Here at TAP we are always keen to attract the very best speakers on subjects that we know will interest members and those interested in all different aspects of the human psyche. So we are keen to get to know them and ensure they enjoy their time with us and one way we do that is to take them out for a pre-talk meal.
TAP Council member Kella Fitzgerald thought it would be a great idea to ask each speaker a few short questions to find out what makes them tick, last month we tried it for the first time with Andrew Newton-Cox....... So fire away Kella!
As a TAP council member, I have the opportunity to go for dinner once a month with our guest speakers. While discussing aspects of psychotherapy over dinner is fascinating, I am also interested in finding out about the person behind the profession. With this in mind I devised a series of questions:
1. What is your favourite comfort food?
Seeded granary bread with strong cheddar or Brie. "Because it's brilliant"
2. What book has meant the most to you?
I Robot by Issac Asimov.
3. What one piece of advice has inspired you?
The Serenity Prayer
God, give me grace to accept with serenity
the things that cannot be changed,
Courage to change the things
which should be changed,
and the Wisdom to distinguish
the one from the other.
4. What music do you put on to relax?
A lot of different music and artists, but especially Bob Marley
My thanks to Andrew for his great choices, and we are so glad his talk was so well received.
