And so a VERY HAPPY 7 year health transformationversary to me! 🎈🥳
After 24 years of being chronically ill with ME and Fibromyalgia I am today…
7 magnificent years healthy and FULLY living my life! 😍
…and THIS is the legend responsible ⤵️ 🙌🏻
This is Dr. Phil Parker, PhD and he is the fella with the brilliant brain who designed the Lightning Process back in the 1990s.
The LP has since enabled circa 25,000 humans from all around the world (including me!) to transform whatever it was that was keeping them stuck into whatever it is they needed instead to move them forward ➜➜➜
The Lightning Process technique enables you to harness the power of your brain and your neurology (via NLP!) so that you can switch of the ‘flight or flight’ response loop that causes inflammation in the body that in turn can lead to ‘burn out’ and that inevitable diagnosis of chronic mental and physical health conditions.
Whether a chronic illness or a mental health struggle the Lightning Process has been there and sorted that! ⚡️
📸 – This super cool pic of Phil and moi was taken at the recent ANLP Conference in London where Phil gave the keynote talk on Inner Wisdom techniques for Health and Happiness. The whole weekend was immensely inspiring and 🙌🏻 to the ANLP (The Association of NLP) for organising such an epic and NLP wisdom packed weekend 💫
Of course, there’s a LOT more to the Lightning Process than my brief explanation above so here’s the official website where you can find out more about the neuroscience behind how it all works and also contact HO if you’re stuck in some way in your life and are interested in doing the LP yourself ➜ https://lightningprocess.co.uk

Long story very short though for now….
In 1992, at the age of 17, I became ill. Approx. four years later I was diagnosed with M.E./CFS and Fibromyalgia and I went on to spend the following twenty four years chronically ill. I was predominately bed-bound, often in a wheelchair and from time to time, on morphine and valium for chronic bone, muscle and joint pain. It was unquestionably my most challenging of years.
But the 24th of May 2016 was my very first day of being on the Lightning Process course and from THAT very day I never sat in a wheelchair again but more importantly for me, I never relapsed again and have spent the last VERY happy 7 years since… rock climbing, mountain biking, hill walking, travelling and for a couple of years in there somewhere I was living in my van in the heart of the Snowdonian mountains all whilst holding down a VERY physically demanding job working as a Duty Manager for the YHA in N. Wales 🏴
And now, I have my own business as a Mindset Coach and it’s now my life’s purpose to enable others to figure out and dismantle whatever it is that’s holding them back from living the life they desire and deserve so that they can resolve that block and create an empowered present and beautiful future for themselves that they so desire and deserve ✯
And whilst 7 years ago today, I ‘showed up’ and ‘did the work’ I truly do owe ALL of the above to Phil.
And I don’t say/write this lightly.
In the 24 years of trying all the conventional and alternative options I’d yet to find anything that made even a dent in the daily chronic pain.
The Lightning Process however, was a literal lightning bolt that changed my entire life and world and gave me back beyond what I ever dreamed was possible. Not because I was being negative about my future but rather because it simply became more painful by the years to watch any hope of a healthy future drift further into the distance.
So to say I am grateful to Phil would be the BIGGEST understatement imaginable.
And I know I am not the only one who is grateful to Phil for the LP.
There’s circa 25,000 of us of us out here fully living our lives! 😃⚡️
The first best decision I ever made in my life?
Going on the Lighting Process course in 2016 🙌🏻
The second best decision I ever made in my life?
Doing ALL of my coaching training with Phil in 2022 👌🏻
And so another ‘from the very first day of being on the Lightning Process course in 2016’,… it was a given that at some point I would do the training with Phil and become a coach myself. I just needed to first go out into the world and figure out who I was as a healthy 41 year old. I needed to go have some fun, climb some rocks, drink some whiskey, explore the world around me and give myself the time I needed to truly learn on every level of my being that I now was the SUPER healthy me I’d always so very deeply longed to be 💜
So in 2022, I wasn’t one bit surprised to find myself signing up for a year of training with Phil that has resulted in me now being able to say I am an Advanced Master Practitioner of NLP, Coaching and Hypnotherapy.
And I truly have learned from one of the NLP BEST 🙌🏻
Oh and the third best ever life decision that I’ve only just recently made is that I’m going to do the Lightning Process practitioner training this summer too so stay tuned for news on THAT awesome thing that’s about to happen and how you’ll be able to do the Lightning Process with me… at some point in the nearish future⚡️
And I truly offer this free conversation with zero obligation to take on any kind of coaching.
You can literally just book a call to ask me questions about my story.
If that’s what would help you.
You see I now get to ‘pay it forward’.
I’ve literally ‘walked the walk’ (the bedbound version of that!) and now I’m ‘talking the talk’.
And I now get to wake up every morning and fulfil what I now know to be my life’s purpose.
Half of that is coaching but the other half is telling the story.
And I do that now daily in speaking events, on radio shows and podcasts and most importantly, in 1:1 conversations with the likes of you.
I would have loved to have had a conversation with me somewhere in the midst of those 24 years of chronic illness times as I believe it would have enabled me to make that shift to doing the LP and getting my health and life back sooner rather than later.
So if that conversation would help you in some way… please do come have it with me.
Like me back in 1992, that conversation might just give you the hope and the light at the end of the tunnel that you’re in need of ツ
I am an Advanced Master Practitioner of NLP, Coaching and Hypnotherapy + a Practitioner of IEMT.
