The Lightning Process®

Lightning Process LogoThe Lightning Process® (LP) was designed and developed by Phil Parker who is an internationally renowned therapist, lecturer, and innovator in the field of personal development. His training in Osteopathy, Coaching, Hypnotherapy and Neuro Linguistic Programming set the stage for his interest and insights into the process of translating current knowledge of psychoneuroimmunologyneuroplasticity and applied sports psychology into a practical training program for individual clients. The training program is designed to help individuals afflicted with a spectrum of disorders ‘re-program’ their sub-conscious responses to a variety of stimuli that have been know to disable their lives.

The program helps you take stock of the resources you already have and gives you tools to access them to influence the direction of your life, your health, happiness and wellbeing. The Lightning Process is built on the belief that these aspects interact and need to be seen as a whole.

The LP is best taught in a small group setting with an integrated model of lectures, group process, practical instruction and supervised individual practice.  Mr. Parker, based in London, England soon realized that he could not meet the exploding demand for his program and therefore started a training institute (the Phil Parker Training Institute®) to allow a wider availability of the Lightning Process.

Over the last several years the program has trained more than two hundred practitioners and they include physicians, psychologists, physical therapists and nurses as well as other professionals.  The program and instructional material is constantly being perfected based on evolving science and experience gained in the field.  The training program assures thorough professional training of the instructors as coaches, and licensure is based on written and practical exams to assure the quality and high ethical standards of the instructors.  The license to practice is renewed each year and requires a commitment to continuing education and professional development  at the Phil Parker Training Institute in London.

There are currently practitioners offering courses in many parts of the world, and now also the US.  You may see the current listing here:

Most LP clients report amazing changes over the 3 days of the seminar. Some people have made complete and lasting recoveries within the 3 days, others take longer. As with any training program it is important to understand that long term recovery depends on a commitment to use the tools you have learnt whenever you need to.  As Change Professionals we know how difficult this can be, and follow-up and support is therefore an integral part of the LP Training (and included in the fee).

Well aware of approaches that makes clients overly dependent on follow-up sessions, dietary supplements, and a variety of other costly products, we don’t think that this kind of dependance is in our clients best interest.  As licensed LP practitioners, we are ethically committed to provide the needed support, but also to make ourselves redundant as soon as you feel ready. We want you to be the most powerful that you can be in your own life!  Our goal is to give you the tools to be able to live a life you love.

The LP has gotten a lot of media attention for its outstanding results with conditions like ME/Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, Post Viral Syndrome, Fibromyalgia etc, but the program is equally successful with a wide range of other conditions, and has applications to many other areas than health.

The program includes the following components:

  1. Pre-program screening and coaching (generally by e-mail/mail and phone/Skype)
  2. Three intensive sessions of 4-5 hours (consecutive days)
  3. Support material including a CD to use for review and inspiration
  4. Five follow-up sessions (by phone, Skype or Face-Time in addition to e-mail)
