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 is currently writing the Brice Method into a book and is due to be published in 2018.
‘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 a 5 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, that 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 £375.00 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 in one day, and you will be supported with 4 weekly phone or facetime consultations as follow up. This will incur assertional costs to cover travel and travel time, but will help those who find travel challenging.

I generally work in block bookings of 5 sessions at a time. This is because 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 as many weeks as you like, and I will advise what I feel is appropriate for you..

I offer individual rehabilitation or personal training sessions which last approximately 55 minutes.

If you have a particular goal or health objective in mind, I provide an even more extensive package, which not only gives you two, 50 minute workout sessions a week, but also gives you additional support such as a structured home workout plan and email/text support. I find this type of support is essential if you need to be active more than twice a week.
Cost £250 per month.
Commit to 3 months in advance, I will even give you a basic home gym package. This will help you do exercises at home, or on the move if you have little time to get to the gym more regularly. The exercise pack will be to the value of £50 and will be a personalised selection of equipment that Paul feels will help you best.
Cost £750 for 3 months.
I have Idiopathic Pulmonary Arterial Hypertension and a Patent Foramen Ovale and as a result of that I have to take oxygen 24/7. Paul has taught me breathing techniques that can control the stress/anxiety about breathing that comes with having a lung condition, and how to apply these techniques to exercise and other every day activities. I feel better equipped to deal with my condition.
