Occasionally on this blog I shall delve back into history and take another look at something interesting I was involved with in years gone by. I’ve chosen the first one pretty much at random, although I wanted to start with something moving and I think you’ll find this is. It’s an interview I did with Jade Goody for Now Magazine just a few months before she discovered she had what would turn out to be terminal cervical cancer. I think its worth re-reading not just because Jade became such a prominent – indeed archetypal – early 21st Century celebrity but because it illustrates something that is very true in all of the therapy work I do today – that what happens to us as children can have a huge impact on our happiness as adults. Here’s the full interview that I wrote up. RIP Jade.
While recently undertaking some thinking for an advertising agency I started to develop an idea about an important factor in human motivations. Traditional advertising planning concerns itself, rightly, with the rational and the emotional. But is there a third factor at play? I think there is and that initial concept, outlined in this short presentation has led me to start researching and writing my third book, provisionally entitled “Primal Intelligence – The Secret Ancient Keys to Who You Are and What You Do”.
