"You don't consider yourself a therapist, but you are a therapist".

"Well, not really".

"Well, let's pretend... that you're a therapist who works with people. The most important thing... when you're pretending this... is to understand... that you are
really not... You are just pretending... And if you pretend really well, the people that you work with will pretend to make changes. And they will forget that they are pretending... for the rest of their lives. But don't you be fooled by it."

Milton Erickson, quoted in Frogs Into Princes by Richard Bandler and John Grinder.
