Émile Coué (1857-1926) fue un psicólogo y farmacólogo francés.Introdujo un método conocido como la psicoterapia, que es una técnica de curación y auto-mejoría que se basa en la autosugestión de la hipnosis. Se le conoce como el padre del condicionamiento aplicado.Coué aprendió acerca de la hipnosis por Ambroise-Auguste Liébault, el fundador de la Escuela de Nancy. En 1913 Coué fundó la Sociedad de Psicología Aplicada de Lorraine. Introdujo un nuevo método, el auto-comienzo de la autosugestión consciente, del cual escribió un libro. Modificó la teoría de Abbé Faria proponiendo que para que la autosugestión fluyera de la mente, uno tenía que alimentarla primero: repitiendo palabras o imágenes como autosugestión para la mente subconsciente, uno puede condicionar su mente. Después, la mente condicionada, es capaz de producir un comando autogenerado cuando la situación lo requiera.Su muy conocido mantra, “Día tras día, en todos los aspectos, me va mejor y mejor” es conocido como Couéismo, o el método de Coué, y depende en gran parte de la repetición de la fórmula.
