Paul was diagnosed with PTSD following 3 tours of Iraq carrying out Bomb Disposal duties during a 23 year military career. Afraid to seek to help, he self-medicated with alcohol to deal with his daily terrors.

With diagnosis came therapy, medication and strength to overcome his mental health injury. Sport became the focus needed to aid his recovery and inspire others to overcome their own difficulties. Now Paul delivers a gritty and motivational speech ‘From Basra to Sydney’ and proudly coaches Shropshire’s first Sitting Volleyball team – Telford Eagles.
