Breathing Techniques for COPD sufferers

The Brice Method is a pulmonary rehabilitation programme of breathing techniques and breathing exercises, designed to help people with COPD improve their breathing, their movement and their lifestyle.

The Brice Method is the culmination of 9 years of delivery of Pulmonary Rehabilitation for the NHS. Working with nearly 2000 patients over this period, the programme has evolved into an innovative, simple to follow, step by step approach to coping with COPD. Paul has written the Brice Method into a book called, ‘COPD innovative breathing techniques’ and this is now available at all the major online bookshops.

‘Feedback from the last 260 patients show that within the first session alone patients have managed to improve their breathing quality by 64%. Using a visual analogue scale, patients report a pre-session score of 4.8/10 and a post session score of 7.9/10, a change most find simply extraordinary.’

The Method is a bespoke programme that is taught over an 8 week period with weekly 50 minute sessions, and you will be given personalised exercises to help you master your new breathing techniques. You will also be given a kit of training aids and gym equipment, which will help you get the most from the programme.

The Brice Method is designed to be delivered a on a one to one basis, at Paul’s clinic in Great Yarmouth.

The cost of the Brice Method course is £450.00 per person.

If you live outside of the East Anglia area, Paul may be able to come to you. In this instance the Method can be taught over a 2 day weekend, and you will be supported with a further 7 weekly phone or facetime consultations as follow up. This will incur additional costs to cover travel and travel time, but will help those who find travelling to East Anglia challenging.

Price list

Brice Method COPD breathing course.

This is a complete package for the one to one delivery of the Brice Method COPD programme. This includes 8 individual activity sessions, along with progressive homework plans, an exercise kit designed to help your needs plus a copy of Paul’s new book, ‘COPD innovative breathing techniques.’

Cost £450

Block booking of 5 sessions

I work in block bookings of 5 sessions at a time. I do this because my clients find they need time to understand absorb and digest the very personalised exercises that I recommend. Usually, poor posture, work related imbalances, or the domino effect of poor health has taken years if not decades to occur. Clients realise they won’t fix themselves in one or two sessions.

My methods generally require you to commit to take on some homework exercises or gym focused activity to learn new movement patterns. You can spread the sessions over a many weeks as you like, and I will advise what I feel is appropriate for you..

Cost £180 

(BWell members and referrals from existing clients get a preferential rates of £150 for 5 session block bookings)

Individual personal training sessions

I offer individual rehabilitation or personal training sessions which last approximately 55 minutes. These sessions are for those who want a one off programme of exercises which can either be written and drawn out ( I am always complimented on my anatomically correct stickmen) or with videos of the exercises emailed directly to you. I find that I can not use video libraries as I tweek and personalise every exercise to each client. No two bodies are the same.

Cost £45

(BWell members and referrals from existing members get a preferential rate, paying only £35)


Paul has always been extremely helpful and knowledgeable.  Following a severe bout of sciatica, and subsequent MRI scan, Paul put together a series of special exercises to suit the conditions shown by the scan.  These have proved to be of great assistance in keeping me almost pain free and moving.  I have been able to almost cut out all pain relief medication, only taking this when things get extreme.  In between, when I am in obvious difficulty Paul will always find a way to assist.  My condition cannot be cured, but the help I receive from Paul is reassuring.
