Who we help
We help anyone who is suffering from PTSD or another severe stress-related condition, including those with addictions. Traumas leave their mark and whether it’s in the field of combat, as part of the “blue light” services or through something encountered as a civilian, the effects can be terrifying and debilitating.
The most common mental issues faced as a result of trauma or prolonged stress are listed opposite.
If you, a loved-one or friend is suffering from any of these, please get in touch. All calls and emails are in complete confidence and all our advice is free – as is our ground-breaking Paradigm Change Programme™.
You are not alone
Sufferers can feel very alone but there is a large and increasing number of PTSD sufferers, particularly among serving and ex-armed forces and emergency services personnel.
Here at Talking2Minds we know from first-hand experience that the mental scars can be long term and difficult to deal with on your own.
All practitioners at Talking2Minds are very experienced in working with people presenting the symptoms of PTSD and other severe stress-related conditions because the majority have been there themselves.
Please contact us; we can help you, your loved-one and your family.
A member of the team will then contact you to discuss options and offer you a place on our 4 day Paradigm Change Programme™.

Referral and 24 hour support
Talking 2 Minds is not a 24 hour emergency service but would like all those in need to feel supported by signposting clients to other services that can help should anyone find themselves struggling when our phones are not manned.
Talking 2 Minds would like to stress that if you have any concerns for friends, family or for your own well-being you should immediately contact the relevant emergency service to ensure a speedy intervention and immediate help for anyone you may be concerned about.
