Chief Executive Officer
Bob is the Founder of Talking 2 Minds and has spent many years studying alternative approaches to treating trauma in order to provide help for those who desperately need it. Bob spent over 20 years in hostile and high pressure environments as part of both the Royal Engineers and 22 Special Air Service.
Having spent years suffering from nightmares and flashbacks, Bob was eventually diagnosed with PTSD and began the painful journey along the traditional treatment routes trying to find help. It quickly became apparent that the existing treatment systems could not provide the level of help required and so Bob decided to explore elsewhere for assistance. Bob has been instrumental in the design of the Paradigm Programme and Therapeutic approach which is the core therapy used at Talking 2 Minds. The Paradigm Therapeutic Process ™ which are designed specifically to help those suffering from PTSD and other severe stress related conditions.
In 2008 Bob decided to dedicate his time and energy to his life’s purpose of helping those still suffering from PTSD, assisting them back to health and helping them to regain their self worth, self-identity and realise their full potential in life.
Bob is a Trainer of NLP, Hypnosis and a Master Trainer of Paradigm Therapy™.
Bob is an avid climber and enjoys the outdoor life.

Corporate Fundraising Coordinator
First and foremost I am a mother of two serving soldiers, who have both completed tours in Afghan and Iraq. I have seen the devastation and also the damage PTSD can do, not just to the servicemen/women but also to their families who are trying to help the stranger they once knew.
With over 20 years of experience within the charity sector, mainly involved with community and corporate fundraising I wanted to offer my services to a charity that is close to my heart. Talking2Minds is not only a ground breaking organisation it also offers direct practical support to all that suffer from PTSD no matter your background or circumstance.
I am now Company director at Stormy Blue Events Limited and Talking2Minds is our COTY (Charity of the year).
I have wealth of knowledge and experience with Event planning, Legalities, Fundraising both in Community and Corporate. I am here to help you raise funds so Talking2Minds can reach a wider audience of suffers.
