Paradigm Training Solutions are committed to developing programmes that meet the needs of our clients.

To do this we undertake external validation and comprehensive reviews of our approach. This includes statistical analysis of outcomes which is an ongoing and important part of ensuring that Paradigm Training Solutions maintains the correct level of support that all of our clients require.

Our outcomes are analysed by psychologists and statisticians that use The World Health Organisation instruments of validation to measure the client’s progress over an extended period of time.



In line with both national and international calls for the ‘development of patient-centred care´ that allows patients to have a greater say in their choice of treatment, independent research is currently being undertaken by Julie T Davies of Edge Hill University and Dennis Carlon, freelance psychologist, in order to evaluate the effectiveness of Paradigm Therapy ™ on those individuals presenting with PTSD.

The latest statistics to date clearly demonstrate a marked reduction in symptoms associated with PTSD. From a randomised sample [n=150] of clients seen by Talking2Minds™, 96.5% fitted the criteria for PTSD. Following their treatment, 99.1% demonstrated that they did not fit the criteria [PCLC].

This can be broken down as follows:

DASS – a 36-item self-reporting measure to assess for depression, anxiety and stress


% demonstrating 


 pre treatment

%   symptom-free post treatment
Depression 75.8 84.2
Anxiety 74.3 83.0
Stress 79.9 87.0


PCLC – a 17-item self-report measure that assesses the criteria of PTSD

  % pre treatment % post treatment
Intrusion 74.5 82.5
Avoidance 68.7 80.8
Hyper-arousal 71.8 79.8


Further research is on-going that will include a full, interpretive analysis after undertaking interviews with clients. An interim report is ongoing and will be followed by a full report in due course and an article is awaiting peer review with an established journal on counselling and psychotherapy.

Paradigm Training Solutions are committed to continue research and development of the programmes we offer to enable us to move forward and help more of those who are experiencing the symptoms of PTSD.

No institution or persons may use these statistics for their own purpose; they are the property of Talking2Minds and Paradigm Training Solutions. If any institution wishes to look at the full statistical report then can contact the Paradigm Training Solutions team at  stating which organisation or professional body that you officially represent.
