I am the psychotherapist. Please, describe your problems. Each time you are finished talking, type RET twice.

Hello.

How do you do? What brings you to see me?

My friend says the sky is plaid.

Why do you say your friend says the sky is plaid?

That's what he said.

Is it because of your plans that you say that's what he said?

What plans?

Maybe your life have something to do with this.

How?

Can you elaborate on that?

Elaborate on what?

What makes you believe elaborate on what?

Huh?

I would appreciate it if you would continue.

Continue what?

Is it because of the people you hang around with that you say continue what?

No.

Why not?

You don't make any sense.

Is it because of problems at school that you are going through all this?

I'm not in school right now.

Tell me about your school.

I'm not in school right now.

Does it bother you that your grades could improve?

I'm not in school right now.

Are you afraid of school?

No.

Are you annoyed that I ask that?

No.

Why not?

I am not annoyed that you asked that.

Is it because I asked that that you came to me?

How could that be wht I came to you? You asked me AFTER I came to you.

Are you sure that I asked you after youcame to me?

Yes!

I see... Well, do you really think this is so?

Yes.

Yes, hmmm... so, what makes you think this is so?

How could you ask me anything before I came to you?

Did you ever regret could I ask you anything before you came to me?

What?

Go on, don't be afraid.

I don't understand the question.

Earlier you said I asked that?

Is that a question?

I need a little more detail please.

You used a question mark at the end of a declarative statement. I don't know how to respond to that.

You're being a bit brief, perhaps you could go into detail.

I can't.

How do you reconcile any hobbies you have?

What do hobbies have to do with anything? And why do hobbies need reconciling?

When did you first know that do hobbies need reconciling?

I don't know that hobbies need reconciling?

Is it because of your sex life that you say you do not know that hobbies need reconciling?

No.

Why not?

I'm leaving. Goodbye.

My secretary will send you a bill.
