Paul’s Journey in Confronting OSA
Although Paul had severe obstructive sleep apnoea for many decades he only consciously became aware of problems with his sleep just over 10 years ago. For many years he endured a lesser quality of life as he struggled with poor sleep and its consequences.
Paul regularly suffered headaches, had low energy levels, suffered with anxiety and depression and often found it difficult to concentrate. He was also overweight. He appreciated that his eating and exercise habits could have been better.
But with hindsight he learned that the underlying problem was related to his breathing. Once the severity of Paul’s obstructive sleep apnoea was diagnosed following a sleep study he began his journey of discovery. That journey led him to undergo both conventional and unconventional medical treatments.
The health benefits Paul obtained from changing his breathing were (and still are) nothing short of amazing. He regained energy, concentration and a sense of calm. He lost almost 10 kg in weight and overcame lethargy, anxiety and depression. He no longer suffered headaches.
In 2014 Paul wrote Breathless Sleep…no more. A compelling case study.
Following publication of his book Paul was made a Fellow of Buteyko Professionals International. In 2016 Paul trained with Patrick McKeown and was certified as a Practitioner in the Buteyko Breathing Method by Buteyko Clinic International.
In 2017 he undertook further training with Paul O’Connell in the Buteyko Institute Method of Breathing and was certified as an Associate Practitioner by the Buteyko Institute of Breathing & Health.
In 2018 he published a 2nd edition of his book.
In 2019 he trained with Liana Taylor, Clinical Psychologist and founder of the Australian Institute of Applied Mindfulness and was certified as a Practitioner of Applied Mindfulness.
In 2020 he produced an Audiobook version of his book, narrated by Steve McNamara.
Paul teaches a Mindful Buteyko Breathing Course and also offers Consultations over 2 or 3 sessions.
