This is an impossible love story…

Cooper came home unexpectedly early that day. The day her world collapsed. The day she heard things she shouldn’t have. Saw things she shouldn’t have.

Now Cooper is running away. Driving recklessly. Blindly. A broken heart spiralling out of control after witnessing an earth-shattering scene.

Then Cooper discovers the website. Speaks to the doctors. Can they help her? Can they give her the treatment she desperately wants? Yes they can. They can do something mind-blowing.

They can surgically erase her love for her husband Jethro.

Only what appears to be the perfect solution sets off a devastating chain of events not only for Jethro and herself. But one also involving their teenage son Daniel in ways she can’t imagine.

A life-shattering moment. A rash decision. An easy solution. This isn’t just a love story. Not when a heart isn’t just broken, it is irreversibly silenced.

This is an impossible love story.

*Amazingly, this novel was inspired by the latest in genuine, cutting-edge medical technology.

Hello and welcome to another episode of the Sue Baxter Podcast Show with your host, Sue Baxter. We look at controversial issues in the news and ask how did this happen?

Tonight is a special introductory episode we’re live streaming on YouTube and iTunes, Spotify and Facebook. You can send us your tweets, comments and emails to the links in our show notes.

Now, Dr John Applegate’s book A Mindful Reminder – The Gateway Programme Trials, has only recently been published and makes for fascinating reading. Tonight’s what if? What if it were possible to surgically delete your affections permanently for someone you love? Well in fact we know it is possible from a surgery pioneered by Dr Applegate and Dr Stewart-Way just a handful of years ago. This evening our guest is one of the co-authors of the book detailing this miracle technology. Hello Dr Applegate.


Good evening Sue.


Dr John Applegate is a behavioural psychologist specialising in phobia treatment. He teamed up with Dr Klara Stewart-Way, a highly regarded neuroscientist, to pioneer a method of PTSD treatment using a revolutionary new brain surgery called – now let me get this straight – Fluorogenetic Synaptic Deletion – which they simply call The Gateway Programme. Did I say that correctly?




I gather The Gateway Programme is a kind of brain surgery. Tell us about it.


Thank you Sue. Yes, The Gateway Programme is an advanced form of optogenetics we call Flurogenetics as you mentioned in your introduction. Before you ask what optogenetics is, I’ll admit it sounds like something to do with the eyes doesn’t it? It is in fact the science of controlling the brain’s internal processes using light in fibre-optic cables. However, Dr Stewart-Way pioneered an advanced method without fibre-optic cables.


By all accounts it seems the results have been nothing short of miraculous.


We’re happy to say Gateway House has treated military personnel and police traumatised in active duty, treated postnatal depression, treated victims of crime and victims of disaster, all with successful outcomes.


And from what I gather, your patients are sufferers who have visited psychiatrists and counsellors for, in some cases, years. Your programme offers to cure them in a single treatment.


Actually Sue the programme works over a course of a few preparatory treatments but yes the final treatment takes just under five minutes.


Tell us what led to your – and Dr Stewart-Way’s – incredible discovery of The Gateway Programme.


Well, before we set up Gateway House, Dr Stewart-Way had been treating soldiers with Flurogenetics. I was working in an adjacent field treating patients suffering extreme phobia. At the time we were unaware of each others’ work. It was a fluke encounter which put us in touch with each other and, as a result, The Gateway Programme was born.


There is one case which made The Gateway Programme famous isn’t there? Her name is Cooper Hall and she was the wife of recording artist and performer Jethro T. Hall.


Cooper Hall came to us seeking help in dealing with something that is sadly the bane of many relationships – infidelity. She approached us with an intriguing question – whether it was possible for us to use The Gateway Programme, which up till then had been used purely to treat PTSD – to undo her affections for her husband. She was going through a traumatic emotional breakdown and suffering from severe panic attacks at the time. We’d never considered using The Gateway Programme for that purpose so Dr Stewart-Way and I had long talks not only with each other, but also with various professionals and independent members of the ethics committee about treating her. As you know, Cooper Hall became the first beneficiary of The Gateway Programme specifically for that purpose several years ago.


Jethro T. Hall first came to fame from a somewhat ironic song Looks Like Love after being a struggling singer for years. It was because of his fame Gateway House hit the headlines.


We were well-established within the mental health fraternity but yes we attracted mainstream attention after Cooper Hall’s involvement.


In fact it’s when Jethro T. Hall first made public statements how The Gateway Programme destroyed their marriage your practice became the centre of a media storm.


Mr Hall has been outspoken about his views against us using a PTSD treatment to treat emotional relationship issues. Cooper Hall however stands in defence of our work at Gateway House and continues to support what we do.


Today Cooper and Jethro remain separated. They’re living in different countries I’m told.


Cooper lives in Ireland now, yes.


I note on your website The Gateway Programme came about in part because of spiders. Is that correct?


Well yes Sue, you’re talking about a patient I treated for arachnophobia when I ran the phobia clinic.


The spider case is itself interesting isn’t it? I mean, who’d have thought a spider could lead to a treatment that deletes love.

I'm a British author who loves page-turners. It doesn't have to be a thriller. It can be anything, I just want to feel that desperate urge to turn the page. And if it grabs me on the first page...or the first paragraph...or the first sentence...Well! All the better.

I worked in the television industry for many years. However, though I’ve worked with words all my life, I’ve only recently decided to do something with it. I have a love of radio dramas and audio books and my writing has been heavily influenced by both.

I live on the English coast and love sea and nature reserve walks whenever I get the opportunity (at least once a week, sometimes more). I also love to wake early, long before the rest of the world has caught up with me.
