One to One Training
As a teenager, when my teachers zoned out and read verbatim from textbooks I practised breath-hold exercises. I had pretty bad anxiety and asthma at the time and was using breathwork not only as a way of changing my breathing but also as a way of grounding myself in the moment.
Being Patrick’s brother, I was fortunate to know that whatever the situation, when you are with your breath there are no past or future tenses. Your default unhelpful imaginings have little importance and sway, with frequent practise you follow them less and then not at all.
It took time and effort but my symptoms subsided. I wasn’t feeding them anymore. Now as a man in his forties I can safely say that I will never experience what I used to all those years ago.
Your breath is plastic retrain it, get it to where you want it to be, but also learn to use it as a tool when you need it. It will always be there for you.

Cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) is considered to be the gold standard treatment in mental health improvement. It posits that outside of real threats or loss it is repetitive negative thoughts that can contribute to anxiety, depression, irritability and other distressing emotions. CBT seeks to address this unhelpful thinking by analysing and changing thought patterns.
