Oh, oh, oh.

You have six new messages.

North, it's Beth.

I heard what happened.

I'm so sorry.

This call is for Mr.

North Maxfield.

This is a courtesy call

regarding your mortgage

with us here.

Ginny, hi. It's

Joan from Willow fitness.

Hey, it's Beth.

I'm not sure if this will help,

but here's the number

of the doctor

you and Carl discussed.

Her name is

Dr. Sarah Carson, 405...

North, it's mom.

I'm here at the airport.

I wish you would

come home with us.

If you change your mind...

Does it work?



Who you're working

with and what you do with it.

I've had a lot of success

with people who are open to it.


What brought you to me?

My wife was

murdered a month ago.

The police say they'll probably

never catch whoever did it.

I woke up in the hospital.

I'm sorry to hear that.

But not her, she was gone.

She wasn't there with me.

Are you on any doctor

prescribed medications?

Not anymore.

Why hypnosis?

I remember some things,

they're just gaping holes.

Have you tried

writing this down?

No, thank you.

It's never anything but

bits and pieces anyway.

The truth is in

those bits and pieces.

These used to mean something.

Now they're just reminders

of a job I can't do anymore.

What's that like?

Everything is

jumbled in my head.

Things don't make sense anymore.

I can't remember things.


If I could just see her...

If I could just understand

how it happened...

I think I could put this

All back together.

There are many different

techniques for hypnosis.

Some are like

guided meditations,

or are conscious

of everything around you.

What I do

is deep trance hypnosis.

I lead you into your

subconscious with an intention,

and there we reconnect

the memories.

How does it sound?

If it helps me remember,

I'm game.

You may experience

a sensation of lightness,

you may feel you're floating,

out of body experience.

Is that still okay?

- Sure.

- Good.

Let's begin.

Study my hand.

Hear the calmness in my voice.

I want you to concentrate on,

and only on my index finger.

You may hear

the sounds in the room,

but none of that matters

as you focus

on the sound of my voice.

Watch... as the other

fingers fall away.


As I count down,

five, four,

three, two, one.

Don't try to find

a memory All at once.

Remember a piece,

an element...

Of your wife...

And your life together.

Find your own

internal guide and follow it.

Where would you

like to go today?



Can you hear

the sound of my voice?

It worked.

You were under

about sixteen minutes.

It only felt like moments.

It's a different world there.

People are different,

time is different.

This memory is a piece.

You build on that.

Can I come back?

Of course.

Morning, Beth.

Keep your head down,

Carl is on the warpath.

Alan, hi.

Hey, how's your wife?

I'm sorry to hear that.


Right, right,

I just wanted to check in

about what we had talked

about six months ago, I just...

No, no, no. I understand, I

hear what you're saying and...

and I don't think you need to move

this account. I really don't.

I want you to feel like

you can completely

trust me again.

Ah, I'm better, I really

am, I mean, I'm back.

That's why I wanted

to call you today.

So, here is what's going on.

Yes, I did have a head injury,

I got your "thank you" card,

I really appreciate it.

I'm back two hundred percent.

Trust me, if You'll just

have a little faith in me,

just have a little...

An ounce of faith in me,

which I know you find hard.

I get it, I get that
