were screaming at the top of their lungs and tearing their hair out, they literally came out of the show with big patches out of their heads, it was pandemonium, it’s amazing no one fell off the balcony as they all surged forward” 

Each day I'd get a little more detail of the best day of his life, I almost feel like I was there and the conversation always ended the same way -

“I have the Shadows Greatest Hits on CD, I’ll bring it in for you!”. 

“That would be great, thanks” 

The next day I either get the same story again as if it was the first time or when he sees me he says “Damn I forgot that CD, I’ll put it in my pocket for tomorrow”. 

After 8 weeks of this I realised the CD was not going to be appearing any time soon but I kept playing the game all the same. 

One day the manager in subway has a word with me, it seems my friend has Alzheimers, his family were checking that he wasn’t being any bother in the store and we said “No no, we love that guy. He’s no hassle. He has his wee routine and that’s fine.” 

Shadows CDAfter hearing about the Shadows for 8 weeks in a row I went from being not that interested in hearing the Shadows on CD to being really quite keen to hear all their hits because of the passion he shared about them day after day and the next time the conversation came up I interjected. 

“I know this might sound weird but I’m a hypnotherapist for a living, do you mind if I do something to help you to remember to bring the CD?” and he said “Yeah OK, just don’t turn me into anything!” and I just did about 60 seconds of hypnotherapy about remembering the CD and keeping it in his jacket every day until he sees me next. 

Anyway, I go in for my lunch today and he smiles broadly and reaches into his jacket, quite pleased with himself and hands over the CD, ha ha, brilliant! It worked.

I Love My Life. 

If you think you might benefit from some hypnotherapy get in touch, that’s what can be done in a minute, imagine what can be done in 90.
