Fascinating project in the pipeline. Unfortunately I'm not right for it - in fact I'm probably exactly what it DOESN'T need - I'm the cause of jealousy! :)
Anyway, I'm not sure if any of my readers would be interested in either taking part, or know someone who would be happy talking about their extreme jealousy, and what they are doing about it.
The details are below:-
We are working on a project for Channel 4 about morbid jealousy and the effect it has on couples. We would like to speak to people in the UK involved in relationships that are blighted by this condition, which is sometimes called the Othello Syndrome. Perhaps this is triggered by an affair and the couple are trying to rebuild trust - but finding it hard - or a mental illness; paranoia, insecurity, psychosis. We are looking for people who're constantly checking mobile phones, emails and social media for clues of infidelity or another 'issue'. Perhaps people use lie detectors or other technology in a desperate bid to restore trust. They recognise this is a problem and want to do something about it, to move forward.
We would like to find out the effect this is having on relationships and would like to talk to both partners to find out how each is affected by the jealousy.
The company making the film is the highly respected factual programme maker Screenhouse, based in Leeds. We make high quality, sensitive, non-sensational films. For further information and examples of work please go to www.screenhouse.co.uk
I am keen to reach out to as many people as possible to her their experiences of this and wonder if you can help in anyway. Do you know anyone who might be prepared to speak to us? Please get in touch for a no obligation, confidential chat.
Feel free to comment (privately) or contact me, and I will of course pass on your details to the company involved. Your details, comments or stories will be treated in the strictest confidence.
