A message from Bob Paxman CEO Talking2Minds:

“I would personally like to thank all those that have supported us and for those that have trained with us to help others. Paradigm Training Solutions is now ready to forge ahead and help many more that are suffering and to help them get their lives back”.

During the Falklands conflict 30 years ago, some 12,000 troops deployed as part of the operation to regain control of the Islands. 255 British troops were killed during the conflict and since then well over 300 veterans have committed suicide since the conflict ended with many having displayed the symptoms of Severe Stress Related Conditions (SSRC) including Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)

The First Gulf War resulting in the death of 24 service personnel has now seen over 120 suicides since the conflict ended, again with many showing symptoms of SSRC and PTSD prior to suicide.

We were at war in Afghanistan and Iraq for over 10 years and have been involved in scores of other conflicts over the decades. Thousands of service men and women have been deployed and this modern warfare has resulted in a significant increase in SSRC and PTSD. Observers report a 54% per annum increase in the number of service personnel presenting with symptoms asking the medical services and charities for help.

Talking2Minds has a proven track record of working with serving personnel and Veterans who are experiencing the symptoms of SSRC and PTSD. The National Health Service, counselling and other processes often take years to provide some relief for sufferers and often serious medication is involved. However, we use the unique Paradigm Therapy™ and have helped over 700 people pick up the pieces and heal the mental scars. Over the last six years we have been offering the four-day process and to date have a 97% success record at fixing PTSD in sufferers – on the course – right there – right then.           Outstanding !!!



The phenomenal success experienced by T2M Practitioners is well known but what you may not know is that the training team at Paradigm Training Solutions has trained every one of the T2M Change Coaches who have ever delivered and who continue to deliver the Paradigm Change Programmes at T2M

Why we use Paradigm Therapy™:

Paradigm Therapy™ is non-invasive and drug free.

Paradigm Therapy™ works with the client at their own speed to enable them to pick up the pieces of their lives and help heal the mental scars.

The Paradigm Change Programme™ uses a holistic approach and works with the client on an individual basis to get to the root cause of the problem without revisiting the trauma as some traditional medical approaches do.



We are so grateful to Paradigm Training Solutions for the outstanding training each and every one of the Paradigm Change Coaches have received.

Our phenomenal success over six years at fixing PTSD in our clients from the Armed Services and Emergency Services is completely due to their skill and professionalism.

Below are a few of the many testimonials from those who have benefited from the Paradigm Approach.


“In Iraq I was unlucky enough to drive into a road side bomb in the centre of Basra. In the incident two colleagues lost their lives. I suffered shrapnel wounds to the back of my head and am now deaf in my left ear. I have been told by doctors I will eventually lose the sight in my left eye. 

Four months after returning to the UK my closest friend could no longer live with his “PTSD” and shot himself whilst on a training exercise in Surrey, in front of 30 men.

 I was diagnosed with PTSD in October 2010 and I was immediately taken off duties, no longer able to hold a weapon and confined to my married quarters until the army decided my fate. For the next ten months I was taking five different forms of medication, one of them being more popular than the others …. alcohol.”

After…. “I stopped my medication the days I completed my course and my daily nightmares have since disappeared, and all in all life is great!!!!! It is a miracle. Bob and his team have changed my life.” 


“I have served for currently 19 years and been all over the world within the Army. I lost my left leg below the knee from a gunshot wound sustained in Afghanistan in 2007.

My family started to mention that my mood swings and frustration were causing problems with my marriage and family and friends. I had a mental problem which the usual medical intervention could not help me with.”

After… “On finishing the first day my wife noticed that my attitude and wicked sense of humour had returned, I started to see the funny side of life and to enjoy life again. Even though I have sustained a traumatic injury life does not stop and we all must go on and live each day as if it is the last.

Talking 2 Minds has changed my life. My marriage is now back on track after coming very close to ending and the people who are close to me have all noticed how much like my former self I am now. I wish to personally thank all of the Talking 2 Minds team for their support and friendship. Live long and live life to the fullest because we only get one chance at it.”


 “Not long after I left the Army I started going off the rails. I went to plenty of doctors but they all gave me the brush off. I was then sent to a well known charity that helps people with PTSD and was diagnosed with it and some other things. My world fell apart and so began the road of 49 plus tablets a day, being told I was mental there was no cure for this PTSD  and would have to learn to live with it. I attempted suicide 5 times by cutting, hanging and overdosing.”

 After… “After five days on a Talking 2 Minds course I returned a completely new guy. T2M saved my life and marriage and achieved what six years of NHS treatments and medication completely failed to.”
